What does Professional Property Management Cost?
Recurring Management Fees
To cover the cost of property management services, the Claus Team collects a percentage of the monthly rent, usually 8% to 10% of the monthly rental amount. So if your home is renting for $1,000 per month, the Claus Team would charge $80 – $100 per month to manage that property.
Lease Signing Fees
When a tenant is placed in the property, we charge an initial leasing fee of 1/2 of one month’s rent. This is used for things like advertising your home and paying agent commission once your home is leased.
Maintenance & Repair Expenses
As the property owner, you will still be responsible for any expenses related to maintaining or repairing the property. The Claus Team will coordinate this and provide cost estimates based on the type of work needed. The property management contract authorizes us to spend a specified amount per item before pre-authorization to owner of expense, except for emergencies.
