Simple, Transparent Property Management Fees
You’ll find our Management Fee structure simple, transparent, and very easy to understand. The aim has always been to deliver a quality service that’s responsive, effective and affordable. You won’t find any hidden costs, charges or fees buried in the small print or tacked on to the end of your monthly statements.
Before going into more detail, consider this – if your investment property is rented out for, say, $500 per week, your property manager is going to work out costing you about $45 plus GST per week. With your investment property worth many thousands of dollars, think how much other professionals can charge PER HOUR to give you their services, and weigh that up against the minimal cost of having such a valuable asset professionally looked after.
If you’re comparing our fee structure with other companies that list a lower Management Fee percentage, make sure you’re not going to be charged for anything else at the end of the month. Using the earlier example, some very common extra hidden costs can easily add up to another $30 per month, which translates into an additional 2% on top of the Management Fee.
You’ll be charged the following Management fees for the services we provide:
One Management Fee 10% plus GST of rents collected

The One Management Fee and other charges are subject to variation. managemyproperty will notify you in writing 30 days prior to any changes or alterations in fees and charges. All fees and charges are quoted excluding GST, which is levied as a separate itemised charge on your statements.

Your property will be managed professionally, efficiently, and in full compliance with all current legislation.
Above all, it will always be yours, and that means you are always in control.
