Property Management Fees
The typical cost of property management for apartments, single family homes and condominium rentals is 10 percent of the gross monthly rents.
OPTIONS FOR RECEIVING RENT
- The tenant can direct deposit the rent into your account. This is the easiest and fastest. It would be set up so the deposit will happen automatically the 1st of the month. You would set up a reoccurring transaction in bill pay to pay the management fee. Any other invoices that come in, I will scan to you and you would pay.
- The tenant can mail the rent to me. I will deposit the check into my account, pay any bills and send the remainder to you. Typically you would receive the check around the 5th of the month, that is if the rent check clears.
- I can open an account with both our names on it at Rockland Trust. I will deposit the rent, pay the bills and send a check to you from the bank account. This tends to be for larger units with several bills.
With single family homes not having many bills, landlords tend to choose option 1.
The typical cost for condominium association’s management services ranges from $50 to $70 per unit per month. Some factors that can affect this price are location, the size and age of the building and renters vs. owner-occupied units within the building.
Often there is a one time start- up fee of $150 with condominiums.
No other administrative fees will be charged and no extra fees will be added to our subcontractor’s bills.
We charge 10 percent for capital improvements such as a new roof or new heating system due to the extra coordination and supervision. Nothing will be added to the repairs and maintenance bills.
