Our Basic Fee is the greater of 10% of the gross rent received or $200.00, whichever is greater.
Pro-rated rents will always be pro-rated fees.
- NO Rent = NO Fee: We don't get paid until we get a tenant and we have every incentive to pursue rents
- NO Leasing Fee: We want more reliable tenants just like you. High turnover is bad for us too.
- NO charges for Move-Ins/New Tenants: Again, we want to reduce turnover
- NO charges for Move-Outs
- NO charges for Inspections (up to 3 free/year): This is just fair.
