Hoffman Realty has handled the leasing of my Tampa townhome since 2009. I have always found them to be professional, responsive and quick to address my tenants needs. They have also been excellent at keeping me informed and ensuring that my townhome was excellently maintained. So when it came time to sell my townhome this year, my first choice was Hoffman Realty to handle the sale. The whole experience was excellent. My home sold quickly and the process was smooth. Very pleased. Highly recommend Hoffman Realty!

We are currently renting a privately owned home through Hoffman Realty. Every time we have needed something, we reach out to our representative and she responds within a day. We recently had a maintenance request that required attention sooner rather then later. I submitted the requested and within 20 mins Hoffman had responded and connected us with a local company to help get it fixed. Great organization

Hoffman Realty was the management company for the home we lived in for the last 2 years. They were very responsive with maintenance requests and were always quick to respond when we had questions or problems. We moved out less than a month ago and have already received our full security deposit back. We just bought a home but If we were to rent again, I wouldn’t hesitate to rent through Hoffman again.

I have been living at a wonderful property under Hoffman’s care for 3 years. Each time there is an issue they are very quick to respond and get our needs meet in every way they can. This past experience was fantastic. Doreen went over and above to make sure our daily schedule was not interrupted with having to take off work for a contractor. She reached out and found someone whom could work around our schedule and we are so grateful for her and her dedication to us . Thank you Doreen and the Hoffman crew for having to put up with us these last 3 years. I hope we arn’t too much of a hassle. Haha. Thanx again!

Although I didn’t end up renting a Hoffman home, I had a wonderful experience. I worked with Linda Ercia, she was extremely nice & always quick to respond. She answered all my questions & worked hard to get us arranged with a home we liked. She left the impression that Hoffman would be an attentive management company. When I am looking again in the future, I will definitely keep Hoffman Realty & Linda in mind !

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!!!

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.
