Owner Frequently Asked Questions
Why are your fees so low?
Our streamlined process allows us to not have to charge fees for things other companies do, we believe that if it’s our job why should we charge extra. We don’t feel property owners seeking management for their properties should be gouged every time something comes up.
Does the monthly fee go up?
We strive to keep our prices low, so each agreement is locked at a low fixed price.
If I have you find me a tenant for my property can I manage it myself or have someone else manage it?
Absolutely, we offer our Rental Locator Service just for that purpose. We can work with anyone, self managed properties, management companies, even apartment communities. You just pay a small one time fee. If your property sits vacant for two more weeks you would have already covered that fee.

Yes, we offer a 15% discount for owners who have 20 or more properties managed by us or placed by locator our service.
I already have a tenant in my property, what now?
We would then only take over the complete management of the property for the low monthly service fee.
