  • Why Use a Property Manager for your rental?

    The idea of having to pay a particular percentage of the monthly rent to a property manager can seem somewhat discouraging however the cost is very much worth it! Once you see all of the things our full-service property managers can do for you and your rental property that hesitation will subside! Having a property manager handle all of the stress of your rental property provides numerous benefits such as:

    • Setting an appropriate rental amount. Professional managers are also Real Estate Agents who understand the real estate market and know how to help you set a rental price that is sure to bring a quality tenant.
    • Managers can screen your tenants in numerous ways such as running their credit, eviction record, criminal background, etc which saves you time and money.
    • Managers know contractors and inspectors and will ensure that your rental is ready for the market and is up to code.
    • The Georgia laws for property management can be confusing and property managers stay current with regulations and industry standards, so you don’t have to!
    • The management fee can be considered a tax-write off (check with your accountant to ensure you qualify for this write-off).

    Managers act as a liaison between you and your tenant which comes in handy for numerous reasons. We take the personal relationship out of finding and managing a tenant. Our managers also handle all of the negative situations that may arise which takes the burden off of you. For example: If a tenant does not pay their rent on time the manager will work to collect it. If a tenant needs to be evicted for any reason the manager can handle that as well.

    Management Process

    Our full-service management includes managing your property, managing your tenant and managing your money to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

  • How we manage the home

    First and foremost we manage your home as if it was our own. We want to make sure to protect your investment.

    We will manage the maintenance issues with your property. No matter the age of a home, things break or need repair sometimes. If a tenant has an issue we will coordinate the maintenance to ensure that things are fixed in a timely fashion for your tenants. We only use licensed and insured contractors and will compare contractors to ensure we find someone who will meet all expectations. We pre-screen all contractors before hiring them to work on a home and will fire any contractors that do not meet our expectations.

    We will handle all emergencies. You will not have to worry about receiving a phone call from a tenant at 2am! Our tenants have our after hours phone number to ensure that if an emergency situation arises they can contact us.

    We will ensure all safety precautions are taken. We will check the smoke alarms, locks, look for signs of mold, etc before placing a tenant in the property. We will also respond to any safety issue a tenant may have.

  • How we manage the tenant

    Our property managers represent you, the homeowner, and we will do our best to ensure that you are satisfied with our services.

    We collect the monthly rent from the tenant in a timely fashion. We will communicate with you all issues that arise such as late rent, non-payment, etc. We will call the tenant for you to collect past due rent, file an eviction on your behalf if needed, file garnishment of wages if the situation arises, send the tenant to collections, etc. We will take every step possible to ensure that the owner receives their rent money.

    Enforce the lease. Enforcing the terms of the lease is our most important job. We will drive by the property and complete property inspections to ensure that the tenant is taking care of your property and to ensure that they are not in violation of their lease agreement.

    We will carefully screen each potential applicant so that you may choose the best tenant. We will communicate with the tenant on all issues so you can sit back and relax.

    We will coordinate all move-in and move-out inspections with the tenant and keep you informed on what is going on.

  • How we manage your money

    We have strict guidelines here at Backyard Realty Group about how your money is handled. We follow the Georgia law and the Georgia Real Estate Commission money handling guidelines.

    We collect the monthly rent from your tenant every month. The rent is due on the 1st of each month and late after the 5th. We will impose any late fees or delinquent fees when necessary.

    Rent money is placed into an insured trust account and each rental property has its own record.

    We will disburse the rent to you each month after it is received by the tenant and has been processed. You have the option to have a check mailed to you or to receive your funds by electronic transfer.

    Each month you will receive a detailed summary of the rent received along with invoices for contractors (if applicable).

    Every year we will provide you with a 1099 that includes rent collected for tax reporting purposes.

Atlanta Area Information

Atlanta Property Managers

The city is situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and at 1,050 feet above mean sea level, Atlanta has the highest elevation out of major cities east of the Mississippi River. Atlanta sits atop a ridge south of the Chattahoochee River, which is part of the ACF River Basin. Located at the far northwestern edge of the city, much of the river’s natural habitat is preserved, in part by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

The city’s embrace of modern architecture translated into an ambivalent approach toward historic preservation, leading to the destruction of notable architectural landmarks, including the Equitable Building (Atlanta’s first skyscraper), Terminal Station, and the Carnegie Library. The Fox Theatre - Atlanta's cultural icon - would have met the same fate had it not been for a grassroots effort to save it in the mid-1970s.

Downtown Atlanta contains the most office space in the metro area, much of it occupied by government entities. Downtown is also home to the city’s sporting venues and many of its tourist attractions. Midtown Atlanta is the city’s second-largest business district, containing the offices of many of the region’s law firms. Midtown is also known for its art institutions, cultural attractions, institutions of higher education, and dense form. Buckhead, the city’s uptown district, is eight miles north of Downtown and the city’s third-largest business district. The district is marked by an urbanized core along Peachtree Road, surrounded by suburban single-family neighborhoods situated among dense forests and rolling hills. Wikipedia
