Marketing Makes the Difference
Rental property doesn't lease itself. Every day that your home sits vacant costs you money. It doesn't take but a month or two before you're in a cash-negative position.
Winter Park Realty & Property Management can find you renters. We will actively market your property. It's not enough to simply place a classified ad in the newspaper and wait for tenants to call. That's much too passive if you want to maximize occupancy.
Instead, we use traditional marketing tools like MLS and signs combined with aggressive e-marketing. We'll place detailed information about your property on more than 75 different websites. That's a massive amount of exposure guaranteed to generate a constant flow of potential renters.
And, unlike most Winter Park property management companies, we answer our phones and show properties seven days a week. That's what it takes to find tenants, so that's what we do. We WILL get your home rented.
Get the Highest Rent You Can
Setting the right price is key. We know the neighborhoods of Winter Park and what the market will bear. We are constantly monitoring rental data. Working with you, we'll develop a game plan to attain the highest possible rent for your home.
Our team members at Winter Park Realty & Property Management are skilled negotiators. We don't just show your property; we build its perceived value in our conversations with potential tenants. That's how we close deals and maximize your revenue.
You Want Good Tenants and So Do We
Every landlord has his share of horror stories about tenants who didn't pay up or didn't care for the property. At Winter Park Realty & Property Management, we believe that the best way to avoid problems down the road is to start with quality tenants.
We don't simply rent to the first people who call. Instead, we spend time with interested prospects, showing them the property, asking questions and getting to know them.
We then have a thorough application process. Our credit and background checks are more extensive than most other property management companies. It may sound tedious, but it works. In fact, in the past four years, we've only had to evict one tenant. That's an impressive track record for a company that manages hundreds of properties.
Protect the Value of Your Home
If a renter doesn't maintain your property, you could see its value plunge. That means costly repairs or a lower asking price when you eventually sell. Neither one is a great option.
Winter Park Realty & Property Management helps ensure that your home is properly cared for. We deliver the property clean. We let the tenants know that we are hands-on property managers. They can easily contact us if a maintenance situation arises. We are approachable and we take action. Little grievances don't have a chance to become big problems.
Within the first 90 days of a tenant moving into your home, we do an inside inspection. We also do routine drive bys, just to make sure all looks to be in order. If we show we care, then your tenant will care too.
We offer a price match guarantee! Call Us Now and Your Home Could Be Rented in Days.
Just imagine the peace of mind you'll have when the renting of your home is handled by professionals. It's an easy solution that works. Contact Winter Park Realty & Property Management today to discuss how we can help.
Frequently Asked Questions
A lot of owners ask us whether or not to allow pets. We would recommend that you allow pets in most properties. Think of it this way, more than 50% of people have a pet. You would effectively double the amount of time it will take to locate a tenant. If it took one additional month to locate a tenant, would that be more or less money that the damage a tenant would create, in most cases the vacancy loss would be higher than the pet damage.
What we collect is a refundable deposit in addition to the normal deposit. As far as we know, we are the only local company that offers the tenant an opportunity to get their money back. By offering a refundable deposit, this will encourage the tenants to take better care of your property as opposed to a non-refundable deposit which makes the property manager money, but gives the tenant no incentive to take care of your property.
Winter Park Area Information
The site was first inhabited by Europeans in 1858, when David Mizell Jr. bought an 8-acre homestead between Lakes Virginia, Mizell, and Berry. A settlement, called Lake View by the inhabitants, grew up around Mizell's plot. It got a post office and a new name—Osceola—in 1870.
The area did not develop rapidly until 1880, when a South Florida Railroad track connecting Orlando and Sanford was laid a few miles west of Osceola. Shortly afterwards, Loring Chase came to Orange County from Chicago to recuperate from a lung disease. In his travels, he discovered the pretty group of lakes just east of the railbed. He enlisted a wealthy New Englander, Oliver E. Chapman, and they assembled a very large tract of land, upon which they planned the town of Winter Park. Over the next four years they plotted the town, opened streets, built a town hall and a store, planted orange trees, and required all buildings to meet stylistic and architectural standards. They promoted it heavily. During this time, the railroad constructed a depot (1882), connected to Osceola by a dirt road.
