It starts with a thorough move-in inspection so we can document the condition of your property before the tenant moves in. Then, we inspect 90 days after the move-in date. This lets us know your tenant is following the terms of the lease and taking good care of your home. If we need to revisit some expectations and reinforce some responsibilities, we do it. .
We also conduct a renewal inspection when your tenants decide to stay another year. We’ll inspect the property, check-in with the tenant, and get the new lease signed. If our inspection reveals any reason that the tenancy should not be extended, we’ll hold off on signing the new lease until we can determine whether we want to keep the tenant in place.
When tenants know that we can about the condition of the home and invest in its upkeep, they’ll be sure to maintain it to our high standards.
For your convenience, all inspection reports, including photos and comments are stored in your Owner Portal. You have access to this information 24/7. 365 days a year.

Area Information for Venice, FL
Located in southwest Florida, on the sunny Gulf of Mexico coast, Venice is a city known for its sunsets and shark teeth. It has been ranked by Coastal Living as one of the happiest seaside towns in the country, and for good reason. Who wouldn’t be happy living in a place that has abundant sunshine, gorgeous beaches, and enough recreation to appease even the greatest of adrenaline seekers? Like its namesake in Italy, Venice is surrounded by water. The Intracoastal Waterway separates it from Florida’s mainland.
The Venice Pier is a popular place for fishing, enjoying a drink or a meal, and listening to live music. It also features breathtaking sunsets nearly every night. The Pier in its current form was built in 2004. In 1981, the original pier was swept to sea during a storm. In 1984, the city rebuilt it using swamp timber, but the modern pier is made from sturdy wood composite. It’s the perfect place to fish for dinner or enjoy a romantic stroll.
The beaches are covered with fine white sand, and both visitors and residents can often be found digging shells and shark teeth out of the surf. The city is about more than just beach fun. The Venice Museum and Archives (known locally as VMA) hosts exhibits and permanent collections that may rival larger and more cosmopolitan cities. If you visit the Venice Centre Mall, pay attention to the tributes to its history. It was once a school for the Kentucky military, and then the building was used as a hotel. The area is close to a lot of nature and hiking opportunities, with Myakka River State Park and its plethora of wildlife less than half an hour away.
The Venice economy is strong and growing, making it an ideal market for investors who want to rely on a steady tenant pool. The median household income is higher than the national average, and rental prices have risen steadily over the last five years. Whether you’re looking to purchase your first investment home or you’re hoping to add another home to your growing portfolio, you can count on a number of excellent opportunities in the Venice housing market.
It’s also a great place to pick out a retirement home. You can buy something that you may live in at some point in the future, and rent it out until then. If you decide to do this, count on your team at Gulf Coast Property Management to take care of the property until you’re ready to take possession.
We work with owners all over Venice, including Englewood, Placida, and West Villages.
