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

Hoffman Realty was the management company for the home we lived in for the last 2 years. They were very responsive with maintenance requests and were always quick to respond when we had questions or problems. We moved out less than a month ago and have already received our full security deposit back. We just bought a home but If we were to rent again, I wouldn’t hesitate to rent through Hoffman again.

I have been living at a wonderful property under Hoffman’s care for 3 years. Each time there is an issue they are very quick to respond and get our needs meet in every way they can. This past experience was fantastic. Doreen went over and above to make sure our daily schedule was not interrupted with having to take off work for a contractor. She reached out and found someone whom could work around our schedule and we are so grateful for her and her dedication to us . Thank you Doreen and the Hoffman crew for having to put up with us these last 3 years. I hope we arn’t too much of a hassle. Haha. Thanx again!

Although I didn’t end up renting a Hoffman home, I had a wonderful experience. I worked with Linda Ercia, she was extremely nice & always quick to respond. She answered all my questions & worked hard to get us arranged with a home we liked. She left the impression that Hoffman would be an attentive management company. When I am looking again in the future, I will definitely keep Hoffman Realty & Linda in mind !

My husband and I rent one of the houses that Hoffman Realty manages and Doreen worked very hard for us to get the home owners to approve to replace all the screens on the pool Lanai. The screens are in horrible condition. At first the homeowners would only agree to replace a few of the panels but with Doreen's persistence, they finally agreed to replace the entire screen. THANK YOU SO MUCH DOREEN!! We truly appreciate you!!!

My wife and I cannot speak highly enough about Mary Ann and the entire team at Hoffman Realty! From start to finish, they have been professional, kind, and responsive. We rented from Hoffman Realty for two years and then later purchased a home through Hoffman. Throughout the entire process, Mary Ann was there for us every step of the way, answered all of our questions, and made sure that all repairs were done in a timely manner. Thank you, Mary Ann, and Hoffman for helping us rent a home and then buy a home!

It’s been 10 years that I’ve worked with and employed Hoffman Realty as my one and only property managers for my house in the Tampa area. They’ve been fantastic throughout! The core team of Jeannette, MaryAnn and Andrew have decades of combined experience in the business and it shows in their attention to detail, network of contacts, professionalism, and responsiveness to issues with my house. Throughout COVID and hurricanes, Hoffman Realty has always been prepared and looked out for the best interests of my property. THANK YOU, HOFFMAN REALTY!!!

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.
