Tenant Placement or Leasing Fee

This is the fee typically charged for advertising and showing your property, screen applicants, and creating the lease. The standard fee for this service in the local market (collected by property management companies, full-service real estate companies, and independent real estate agents or realtors) is equal to one full month’s rent.

The tenant placement process begins with a detailed property analysis, 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, 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 Optimum tenant placement fee is one full month’s rent ($750 minimum), charged one time immediately after a tenant moves in.

If your home is already occupied by tenants not placed through Real Property Management Optimum, 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.
