It’s easy to jump into a rental market that you don’t quite understand. Whether you’re new to real estate investing or you’re an experienced investor who is new to the Bradenton real estate market, you’ll find it’s easier to maximize your ROI when you work with professional Bradenton property managers. We can help you avoid some of the common mistakes we see investors make.
Contact us if you’ve purchased a rental property in Downtown Bradenton, Cortez, or Oneco, or you’re thinking about buying an investment property in Bradenton Beach or Whitfield.
Overpaying for a Property
Plenty of great deals can be found in Bradenton, and we hate to see investors pay too much. When you overpay, you lose money on the sale and you hurt your long-term ROI. We know the market and we know what properties are worth. Let us take a look at your potential purchase and tell you what we think.
Over-leveraging Your Purchase
Leverage is great when you can use it to increase the potential return on your investment. It’s a mistake to over-leverage your purchase, however. We see investors too desperate to close on a deal they want, and they take mortgages that are too big or carry too much debt to earn any kind of cash flow.
Poor Property Management
Property management can increase your rental home’s performance, but only if it’s done right. Working with an inexperienced manager or someone who doesn’t know the market will cost you money and result in poor tenant placement, legal risks, and even property damage. Work with professionals.

Our Real Estate Partners
In Florida, an applicant only has to study for 60 hours and pass a 100 question exam to qualify as a real estate agent. Literally one day after passing the Florida Real Estate exam, an agent is licensed to sell a 1-bedroom condo, a million-dollar mansion or even a retail shopping center. A real estate license is no indicator of an agent’s skill or expertise.
Who do you want to trust your investment strategy with? We maintain relationships with exceptional local agents, all equipped with the knowledge, experience and skill set required to perform in the real estate investment market.
Our partnering agents offer value to buyers and sellers above that of a realtor involved in the general sales market. To attain ‘Preferred Real Estate Agent’ status at Gulf Coast Property Management, agents need to demonstrate through knowledge, qualifications and real-life experiences, that they understand the long goals of the real estate investor. The agents are also active in the real estate investment community and members of professional organizations such as NARPM and IREM.

What People Are Saying About Us
This experience has been a pleasure from day 1. All of our concerns have always been dealt with in a very timely and efficient manner. We are being kept updated on everything happening at our property without feeling like we're being spammed.
Chelsea is amazing to deal with, she replies to and acts on emails faster than I've ever experienced with anyone else on the property market. Even a Friday evening 6pm has not held her back from communicating information between our tenants and us.
I had the pleasure of working with Laurie to find our new home and have Kelly as my property manager. Everything has gone better than I could have hoped or imagined. We began very stressed trying to find a home and when we came across the house we chose, Laurie was so kind during the showing and made everything so easy after that point. Kelly has been wonderful since we started living here and been super helpful with any questions we have. We are so happy this was our first experience moving into a home!
Scott has proved to be a personal, professional and people oriented person to work with. He spent time to look over things preparing for rental and I felt included through his listening and feedback. He responds promptly and courteously to handle questions in email. In fact I feel like he takes care of everything that I would do and more. I am in process of moving and he reduced my stress level by clarifying tasks that Gulf Coast could complete. He also thinks of things to do I didn't think of and seeks my approval before acting on tasks. He is a class act. My only complaint is that he showed up extra early for initial appt. but that is better than not at all or late! Overall I highly rate him as a welcome presence on Gulf Coast staff. I already feel part of their team with dignity and respect.
I've been very happy with the service from Gulf Coast Management! Very prompt if I need something fixed in my unit. Kelly Crawford always answers my emails and has been easy to work with! Excellent service!
As a long-term Plantation rental guests, my husband and I want to thank Elaine Dexter at making our visits a fantastic experience. Everything runs smoothly when she is in charge. She goes out of her way to handle any problem or concern (be it large or small) with a sense of urgency & commitment. You can tell that she truly cares! Looking forward to seeing Elaine in November, because I know that our visit will be a memorable one. We know we will be in good hands with no worries at all.
