Hoffman Realty was first class throughout the time we worked with them! They were our property managers for four years and our real estate team once we decided to sale. My wife and I are both in the Air Force stationed in Texas and our home was in Tampa. At no point did we ever have to worry about our property because Hoffman was always on top of everything. They made the renting and selling of our home extremely easy. Thank you MaryAnn!!!!

Hoffman Realty has addressed any concerns of the tenant quickly, which is important to me as a landlord. In addition, MaryAnn assures that several bids by vendors are obtained in order to assure fair charges to the landlord, and Pam Pagel does an excellent job of preparing and explaining monthly and annual finance reports.

We have been very pleased with Hoffman Realty as our property managers in Tampa. There was a clog in the bathroom shower and Jeanette Hardy of Hoffman Realty, immediately contacted us when notified by the tenant of the problem. It was resolved ASAP by Hoffman's notification to a plumber. I feel by keeping our tenant happy the tenant will want to stay in our rental.

What insurance do I need as a Landlord?

For hazard coverage, you will need a “Dwelling Policy” for your house or a “Rented to Others” Rider for your condo. For liability coverage, make sure you have sufficient general liability coverage in your hazard policy or through a separate commercial liability policy.
If you are new to being a landlord you should consult with your insurance agent to ensure you are properly protected.

How should a landlord hold escrow?

If your tenant gives you a security deposit or advance rent these funds must go into escrow. In Florida, it is best to open a separate bank account to hold escrow as the law requires that these funds not be commingled with your personal funds. The law dictates this account should be at a “Florida banking institution” and if you choose an interest-bearing account, 75% of the interest or 5% of the funds deposited must be paid to your tenant.

What is a Stipulation?

A Stipulation is a court-approved Payment Plan for a tenant that has fallen behind on their rent payments to their Landlord. It is a way to avoid completing an eviction for your tenants who are serious about getting caught up.

Should I accept pets?

Almost 80% of renters in the Tampa Bay area have a pet, so landlords that promote a “no pet” policy miss a huge number of potential renters. If you limit the pool of potential renters it takes longer to rent your property. Allowing the right kind of pets reduces your vacancy losses by ensuring that your property stays occupied and rented.

Should you rent your property furnished or unfurnished?

Typically short-term rentals are offered furnished as they are used for vacation or corporate housing. However, long-term rentals are typically offered unfurnished, because most long-term renters have their own furniture. In our experience, only a very small number of renters are looking for a furnished long-term rental in the Tampa Bay area, so it will take you a long time to find a long-term renter if you only offer your property furnished.

Should I rent my property without a background check?

All landlords want to rent their property to good tenants. The only effective (and legal) way to know if your potential new tenants will be good neighbors and trustworthy of your property is to perform a thorough background check. This should include credit, criminal, sex-offender, income, and prior landlord references. It’s better to leave your property vacant than to rent to the wrong person.
