What do you charge?

I get this question at least once per day on average if not twice. While I typically respond by letting customers know that it's not what they pay but rather what they need in service and what they get that's important, I'm not sure it always resonates.

To share the truth of the matter and answer the question directly let's compare the local low cost national franchise to our pricing. I won't even say anything about their lack of experience in the Austin market and the industry, the possibility they are backed by a hedge fund or their ability to tell owners they can lease a property for any price that will get them to sign an agreement. We'll simply stick to the facts.

Who doesn't want a low monthly fee, right? How about significantly higher leasing fees, 250% higher and a start up fee of $99 or $199 as your thank you for signing up. Once we work the pricing all into one monthly amount it comes out as follows for a $1250/month single family rental in Austin Texas.

Monthly averaged cost for a 12 Month Lease:
1836 – $162.50
Low cost provider – $211.37

Monthly averaged cost for a 18 Month Lease:
1836 – $141.67
Low cost provider – $219.96

Lease signings and renewals:
1836 – $199 only for renewals
Low cost provider – $350 for signing AND renewals

Don't be swayed by a low advertised monthly management fee only to get hit by higher fees elsewhere. Look a little deeper and select someone local, with integrity, who's #1 in google reviews in Austin, Texas and who has earned their stripes through industry experience, hard work and caring for their customers not someone who's bought their business from a box.
