Our team at Utopia Property Management can help you to improve your investments throughout this region and beyond. We will use our 20 years of experience in the real estate field to maximize your profits and improve the performance of your investment properties. Our team will help you with:

Rental Marketing

As technology has improved over the years, we added new online tools to our advertising program. All of our listings are posted on high traffic websites that are backed by leaders in the real estate industry. We combine online listings with local events to attract as many prospective tenants as possible to your available properties. Our goal is to find qualified tenants for your rental home within 30 days of posting the first listing.

Tenant Screening

We strive to keep tenant turnover to an absolute minimum by performing comprehensive screening services on every applicant. Our team verifies all of the information on the application to find the perfect fit for your rental home. We identify tenants with suitable income levels, rental histories, and credit backgrounds to minimize risk and keep turnover low.

Management Services

We will provide property management consultation services to keep you abreast of the latest changes in the real estate industry. We share information about market trends and techniques that you can use to maximize the revenues from your rental properties. You will learn how to set rents, stage homes, and advertise your rentals - all from our professional consultations.

Property Upkeep

When managing rental properties, it is important to respond to all repair requests in a timely manner. You can reduce the normal stress associated with these requests by delegating repair tasks to our team of qualified professionals. Our repair technicians operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) to ensure that all repairs are performed to an industry standard.

Accounting Assistance

Our accounting team reviews your financial information to generate monthly reports on all of your managed rentals. These reports cover the revenue and expense categories in a detailed manner to give you a clear outlook on the performance of your investment properties. You can access these reports through the Utopia web portal anytime using a computer, phone, or tablet.

THOROUGH TENANT SCREENING AND LESS THAN 1% EVICTION RATE

Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management. Our applicant screening includes income, rental history, employment, and eviction search to evaluate for potential delinquency issues. 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. At Utopia, we have a staff of in-house technicians available for most work, under general contractors license (#792427), meaning we can complete work as quickly as possible and pass the savings on to our clients.  When necessary, we also have a network of trusted vendors for specialized work, some of which we have been using for over fifteen years.
