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.

Read Conditions

Conditions: Service and Assistance animals excluded as we are not allowed to screen.

21-Day Rental Guarantee

We guarantee that we can find a quality tenant for your home in 21 days, or the first two months of management fees are FREE!

We have had an excellent experience with Hoffman Realty. Stacy Jordan specifically has managed our rental property. She is quick to respond to emails and maintenance requests (there have been few) and more importantly, she follows up! Highly recommend!

MaryAnn managed our rental house in Tampa without a hitch for two years. When we were ready to sell, she oversaw all the repairs, helped us get the house to market, sold, and closed within a month of listing—all with clear communication along the way. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely experience with the management company. Very responsive and honest. We put a lot of effort into cleaning the place when we left and they were honorable enough to give a full refund of the deposit. Jeanette was friendly and quick to respond to any issues. The only complaint would have to be in regards to contractual obligations in regards to exterminators and carpet cleaning. But I suppose that was on the owner, asking for an exterminator to kill imaginary bugs upon moving out. No biggy tho.

She answered any questions I had And made sure I understood everything. She was always one phone call away. Definitely will use her again for any future properties that need managing! Thank you MaryAnn Hoffman!!

What a difference Hoffman has made. To me the big difference is the people. Stacy has probably made the biggest impact for us. She is always quick to respond, communicates with us early and is always a pleasure to work with. She remembers our individual needs and accommodates them even though she has a large number of clients. Their portal is really good too 🙂

I was skeptical at first about my landlord hiring a management firm, but its been more than great. Stacy goes above and beyond as my contact person. Her professionalism and attention to detail is impeccable. Thrilled with the timeliness to repairs and punctuality of the contractors. All super friendly and trustworthy. Only hoping my rent doesn't go up in June!

We recently switched to Hoffman Realty from a different rental management company. Renting became fun again for us and for our tenants. We work mainly with Stacy who is calm, knowledgeable, and confident in her skills. We are recommending Stacy to everyone we know.

My first interaction with the Hoffman team was to get advice on renting out a property of mine after we had to relocate to another state for work. Through the entire process the whole team provided the support needed to get the property listed quickly - ultimately they helped me find great tenets who took fantastic care of the home. The team also helped put my mind at ease as two different hurricanes came through the area - they helped prepare for the storm and were very quick to send me ‘all clear’ messages and photos after. Lastly, I recently decided to sell the property after the last tenants decided not to renew - I decided to use the Hoffman team to list the property for sale, and it was the most painless home sale I have ever been a part of. Would definitely work with again if I invested in additional property in the area.

I am currently renting a home with Hoffman Realty, and I am very satisfied with how everything is going. The house was in great shape from the start and work orders for any issues are resolved very quickly. Nina, Jeanette, and Benji have went above and beyond every step of the way providing any information that I requested. I am very grateful for their excellent customer service and how easy communicating back and forth is.

Our rental experience with Nina and Stacy has been great. They have been so helpful and responsive. Coming from NY we were skeptical to send a deposit before signing a lease, however, Nina put our concerns at ease and we’re so glad we did because they have both been so wonderful and have made our rental process and move-in a breeze.

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.
