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.
What our service INCLUDES - arranged by stages:
The beginning: Assessment: FREE initial assessment
- FREE Wide Angle Photography
- Optional: 3D scan of your home (free on homes over $3000 rent!)
- Optional: designated website for your home
Three: Applicant processing
- Employment checks
- Background checks
- *** this is the primary benefit to using a property manager. Our tenants are the least likely to cause issues.
Four: Lease negotiations. The first time we actively involve the owner to learn their preferences. Unless otherwise instructed we work to maximize annual revenue.
- Smoking is NEVER allowed in the property
- If pets are allowed we take extra precautions to see that the home is taken care of and specially cleaned upon their move-out
- We require most tenants to pay a full month's Security Deposit and their own utilities unless otherwise negotiated due to the market
- We do not give permission for subletting of rooms
- We take photos throughout our inspections to ensure that a little scratch doesn't suddenly become a big one or a good stove is swapped out for a cheap one, etc.
- The owner gets a copy of these inspections on request.
