Here is a great article by www.houselogic.com, The Cost of Renting Out Your House. It touches on the basics of what to consider when you’re thinking of renting out your home…for the first time. A heads up: they claim, “Expect to pay a management company 8% to 10% of the annual gross rent, on average, with a $50 to $85 monthly minimum.” The majority of property managers in Nevada & Placer counties do charge 8% of the gross rent. However, one of the unique features of Barrett Property Management is our simple fee schedule. We charge 7% of gross rent period. Never any mark-ups.
