Tampa Property Management: Our Top 10 Picks

Finding a great property manager is the key to creating a truly passive income from rentals. This is not an easy task even with online reviews.
We tested the performance of 30 property management companies in Tampa. From that list we picked our top ten.

Here is how we evaluated and rated the management companies.

  1. Responsiveness to showings and answering questions – how fast they responded to our rental inquiries and how fast we can schedule a showing for an available and vacant property.
  2. Efforts to reduce vacancies – listing properties before they become vacant. Listing a property before it’s vacant is very inconvenient for the managers so if they do it, it shows that they make an effort to rent it as fast as possible.
  3. Length on market – how long listings stay on the market if they are vacant and available.
  4. Presentation of current listings – photos, videos, and condition of the property.
  5. Reputation reviews – heavily weighted landlord reviews.
  6. Experience – how long has the company been in the same business. The result is expressed in points not years.
  7. Industry participation and reputation – membership in the property management association and related designations.
  8. Cost – we consider the cost to lease, manage, and renew a lease on a $1500 rental. Some property managers charge a flat fee which makes it more cost-effective for higher-end rentals.
