Summer Maintenance tips for Tampa Rental Owners

As the Tampa rental market gets hotter so does the temperature and with the increased heat there are a few preventative maintenance tips that we would recommend every owner look into.

Air Conditioner and Electrical Units

Replacing AC filters monthly is a good standard practice. However, if your tenants do not keep up on monthly replacements, Real Property Management Instant Equity can ensure that unit filters are replaced every 6 months during our semi-annual property evaluations. With the hot Florida weather we highly recommend replacing filters as well as having each unit annually serviced in order to avoid costly repairs down the road. In addition to your AC units, quickly checking other electrical features for damage will help you avoid fire hazards or potential problems.


Lets be honest; this is Florida and bugs are unavoidable. But we here at Real Property Management Instant Equity can help keep a watchful eye for these annoying pests. During our semi annual evaluations we check for entry points on the exterior of the home in addition to window seals and screens. Regular pest control can also help prevent any unwanted pest problems and can lead to longer residency of your tenants.

Preventative maintenance beats reactive maintenance any day of the week. Before you start your summer vacation remember these tips for preventative summer maintenance. Real Property Management Instant Equity knows that one of the best ways to avoid late night calls and tenant frustrations is to be proactive landlord. Schedule a quick review today by visiting us at
