Property Management Life Cycle
During your time at McGrath Real Estate, your experience as a landlord tends to be a cyclical process. Whether that is every year or every two years will depend on your lease length but there are certain events and fees that every Landlord will experience. First, your home will be put on the market for rent. After your home has been successfully rented, the property will need to be inspected. McGrath Real Estate typically performs three inspections within a year to report the condition of the property. It is extremely important to every Landlord to know when they can expect their rental income. Every month our Accounting department performs certain imperative tasks to charge your account, deposit your rent and notify you of any unusual circumstances. At the end of each lease, we will begin the lease renewal process. Your lease will either be renewed or your home put back on the market (in which case you would begin at the Marketing Timeline again). We encourage our owners to renew their leases if it is in their best interest to do so.
McGrath Real Estate created the Client Advocate Team to be your guide throughout the entire process of the management of your home. If you ever have any questions, concerns or comments please contact Client Advocate.
