We have a nationwide marketing strategy. When we enter your property into the Orlando Multiple Listing Service (MLS), over 10,000 Realtors can see your home. We also post your listing online with photos, maps and relevant property details. All of our listings are also available to Lease Locator companies in Florida. Referrals from current and past tenants and other agents we work with also provide us with a great pool of potential tenants.
Proper pricing of your rental home makes a big difference in marketing strategy. Even the best home will have a hard time renting if it’s overpriced. We do our research and price your home according to the current market. Finally, we make sure your house is ready to show. Our attention to details such as curb appeal and interior cleanliness ensures your home is rented quickly to a high quality tenant.

Thorough tenant screening is critical to a landlord’s success and we do a number of things to screen tenants. In our residential verification, we talk to past landlords and ask detailed, open-ended questions about the tenant. When a private individual instead of a management company is listed as a previous or current landlord, we do a property tax search to confirm we’re talking to the person who actually owns the property. This stops people from trying to commit fraud and our extra level of scrutiny has saved our owners from some potentially bad tenant situations.
We analyze credit reports to get an accurate financial picture and evaluate a tenant’s ability to meet their obligations. Applicants must meet our established credit standards. We pull driver’s license records to check previous addresses. If an applicant says they have been living at one address for three years, but we find they renewed their driver’s license at a different address a year ago, we wonder what they’re trying to hide. Employment and income verification is also an important part of our screening process. We contact employers to verify employment and income. It’s required that a tenant earns at least three times the monthly rent in order to qualify, and we ask for pay stubs to document the income. If someone is self-employed or retired, we can verify income other ways. A thorough background check is critical in the tenant selection process. We look for bankruptcy, foreclosures, evictions, repossessions, convictions.
Finally, we conduct additional searches that reveal any criminal background or other red flags (check writing ability and social security fraud alerts and so much more) . We don’t let tenants move in with pets unless our property owners allow it. Lots of potential tenants have pets, so if you decide to allow them, we protect your property by limiting the breeds we’ll accept as well as the quantity and size of the animals. Pet owners are subject to extra screening and lease addenda.
We handle all the necessary paperwork associated with the leasing of your property and ensure compliance with applicable local, state and federal laws. Our lease is attorney drawn and is updated and reviewed by an attorney regularly. We enforce all the terms of the lease including timely rent collection and the tenant's responsibilities to maintain the property.
Keeping your relationship strictly professional and allowing your property manager to enforce your lease will help you be a more successful landlord. If rent begins to come in late or not at all, you don’t want to let your tenant get away with it. Even if you are emotionally moved by the tenant’s situation, you need to think about your property as an income producing business.
We have skilled, licensed and insured tradesmen and suppliers available to service your property's needs. With our purchasing power we get high quality service at reasonable rates. Our Vendors are loyal, trustworthy, and quick to respond. All receipts for services are provided with the owner’s statements. Emailed Communication updates of repairs and maintenance.
When you put your property on the market in the best condition it can possibly be, you’re going to get a lot more interest from potential renters. You’re also setting a standard for how you expect the property to be maintained during the course of a lease. If you hand over a home that has scratched flooring, broken appliances and chipped paint, your tenants will get the idea that you don’t care very much about the home. They won’t care either.
Detailed accounting for all income and expenses for your property is provided on a monthly basis. The timely disbursement of funds to owners is a high priority. We utilize the industry's most advanced property management and accounting program to accomplish this. This program also allows owners to access the system online and obtain property information through the online Owner Portal. Copies of all lease documents, accounting statements, work orders, receipts, and vendor invoices are stored and available for viewing in the Owner Portal at any time. At the end of the year we supply owners with annual statements categorizing all income and expenses for the property and a 1099-MISC for tax purposes.
