Discounts On Larger Portfolios
25+ years Experience
The town of Santa Paula has grown from groves of orange trees to more than 8,500 housing units across nearly five square miles. Plans to erect an additional 500 homes on the outskirts of the town are in the works for 2016. The southern edge of this neighborhood runs along the banks of the Santa Clara River. Fishermen come here to catch trout of all kinds throughout the open season. A good school system, plentiful parks, and well stocked libraries make this an excellent place to raise a young family. Close proximity to Oxnard and Ventura allow for immense career growth without sacrificing access to a quiet, small town lifestyle.

Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management.

We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.
Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind. As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.
Maintaining your rental property, as well as being available to deal with emergency repairs, can be a source of frustration for landlords.

This relationship translates to purchasing power to help Utopia’s clients get a better than market price.
Managing both expenses and income is all handled by our accounting department with use of your owner web portal. Tenants appreciate the ability to pay rent online, which also decreases delinquency.
