The following 4 technology tips can be implemented by rental property owners to simplify processes and increase efficiencies in business for you and your tenants.

  1. Property Management Software
    A good Property Management software will allow the tenant’s experience to be streamlined. Online Payments, Reports and History will allow tenants to get the most accurate and up to date information. This software is key for property owners to keep all their financial information, tenant and financial information in one easy to access location. One such affordable starter software is Rentec Direct
  2. Virtual tour software
    Creating virtual tours is a great way for prospective tenants to view the property prior to scheduling a showing. This eliminates unnecessary showings for those prospects who find the property unsuitable for their needs. One such option, Richtours offers do it your self tours.

This single element will reduce cost, increase tenant longevity and weed out costly delinquencies and future evictions. You might appreciate a product such as Equifax Tenant Screening to suit your needs.
