Tenant Placement or Leasing Fee
This is the fee typically charged for finding tenants, screening potential tenants, and creating the lease. The standard fee for this service in the Columbia market (collected by property management companies, full-service real estate companies, and independent real estate agents or realtors) is equal to the amount of 3/4 month’s rent.
The tenant placement process begins by completing a detailed analysis of your property which we use to determine the maximum market rental rate for your home. We will then assist with any make-ready maintenance work (if necessary), take professional photographs, advertise your property, take calls and answer tenant inquiries, show your property to interested prospects, qualify applicants, draft the lease, set tenant expectations, and complete move-in documentation.
The Real Property Management Midlands tenant placement fee is 75% of the first month’s rent amount, charged one time immediately after a tenant moves in.
If your home is already occupied by tenants not placed through Real Property Management Midlands, you find your own tenant, or you hire your own outside agent to place a tenant and you want us to take over with a lease already in place, there is no tenant placement fee charged.
