Shopping center expenses estimation help

5 Replies

Hi, I'm trying to estimate how much the management fee and regular maintenance (snow plowing landscaping ) for a small shopping center in New Jersey about 15-20 retail stores so we can get to the real NOI with our own numbers, owners bookkeeping isn't best Thanks Any help is appreciated Izzy

Hello Izzy,

Sounds like you will still need to find some specific costs, but you can look up taxes paid and that will be the most significant cost that you can't change. Utilize these line items below for property management, and you should be able to understand your cost / SF on the building. These are for a building 10,270 SF if you want to utilize a % estimate. In your situation, it's probably more important to know who is paying what. Therefore, it will be easier to understand what you can still pass through to the tenants vs what they are already paying. Management however, can be up to 10% of the NOI and your level of service may be negotiable. Hope this helps.
