When you decided on a career in property management did you expect to be spending so many hours completing administrative duties?
Wouldn’t your time be better spent with your properties and tenants or working on ways to grow your business instead of filling out paperwork and ticking boxes?
Managing property, whether as a landlord, letting agent or as a block management group is a paperwork intense job role. On top of that there’s a vast amount of rules, regulations and laws involved taking up your time!
If you want to use your working day more efficiently and spend as much time away from your desk as possible you need to have a system in place.
How much is your time worth?
If you could effectively condense those time-consuming-yet-necessary tasks would it benefit your business? Your revenue? Your portfolio? Your tenants? If the answer is yes to at least one of those then it’s worth your while investing in property management software.
What system works best for you?
There are plenty of options out there, choosing the right one is important. Technology evolves quickly, what was cutting edge six months ago might be already dated.
