Collecting Your Rental Income

Sun Realty offers many payment options and plans to make it easier than ever to keep your home rented. With our enhanced Owner Portal, you can view all payments and reservations made to your home 24/7. Your rental income is direct deposited around the beginning of every month (following collection) to your bank account.

Distribution of Income

Due to North Carolina Real Estate Commission regulations, the first half of rental income disbursed to you cannot exceed more than 50% of the weekly rent amount, and the second half of rental income is direct deposited to your bank account around the first of every month, following your guest’s departure. Sun Realty will deduct our commission from each half of proceeds and a detailed owner statement is emailed to you simultaneously.

Getting You Paid

Sun Realty’s property management software is integrated to track all activity associated with your home. You will receive monthly statements including an activity report, rental income, and expenses that are easy to read and understand. You can also view all activity online with your easy-to-use Owner Portal.
