For property management, we are currently servicing Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Lake Counties, Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Manatee Counties. For sales, we can list and sell anywhere in Florida.

- Toilets cannot be flushed (and yes, they may be used during showings, even if the water is turned off).
- The house starts to smell musty with no air flow. Remember, Florida is a very humid environment, mold can take hold very quickly.
- You do not want to limit yourself to only daytime showings. Most showings happen in the evening when prospective residents get off work work.
Owners are paid via Electronic Funds Transfer directly to your bank. If you prefer a different method, just let us know. Owner proceeds are processed generally 48 hours after the resident payment has cleared our operating account.
No, we only charge our management fee based on received rent.
Rent is due on the first day of the month, we do extend a 5 day grace period. While most of our residents pay their rent on time, there is occasionally a late paying resident. Late fees will be assessed on the sixth day of the month. If payment is still not received, we will serve a "3 Day Notice to Pay or Deliver Possession" to the resident. Once the notice expires and no payment is received, we can begin an eviction proceeding. Full evictions are very rare and can usually be avoided or eliminated through proper communication with the resident.
