Santa Susana, a charmingly rural community, is an unincorporated area located partially inside the city of Simi Valley and partially inside the Los Angeles neighborhood of Chatsworth. The area’s rich history includes sites such as the Burro Flats Painted Cave, where pictographs from the Chumash Native Americans who originally settled the area can be seen. A more modern point of interest includes the Corriganville Movie Ranch, where scenes from such movie favorites as The Lone Ranger, Adventures of Superman, and Star Trek were filmed.
With a population of little more than a thousand, Santa Susana is a quaint community of property owners and renters. If you are looking to join them by purchasing a rental property in the 93012 zip code, Utopia Management can help you to make the most of your investment. Our unique package of property management services is designed to minimize the day-to-day worry of property management.
Marketing and Advertising: Our two decades of experience in managing properties in Southern California has allowed us to develop a marketing strategy that typically results in filling any vacancy within thirty days. We start by listing your property on a number of popular rental websites, placing signs on the property itself, and utilizing our wide referral base.
Tenant Screening: We use a thorough tenant screening process to ensure that you get only the most viable tenants before a contract is signed. From ID and background checks, to pay stub and credit verifications, we are rigorous in our selection process. We also search for prior evictions and offer the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program.”
Management and Consulting: Utopia Management will take over many of the daily tasks that go along with managing your rental property, including collecting rents, serving legal notices, and taking care of legal proceedings,. We also offer our industry specific knowledge and expertise on any matters relating to your property, such as assessing a fair rent for your Santa Susana property or getting it show ready.
Maintenance and Repairs: In addition to holding a general contractor’s license (#792427) that allows our team of maintenance technicians to complete most repair work in-house, we have a list of local vendors who we trust to work on your property. When work needs to be done, we decide on who can do it with as little inconvenience to your tenants and as little cost to yourself as possible.
Accounting: Protecting your financial investment is as important to Utopia Management as it is to you. This is why our skilled accounting team is always working to provide you with accurate and up-to-date information about the financial health of your property. You can log in to our owner web portal from the Utopia website at anytime to view your monthly statement and see all recent financial activity.
