It’s that time of year when we dive into and talk about all the relevant tech and software solutions that should be on your radar. With innovations around every corner, not every shiny new object will make sense for your rental property investment business. But these tools are worth a look and can at least inspire you to find more ways to streamline how you manage your renters, oversee your rental property, and grow your investment portfolio.
1. Listing Platforms
If you’re still chasing down one posting at a time, typing up property descriptions, and trying to keep track of which ads are generating the most interest, you’re headed for surefire burnout. Look for different methods for mass-listing management, like the system we use at PMI JCM Realty Group. Imagine drafting one compelling listing, assembling images and videos, then, in one action, having your listing show up across countless rental platforms at once. Ask us how!
2. Automations for Everything
From automated showings with tools like Rently to automated tenant outreach and vendor management, if there’s a process you can automate, do it! Start exploring the various solutions that help you seamlessly send email reminders, book showings, schedule contractors, and follow up on leads. You can even find the automation and digital methods for key management!
3. Virtual 3D Tours
There is a slew of new video-based tech available now with 3D tours and virtual tours capabilities. And many are incredibly user-friendly for the not-so-tech-savvy. Share the best features of your property and allow potential renters to explore it for themselves without ever leaving their couches. These types of software solutions, like NodalView, will also send a message that you’re a modern property manager, embracing technology and caring about your tenants and property.
4. Smart Home Upgrades
Don’t just focus on operational innovations. Start exploring all the fun and attractive ways to make your rental property a smart home! New tenants love simple upgrades like digital or smart thermostats. But they’ll love the big adds, too, including doorstep camera systems and smart appliances. Mobile-controlled lighting, door locks, and security systems are a great investment for you and an appealing feature for renters, as well. You don’t have to update everything all at once. Instead, make smaller improvements over time and then market those upgrades with your listings and advertising.
5. Wellness Apps for Property Owners
Another trend for 2023 is self-care and wellness initiatives. Being a rental property investor can be stressful, especially if you’re still trying to do it all on your own. So, consider exploring all the apps and wellness tools for healthier habits and relieving stress. Start prioritizing your health and wellness in 2023 and start adopting whatever tools you need to keep yourself energized and 100%.
