Essential Tech Tools Landlords Should Be Using In 2021
Owning rental properties is an excellent way to build positive cashflow on a monthly basis and thanks to the internet there are a wide variety of convenient tech tools that landlords can use to grow their businesses.
In this article, we will break down some of the top tech tools landlords should be using in 2021 and beyond.
Online Rental Applications
Since Covid-19, landlords everywhere want to do their part to reduce the spread of the virus and limit potentially infecting others.
One of the best ways to accomplish this goal is to use online rental applications because with an online app, a tenant can apply for a rental property over the internet without having to visit a manager in person.
A few of the online rent application tools that every should be using include Turbo Tenant, eForms.com, DocuSign, Avail. co and ezlandlordforms.com.
After receiving a prospective tenants application, and doing a background check on the applicant, landlords should arrange for the applicant to tour the rental property themselves via a contactless showing.
One of the best platforms for arranging a contactless showing in 2021 is rently.com. With this platform, a prospective tenant can arrange a showing of a rental property then arrange to view the property themselves.
Gone are the days of prospective tenants having to visit a landlords office, or meeting the landlord at the rental property because with rently.com a tenant can schedule the tour themselves and a landlord can know when the tenant enters/exits the property.
Online Rent Collection
Last of all, but most important, every landlord in 2021 should be using tools which enable them to collect rent from their tenants over the internet.
Some of the best online rent collection platforms to use include Buildium, Rentec Direct, and App Folio because these platforms also make it possible for tenants to schedule maintenance appointments and more.
