Leasing Fee: Charged whenever we have to find a tenant, it is one month’s rent for a one-year lease; for leases in excess of one year add 25% of one month’s rent for each additional year or portion thereof.
NOTE: We must pay a sizable portion of this fee to the agent who shows your property and brings us a rental applicant that you accept. If you have the ability to show the home to prospective renters from within your circle of friends and colleagues, we encourage you to do so. Simply refer any interested parties to WJD and we will process them in the same manner as if a leasing agent brought them to us. Your account will only be charged a $500 administrative fee for this service.
Lease Extension Fee: Charged whenever a lease is extended beyond its initial term, it is 25% of one month’s rent prorated to the exact term of the extension. If a lease is extended on a month-to-month basis there is a one-time $400 administrative fee for this service.
Management Fee: Charged whenever a tenancy is in effect, it is 8% of the monthly rental amount for houses and townhomes and 9% for condominiums. There is a $150 minimum monthly fee for condominiums, and a $250 minimum monthly fee if there is a Home Warranty in effect regardless of the type of property. We do not have maintenance surcharges, account set-up costs or any other hidden fees and we do offer a discount for multiple properties. A management fee is not charged whenever a tenancy is no longer in effect, however, when no tenancy is in effect for longer than 60 days, a monthly vacancy fee of $50 shall be charged.
Advertising Costs: The costs of listing your property in the Multiple Listing Service, uploading the listing to the WJD website and to various social media platforms, uploading the listing to ListHub.net which exports listings to over 900 real estate search websites, the cost of real estate sign post installations (where permitted) and the cost of virtual tours when possible are all included in your leasing fee.
