Looking to rent out your home? Davidson Property Management offers options

August 15, 2018

 | 

At Davidson Property Management, we are passionate about helping homeowners by offering fully managed property services. But did you know we offer tenant placement as another option?

 

Tenant Placement

Finding quality tenants is one of the most challenging parts of managing a property, so DPM can take care of this big step and let you manage the property after your tenant moves in.

 

Tenant placement is the process in which we pull comparable properties for pricing, list the property on multiple websites, locate a qualified applicant, run background checks (credit, criminal, evictions), have a lease created and get your tenant moved in. The fee for this service is the first full month’s rent.

 

Full Service Property Management

If you don’t have the time or live too far to manage your own property, we will take care of that, too!

 

Our full property management service includes tenant placement, plus we…

  • Handle any repairs day or night using licensed and insured vendors
  • Take numerous pictures of the home inside and out prior to the tenant moving in
  • Go into the home at the 6-month mark to ensure the tenant is maintaining the home
  • Ensure a property manager is available anytime your tenant needs help
  • Allow tenants to pay rent via our online portal, ensuring a smooth payment process
  • Complete a move-out review with numerous pictures
  • Handle the security deposit claim when the tenant moves out

 

You as an owner have access to a portal in which you can view your monthly statements, home reviews, invoices and any documents pertaining to your property. You will also receive a 1099 each year for tax purposes.

 

The fee for the full service is 75% of the first full month’s rent, and then just 10% of rent each month to manage.

 

To learn more, visit DavidsonRealtyInc.com/Property-Management or call us anytime at (904) 484-2170. One of our fantastic property managers will be happy to help you!

We recently welcomed long-time St. Augustinian Neely Benson to our team of real estate agents! Neely is known throughout the First Coast for her photography.

 

“Neely is the consummate professional and people person—both important qualities in a Realtor. She knows Northeast Florida very well, which is really helpful to her customers,” said Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Realty.

 

A Florida native, Neely has lived in St. Augustine for 26 years where she has worked as a professional photographer and bartender. Neely developed a passion for real estate after buying her home in 2013. She now looks forward to using her local knowledge to help her customers through the real estate process.

 

Neely works out of our headquarters in World Golf Village.

 

Welcome to the team, Neely!

 

 

Amendment 2 keeps important limit on certain property taxes

August 7, 2018

 | 

This November’s ballot will include a crucial amendment that affects every Floridian. Amendment 2 will make permanent a 10% cap on annual tax increases for properties that don’t fall under the homestead exemption, which includes businesses, rentals, non-primary homes and vacant land.

 

The amendment has strong bipartisan support from the Florida Senate and House of Representatives.

 

If it fails, however, millions of Floridians will experience skyrocketing property taxes. So, who exactly is affected?

 

Owners of non-homestead properties –The amendment protects these residents from higher property taxes on non-homestead properties like rental homes and small businesses.

 

Renters – It protects renters from rent increases that result from higher taxes being passed on to them by landlords.

 

Everyone –It ensures our state stays an affordable place to live by preventing excessive property tax increases that can push residents away.

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in June – Have you ever wondered if you can use funds in your IRA to buy a home?

July 27, 2018

 | 

An article in USA TODAY by Matthew Frankel gives a good and simple answer. “First-time homebuyers can take out as much as $10,000 from their traditional IRA penalty-free, although it will still count as taxable income. And if your spouse also has a traditional IRA, they can take out $10,000 as well.

 

Furthermore, the homebuyer doesn’t necessarily have to be you. You can use the money to help your child, grandchild or parent buy a home as well. The IRS has a liberal definition of what a “first-time” homebuyer is. Basically, you must not have owned a principal residence within the last two years.” A Roth IRA can be used also, but the rules are slightly different.

 

Our local real estate market is still looking strong in the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for June. There were 3,868 new listings in June, an increase of 13.4% from last June and 8.1% year to date, which is very positive since the homes available for sale have been very low.
