Tenant Placement Fee
This is the fee charged for finding, screening, and creating the lease for a tenant.
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 DC Metro tenant placement fee is 6.9%, charged one time immediately after a tenant moves in.
If your home is already occupied by tenants not placed through Real Property Management DC Metro, 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 a flat $495 tenant setup fee.
