Common Fees Other Management Companies Charge

In this week's blog we are going to talk about common fees other Sarasota & Portland property management companies charge.

When you’re looking for a property management company to handle your rental property, you’ll want to talk about fees and take a look at the services you get in exchange for those fees. At PropM, we charge two fees: a leasing fee and a management fee.

You’ll find that other Sarasota & Portland property management companies charge additional fees. We have found that some companies charge up to 11 additional fees, and they start right away. You might find you’re expected to pay things like:

  • Trip charge just to visit you
  • Set up fee
  • Vacancy fee
  • Administrative fee
  • Monthly fee
  • Maintenance fee
  • Renewal fee
  • Inspection fee
  • Eviction fee
  • Advertising fee

We think these fees are ridiculous. The key to good property management is transparency, and you need to remember that when you’re searching for a property management company. We are the only property managers in Portland open seven days a week. Our bottom line is to provide outstanding customer service, and we invest in that goal by paying our staff to be here in the office, ready to serve you. We can handle all those problems you run into, no matter what day or time it happens to be.

Look for a property manager who keeps things simple. A leasing fee and a management fee is really what management should be. If you have any questions, please contact us at PropM, Inc., and we’d be happy to talk to you.
