Eviction and Landlord Rescue

There are two ways we can help with an eviction:

Evict, and Keep Renting Your Property

Attorneys often charge over $1,000 to start a tenant eviction. Because of our relationship with the #1 eviction Law Firm in Florida, we’re able to offer you a great discount.

Our attorney prepared tenant evictions usually cost you only $695 with this coupon.* You simply cannot find a better price on an attorney prepared tenant eviction. When you hire us as your property manager and we begin the tenant eviction process for you, chances are good your tenant will pay up or move voluntarily. Once the tenant eviction is complete, we’ll make your property ready to rent FAST, and at a good price too. Then we’ll manage your property professionally to reduce the risk of your ever needing another tenant eviction again!

Evict, Then Sell Your Property

List your property for sale with us, and let us put our legal team to work for you. You pay $695 to start an tenant eviction, we assist you in getting the property ready to sell, and you get your property SOLD.

For more information on this program tour our Tampa property management services or just call us toll fee at (888) 643-4549. Calls are answered days and evenings 7 days a week!

*Ready for the “Fine Print”?

As much as we’d love not to have any requirements:

~You have to complete at least one year of managed service with Hoffman Realty or reimburse Hoffman Realty for the dollar value of your coupon.

~You’re required to fund your owner’s reserve escrow account with $500 prior to coupon work. This is how we routinely begin management services for all our clients.

~Limit one coupon per customer, to be used within 30 days after management begins.

I have been a client of Hoffman Realty fo many years as they helped manage my rental property. It has always been an easy process and less stress on me if anything needed to be repaired or addressed, they handled it all. I have worked with Stacy and she’s very knowledgeable and responsive. She’s also very patient with all my questions. The detailed monthly statements were also very helpful and I always knew what to expect, there were never any surprises. I am so happy that I chose them for this experience.

Hoffman Realty has handled my property for over 10 years. I live out of town so it was imperative to find someone I could trust. MaryAnn and Andrew did not disappoint. They’ve managed my property like their own. They’re very knowledgeable. They do their research and manage to get me top dollar for my property. There are no words to express the level of service they provide. If you’re looking for someone you can trust who will take care of your property as their own, look no further. The entire staff is knowledgeable, helpful and communicates well. A special shout out to Jeanette! She’s handled my property for years. She responds right away when I reach out to her. She’s handled countless problems and emergencies. She listens to me when I need help. It’s always with a smile and a caring attitude. Honestly, if it wasn’t for Hoffman Realty, I would have sold my property years ago. Many thanks and gratitude.

I recently moved into a property managed by Hoffman Realty. The property had some issues on the back patio and Stacy Jordan at Hoffman as well as other members of the staff worked with me as the liaison to the owner and arranged to have the patio renovated. I was very happy with the efficiency of their staff overall, to include their retained contractors. Thanks Hoffman!

Once again, high praises to the property management team, Ms. Stacy Jordan, by responding so quickly to our meld request; less than 24 hours response time. Mr. Dennis arrived at our home in a timely manner and fixed our water pressure in a manner of minutes. He also took the time to correct some other minor issues that a meld request was not needed. Thank you, Stacy Jordan, for your excellent turnover maintenance repair time once again. 5 out of 5 stars.

MaryAnn Hoffman and the team have been an absolute pleasure to work with. My dad had been working with the Hoffman team for well over a decade. They make owning property seamless as they manage any tenant issues expeditiously. We recently sold one of the homes in Florida and MaryAnn sold the property in record time! Selling the home with the Hoffman Realty team was a pleasure if you can say that when you're dealing with the sale of a rental home. I will definitely look to the Hoffman team to handle all of our business in Florida going forward. I greatly appreciated the prompt response, professionalism and honesty of the entire team. Thank you MaryAnn!

I've enjoyed working with Hoffman Realty specifically Stacy J. She's always been kind to respond quickly and clarify questions and serves as an advocate for me as a renter. I have not always had the greatest experience with renting myself but the customer service is supportive from this organization and solution focused.

Renting through Hoffman was a breeze. It was very simple to view, and rent this property once I got Nina Ortiz phone. Once I saw the beautiful property, she quickly guided me through the application process. I’ll be in my new home next month. Stacy Jordan is my property Manager for the last year. And just like clockwork, if I needed anything at all she was on it. It was a definite pleasure working with her!

I had a great experience working with Hoffman Realty. They have a very professional and hard working team managing my rental properties for over an year now. Stacy Jordan, who manages my property, had been excellent in handling all matters such as tenant search, property maintenance, and any issue management. She is a pleasure to work and always very prompt with her communication & timely reminders. MaryAnn had been great as well providing direction and guidance on property management and is very transparent with company policies. I highly recommend Hoffman Realty for property management service in the Tampa area.

We really enjoy working with Hoffman Realty. One of my girlfriends told me by word-of-mouth of this company, then I met with MaryAnn, the owner, and I was immediately sold by her kindness, expertise and passion for what she does. I already knew I was in great hands. They made everything super easy and the initiation process overall was very quick. Stacy is our property manager. She is always available to take any questions that I may have. And always has a sense of urgency. She is always kind, and I can tell every time I speak with her on the phone she’s smiling and loves what she does! It was so nice that my husband and I could go on our honeymoon, and Hoffman Realty took care of the rest. They found our tenant did a thorough background check And already had a move-in date by the time we got back from our trip. It was a seamless process. And we didn’t have to worry about finding our own tenant while freshly married. We love Hoffman Realty! Thank you for all that you do! Ken and Jen


Can a home depreciate in value?

Generally, real property never depreciates in value, or more so, it is not very common for property to depreciate. This is why it’s a great investment. Make sure you carefully consider location and community when choosing a home, it can effect the homes future value greatly.

If you are in a newly developed area, do some research on the construction of the surrounding areas being developed to determine if they may effect your homes value.

Is an older home as good a value as a new home?

This is really just a matter of preference, but both newer and older homes offer distinct advantages, depending upon your unique taste and lifestyle.

Older homes can generally cost less than new homes, however, there are many cases where new homes can also cost less then older homes. Most new homes will not have any backyard landscaping and some don”t include any front landscaping either. With an older home, the landscaping is normally already completed and could have 10”s of thousands of dollars in landscaping done, which is included in the purchase price.

Taxes on some older homes may also be lower. Some people are charmed by the elegance of an older home but shy away because they”re concerned about potential maintenance costs. Consider a home warranty to get the peace of mind you deserve. A good Home Warranty plan protects you against unexpected repairs on many home systems and appliances for a full year or more after you move in.

In a new house, you can pick your own color schemes, flooring, kitchen cabinets, appliances, custom wiring for TV”s, electrical, computers, phones and speakers, etc., as well as have more upgrade options. Modern features like media rooms, extra-large closets and extra-large bathrooms and tubs are also more attainable in ground-up construction. In a used home, you rely largely on the previous resident”s tastes and technological whims, unless you plan to farm thousands into a remodeling and rewiring.

New-home designers can use new building materials such as glazed Energy Star windows, thicker insulation and other technology that will lower future energy costs for the owner. Most states now have minimum energy-efficiency requirements for new construction. Kitchens and laundry areas in new homes are designed to house more efficient energy-saving appliances. Older homes, unless they have undergone an energy retrofit, usually cost much more per square foot to air-condition and heat.

Builders have to follow very strict guidelines in new-homes and additions, especially in the West and Northwest, where earthquake safety standards must be observed. In general, new homes are usually more fire-safe and better accommodating of new security and garage-door systems.

Older homes can be better judged for their quality and timeless beauty. New homes that now possess a smooth veneer might reveal the use of substandard building materials or shoddy workmanship over time.

As you can see there are advantages and dis-advantages to each, but it really comes down to what fits you and what you are looking for in a home.

What is a broker?

An agent who is authorized to open and run his/her own agency. All real estate offices have one principal broker.

How can I avoid private mortgage insurance?

The easiest way to avoid PMI is by putting 20% down payment; however, PMI can also be avoided if you only have 5% or 10% for the down payment. The way to accomplish this is via a first and second mortgage combination commonly referred to as 80/10/10^s or 80/15/5^s.

These two methods combine a first mortgage lien for 80% of the home price with a second mortgage lien for either 10% or 15% of the home price leaving the remaining 5% or 10% as the down payment. Because the first lien is at the magical 80% loan=to-value, there is no PMI required, even though a second mortgage is being |piggybacked| onto the financing thus allowing for the lessor down payment.

While the second lien terms are not as attractive as first lien rates, the second mortgage is still home mortgage interest and thus deductible as such on your federal tax return where PMI is insurance and offers no deduction.

What is the difference between being prequalified and preapproved for a loan?

If you’re prequalified it means that you POTENTIALLY could get a loan for the amount stated to you, assuming that all of the information you provide to the bank is accurate and true. This is not as strong as a preapproval.

If you’re preapproved, it means that you have undergone the extensive financial background check, which includes looking at your credit history, previous tax returns and verifying your employment – and the lender is willing to give you a loan, basically meaning you’re approved!

You will usually be provided an accurate figure which shows the maximum amount that you are approved for. Most sellers prefer buyers that have been preapproved because they know that there will not be any problems with the purchase of their home.

How is interest calculated on a mortgage loan?

Most mortgages originated today calculate interest in arrears, unlike consumer loans which calculate interest to the date of payment receipt. As an example, when borrowers pay their February mortgage payments, they are paying the January interest. This method of calculating interest is based on a 360 day year in which each month has 30 days.
