Good property management software for landlords can help to transform your entire company.
But how do you find the best solution for your organisation? We have talked to our customers and other leading companies across the Nordic and CEE regions and the wider world. Here are their recommendations:
All solutions you acquire to boost your business should also increase your earning potential. For rental property management software, there are various ways to measure its financial impact. We have outlined six benefits our customers say have given them the most financial impact :
“The easy integrations mean less work for the accounting and financing teams per rental unit. We can handle more units and grow faster. We have revised and broadened our growth plans as a result.”
“Automated rental agreements translated into more productive work hours for frontline managers. More face time with tenants talking about value even during the pandemic than before. Leading to higher retention rates.”
“I track the property management costs as a percentage of total revenue. That one landlord can manage an entire large building gives huge savings. Now they directly exchange information with accounting.”
“Noticed higher tenant retention rates after the launch of our white-label app. Additionally, seeing new revenue from extra services we added to the app start to increase month to month is always good a sign to us.”
“We saw more recommendations via word of mouth. We are reducing marketing costs. Now we barely do any marketing. The portal plus online listings are creating a strong digital channel on its own for getting and onboarding tenants.”
“Fewer late payments and delinquencies thanks to reminders and payment automation. Just a change couple of percentages translates into a lot of money for a larger portfolio like ours. ”
Strengthening and simplifying your tenant relationships is one of the benefits that almost all property managers we have spoken to have pointed out. Automating routine interactions with your tenants can free up your resources for higher-value activities. Modern software provides a mutually pleasing experience both to landlords and residents, eliminating situations where both sides internally scream at each other.
The best of breed solutions offer tenants what they are looking for, such as:
All of that amplifies your brand promise, the value you provide to your tenants with other means. Whether you provide straightforward, cost-effective co-living or A-class premium studios, your tenants will appreciate the clarity.
Some software you use daily always feels fresh and never gets old, like drinking from a spring of clear water. The secret behind that sense of freshness is the correct application of User Experience design:
“User experience (UX) focuses on having a deep understanding of users, what they need, what they value, their abilities, and also their limitations. It also takes into account the business goals and objectives of the group managing the project. UX best practices promote improving the quality of the user’s interaction with and perceptions of your product and any related services.”usability.gov
As researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell stated: “In many cases, even minor fixes can have a major impact, offering a return on investment that’s several times larger than the conventional use of financial incentives or marketing and education campaigns.”
You can read more about their findings at the Harvard Business Review. However, to summarise, their research showed that three aspects give a 15% improvement in engagement:
All these aspects are crucial in the field of property management where landlords, senior property managers and executives alike can face crushing workloads at critical points of growth. If the property management software for landlords you chose offers a great user experience, that can be an asset not only communicating with tenants but internally as well: preventing burnout and helping to retain key employees.
They say: “time is money”. For landlords during their busy season, time can be even more valuable than money, slipping through your hands like sands when you most need it.
