Start to Finish, Land to Lease UP

McLain Investments provides services from start to finish for Build-to-Rent (BTR) and Single-Family Rental Neighborhoods (SFRN). Our residents value the freedom a rental property offers with four walls of personal space, unrivaled flexibility, and hassle-free living. At our Communities, a professional management team takes care of everything from home repairs to yard maintenance. We stress so you don't have to. 

McLain Investments has been in the development business for over two decades, bringing experience, expertise and know-how to take an SFRN development project from start to finish - and beyond. In the past six years, McLain has focused on areas of continuous growth through lease management and development for BTR's and SFRN's. While most companies specialize in either Development, Construction, or Lease Management, McLain does it all. This reduces inefficient lag time and gives investors the peace of mind that it is done right the first time and nothing is overlooked.
