Our Guarantees*

Leasing Guarantee

Leasing Guarantee

In the current market, owners need financial reassurances that the tenant that is placed will remain for the extent of the lease. With our Leasing Guarantee you do not have to worry about your tenant moving out in the middle of their lease. Our guarantee states that if a tenant we place vacates before the end of the initial term, you will not pay a Leasing Commission to find a new tenant (with the exclusion of tenants with military orders).

Property Condition Guarantee

Property Condition Guarantee

We regularly keep you updated on the condition of your home with our photographic property assessments. However, sometimes a little extra security brings peace of mind. With our Property Condition Guarantee, you will not have to worry about the condition of your home. We guarantee that if the tenant causes damage that exceeds their security deposit, we will pay the difference up to $1,000.

Eviction Protection Guarantee

Eviction Protection Guarantee

In the case of nonpayment of rent, we cover eviction costs up to $2,500 for a tenant we placed! Even the best tenants can have unforeseen financial problems. We have you covered with our Eviction Protection Guarantee.

You know what it’s like to find a plumber in the middle of the night who can respond to a major leak. One of the benefits to working with us is our own in-house maintenance team. House Calls Maintenance, Inc., offers cost-effective maintenance solutions with quick and effective repairs, which minimize expenses and keeps your property in good shape.

When more intensive repairs are needed, we work with a team of licensed, insured vendors who we have screened for workers comp and liability insurance. This is an important consideration in order to protect an owner from potential injury liability or accidental damage to the property.

During the tenancy, we conduct routine drive-by inspections as well as interior walk-throughs to look for any deferred or unreported maintenance. We also confirm that your tenants are following the requirements of the lease and keeping your property in good shape.

Prioritizing maintenance in Islandwalk at the West Villages, The Venetian, Sarasota National, Gran Paradiso, and other Venice areas.

Leasing and Tenant Placement

Strategic marketing is required to find and place the best Venice residents.

We start with a walk through the property to conduct a competitive market analysis that will result in just the right rental value. We take pictures and gather data from similar rental homes in the neighborhood. As soon as we’ve established a price that’s both competitive and profitable, we’ll start our marketing and advertising process, which is intense and targeted to well-qualified residents looking for Venice homes.

We will list your property on our own website and on the popular rental sites that tenants are using. Networking is part of our strategy, too. We’ll lease your property quickly because vacancies are expensive and undesirable.

Whether your Venice home is in Islandwalk at the West Villages, The Venetian, Sarasota National, Gran Paradiso, or one of the many other vibrant neighborhoods along the Gulf Coast, we’ll find you the best residents.

Next is showing your property. We’re responsive and thorough. We get your prospective tenants into the property to take a look around as soon as they’re ready. As applications are submitted, we’ll conduct a thorough tenant screening, which includes a credit check, running a full criminal background check, checking eviction records, verifying employment and income, interviewing previous landlords, and determining the overall risk level of the applicant.

Once an applicant has been properly screened, we will have the best landlord/tenant attorney in Florida create a lease agreement that is state-specific and protects your property and your rights. We’ll execute the lease and collect the move-in funds, providing a stress-free, successful leasing experience for you and your new resident.

Full-Service Property Management

Placing a great tenant only starts the process of exceptional Venice property management services.

After your new resident has moved in, we take care of every day-to-day detail, including rent collection, tenant communication, lease enforcement, inspections, legal compliance, property management accounting, and documentation. We’ll mediate disputes and avoid conflicts. Our management plan is focused on keeping your investment in great condition and retaining your good tenants for the long term.

Rents are paid by the tenant into our state-regulated trust account and disbursed to you on the 10th of each month.

All repairs are done very promptly. Is any time I have ever needed to ask for an upgrade of something it has always been done. The recently added lawn service is amazing for me as I am getting older and it was hard for me to do. I am very grateful to be a tenant and I have never had any complaints. Is everyone is very courteous and professional and attentive to the needs of the tenants. I have been renting from this company for more than 10 years and been in the same house.
