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.

I can't say enough positive things about Hoffman Realty and my experience with ALL of the staff. Always professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. I especially want to give 5 Star compliments to Nibea (Nina) Vargas who is a truly extraordinary realty specialist. I am so lucky to have found Nina and couldn't be happier with the service and results that she has provided. She is a truly top notch realtor who is willing to fight for you and with an in-depth knowledge of the greater Tampa market. Couldn't ask for more and would highly recommend.

Hoffman Realty is the best thing happened when I decided to rent my house. MaryAnn and the entire Hoffman team are amazing. They took great care of my house and rented it out in no time, while I am in Canada. Thanks to MaryAnn and her team, Nina, Jeanette for constantly in touch, providing me all the details, took care of my house in my absence. Special shout-out to Daniel Nichols who did such an awesome job taking care of my property, did the repair and took charge of upgrading my house, so I could have peace of mind. A big thank you Daniel. I highly recommend Hoffman Realty for Property Management as the level of professionalism and care is beyond top notch.

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!!!

I have been working with Hoffman Realty since 2019. We were moving out of state and wanted to rent our home. Their property managers did a fantastic job taking care of all the details that go along with renting a property. As we were out of state, I really needed someone I could rely on to take care of everything. They certainly took care of our home. We just recently sold the property and Mary Ann took great care in making the process smooth and easy. I would recommend Hoffman Realty both for managing a property and for selling a home.

Hoffman Realty has managed two properties for us over the past 9 years. They have been with us every step of the way through ownership and recent sale. They are knowledgeable of the market, professional and patient. When our property was in a path of a hurricane, they had contingency plans to keep us informed as we live in a different state. Perhaps the most positive attribute is the continuity of the team. It has been a pleasure working with the same people over the past decade. I will miss this positive working relationship.

Hoffman Realty, LLC is by far the best real estate company I have ever dealt with. Their agents and brokers are very professional, experienced and beyond friendly. Hoffman Realty made renting my house a breeze, with minimal headaches. They dealt with all issues promptly and efficiently. When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we worked with MaryAnn Hoffman. She is a wonderful agent who is honest and worked diligently to make the sale in 3 months. I would highly recommend Hoffman Realty, LLC.

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.
