Accounting Services

We have a great software system that helps us track your income, expenses and much more. We will make sure that you are never left wondering what’s going on financially with your properties.

  • Accounts Payable – we can show you exactly where your money goes each month
  • Accounts Receivable – we have constant contact with any tenants who get behind, but most importantly, we screen them to make sure we have solid, reliable tenants.
  • Security Deposits – collect and prepare disbursements
  • Monthly Income and Expense Statements – each month you will have a complete breakdown of your properties and units

Leasing

  • Process evictions when necessary

  • Determine availability of similar space
  • Establish market concessions/amenities
