Technology is changing quickly these days, and most of us are learning how to put it to good use in our professional and personal lives. At Capstone Realty, we know that technology is an important part of delivering efficient and effective property management in Winston-Salem.
Whether you’re managing your own rental home or looking for a professional management company, make sure you incorporate technology into the way you lease, manage, and maintain your property. A good property manager will invest in industry-specific software and up-to-date technology. Don’t waste your time with a company that’s still mailing out paper checks and keeping track of your property’s income and expenses on a legal pad.
We are committed to helping our owners understand that technology is an important part of the way we work. As all of us have learned from the recent COVID-19 pandemic, being flexible and adaptable is critical to business success. We are good at staying ahead of the curve, and that means investing in the best tech that’s available.
Leasing and Screening Systems Benefits from Technology
When it comes to marketing your property, online advertising will deliver the most reliable results. You’ll want to develop a sharp online ad with great photos and detailed descriptions. Then, you’ll want to get that listing onto all the popular rental websites that tenants are using to find a home. This will require a lot of your time and energy unless you’re able to syndicate that listing across multiple networks. We have that capability, and it means getting your vacant property in front of more tenants faster.
We also use technology to screen tenants thoroughly and consistently. It’s important to have access to national eviction and criminal records, and our online tools and digital screening resources help us access as much background information as possible.
Managing Rental Property Maintenance with Technology
We work with vendors and contractors who are professional, licensed, insured, and experienced. We look for cost-effective solutions to manage your repairs. Our ability to respond quickly to routine and emergency maintenance is due to the way we use technology.
Scheduling maintenance is easy for our residents because unless it’s an emergency, they simply have to log onto their portal and make the request. We have been able to automate the way we schedule work and assign vendors. Tenants and vendors are able to coordinate a good time to get the repair done, and our property managers don’t have to waste entire days coordinating the work. Our online platform has been a huge benefit when it comes to keeping maintenance costs down and our responses timely.
Online Portals for Winston-Salem Tenants and Owners
Our commitment to communication is made easier with our technology. Online systems and portals provide more accountability and transparency. We’re able to respond to tenants and owners with questions, and we offer many different ways for you to get in touch with us.
One of the most popular technologies we have is an online portal. Our tenants use their portals to pay rent on time, schedule maintenance requests, and send us messages. We are able to collect rent more efficiently, and tenants are less likely to pay late when they can schedule payments in advance or set up recurring withdrawals from their bank accounts.
Owners also benefit from our portals because you can see all of the accounting associated with your property. You’ll see income and expenses and you can follow maintenance invoices and see when rent was paid. You can also access inspection reports and ask us to run detailed statements or print off tax forms.
We manage your Winston-Salem rental property cost-effectively because of technology. If you’d like to talk more about the benefits it provides, we welcome you to contact us at Capstone Realty.
