Renewal Inspection Report

Before the renewal month of the tenants’ lease, we contact you as the landlord, to discuss the tenants’ payment record and other important issues. We discuss the possible lease renewal and the possible rent increase.

We then make the written offer to the tenant, and if the tenant wants to stay and renew, we set up an appointment to inspect the property. An on-site inspection of the interior and exterior with photographs is done by our property manager. This is not a check off the item in a box report - this is a typed Narrative Inspection Report with descriptions and the photos.

Financial Reporting Icon

Accounting

We provide a Cash Flow Statement of income and expense, each month for our Landlords. The statements and owners’ distributions are processed TIMELY on two cycles per month - the second full week of the month, and the third full week of the month.

This will depend on the tenants’ timely payment of the rent. Your statement can be sent either to online web site portal, emailed, or US postal mailed. We offer DIRECT DEPOSIT if you want the distribution funds to be sent via ACH to your bank checking account. We also provide a year-end summary statement of income and expenses for your taxes.

Eviction Protection Icon

Lease Preparation

We use a Legal Lease Agreement, and important Addendums, prepared through a leading attorney specializing in Florida Landlord-Tenant Law. This is a “fully completed Lease” – not a fill in the blank form.

This Legal Lease Agreement can help reduce your risk and increase your success by having many Tenant and Landlord issues spelled out or addressed in the paragraphs of the Lease.

St Petersburg Area Info

Discover St Petersburg

St. Petersburg is a city in Pinellas County, Florida, United States. As of the 2015 census estimate, the population was 257,083, making it the fifth-most populous city in Florida and the largest in the state that is not a county seat (the city of Clearwater is the seat of Pinellas County).

St. Petersburg is the second-largest city in the Tampa Bay Area, after Tampa. Together with Clearwater, these cities comprise the Tampa–St. Petersburg–Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area, the second-largest in Florida with a population of around 2.8 million. St. Petersburg is located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, and is connected to mainland Florida to the north.

For over 100 years, on Florida’s West Coast in the Tampa Bay Area, St. Petersburg has long been known as the “Sunshine City” and is world famous for our beautiful beaches and warm tropical climate – a perfect vacation destination. It has more recently been called “The Gulf Front Jewel on Tampa Bay.” Although it has long been and remains a favorite place to visit and to retire, the St. Petersburg Area with its’ adjacent Gulf Beach communities is now younger with an average age of just 41 and more vibrant than most Florida cities. It has dynamically evolved into a diverse community that welcomes everyone to “the ‘Burg Life.”

The St. Petersburg Area and it’s Neighborhoods are best described in the current Relocation Guide by the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce as follows:

“Creative, hip and cool. In addition to its international reputation for year-round sunshine, a beautiful waterfront and an abundance of outdoor recreation, St. Petersburg is experiencing tremendous growth and energy in nearly every sector of the city. This is definitely not your grandfather’s laid-back St. Petersburg from the last century. St. Petersburg is on the move. An unstoppable buzz has been spreading and for good reason. A forward thinking metropolitan area, St. Petersburg is home to a flourishing arts culture, and food, craft beer and technology are blowing up here. This is a city that welcomes diversity, embraces entrepreneurial spirit and nurtures the interests of citizens and visitors alike. All of this adds up to a very desirable quality of life.”

“St. Petersburg has all the right ingredients for a great quality of life: arts, entertainment, dining, recreation, diverse neighborhoods, good schools and a thriving business culture. Living in the ‘Burg can rival the best cities in the country but there’s a friendly hometown vibe that makes it easy to feel comfortable and connected.”

“St. Petersburg is a city of distinct neighborhoods with strong civic associations and community pride – not the stereotype of anonymous Florida subdivisions. There is also a surprising amount of diversity, from the unique architectural style homes, to price points and neighborhood feel.”

Chris Steinocher, President & CEO of the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce noted, “Most conversations about St. Petersburg usually start or end with ‘I love this city.’ It’s that kind of love affair we’re hoping you want to have with your next home town.” For further details about living, working and playing in the St. Petersburg Area, it’s Gulf Beaches and Neighborhoods, click here to see the complete relocation guide, ‘Burg Life.
