Property Management App

Property Management App

Having the right Property Management software to manage your Los Gatos rentals might just be the only missing piece in your arsenal to improve your ROI.  One such app is Happy Inspector for iPhone/iPad and Android Smart Phones.   We reviewed the iPad version of this app which offers:

1) Property Overview:  This feature allows your Los Gatos Property Managers to input Owner, Agent, and Tenant information into the application which is a neat offering specially if you are managing multiple properties in the same complex.

2) Inspection Generator:  This feature offers property managers to generate customize inspection sheet for each room in a property based on the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, garage, and utility rooms.  The neat part about this feature is that the property manager can also incorporate photos of these inspections that can then be used for generating repair estimates and communicating them with property owners.  The Inspection Generator offers tabs for Move In/Out Reports and Periodic Report Settings that should be a delight to property owners.   

We also like the Reminder section of the app for future inspections such as a Beware of Dogs, Cats…etc to make sure your inspector will not be blamed for a missing  pet. 

The iPad version is being updated routinely with the last update on July 11, 2013 which is good indicator of the developers commitment to add new features.  The FREE version of the app is for ONE User only but the Pro Version is priced at $59/month per device which is an unusual pricing model since ONE property manager would have to pay TWICE for using the same app on his iPad or iPhone!  The company is also working on a Cloud version of the application which was not priced on their website.

 This app offers some neat features but we can’t justify the paid version due to the strange pricing model where each device requires a $59 per month payment.

Would having a simple property management app help you?!!  Are you using any apps right now to manage your properties!?  Share your experience!
