What’s the Number One Mistake Rental Investors Make When Selecting a Manager? See The Weak Property Management Company’s Sleight of Hand: Focusing on Cost to Distract From Poor Performance

Day to day management performance usually makes up 90% of your overall bottom-line outcome. The cost of that management usually makes up about 10% over the long term. What piece of the pie are you going to focus on when selecting your long term asset manager? We are not the cheapest, but we are the best, usually by a long shot, and we focus on the 90%.

Oversee All Maintenance Needs

With full service, we take full control over most of the decisions needed to maximize your bottom line profit. We’ll still keep you updated on what our strategy is, how it’s playing out, and involve you in repair costs & issues when needed. Generally, for our owners who choose full service, our goal is to maximize bottom-line profit while minimizing headaches. We don’t ask for a lot of input, in fact, this offering is not a good fit for owners who want a lot of say in the day-to-day decisions. That’s what placement is for with our company, and we can even help you setup software to help with rent collection and maintenance reporting. We do not have an offering where our staff is directed on average daily decisions, and you can read about our strong management philosophy here. Instead, we try to shield you from as much of the hassle of being a rental investor as we possibly can while delivering excellent bottom-line results. Our full-service owners enjoy the benefits of being rental investors with very little stress

Great Results Require Investment

For almost 20 years our company only had 3 costs, management, new move in placement expense, and an onboard charge. When inflation took off, particularly the cost to employ decently committed staff, our company risked insolvency and poor quality. Both of which had to be addressed with a more industry standard set of reasonable service charges

1% of Sales Price

If a resident that we placed in the home purchases the home (within 90 days of lease end), we will be entitled to a 1% commission. We can advise and help with contracts, repairs.


$95 Utility Connect Charge

Utility billing systems are one of our biggest accounting challenges. They are all different, often require unique logins, after buyouts often require multiple modules to pay the same type of account. It’s much easier for an investor to quickly handle their own connections, and this cost is meant to motivate that action, not for us to charge and handle it, but we will if it makes sense.


30% Lease Renewal & Extension

Resident retention is our top priority and we invest heavily in the resources to deliver great results. It’s always a winning strategy to bet on a known great resident, and we are constantly exploring opportunities to enhance our ability to retain our best partners. This charge is 30% of the first new month’s rent. Prorated as needed for shorter or longer terms.


$57 Charge While Vacant

Post COVID, rental investors seem to take a much more active role in setting prices for vacant listings. You can’t manage your way out of a bad location, and you can’t deliver dramatically above market rents no matter how good you are. At least not for reasonable credit quality. Investors consistently fail to properly account for the very real cost of vacancy. Our days on market have extended dramatically, and that’s a cost we need support to bear if allowed to drag out. If we don’t drive the strategy we can’t take responsibility for the results.


$35 Additional Inspections

For most of the quality homes and residents we manage, semi-annual inspections more than suffice, and we complete these for no charge. Additional inspections are acceptable up to quarterly and will cost $35.


Most of these listed costs are optional

We tried to create an environment where our standard recommended services are mostly included in our standard management charges. Most of the costs we list here are opportunities (sold commission or lease extension), or can be avoided for owners who handle their administrative tasks like cutting keys and connecting utilities. Many others can be reduced to a tiny amount by following our standard procedures.

$195 Legal Owner Change

There is a surprising amount of work involved in legally transferring ownership of a rental home. Nearly all documents, owner and property setup need to be updated. In addition we have to send a split income 1099 to both owners.


Additional Services

Occassionally an owner needs us to undertake services that are not standard such as waiting at a property for hours to meet their vendor or a section 8 inspector etc. In those instances we require that our staff have your written pre-approval and the cost will be $49 an hour. When you receive quotes from our operations division for direct home repairs you would otherwise have to pay a 3rd party vendor, they are directly quoted and tend to hover around $69 an hour.


Cancellations & Violations

This is a complicated world, and we know investors must take the path that makes sense for them, so we offer a reasonable exit strategy for all stages of the relationship.

Active Lease in place?

50% of the remaining management fees (easily calculated from agreement) to be released from our agreement.

Vacant, No Photos / Scan?

$350 and this will include if we move a resident out, relist the home after you’ve confirmed we are re-renting, then it’s taken off market. Also new signups who cancel for any reason.

Vacant, We took Photos / Scan?

$575 and you can keep all of our photos with no restrictions. This only applies if we took recent photos. It would not apply for photos taken for the previous lease. One charge not combined.

$495 For preforeclosure or premature sales listing


The cost we all face to find committed partners

It’s very well known at this point how hard, and costly it is to secure and retain amazing staff. Obviously an amazing company promising leading results must be made up of amazing people. In a post COVID world the addage “you get what you pay for” has truly never been more relevant.


How Do We Prorate?

At times we might secure a lease for under a year to bridge seasonal slow periods, and make other minor strategy adjustments. We will always fix proration mistakes fairly.

All costs reflect a 12 month term. We simply take the standard 12 month charge, then prorate by the actual months extended. Example: $1000 a month rental, extended at 30%.

($300 divided by 12) X Actual Months


MoveZen is Always Transparent About All of Our Costs

MoveZen does not sell homes, but there’s a good chance you know one of our brokers who do. They affiliate with a sales brokerage and we support them in helping you to get top-notch service, even if we don’t offer it ourselves. Learn more.


We won’t interact with your leads or interfere with your process in any way.  If contacted, we’ll auto-forward rental leads that we receive directly, or manually when needed.  Your listing will note that you should be contacted directly, but many will miss this or opt for the more convenient form.
