Vacation Rental Management Pricing
We charge 15% on the amount paid out on various websites after taxes and the cleaning costs as a vacation rental management fee. We will assist in procuring the various business licenses required by the county and state and will facilitate the payment of taxes at a county level.( We have published a recent article on taxes in both Osceola and Polk counties).
We generally invoice guests for cleans in our pricing but as a guide we charge $100 per clean for a 3 bed, $120 for a 4 bed, $135 for a 5 bed and $150 for a 6 bed home. Regret that we are unable to manage larger homes. All cleans include a 'starter pack' of soaps, bathroom tissue, paper towel, dishwasher tabs and dishwasher liquid.
We do not charge for guest callouts and always assess the maintenance requirements for your home personally before calling a tradesman. We do not charge for changing light bulbs and batteries for smoke detectors but do charge $5 to change the AC filter every three months. Ad hoc charges like the replacement or retagging of fire extinguisher are billed at the cost of the item or service.
Other costs for running a holiday home includes monthly pest control of $35 and pool care of between $60-$95 per month depending on the size of the pool. Lawncare is quoted upon request but a ballpark figure is around $85 per month.
Our contract has no fixed term and can be terminated by either party with thirty days notice.
