Discounts On Larger Portfolios
25+ years Experience
Port Hueneme sits adjacent to the iconic Silver Strand Beach and Channel Islands neighborhood. Most of this neighborhood consists of the Naval Construction Battalion Center and Port of Hueneme. Along the eastern edge are homes, schools and parks favored by members of the navy and their families. Locals spend the bulk of their free time surfing, fishing, and strolling down the beachfront. For an historic view of the neighborhood, residents take a walk down to the Lighthouse Promenade, where they can also enjoy a picnic or barbecue with friends, family, and neighbors.

Marketing Your Rental

We hold regular onsite events to quickly identify tenants interested in renting your investment properties. Our methods allow us to consistently meet our 30-day goal of signing a renter.
Tenant Screening Services
To make sure that we always uncover the best tenants possible, our team performs extensive screening on each qualified applicant. The screening process involves a thorough review of the applicant’s employment, credit, and rental histories to rule out problematic candidates. We strive to drastically decrease the chance of late payments, evictions, and lease defaults by finding an ideal renter the first time around.

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.
