PHOENIX, AZ - Mark-Taylor Residential (Mark-Taylor), a trusted leader in luxury property management, is proud to announce the expansion of its build-to-rent (BTR) portfolio. This aligns with the industry’s growing demand for spacious, private housing that bridges the divide between renting and owning.

As Mark-Taylor's latest addition, the Cottages at McDowell is a desirable alternative to traditional multifamily housing. In partnership with the esteemed WestStone Group, this Class-A rental community provides a refreshing, stress-free living experience.

Cottages at McDowell features one- and two-bedroom single-family homes coupled with top-tier smart home technology that create an ideal environment for relaxation, entertainment, and connection. Luxury offerings include maintenance-free private backyards, two resort-style pools and a fully equipped fitness center.

"This asset class is meeting the needs of those who wish to enjoy the benefits of renting without the burden of owning, and it is rapidly gaining popularity."
