Summerland, a small picturesque beach town in Santa Barbara County, has been immortalized in popular culture by being used as the title of a T.V. show and multiple songs, including one by the band Everclear. Lying directly on the coast and enjoying average temperature highs that fluctuate between 65 and 76 degrees year round, it is easy to see what is so alluring about Summerland. It is a truly iconic location that is all about the summertime and California living.
According to data collected in the 2010 US Census, 47.3% of the housing units in Summerland were occupied by renters. If you are considering jumping into this healthy rental market by purchasing a rental property, Utopia Management can give you the tools and management assistance you need to ensure a profitable investment. Our services include:
Marketing and Advertising: To ensure that that the word gets out about your desirable Summerland property, we will use the most up-to-date marketing strategies, including both online and offline methods. Our marketing program has been so successful that we are generally able to fill any vacancy for our clients within a month.
Tenant Screening: Of course, we understand the importance not just of filling a vacancy, but of finding the perfect tenant, someone who can be relied on to keep their contract and pay their rent in a timely manner. This is why we run a thorough series of background and credit checks on all applicants who are eighteen years or older and even offer an optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program.”
Management and Consulting: From advising you on a suitable rental rate for your Summerland property, to helping you get the property in rent ready condition, your Utopia Management team will be there every step of the way. Once your property has been rented, we will continue to assist with management tasks by enforcing HOA rules, serving any necessary legal notices, and keeping you updated with monthly owner’s statements.
Maintenance and Repairs: We rely on local vendors for some of your property’s maintenance and repair needs. However, we do also have a general contractor’s license (#792427) that allows us to complete most work in-house when we feel that we can do so more efficiently or at a better cost to you.
Accounting: We understand that your rental property is first and foremost a financial investment. This is why our skilled team of accountants works hard to provide you with up-to-date information on the financial health of your property. You can log in to the owner’s web portal at any time to view a monthly report that shows a complete record of all rents collected and bills paid on your behalf.
Purchasing rental property in Summerland is a wise financial investment in the Southern California area. If you would rather not deal with the daily worries of property management, give Utopia Management a call today and let one of our friendly representatives show you how we can make owning your Summerland rental property a breeze.
