Property Management in St. Johns County Florida
My name is Andrew Michael and I’m a full time Realtor and Property Manager. For Property Management I work in St. Augustine, St. Johns, Ponte Vedra, Ponte Vedra Beach, Nocatee and the metro Jacksonville area.
Many people start by asking me what a property manager does. The first thing I do is help you to find a quality tenant. I do that by having a professional photographer take pictures of you home to ensure it is shown in it’s best light. I then use the photos when I advertise on my website, Zillow, Trulia, and Military FSBO. Once I find a tenant I have them complete an application that includes a credit, criminal background, and eviction search. Once I have a completed application I sit down with the owner and help them to decide if the tenant will make a responsible resident or not. Once the property owner/investor agrees on the tenant I draw up the lease, collect the deposit, and facilitate the tenant moving into the home. Once they are moved in my office collects their rent checks and pays the property owner.
Your next question is probably how much do I charge for my services. In the North Florida area most property managers charge one month’s rent for tenant placement and 12% to 15% of the month’s rent for management. If a client purchases the home with me I don’t charge them to place a tenant. If they already own the home then I charge 50% of one month’s rent to place the tenant. I only charge 10% of the monthly rent for management.
If you are interested in purchasing an investment home or having a tenant placed in your current home please give me a call. My cell is (904) 460-8501 and my office number is (904) 562-1371.
