Owners in my experience pay based on the monthly rent listed on the lease agreement.
Although, as you can see from all the different answers ..... the famous phase, " It depends " comes into play. lol Owners could also structure flat rate agreements with you, like $100-$1000 per lease. Also remember it's all open to negotiation. Are you paying for marketing sites or are they? Newspaper adds? Signs? Etc. My suggestion is to see what the owner is looking to pay, get it in writing, and perform by getting them a lease ....... even if the commission is lower than market you can build up your recommendations and experience. This investment in yourself will end up paying off more than any 1 commission. Plus hopefully you LOVE to Lease!! It's a blast finding people places to call home and/or a spot to build their dream business in! Best of Luck, Bonnie Laslo
