Investing in technology is a requirement for San Diego property management companies today. With all of the online platforms and accounting software available, property managers who are willing to work in innovative ways can automate more of their systems and manage homes more effectively and efficiently.
RentSimpli is a full-service San Diego property management company specializing in single family homes, townhouses, condos, mobile homes, small commercial buildings and small apartments. We believe strongly in technology and we use it to market, lease, manage, and maintain your properties.
Here are just four of the many ways that technology helps us help you. With these systems, we save time and money, and that leads to a better investment experience.
Transparency with Accounting and Systems
One of the best reasons to embrace technology in property management is the transparency that’s achieved. This is especially clear with our accounting and bookkeeping practices. We’re able to provide accounting statements and reports that include up-to-the-minute data. You can log onto your owner portal from anywhere in the world and get clear, detailed, accurate information on how your investment property is performing. It’s easy to see the rent that was collected and the bills that were paid.
All of our systems are transparent thanks to our technology. You can see when rent was collected and when you were paid. You can review maintenance invoices and view lease documents. With everything transparent and available, we’re held accountable for every dollar we spend and action we take.
Communication with Tenants and Owners
Technology makes our communication a lot more streamlined as well. Instead of calling on the phone and waiting to talk to us, we’re more than happy to receive a quick text with a question or read an email that comes in through the online portal.
Our investment in technology has opened the doors for many different methods of communication, and we’re present and available on all of them. Many of our tenants prefer texts and emails to phone calls or in-person meetings. We use our online system to track and document all correspondence, keeping us organized and compliant with all state, local, and federal laws.
Consistent Marketing, Leasing, and Screening
The leasing process is faster and more consistent with our innovative technology. It starts with marketing. We’re able to share your listing with dozens of online rental sites just by loading one advertisement. We can include more pictures and add video tours. Potential applicants can see what our rental criteria are, schedule showings and fill out applications online. This moves the leasing process along, leaving you with fewer vacancy days.
The lease itself is able to be viewed and signed online. It’s always accessible to tenants and owners, and we can handle lease renewals electronically as well.
Documented Inspections and Maintenance
With the ability to submit maintenance requests online, tenants are more likely to make their repair requests as soon as they see an issue. This protects the condition of your home and helps us avoid larger and more expensive repairs down the road. We’re able to document and track the full work order process, and it provides you with a clear record of work that was done on your property.
Inspection reports and photos are loaded into your portal, giving you an opportunity to see how your property looks before and after a lease period. It provides you with peace of mind and shows you how we’re doing while we expertly manage your San Diego rental property.
We love to talk about technology and how it helps us manage homes like yours in San Diego, La Mesa, El Cajon, Chula Vista, Santee, Rancho Bernardo, Escondido, Fallbrook, Temecula, and Murrieta. For more information, please contact us at RentSimpli.
