Why Property Management Software is Important to You

Todd Ortscheid - Tuesday, April 07, 2015

Obviously, property management companies buy software packages to make their operations more efficient. But it isn't just about helping the property manager. It's also about helping the client.

When you're looking for a property management company, make sure you pick someone who is using the latest property management software. Brokers using old software (and for some smaller companies, no property management software at all) are doing you a big disservice as their client.

Here are just a few key benefits that you as the client receive from the property manager using the latest property management software:

  • An Owner Portal that allows you to login and see the most up-to-date information on your property.
  • The ability for you to make electronic payments using a bank account or credit card when you need to pay for repairs for your property, instead of having to send paper checks.
  • Direct deposit of your rent payments into your checking account.
  • Having instant online access to your lease documents and owner statements.
  • The ability for your tenants to make electronic payments for their rent, making it more likely that rent will be paid on time.
  • Automatic tracking of repair requests so that your tenants stay happy and your property stays in good shape.
  • Automatic scheduling of inspections of your property, and PDF reports sent directly to your email.
  • And more!

At Central Georgia Realty, we use Propertyware, which is a cloud based solution that is constantly being updated with the latest technology to assist both us and you. Don't hire a property management company using a bargain basement software solution. Give us a call to see how we can help you manage your property. Our service usually pays for itself with reduced vacancy rates!

Tenant Prospects in a Hurry

Todd Ortscheid - Monday, March 30, 2015

If you've been renting properties for a while, then you've probably run into tenant prospects who call wanting to move in almost immediately. There are several reasons that you should be very wary of any prospective tenant who is in such a hurry:

  1. They're frequently getting evicted from their current property, and they're trying to find a new place before the eviction shows up on their record.
  2. Sometimes they're breaking their current lease without paying the required early termination penalties. You may think that that isn't your problem, but consider this: if they're cheating their current landlord, then they're probably going to cheat you, too.
  3. Sometimes they're looking for a place before a criminal conviction pops up on their record.

Now, it's entirely possible that the person is in a hurry for a legitimate reason. But because that isn't the case usually, you need to be extra vigilant in screening these tenants. Never let them talk you into renting to them without a background check. Nowadays, background checks can be done instantly, so there is no legitimate excuse for them not wanting you to do one. Being in a hurry is no excuse.

But what about those problems listed above that won't pop up on the background check? This is why you make absolutely sure to call their previous two landlords, and also speak to their employer. If they won't let you talk to either of them, then reject the tenant. It's not worth the risk. Another tenant prospect will come along.

Do you want to avoid worrying about these things and leave it to a professional? Give us a call and we'll be happy to talk to you about professional property management services.
