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.

MaryAnn and her team made my transition from young homeowner to landlord so easy. I was incredibly nervous about the process, but she and her team handled everything and gave me peace of mind. When I decided I wanted to sell my place, she and her team handled everything seamlessly as well. Being out of state now, I was concerned about the distance, but it proved to be no problem for them. Her team is always professional and responsive. Thanks, Hoffman Realty!

Got a call from Hoffman last Friday, the 14th, early evening. Expected to hear the usual--tenant was complaining of...…. Turned out to be something new. Tenant's rent check bounced, though this had never happened in 4 years. The call had come from Pam Pagel, my Hoffman accountant, who just wanted to let me know why the monthly owner's draw would be late. I've had late draws before, but this was the first time I ever received a call pre-empting my concern. Thank you, Pamela Pagel!!!!!

We have been a tenant in a home managed by Hoffman Realty going on our 3rd year. Our main contact is Amanda Coffman and what a great experience it has been! Amanda responds immediately to any requests, arranges for items to be addressed immediately and follows up to see if we were satisfied with the results. She goes above and beyond for tenants and if I were an owner would feel like my property is in the best hands. Additionally, anyone we come into contact with from Hoffman Realty both in the office and out are professional, pleasant and make sure all issues are resolved to everyone's satisfaction. It truly makes us feel like home!

From the beginning we received help with the leasing process from MaryAnn, Jeanette is doing an outstanding job of managing our property and Pamela is sending helpful accounting reports on monthly basis. Thank you all for making the leasing process comfortable, professional and easy! Very highly recommended to family and friends.

I tell everyone how happy I am with Hoffman Realty. I know my home is in the best of hands with Amanda. I don't live in the area anymore, and as a former tenant myself, I am very appreciative of how they take care of my tenants. They are quick to respond to any emergencies and never dodge calls. They will be in charge of my town home as long as I own it.

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.
