Our Process

At Barsky Property Management, we manage your property’s marketing, leasing and maintenance—every step of the way. Each month, we follow a few simple steps that ensure a smooth process for the tenant and the property owner.

STEP 1

Invoice Tenant – 25th Day

We submit an invoice to your tenant on the 25th of every month prior to the due date.

STEP 2

Collect Rent Payment – 1st > 5th Day

We collect rent payments on the first to the fifth day of the month or within a five-day grace period when the rent is due. Late charges will be applied if rent is received after the grace period.

STEP 3

Monthly Charges – 20th > 25th Day

We collect any monthly charges from the tenant, such as late fees, utilities and maintenance reimbursements. The owner approves all maintenance repairs above $500. We will invoice all charges a month prior to avoid any late fees.

STEP 4

Submit Invoice to Owner – 10th > 20th Day

Every 10th and 20th day of the month, we invoice the owner for any fees due, such as reimbursements and management fees.

STEP 5

Deposit to Owner – 15th & 25th Day

Every 15th and 25th day of the month, the rent balance will be sent to the owner via ACH to the appropriate bank account or by check.
