  • Do I get to see the lease or sign it?

    Our standard lease can be made available for your review. As we approve tenants and execute leases, we will sign on your behalf as your agent.
  • Do you sell real estate too?

    Yes, we are able to help you with a traditional sale as well as creative exit options such as lease options and seller-assisted financing. These options are helpful for some landlords for tax reasons and they offer more flexible options to existing tenants who are interested in purchasing your home.
  • How and when do I get my checks?

    All net rental income is direct-deposited into your account and property ledgers that reflect your income/expenses are available anytime in your landlord portal.
  • How is rent collection handled?

    We strongly encourage tenants to set up auto-payments online, through their tenant portals. Rents are always due on the first of each month, with a three-business day grace period. Late fees apply thereafter.
  • How long of a lease do you sign?

    Typical leases are 12-months. Often, leases will vary in length so we don’t end a lease during slow months of the year. This allows us to put a vacant property on the market during the most competitive seasons of the year when rent rates are the highest.

    All security deposits and money held in trust are held in trust are secure in the brokerage escrow account. Per Florida real estate law, this account is reconciled monthly. When a tenant moves out, remaining security deposits on hand, after repair costs, are returned within 30 days of move-out.
