When will I start to earn an income from my property?

Answer: The amount of work and marketing necessary to rent your property will determine how soon you start earning an income. With the help of Suncoast Property Management, a rent ready home just needs enough time for proper marketing to find a qualified tenant. The timeframe to earning an income will vary depending on the location, the condition, the price and the curb appeal of the home. It's not possible to provide an exact timeframe.

Will I be able to restrict my rental to not allow pets, large families and smokers?

Answer: Suncoast Property Management complies with the Fair Housing Act 100%. As a landlord, you will not be able to choose to deny someone that is a member of a protected class according to this act. However, you will be able to restrict your property to not allow pets and smokers, but you cannot deny someone due to a service animal. Suncoast Property Management strongly urges you to allow pest because most families have a pet. We charge a non-refundable pet deposit of $350 for each tenant with up to two pets.
