As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses and individuals to work remotely. This has led to a swift adoption of technology within industries that were once resistant to change. One such industry is rental housing/rental management. Prospective and current residents now expect (and demand) technology in order to make their lives easier. In this blog post, we will discuss how rental managers can use technology to streamline their operations and provide a better experience for their tenants.
There are many benefits to using technology in rental management. Perhaps the most obvious is that it allows managers to operate their business remotely. This is especially helpful in the current climate, as it eliminates the need for in-person meetings and interactions. Additionally, online tools and applications can make various tasks more convenient for both managers and residents. For example, online payment platforms make it easy for residents to pay rent/dues without having to write a check or go to the office. Online maintenance requests can also save time and hassle for both parties involved when it comes to scheduling and coordination.
Another advantage of using technology is that it can help managers to be more efficient and organized. For instance, there are many software programs that can help managers keep track of important documents, deadlines, and tasks. Additionally, online applications can automate various processes, such as marketing and accounting. This not only saves time, but also allows managers to focus on other aspects of their job.
Overall, it’s clear that there are many advantages to using technology in rental management. In the current climate especially, remote operation is a key benefit. However, even after things return to “normal”, the convenience and efficiency afforded by various tech tools will continue to be valuable for both managers and residents alike. If you’re not already using technology in your rental management business, now is the time to start!
