I'm looking at purchasing an apartment or condo in the Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda area as an investment.

Asked by kylebiggs13, Port Charlotte, FL Sun Dec 8, 2013

I am curious about how many potential renters there are in the region that can afford a $1,000-1,500/mo payment. Is there a strong market for rental property?
This would be my first time buying and I would employ the help of a property manager. What is an average annual percentage that a local property manager would charge?

Sounds to me that you may be looking to invest for long term renters. The rental market is good, however, I would question your choice of property selection. Unless there is a particular reason you are looking for a condo, you might want to give some thought to a 3/2/2. Give our property manager, Brenda a call at 941-979-8165. She will be happy to answer your questions for you. John

Hi Kyle,

There are many variables that enter the equasion when considering the potential for a rental investment. Unit size, location, furnishings, condition, etc. are but a few.

For an annual rental your quoted rental range is likely to be on top of the average rental amount. However, for a seasonal rental targeting December-April you can often expect nearly double this amount. Thus, you can nearly doule your rental amount for 4-5 months and use the property for your personal needs during the balance of the time.

The fees for rental management services will vary to between 10 and 15 percent and should cover a wide range of services including identifying potential tenants.

Hope this information is helpful.
