Rents are collected by the fifth day of each month. Rental proceeds and late fees are paid on a predetermined date. In the event of late payments, collection practices are started promptly and evictions, should they be necessary, are handled in a timely and efficient manner to reduce the chance of difficult or costly situations.
Each month you will receive a detailed income and expense report. At the end of the year you are provided with a comprehensive statement for your tax records. You always know exactly where you stand regarding income and expenses.

Edwards Real Estate Investments
Although no one can predict the future, The Edwards Companies and its affiliate Edwards Capital Partners are committed to the belief that real estate, as an asset class is an excellent short or long-term investment. We believe that real estate offers a one-of-a-kind investment advantage of portfolio diversification with investments that… 1) provide monthly income and cash flow; 2) can be leveraged as needed over time; and 3) produce equity over the long term through steady appreciation and debt pay down if loans are applicable. When acquired, redeveloped, and managed efficiently, the owners of investment real estate will build wealth that can be counted on well into the future. No matter if your preferred interest is a short-term “flip” or long-term “buy-and-hold” strategy, The Edwards Companies and Edwards Capital Partners are ready to partner with you.Learn More
