Landlords to have several properties or a building of apartments to track have a lot of choices when it comes to property management apps. What is often overlooked, however, are the small (often live-in or small time) landlords who have only a few units to track and therefore find most of the complex property management systems too expensive and too complicated for their needs.
This is where Rentate.com steps in. It’s simple, but offers some of the sophisticated extras you might need or expect from good management software. It’s entirely Web-based, so you can easily access it from anywhere and don’t need any installed software on your machine for it to work.
Better, it allows you to connect to your tenants so they can read forms, look at rent/lease payment histories, and more from a convenient (and branded, if you like) Web portal. This potentially saves you a lot of secretarial and office work, complying with requests or digging through records to see who’s paid when and who hasn’t.
Everyone from the one-unit with multiple tenants to the full on apartment complex manager will likely find Rentate useful. Some of the ad-ons that can be used are also helpful. Tenants can not only look up their payment histories or their lease agreements on the site, but they can also enter and track maintenance requests, find out of units are available, and even download and print documents or receipts.
Pricing plans start at just $5.95/month (2 units, limited features) and max out at $49.95/month (unlimited units, all features). Each account includes 14 days free to try the app.
