Testimonials

I was an out-of-town property owner and RPM did an excellent job managing my property from start to finish. They even helped me get the property repaired and ready to rent. They were always responsive to my requests, statements and disbursements were issued monthly like clockwork, and repairs were handled expeditiously. If I ever have the need to have a property managed again I will definitely use RPM and I highly recommend them for your property management needs.

- George Niven

I work with them on a property I own near USF in the Thonotosassa area. I’d rate my experience with them as exceptional. I realize that I am not the only property they manage, yet they are still able to get back to me within minutes or less than an hour when I give a text or phone call. If I have a question or need something done, it gets done THAT DAY. I don’t believe I could ask for anything more than I’m receiving from this business relationship. I am so happy I do not have to worry about my properties care by myself.

- Glen Burchfield

Highly recommend it! Putting a home on the market for rental is huge and can be stressful. RPM made it all so easy and pain-free. They explained everything and were very thorough, always showing care in their recommendations, easy to speak to, very responsive, and accessible. I left Tampa without a doubt that our home is well taken care of! Thanks, RPM!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do rent payments work and how do I get paid?

Most tenants pay their rent online through the tenant portal.  We then transfer the rent to you through a direct deposit into your bank account.  We also accept checks and money orders from tenants.

How do you advertise your properties?

Getting properties rented efficiently is pivotal to our success and happy clients, we market property vacancies across approximately 30 well-known online platforms to find quality tenants quickly.

How do you handle repairs and maintenance

Tenants or owners can submit a maintenance request via their online portal or via email, phone or text. As part of a national franchise system, we have maintenance staff who answers maintenance calls 24/7.  Also, the portal allows tenants and owners to submit a request by providing a description of the issue as well as upload photos. Our goal is full transparency of the maintenance process.

Can I do repairs myself?

We highly recommend that you use professional vendors that have been vetted for professionalism, timeliness, and have the proper licensing to mitigate your risk.  But if you like to do your own repairs, we will discuss the best process to use with you.

Should I accept pets?

Over half of all renters have pets. Being open to pets will increase demand through the entire prospective rental pool and increase the rental price per month. If you would rather not, it is OK to prohibit pets.  Most of our owners consider pets on a case-by-case basis.

How long does it take to rent a property?

The leasing process has many variables including time of year, local inventory, condition, and price. In most cases, we can find a qualified applicant to fill vacancies quickly and offer a 30 guarantee.

How much will my property rent for each month?

Much like the real estate market determines sales prices, the local rental market determines rental rates.  Generally one of the first parts of the process is to provide you with an estimate of the likely rental rate for your property.

What is the tenant screening process?

Tenant screening is very thorough includes criminal background, credit, employment, and rental history checks.

What happens if my tenant stops paying rent or causes trouble?

Our tenant screening process usually prevents these types of issues; however, if a problem should arise, we always respond promptly and firmly. If a tenant were to need to be evicted, we handle that process for you.

What services does Real Property Management Instant Equity provide?

Real Property Management Instant Equity provides comprehensive full-service property management. Our services include rent and fee collection, screening, leasing, maintenance, professional market analysis, evictions, financial statements, and much more.  We also do full-service association management and vacation property management.

What shouldn't I manage my property by myself?

Utilizing the right property management company can make you more money, not less. Our experience will ensure that you enjoy an optimal return on investment for your rental property and peace of mind.

Can I rent my property furnished?

The market for furnished rental properties is smaller, most renters prefer an unfurnished property but that does not preclude you from doing so. We can provide more information.

How do I know what's going on with my investment?

Our online portal makes it quick and easy to access any information for your rental property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  And certainly, we are available via phone, email or text also.

Who pays for rental property maintenance cost?

The owner bears the financial responsibility of paying for repairs to the investment property which includes repairs falling under normal “wear and tear.”If the tenant is found responsible for damage or is negligent about property maintenance our offices will bill and reimburse accordingly.

Do you handle evictions?

We do handle evictions. While evictions are not wanted by anybody, they do sometimes happen.  We ensure all evictions are in compliance legally.
