If you have a rental home or property, or multiple properties to rent out, you may not have time to find the right tenant, screen them and deal with any issues that arise, such as maintenance issues or failure to pay problems. A property management company can help you with your rental properties, allowing you to simply sit back and collect rent. If you are looking for a company that offers these services, you may wonder what the benefit is for you. Here are a few of the benefits of online property management services for rental property owners.

 

Allows You to Collect Rent Online

 

One of the biggest benefits to online property management services is that you can collect rent online. Your tenants can pay rent through the property management portal using a debit or credit card. The money can then be deposited directly into your account, less any property management fees that may be due. This is much easier than having tenants mail a check or money order and then having to go to the bank to cash it. And it makes it easier on tenants as well, as most people don't write checks any longer and use online banking services.

 

Allows You to Distribute Documents and Notices Quickly

 

Another benefit to online property management services is that it allows you to distribute documents and notices quickly. Have you received a notice from your HOA that the tenant is not cutting the grass or is breaking other rules? If so, you can email the notice to the property management group and the tenant quickly, helping to get the problem resolved in a timely manner.

 

Get Notified of Potential Problems

 

The last benefit of online property management services is that it allows you as a rental property owner to be notified of potential problems faster. Typically, when a property manager has not received rent or is having a maintenance issue at your property, they call you. If you do not answer, they leave a message. This can turn into a game of phone tag, all the while, the situation at your property is sitting unresolved. Online services allow you to receive emails or text messages, which is a fast and easy way to determine what the problem is and then the best course of action.
