Common questions other owners ask about our property management fees

What servces can I expect in your property management fees? 

Our full-service property management includes the day to day operations involved in managing your property, handling maintenance requests, routine inspections, finding you suitable tenants + plus more.

Hold on, $33 per week...what’s the catch? 

No catches. Ever! The management fee is $33/week ($30/week plus $3 GST).

What's the fee structure like? 

We charge a flat property management fee of $33/week ($30/week plus $3 GST).

The only other fees we will ever charge are:

  • If you need to go to Tribunal: $250 plus GST for prep and $250 plus GST for attendance
  • Mid-tenancy change: $250 plus GST (to be recovered by the tenant)

We don’t think it’s fair for owners to pay percentage fees. For property management, the work required to manage a property is the same regardless of the weekly rent. Some property managers will tell you otherwise. Ask yourself if that makes sense.

For finding new tenants, we charge one week's rent for leasing plus a $500 marketing fee (plus GST). The leasing and marketing fee is only ever payable if you need new tenants for your property.

For leasing, it’s the same amount of work to sign a six month lease or a twelve month lease. Unlike many agencies, our fee includes double-sized premium plus advertising (~$250) and measurements of key rooms.

Does $33/week mean you're a low cost / budget service?

Absolutely not! To get an indication the amazing service we deliver other owners like you, you can read our unfiltered reviews here.

How do you offer a great service at this price?

For traditional agencies, property management is a very profitable, recurring revenue stream.

  • Property management fees make up ~50% of revenues for most agencies.
  • Typical property managers earn around $60K and manage ~150 properties.
  • When real estate agents sell their companies, they are valued on the basis of their rent rolls.

Because they charge such high percentage-based property management fees, they can afford to be inefficient and hire property managers cheaply.

Our goal is to provide unparalleled service, at a much lower fee. To do this, we started with a clean sheet of paper, and built a proprietary property management platform that automates a lot of the work that traditional agents need to do manually today.

Our technology works 24x7, doesn’t need to take a vacation and doesn’t demand a paycheque. It also doesn’t forget to follow up on what needs to be done.

We know that good property management is about more than technology. It needs people to make the right decisions. That’s why we hire smart people with common sense who focus their time on the problems that only people can solve. And those people own part of the company so they’re motivated to grow the business sustainably.

We are more efficient in everything we do and we pass those savings back to you.
