Why do you need us?

We do all of the work! We will also preview properties and review leases for you, if desired.

What do I need to know?

Tampa Bay's economy ranks among the top 20 largest metro areas in the country and growing by 50,000 people per year. Our rental market moves fast! Most rental properties are on and off market within 3-5 days. As a general rule of thumb, rental rates in and around Tampa are $1 per sqft ($1/sqft).

For example a typical 3 bedroom 2 bath 1500 sqft single family home will rent from $1300 to $1700 per month. When submitting applications, each application will be specific to each individual property and criteria for approval. The approval process can vary from 24 hours to two weeks. If you have limited time to secure a rental, it may be necessary to apply to more than one property at once.

What is Rental Housing Like in the Tampa Area?

If you were looking for a One bedroom property, it will most likely be a condo for $800 to $1400 per month.

If you were looking for a Two bedroom property, it will most likely be a condo, townhome or older single family home built in the 50's for $1000 to $1800 per month.

If you were looking for a Three bedroom property, it will most likely be a Townhome or a Single Family Home for $1200-$3000 per month.

Utilities are typically NOT included in rent. More desirable areas will command a premium rental price than the average.
