Perhaps the foremost concern of rental property owners is: What's the most clear-cut and fair way to pay the firm tasked with managing my property?

After more than a decade in real estate and property management, the Urbana RE team has found the flat-fee method the company employs to be the best for all involved.

Rather than hassling and haggling with percentages, Urbana RE has a flat-rate management fee and provides all the full-level services of percentage rate competitors. This means their management fee is not determined by the rental price.

Take a look at the testimonials from Urbana RE clients.

"I own a condo in (Washington) DC that gets a pretty high rental rate, and I wanted property management. It did not seem fair to me to pay so much in property management fees just because of my rental price," -Victoria M., Washington, DC

"I'm on a tight budget when it comes to my rental property, so a flat-rate management fee makes it affordable for me to have all the benefits and security of property management. Urbana RE does good work for me." – Fred K., Rockville, MD

Better still, Urbana RE management fees start as low as $100 per month.  Other companies insist on a fee of 8 to 10 percent of the rental price.

Urbana RE customers and clients have found its methods to be affordable, fair, and efficient.

Now, it's clear that the flat-fee costs less money, but does that mean less services?

Not at all. Here's what you get when you go with Urbana:

·      - Full advertising of the property through Google, Zillow, Trulia, Militarybyowner, MLS, AHRN.


·       - Thorough applicant screening
