It’s good for beginners

The Good…

i’ve been using Rentec for around 4 months and the only thing I like is the ease of use during the accounting. Everything else is way critical

The Bad…

Starting with customer support, they have literally made everything else complicated to access

Check out their free trial, it’s a great way to see if it’s for you. The pricing is very simple to understand.

They are a fun growing company and I think most people would enjoy working with them. They have my highest recommendation for a property management software.

This is the best property management program that I’ve found that is free. Down the road they’ll have a pro version but I’m talking about the free version.

I’ve gone through 20-30 property management programs from using them to reviewing them. Something I really love is the homepage. It shows a glance of what your business is doing such as your occupancy rate and income and expenses.

For what it is, it has a very clean easy format and is easy to use. If you’re looking for a property management software for between 1-20 units, this software is great. If you have over 20 you might want to look at something else.
