What does no OP offered mean? I believe it has something to do with a commission offer or split between realtors?

OP as every one mentioned is owner paid commission, meaning the owner/landlord pays a portion or a full fee. Consequently: "NO OP" means full commission to be paid by the tenant.

Hello Joan,

OP is the acronym for Owner Pay commission.

So No OP means No Owner Pay Commission.

OP mean Owner Pays (commission) This means that the owner is NOT paying any commission to brokers. Hence, the brokers commission collect the fee from you. Best deals are always through brokers...
Good luck!

OP stands for Owner Pays a one month commission to the broker.

No OP is for opposite meaning the fee would soley be coming from your client/Tenant

"OP" stands for "owner pays" meaning that the owner will pick up the broker fee on the behalf of the tenant (who would normally pay). "One month OP" means the owner will contribute one month fee and tenants would make up any difference. Please let me know if I can be of assistance with any rental questions you have.

Hi Joan. Just to reiterate, because sometimes six exact responses are simply not enough.

OP = Owner pays the brokers commission.

NO OP = YOU pay the brokers commission.

What does it all mean when we out it together? You pay first month's rent (maybe even first and last) and a security deposit that is usually equal to a full months rent. Then, you also pay the brokers commission which might be up to 15% of the yearly rent (approximately equal to a month and a half's rent).

Keep in mind we are in the rental season big time and there is little available. Get with a broker, get your paperwork together and get serious. Good luck.

OP means Owner pays. The broker should reduce or not charge a broker fee at all.

Thank you!

"OP” (meaning Owner Pays) written on apartment listing, this is meant for the agent or broker.

It means that the Landlord is willing to compensate the agent or broker a fee for filling their vacancy.

So when you are showed an apartment that is “No Fee” by a licensed Real Estate agent, the landlord is paying their fee.
