Serving All of Sea Cliff
Sea Cliff is an unincorporated community in Ventura County, situated about 9 miles northwest of the city of Ventura. This small, quiet community delivers a laid-back, peaceful attitude that is life on the beach personified. But, Sea Cliff is also within easy reach of all of the amenities of the big city.
Utopia Management is well known as Southern California’s largest property management company, specializing in both residential and commercial properties. If you are thinking of purchasing a rental property in the 93001 zip code, which includes Sea Cliff, consider letting us handle the day-to-day tasks of property management for you. Our services include:
Marketing and Advertising: In order to increase exposure for your Sea Cliff property, we will use a blend of online and offline marketing strategies. After posting your property on a variety of popular rental websites, we will use property signage and the Utopia referral base to reach as many potential tenants as possible. This advertising program has proven so successful that we are generally able to fill vacancies within a month – at current market rates.
Tenant Screening: As we know that you simply want the absolute best possible tenant in your property, we put every qualified applicant through a careful screening process. This process includes a credit check, driver’s license and social security card verification, and a search for prior evictions.
Management and Consulting: When you choose Utopia Management to manage your Sea Cliff property, you’ll get a skilled team of professionals led by a manager with area-specific training. This team will not only handle the daily concerns of managing your property, such as collecting rent and serving legal notices, but they will keep you updated on everything that happens with your property and act as your property consultant. They can advise you on matters such as assessing a fair rent for the area and how to get your property ready to be shown to potential tenants.
Maintenance and Repairs: Once the property has been rented, it is important to keep up with routine maintenance and to quickly take care of any problems that may arise. Utopia Management employs our own team of maintenance technicians who are often able to deal with repair issues in-house, but we can also contract the work out to third-party vendors in the area. We always ensure that the job is done promptly and with as little cost as possible.
Accounting: We understand how important it is for you to have access to the financial records of your property at all times. For this reason, we’ve created the owner web portal that allows you to log in and view a confidential monthly statement, as well as year to date information for tax purposes. Our accounting staff is also available to speak with you whenever you have questions.
When you choose Utopia Management to manage your Sea Cliff rental property, you can rest assured that both it and your tenants are in the best possible hands. Call us today to find out how to get started.
