What’s the “One-time setup fee” for?
We charge a one-time setup fee to cover the initial costs we incur in “dressing up” or staging your unit for marketing, to make it attractive for prospect tenants. This is also where we take our initial costs from, for showing the unit to interested/prospect tenants, screening inquiries for qualified ones, and for preparation of necessary documents such as the lease/rental contracts and the notices to the building admin. This is also where we take our hard costs in marketing (paid advertising).
This “dressing up” does not include any alterations in any fixed interior design of your unit. It also does not include addition of any large-sized or heavy furniture. It only involves thorough, professional cleaning (if required), possible re-arrangement of furniture and appliances, addition of removable ornaments like table centerpieces, flower vases, corner vases, frames, etc.; proper bed setting, use of curtains as appropriate, and other similar home improvements.
