Our Property Management Guarantees for Eastern Pinellas County and Elsewhere in the Tampa Area

Our Tampa property managers minimize your risk of owning investment property, while guaranteeing your results. Our guarantees are just one reason we’re the best property management in Tampa.

Lease Guarantee

We guarantee your Lease! Should any tenants we place into your rental home move out and break their lease during the first 12-months of their initial lease term, we will find a replacement FOR FREE. We have been guaranteeing our landlord’s leases for over 10 years, and during this time, none of our landlords have had to pay two full leasing fees in the same 12 month period.

Read Conditions

Conditions: Federal military relocation, tenant death and legal lease terminations are excluded. If we are able to recover monies from your tenant to compensate for their lease break, they will be applied in this order: (1st) to pay any unpaid rents due to our landlord caused by the lease break; (2nd) if there are funds remaining, to compensate Hoffman Realty for costs incurred resulting from the lease break.

Eviction Protection Guarantee

We guarantee that if our screened tenant has to be evicted, we will cover the cost. If an eviction becomes necessary at your property, we will cover the eviction costs for up to $2,000.

Read Conditions

Conditions: This only applies to tenants we place into your rental home. Not available with all plans. Requires a Qualified Management Plan.

Animal Protection Guarantee

We guarantee your home will not be damaged by an approved animal. We screen each pet, charge a reasonable fee, and guarantee that you (the property owner) will not pay out of pocket for pet damage. We pay for any damages (exceeding the security deposit) caused by an approved animal up to $1,000.

My brother and I inherited a family property that we chose to sell because we both live out of state. Before finding the Hoffman Realty group, we were nervous and unsure about how the process would go. I'm so happy to say that from our first correspondence with Amanda and MaryAnn, we knew we were in the right hands. They had helpful answers to all of our questions and made the process so easy that being out of state didn't even seem to matter. They had a buyer lined up in just a week and handled every step of the process seamlessly! I was impressed with their great teamwork and professionalism and am so thankful to Hoffman Realty for making an otherwise daunting process so pleasant.

I've had multiple rentals managed by Hoffman for the last 10 years. I'm a property manager in another state so I know the business and these guys are top notch. They manage my homes well, keep them occupied with low vacancy rate, and helped me sell one of my homes recently. I've used multiple property managers until I found my home with Hoffman.

Hi Matt, Thank you for your nice feedback about Hoffman Realty LLC. It means a lot to us that you think we do a good job for you, especially as you are also a property manager and know residential management. MaryAnn

I don't regret my choice to go with Hoffman Realty to manage my property. They were very professional and made sure my house was well maintained. After 5 years as my property manager, my house was so well maintained that when it came time to sell I didn't have to repair anything. Thank you for taking such great care of our house and us as customers.

FAQ

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.
