Royalty and National Ad Fund Fees

Royalty and National
Ad Fund Fees

Our fee structure is designed to be straightforward and advantageous for your business growth:

  • Royalty Fee: 7% of your gross property management revenue, with a minimum of $200.
  • National Ad Fund Contribution: 1% of your property management revenue, with a minimum of $195.For example, if you manage a rental unit with a monthly rent of $1000 and charge a 10% management fee, your monthly revenue is $100. You would pay just $7 in royalties and contribute $1 to the National Ad Fund.

Why Is This A Competitive Advantage?

Your contribution to the National Ad Fund grants you access to national and regional advertising methods that are typically out of reach for smaller property managers. This significantly boosts your ability to attract new rental property owner clients, giving you a competitive edge in the industry.

By leveraging these national advertising channels, you can grow your client base and enhance your market presence, all while maintaining affordable and scalable software costs.

Property Management and Accounting Software Fees

Our property management and accounting software offers affordability and scalability. For just $250 per month for the first user and $60/month for each additional user, you gain access to comprehensive features that are not limited by the number of doors you manage.

Additionally, our franchisees benefit from automated rental vacancy postings to 20-30 popular websites, including Zillow,, and Hot Pads, ensuring maximum exposure for your properties. With our software, you'll efficiently manage your properties and enjoy the perks of a scalable, cost-effective solution.

Property Management and Accounting Software Fees

Bookkeeping Assistance Program

Our Bookkeeping Assistance Program is a flat fee of $425 per month with an unlimited number of units. The Bookkeeping Assistance Program allows our franchise owners to focus on growing their businesses rather than hassling with the accounting, which can be extremely time-consuming.

Website, Email, and Learning Center

Website, Email, and Learning Center

Each franchise receives one of our standard websites at no additional charge. For ongoing website hosting, e-mail hosting, and access to our online learning center, the cost is $65 per month.

Salary and Wage Expenses

Salary and Wage Expenses

Most of our franchisees start with the franchise owner growing the business full-time and with a part-time receptionist as support. When the franchise grows to 60-100 units under management, then those units are delegated to a property manager while the franchise owner focuses on growing the business. Salary expenses are kept low and only increased as revenue builds.
