Real estate brokers are welcome to post on Caretaker as long they keep the experience great for the rest of our users. To that end, we ask that all brokers follow the below policies when listing property.
If you're charging a broker's fee to the renter please include it in the rent price. Here's an example:
If you are listing a twelve month lease at $3,000 per month and you would like to earn a fee of 15% or $5,400, you must list the rent price as $3,450.
You must accept an applicant on Caretaker and accept any deposit and first month of rent required to hold the rental on our platform. The funds will immediately go into escrow and our support team will release it as needed to the right recipients. We're happy to release part of the funds (i.e. the first month of rent, which can serve as your fee) to you directly and part (i.e. the deposit) to the landlord!
If you're representing a client that is applying to a unit on Caretaker, your client must pay for their rent and sign a lease on our platform.
If you have any questions or need help making sure that the right amounts to go the correct account, email [email protected]
No bait and switch
Creating a listing that is no longer available or doesn't exist to attract clients is strictly prohibited.
Messaging Caretaker listers asking to represent them exclusively is strictly prohibited!
