I find 4 weeks is about the standard time for getting paid from realestate agents. Not saying it's okay just saying that is how long it takes for me to get paid.
Like I said depends on the girl doing the property management .
The last time I did r/e work was in 2005 local agent ring and give me 14 cleanup jobs , grass all 2' high and want catch and remove . We did them within 3 days with our regular schedule jobs . I put bills in ranging from 120-140 plus gst for each.
She ring me week later and said we won't be using you anymore as you too dear . I asked what do you expect to pay for cleanup , her reply was we can get that done for 50-60 bucks.
2 months later she ring want cleanup I say get ya 60 buck boy to do it.
I have jobs I bill to agents but they from owners who sick of the rubbish the agents give them.
Years before had an agent who would give me everything and near ask for price , she say I use you because job always done properly and never a complaint. After 2 years she left and I never ever got another job , I rang and say why we don't get anymore work the answer came back my boyfriend is lawny.
And other problem was waiting 2-3 months to get paid because no money in rent account .
In the end had enough pushing to fit in cleanups and wait months for money , don't need the stress.
So now policy is no r/e work unless for owners
