The modern renter expects the ability to view property details online and to quickly apply to rent and we offer it!
Prospective residents can fill out an online application through our postings, our team completes the screening process and fills the unit quickly.
AppFolio is 100% integrated into our website so that we can seamlessly accept rent online, post and update vacancies with a few clicks, and accept online maintenance requests that automatically create work orders. With the ability to immediately post new vacancies to our SEO optimized website, we can help prospective renters easily find our listings and ultimately fill vacancies faster.
With AppFolio, our team provides a seamless online leasing experience for prospective renters. The prospective renter submits an online application, we run a background screen, then we sign the lease — all electronically!
Making this process easy and simple for the modern renter and our team means we can rent properties more efficiently and faster, every time.
Prospective residents can fill out guest cards and apply online giving us the ability to capture their information in real time and approve these residents even faster. The online application is even mobile friendly!
Resident Screening is centralized in AppFolio. Applicants can easily be screened on the spot while at the property showing and the results are returned within seconds rather than hours.
This easy-to-read Screening Report paired with rent payment history from Experian RentBureau allows us the unique opportunity to choose the most qualified resident for your property while they are still interested.
We offer the option for residents to conveniently pay their rent online 24/7 instead of mailing checks. They can pay once, establish a recurring payment, or make a last minute payment.
With a variety of online payment options including E-Check, Credit Card, and Electronic Cash Payments, funds are deposited faster and more securely. The online tenant portal is completely integrated with our accounting records and residents really appreciate the convenience and accessibility the online services provide them. Our team is so much more efficient without the need to shuffle checks and drive to the bank.
We use Property Meld to schedule and manage all repair and maintenance issues. This robust system allows residents to create work orders right from their phone. Residents can easily check the status of their request as well as chat with maintenance and their property manager. Our maintenance team will receive the request via email and text and can easily schedule the repair with a few clicks and update the resident. The system also includes automatic reminders and is 100% mobile friendly. Property managers and residents enjoy the simplicity and performance of the program.
Another important tool we use to manage your property is Podio, a project management and collaboration tool. Podio allows us to manage content, conversations, and processes and create the focus and clarity our team members need to get their best work done. This fully customizable software allows us to systemize our processes and clearly defines team members’ responsibilities to improve service, effectiveness and relationships.
