Real Estate Investing in Lakewood Ranch, Florida
Investing in Lakewood Ranch real estate is an excellent idea, whether you’re new to real estate investing or you have lots of experience and you’re looking for a new opportunity. Maybe you want to rent out the home you’ve been living in for the last 10 years because you’ve found something else. Or, perhaps you’re an investor looking to add a piece of Lakewood Ranch property to your portfolio. Whatever your reasons for investing here, you will find a community where rents are high, tenants are qualified, and the standard of living exceeds many other parts of Florida. It’s one of the best communities on the Gulf Coast, and we can help you meet your investment goals.
Beware of these Common Investor Pitfalls
While investing in Lakewood Ranch is an excellent idea for a number of reasons, it still comes with some risks. Most of those risks can be managed when you work with an experienced and talented property management team. At Gulf Coast Property Management, we have already made all the mistakes, and we’ve learned from them. We take that valuable experience and we bring it into our business, which is helping investors like you avoid some of the common pitfalls. Our management team can protect you from simple mistakes and complex problems. We’re here to help you manage your investment successfully and to increase your return on investment (ROI) dramatically.
Overpaying for a Property
It’s easy to get excited about a property that you plan to turn into a rental. However, you want to make sure you’re negotiating the best price and setting yourself up for some consistent cash flow and outstanding long-term gains. Don’t overpay for a property. Ask us about the market and its comparable prices.
Over-leveraging Your Purchase
Debt can be helpful in investing when it’s used properly. However, a lot of investors make the same mistake; they overleverage their purchase. Talk to us about financing options so we can help you protect your cash flow and increase your ROI. With prices where they are, we can find a better way.
Poor Property Management
Poor property management or no property management will lead to higher risk. You’ll run the risk of bad tenants, potential property damage, and a loss of rental income. You need a management team who can protect your property, choose the best tenants, and help you earn more on your investment.

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.
