How it works financially

For every rental that the agent sells the Globexs tariffs apply: If there is no management contract with the owner the commission level is 20%. If there is a full-management contract in place (entry-exit-cleaning), the commission level is 30%.
The agent sends Globexs a monthly commission invoice for the rentals (10%). Globexs does not get involved in the services of entry/exit/cleaning. These activities are organized by the agent who gets to keep all the profit. For example: if the agent takes care of entry/exit/cleaning he receives a netto commission of 20%. If the owner takes care of entry/exit/cleaning the agent receives a netto commission of 10%.
The agent receives a 10% commission for all the legal services that are sold in his area, as well as a 10% affiliate commission for our webshop-sales.
The agency contract is for a 5-year period with a built-in right to renew.
