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.

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.

Maryann and her team has been exceptional since the first day I contacted the company, 5 yrs ago. I worked with the Hoffman team for the rental and then sale of my property. They are responsive, professional, accountable and respectful towards my needs. They are the BEST management team I've worked with and I highly recommend their services. Thank you Maryann.

I can’t even say enough about this company! I have been working with them regarding my personal residence turned rental property since 2008. In 2008, life circumstances brought me across the country. MaryAnn Hoffman and the entire team at Hoffman Realty has been an invaluable support system to me and my family. They are exemplary in every area of business! They are quick to return responses, patient with questions, organized in their Portal, reasonable with all expectations and etc......When it came time to sell our rental MaryAnn was the first person that came to mind. I have to admit, I have never had a more smooth closing. I was informed of all the large and small details along the way and felt like I was there in person when in actually I was over 1700 miles away. Like I said, I really can’t say enough. I 100% recommend this company to any person/family looking to rent/lease/buy/sell a residence in the Tampa area. Thank you, Monica!

I HIGHLY recommend Hoffman Realty for any of your real estate needs. I have been using them for about 5 years to help me find quality tenants for my Tampa home. They were always very responsive to my needs and provided quality tenants in a timely manner at an affordable price. Thanks to Hoffman Realty, I have been fortunate to never have a problem with tenants. They really do their due diligence to make sure that me and my home are well taken care of. When it came time to sell my home, Hoffman Realty was able to negotiate a deal for an above asking cash offer the very next day and even gave me a discount on their fees as a thank you for our business through the years. I am very happy with the services MaryAnn Hoffman and her team at Hoffman Realty have provided and I am looking forward to doing business with them again in the future. Thank you very much, MaryAnn and Hoffman Realty!

I contracted with Hoffman Realty for 8 years to professionally manage my townhome. I worked with Mary Ann Hoffman and Amanda Coffman. They made it so easy for me to rent my townhome and not have to worry about getting involved in the daily, weekly and monthly dealings that go with being a landlord. They managed my townhome in the Westchase area. They made it so easy to be a landlord as they take all the heavy lifting off the owner. They managed the tenant and unit, made all repairs needed in a timely manner and always credited my account with my tenants rent in a timely manner. Even at times when I had a “not so good tenant”, they took the stress off of me as they dealt with any and all the issues that go with being a landlord. I highly recommend them to anyone that wants to be a stress free landlord.

Can't say enough good things about Hoffman Realty. First, their systems are good, so it's easy to pay rent, get in contact, etc. More importantly, when you do need a person to help out/solve a problem, etc. , they are on point, totally with you and easy to work with. Jeannette Hardy deserves special mention in this regard, but I should also say that Rick Padgett couldn't have been more professional in his dealings with me. Overall, I'm quite pleased: Hoffman manages to succeed in the the tricky balancing act between protecting the landlord's interest and making sure that a tenant really feels at home.

MaryAnn Hoffman recently sold our small condo on Bayshore Blvd. It’s a very small studio in a very expensive area and in a difficult market at the time. The number of potentially qualified and interested buyers was limited. MaryAnn Hoffman got the deal done through sheer tenacity. Always upbeat and proactive, MaryAnn found an excellent buyer for us. The deal was great for both sides. I definitely recommend MaryAnn if you want a very knowledgeable, hardworking and effective realtor to sell your property. She won’t quit until she finds the right buyer for you. She’s definitely five stars.

I rented a home that was professionally managed by Hoffman Realty. From the time that we inquired about the rental property to the time of move-out my expectations were exceeded with the professionalism and responsiveness of the team there. I rented an older home which had some maintenance issues come up. I was thoroughly impressed with their platform's responsiveness with our concerns and the ability to contact quality vendors who came out to fix our problems as soon as possible. Also, Amanda was awesome!

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.

Hi Megan, Thank you for your kind words about our team at Hoffman Realty, we appreciate it, MaryAnn

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.
