Buyer's Guide

Residential property management involves high turnover and a lot of hands-on work finding and retaining clients. Software for the residential sector therefore includes features like online rental payment, tracking expenses and income, online account access for tenants, tracking upkeep and repair, and online background and credit checks.

The most robust residential management software will allow managers and owners to post their available units directly to popular listing sites. These software vendors often make free website hosting and design available for companies to integrate with these features.

Here are some factors to consider when selecting your residential property management software:

Website integration & marketing

Fully integrate your website into your property management software. In this way you can list vacancies and even post those vacancies to popular listing sites like Apartments.com, Rentals.com, Google, or Craigslist.

Online resident screening & portal

Transfer the customer experience online. This can start with rental applications and resident screening and then move into a tenant portal where they can pay their rent, check utility bills, request a work order, and more.

Additional features

Every residential property management software program is different. Some contain payroll management and check mailing services, some have fixed asset management to support long term business development, some even have lead tracking, some have inventory tracking and dispatching. Consider the services most useful for your situation, and ensure that you get a program that fits those needs.
