I have seen anywhere from 10-15% for long term residential rentals, but others may charge a more, especially for vacation rentals. Pretty comparable to the US...

These companies perform a valuable service for homeowners, so it is worth the price if you find a good company to work with!

Check the details - it's very different for homes than for condo complexes.
Houses - the owner pays for all the housekeeping, supplies etc.
Condos - the management may pay for the supplies, staff etc.
So - check, and then evaluate the services.
Main thing is your bottom line - ask to see contracts and get estimates for costs that fall on your side of the ledger.

Thanks to all for your input.

My information indicates that a Fee of ~10 % seems fairly standard.

What is included and how are the extras charged?

Such as:
Calling and meeting repair persons.
Arranging for appliance repair or replacement?
Dealing with tenant problems?

Some are easy to please others are impossible to please.

The owners are the other 1/2 of the equation. That is true.
