Dynamic Marketing

Our properties shine brightly in a very competitive market. Your property will benefit from best in class advertising. It’s how we can achieve our ’19 days on market’ benchmark. 

Read More »

We utilize the standard channels such as Zillow, Trulia and the MLS but your property will also be listed on the most popular rental sites, where we have secured premium listing status. In total we will utilize over 70 different channels your property.

Of course, as the most recognized local rental company in the area we are always the first name on people’s lips and we generate a lot of our leads just from word of mouth.

Generating the leads is only the 1st step. At Gulf Coast we employee 3 full time leasing agents with the only responsibility of filling vacancies. Unburdened by the day to day duties of a property management, the leasing team are available to show properties from morning until the evening, 7 days a week. The leasing agents at Gulf Coast are available when prospects want to view properties, not just 9 to 5, Monday to Friday.

Careful Screening

Understanding that a rogue tenant is one of your biggest fears, we have created a thorough two – stage application process to ensure the prospects measure up to our strict criteria.

Read More »

Prospects submit an online application and if they meet our criteria they are conditionally approved. This application is evaluated by our internal admin team and we verify the information, requesting supporting documentation.

Our aim is to find a quality tenant as quickly as possible, but this does not mean we will cut corners in our background checks. Some prospects object to how thorough we are and consider our requests for an overreach. Our response is uncompromising, as it is our job to ensure that we find the right fit for your property.

Move-in Process

Once we have approved a prospect, we collect advance rent and a security deposit and move forward with the lease. Our leases are prepared by an attorney and protect the landlord to the fullest extent of Florida Law.

Read More »

The Florida Landlord Tenant Act is updated regularly, and we ensure the lease between you and the tenant recognizes the latest changes. Each lease is customized, taking into consideration your property, HOA or community specifics.

Capturing the condition of a property at move-in is a key responsibility of a management company. At Gulf Coast we utilize the latest 3D virtual tour technology to record every inch of your property. This attention to detail prevents messy security deposit disputes when the tenants come to the end of their lease.

Thorough Inspections

At Gulf Coast, we consider inspections to be the cornerstone of effective property management.

Read More »

In addition to the move-in inspection, we will also inspect your property 90 days after occupancy. We use this inspection to ensure the tenant is abiding by the terms of their lease and assess how the tenant is looking after your property. If necessary, we take this opportunity to reset expectations, reminding the tenant of their responsibilities.

If a lease renewal is agreed with your tenant, we will perform a renewal inspection prior to executing the new lease being signed. Using the original move-in inspection as the baseline condition we consider how the tenant is looking after your property and whether a new lease should be signed.

Understanding that the landlord has effective oversight in place will encourage the tenant to stick to the terms of their lease and look after your property

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.

Comprehensive Maintenance Options

Repairs and maintenance expenses are part and parcel of rental property ownership.

Read More »

How maintenance events are handled is critical to the success of rental property ownership. Poorly maintained properties is the #1 reason tenants do not renew. At Gulf Coast we have created oversight that addresses necessary repairs. Tenants can submit work orders online and/or call our 24/7 call center. Many of the repairs requests that we receive are either simple fixes or user errors that can be fixed remotely. Rather than dispatch immediately, our skilled maintenance staff attempt to troubleshoot the problem without expense being incurred. As a landlord within the Gulf Coast network, you will have exclusive access to our in-house maintenance services. In addition to extremely competitive rates, we demonstrate value in other ways too; Gulf Coast technicians assess repairs from an owner’s budgetary perspective. Considering all options before incurring unnecessary expenses. In addition, before applying the charge to your ledger, we consider if the repair was due to damage or neglect on the part of the tenant. Vendors are often reluctant to make this determination. By employing in-house maintenance, we can turn properties quickly and reduce expensive vacancies. In contrast, coordinating multiple vendors can be challenging, expensive and frustrating. Our maintenance team is insured, licensed and EPA certified. We also guarantee our work. We also understand you may have your own maintenance preferences, including warranties and we can certainly customize a maintenance solution that works for you.

Rent Collection & Accounting

Convenience is the key to effective rent collection and we will provide your tenant with a myriad of options when it comes to making payment.

Read More »

Most tenants opt to pay their rent online using their online Gulf Coast Tenant Portal.

Rent collection is likely the number one thought when people think of property management but there is so much more.

We utilize powerful accounting and reporting tools to provide you with the information you need in real time. You can check your balance, review maintenance expenses and check on rent payments at any time using your Owner Portal.

Leveraging our partnership with Experian and Rent Bureau, we report your tenant’s on-time rent payments to the credit bureau every month. We promote this initiative widely so that we attract great tenants and discourage prospects who would think twice about paying their rent on time.

Evictions and Legal Help

Our eviction rate is below .01%. We are very proud of this record and believe it can be attributed to our comprehensive management style.

Read More »

What is my balance?

You can check your balance through your secure, online tenant portal.


How can I pay rent?

The easiest method in which to pay your rent is online, using your tenant portal. You can also pay by person or drop box at our office or by mail. We offer the ability to pay by credit card, although you will pay a convenience fee for this method.


How can I get out of my lease?

We understand that circumstances change and, where possible, we will work with you to reach an agreeable solution.

We understand prompt attention to maintenance issues is one of the reasons you chose a professional management company over an owner-managed property. We will endeavor to address your urgent maintenance issues the same day, however, if the issue is non-emergency it may take a little longer. Your property manager will keep an open line of communication with you regarding the issue. If the problem seems to be taking a little longer than you would like, please bear with us as we often have to secure the owner’s permission before incurring substantial costs. Please remember this is an investment for the owner and we have an obligation to ensure their interests are also protected.

Urgent maintenance issues will be attended to immediately. More information is contained within the Tenant Handbook which you were provided at your move-in inspection

How do I get my deposit back?

Once you vacate the property, one of our property managers will perform a thorough inspection which will be directly compared to the move-in inspection that was performed when you took possession. In order to receive as much of your deposit as possible, you will need to address any items that are not considered normal wear and tear. The term “normal wear and tear” is subjective and we will always apply it fairly. Please refer to your Tenant Handbook for direction on how you can ensure your security deposit is returned with minimum deductions.

 

Moving is often a tedious job, but at Gulf Coast we strive to make the move in process as simple as possible.

Gulf Coast Property Management wants all of our tenants to enjoy a smooth move in experience when taking occupancy of their residential property. After your application has been fully approved, your property manager will contact you to begin the leasing process. There are several steps associated with the move in process and we will work closely with you to keep everything on track.
