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!!!

Thank you to the entire team at Hoffman Realty. MaryAnn and her team provided exceptional property management services for two years. When it was time to sell, Hoffman Realty made it such a seamless process. The house looked amazing inside and out and MaryAnn was on top of everything all the way through closing. After a string of bad tenants and unresponsive property managers, I cannot express how thankful we were to find Hoffman Realty. Thank you so much for making the last couple of years so stress free. I highly recommend the team at Hoffman Realty!

We were referred to Amanda Coffman at Hoffman Realty and we were very impressed. She was always on time to appointments, took care of scheduling showings, inspections, appraisals coordinated with the tenant to ease the burden of accessing her home. She went out of her way to make sure everything was taken care of no stone was left unturned. This was by far the easiest real estate transaction we have been part of. I would highly recommend Amanda Coffman and the team at Hoffman Realty.

Hoffman Realty has addressed any concerns of the tenant quickly, which is important to me as a landlord. In addition, MaryAnn assures that several bids by vendors are obtained in order to assure fair charges to the landlord, and Pam Pagel does an excellent job of preparing and explaining monthly and annual finance reports. MaryAnn also helped us convert our rental to a successful sale!

FAQ

Can a home depreciate in value?
Generally, real property never depreciates in value, or more so, it is not very common for property to depreciate. This is why it’s a great investment. Make sure you carefully consider location and community when choosing a home, it can effect the homes future value greatly.

If you are in a newly developed area, do some research on the construction of the surrounding areas being developed to determine if they may effect your homes value.

Is an older home as good a value as a new home?
This is really just a matter of preference, but both newer and older homes offer distinct advantages, depending upon your unique taste and lifestyle.

Older homes can generally cost less than new homes, however, there are many cases where new homes can also cost less then older homes. Most new homes will not have any backyard landscaping and some don”t include any front landscaping either. With an older home, the landscaping is normally already completed and could have 10”s of thousands of dollars in landscaping done, which is included in the purchase price.

Taxes on some older homes may also be lower. Some people are charmed by the elegance of an older home but shy away because they”re concerned about potential maintenance costs. Consider a home warranty to get the peace of mind you deserve. A good Home Warranty plan protects you against unexpected repairs on many home systems and appliances for a full year or more after you move in.

In a new house, you can pick your own color schemes, flooring, kitchen cabinets, appliances, custom wiring for TV”s, electrical, computers, phones and speakers, etc., as well as have more upgrade options. Modern features like media rooms, extra-large closets and extra-large bathrooms and tubs are also more attainable in ground-up construction. In a used home, you rely largely on the previous resident”s tastes and technological whims, unless you plan to farm thousands into a remodeling and rewiring.

New-home designers can use new building materials such as glazed Energy Star windows, thicker insulation and other technology that will lower future energy costs for the owner. Most states now have minimum energy-efficiency requirements for new construction. Kitchens and laundry areas in new homes are designed to house more efficient energy-saving appliances. Older homes, unless they have undergone an energy retrofit, usually cost much more per square foot to air-condition and heat.

Builders have to follow very strict guidelines in new-homes and additions, especially in the West and Northwest, where earthquake safety standards must be observed. In general, new homes are usually more fire-safe and better accommodating of new security and garage-door systems.

Older homes can be better judged for their quality and timeless beauty. New homes that now possess a smooth veneer might reveal the use of substandard building materials or shoddy workmanship over time.

As you can see there are advantages and dis-advantages to each, but it really comes down to what fits you and what you are looking for in a home.

What is a broker?
An agent who is authorized to open and run his/her own agency. All real estate offices have one principal broker.
How can I avoid private mortgage insurance?
The easiest way to avoid PMI is by putting 20% down payment; however, PMI can also be avoided if you only have 5% or 10% for the down payment. The way to accomplish this is via a first and second mortgage combination commonly referred to as 80/10/10^s or 80/15/5^s.

These two methods combine a first mortgage lien for 80% of the home price with a second mortgage lien for either 10% or 15% of the home price leaving the remaining 5% or 10% as the down payment. Because the first lien is at the magical 80% loan=to-value, there is no PMI required, even though a second mortgage is being |piggybacked| onto the financing thus allowing for the lessor down payment.

While the second lien terms are not as attractive as first lien rates, the second mortgage is still home mortgage interest and thus deductible as such on your federal tax return where PMI is insurance and offers no deduction.

What is the difference between being prequalified and preapproved for a loan?
If you’re prequalified it means that you POTENTIALLY could get a loan for the amount stated to you, assuming that all of the information you provide to the bank is accurate and true. This is not as strong as a preapproval.

If you’re preapproved, it means that you have undergone the extensive financial background check, which includes looking at your credit history, previous tax returns and verifying your employment – and the lender is willing to give you a loan, basically meaning you’re approved!

You will usually be provided an accurate figure which shows the maximum amount that you are approved for. Most sellers prefer buyers that have been preapproved because they know that there will not be any problems with the purchase of their home.

How is interest calculated on a mortgage loan?
Most mortgages originated today calculate interest in arrears, unlike consumer loans which calculate interest to the date of payment receipt. As an example, when borrowers pay their February mortgage payments, they are paying the January interest. This method of calculating interest is based on a 360 day year in which each month has 30 days.
