When considering turning a home into a rental property in Newcastle, one of the first questions asked by a new landlord will be "How much will the rental property management fees be?".
As we advise each investor we meet, property management fees should be considered alongside a mix of many other aspects. The old saying "cheapest is not always best" certainly applies to rental property management fees.
Why? Here a just a few reasons (but don't worry, we also answer the question...!).
Rental property management fees - why cheapest isn't best
What are rental property management fees in Newcastle?
We have created an article to help answer this question here: "Newcastle Property Management Fees and Charges - A Comparison".
In this article we compare the differences between our own rental management fee structure and that of a typical alternative property management company in Newcastle. We transparently outline our own fee structure and provide a typical alternative cost structure for comparison.
Note that we are one of very few property management companies in Newcastle to publicly list our fee structure online. Most companies will shelter this from you until you are further along in making an enquiry.
The difference between management fee structures may seem quite minor, but as we show, our own property management fee structure can result in an annual cost of less than $2,000, including renewing a tenant for an additional lease term. This same service may cost in excess of $3,000 from another property management company.
Importantly, as mentioned at the start of this article, fees should be taken into account alongside a mix of many other factors when considering the right property management company in Newcastle for you.
