How Technology Can Help You Manage Your Rental Property More Efficiently - Article Banner

It’s hard to run a successful business without adopting the latest and best technology that’s available. 

Your rental property is a business, and you can lease, manage, and maintain that business more efficiently when you leverage the technology that’s available. 

At Oceans Managing Group, we’re taking care of rental properties in Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, and across Volusia County. We’ve invested in some of the most innovative tools and platforms that area available. It keeps costs down for our owners and it allows us to get more done on behalf of you, your property, and your tenants. 

Here’s why and how technology makes such a difference. 

Lower Vacancy and Higher Rents with Leasing Technology

Access to technology is especially valuable during the leasing process. When you have the right tools in place, you can reduce the length of your vacancy and accurately price your rental home. To market your home effectively, you’ll need to share your listing on dozens or even hundreds of rental sites. Online scheduling software allows for seamless showings and the submission of applications.  

Self-showings require good technology, and they’ve become hugely popular among tenants. Potential residents want to see potential homes on their own time, and without anyone else present. Lockbox technology and smart locks allow you to safely give access to your property when prospects want to get inside. This speeds up the leasing process as well and leads to a better flow from showing to application to lease signing.

Documented Inspections and Maintenance 

Always ask for routine repair requests in writing. This increases the chances that your tenants will notify you of those repairs as soon as the issue is detected. Written maintenance requests also protect the condition of your home and allow for a more preventative approach, cutting down on expensive and unexpected emergencies. 

Consistent Rent Collection and Technology

Rent is more likely to be paid on time when you allow for online payments. If you allow your residents to pay rent electronically, you’ll have a more consistent rent collection process. They’ll also appreciate the ease with which they can pay rent and track their accounts. 

How We Work with Technology at Oceans Managing Group

Work with TechnologyWe know technology works because we’ve seen how it makes everything more accurate, automated, and transparent. We use Appfolio for all our listings, and that allows us to syndicate your listing to multiple rental sites online. It also helps us track responses and keep showings organized and responsive. 

Our owner and tenant portals online provide a number of benefits, including: 

  • Online rental payments are collected from tenants. 
  • Rent money is directly deposited into owners’ bank accounts. 
  • Maintenance requests are conveniently submitted and documented online.
  • Owners can log in to see those maintenance requests, view invoices, and follow the income and expenses associated with their rental property. 

When you choose to work with a property management company that already has phenomenal technology in place, you don’t have to figure out how to make it work for you and your property. The processes and systems are already available, and there’s nothing required of you when it comes to implementation and evaluation. Our platform makes marketing, screening, leasing, and maintenance efficient and easy.
