Commission is negotiable and can be discussed when you hire a Realtor to assist you. Typically on a rental it is equal to one months rent. If you have further questions, I would be happy to assist you.

You will usually pay whatever the rent payment will be. Example your house rents for $1500. You will collect $1500 for the first month +$1500 deposit. You will pay the listing agent $1500 and you will get $1500.

Hello Borislav & Mile, usually the first month rent you collect from the tenant goes to your agent's brokerage which is then split accordingly (buyer's agent gets 50% of that). I work the Spring area, let me know if you need assistance listing and I can explain the process a bit more clearly. Good luck!

The standard Broker commission is the equivalent of one month rent wich will be splitted 50/50 between listing agent (representing landlord) and buyer’s agent (representing tenant). You, as landlord, will collect at commencement of the lease a security deposit (typically one month rent) and pet deposit if applicable. This deposits are refundable at the end of the lease based on condition and terms of the contract.

As you can see it is very typical for you to pay a full months rent towards both Realtors commission. We help you collect the First Months Rent and the Deposit before a tenant moves into your home. The Deposit is normally equal to the monthly rate amount. (832)465-1692 Chadc.realtor@gmail.com

Mile,
It sounds like you’ve decided you don’t want to deal with putting a sign in the front yard or handle all of the phone call traffic, and answering the same questions again and again or showing the house, etc.
Finding.a tenant can be time consuming and mentally draining. You made a good choice in seeking out the help of a Realtor.

You’re getting all kinds of responses, though. You really should reach out to your Realtor of choice. If you don’t really know of any, you should ask a friend or loved one if they can recommend one for you. You can share with that Realtor a description of your property and exactly what your goals are. She can answer all of your questions in a more exact and personalized way. Good luck!

Commissions can be negotiated depending on the level of service your wanted, typically the owners would pay the brokers involved the 1st months rent and retain the security deposit until the tenants lease comes to term. There after the landlord maintains the home of any repairs needed before, during and after the home is rented. Please contact me with further questions. I also offer property management with a services more extensive then that of the average property management for less.

Best Regards,

Typical fees are paid when your home is leased. You don't pay anything out of pocket up front. The tenant writes two checks (recommend certified funds); one is a security deposit check in your name, the other is the first month's rent made out to the listing broker. Good luck with your rental.

Hello!

As my colleagues have indicated, the going rate is 1 month's rent. As the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for". Thus, my recommendation is to vet the realtor you hire in order to understand exactly what services you are getting for that month's rent.

I provide the same full array of benefits as I do for my listings. Those services include professional pictures, a comprehensive discussion of the property both in the General Description section as well as below each picture, staging services, social media promotion, the listing of your home on HAR and 100s of other websites, correspondence promoting your home to agents who have leased homes in the area recently, an upgraded colonial sign post in the yard with my contact information, access to me 24/7 for your questions, advice, etc.

I also see that you do not live in the Houston area. I am well versed in working with out of town clients. I also have a reputable property management company to which I will recommend once your home is leased.

Please see the example below is a current lease property I am promoting for an out of town client.

I would be honored to assist you with securing a qualified, good quality tenant for either of your Houston area rental homes. Feel free to reach out to me at your convenience. If we don't speak before then, Tu B'Shevat!

At Your Service!

Hi Borislav and Mile,
Commissions and most fees are negotiable and can be contingent on what services you desire from your Realtor. Let's say, you just want a professional sign in the yard, help with market information, and contract assistance, this service could cost less than a contract that includes a listing in MLS and showing services. It is unlikely that no matter what the fees are, your Realtor will add value, professional guidance, and convenience to the transaction.

Generally the rate is one months rent to be paid to the agents. You’ll collect first months rent and a security deposit, and that first months rent will cover the agents fees.

Hello Borislav,

As mentioned before, the commissions paid after a lease is executed and your new tenant moves in is equal to one month's rent on a one year lease. Additional fees could apply if the Realtor is acting as your property manager with monthly fees involved there. You typically would not pay anything up front.

One last note. On the listing agreement, it discusses renewal fees and if you would pay an additional commission if your tenant renews their lease and stays for another year. Our office does NOT charge that fee, but some offices do so be aware of that when signing up your next Realtor. Always a hire an experienced Realtor that knows how to review an application and credit report from future tenants.

The Realtor will sit down with you and discuss what the market is getting in rent for homes similar to yours and your neighborhood. You will be paying commissions. The Realtor can discuss with you what commission you would like to offer.
