I have a three unit building, ground floor retail with two apartments upstairs in brownstone Brooklyn and am considering a relocation. What would be a reasonable and expected management fee to take care of the building for me?
In the past, I had a condo near the beach in SC and the management fee was 12% of the gross rent but the rent was much lower. Much, much lower, by a factor of 10.
What's the going rate in the area? I imagine that it would be a significantly lower percentage of the gross.
Also, is there anyone that you like and would highly recommend?
Any advice or thoughts are welcomed.
I think about 4% is more typical in NYC.

I don't have recommendations, but I made a phone call to Square Indigo Inc on Rockwell Pl because they were managing a small building that I was considering buying. I think you'll find a range of percentages depending on the level of service you need and probably minimums for small properties. If you're an absentee LL you'll probably want everything - taking out the trash, cleaning the hallways, collection of rents, handling leases & renewals and other paperwork, someone for tenants to call for repairs That's going to cost money and I'd be very surprised if someone would do it for 4% on a 3 unit building.

Oh, and if you'd consider selling so you can take the money and run and avoid the trouble of being an absentee landlord, I could probably be interested in buying it, depending on location, income & asking price. I would self manage the bldg, and handle the residential units w/ a partner with experience with commercial tenants. Pls send an email to email@example.com if you're open to selling the building (and avoiding a sales broker's commision) or selling an interest and keeping a piece as a silent partner without the management headaches.
