Property Management Software – So What

 January 10, 2017

By  Guy Gray

So you’ve amassed a portfolio of diverse properties, spending money, time and effort researching just how to invest into the real estate field.  From the best locations to up-and-coming markets and trends in property usage you’ve taken a balanced approach which you anticipate being a long-term revenue generating machine.  Now all you have to do is sit back and watch the profits roll in.  Not so fast…

Hidden Costs and Liabilities

Maintaining a real estate portfolio can be a time-consuming process and a liability pitfall, both of which equal hidden costs lurking in wait.  When was property ‘A’ last inspected for safety concerns or is property ‘B’ undervalued for the market?  While individual owners can be overwhelmed with the minutia, high-tech property management software has evolved to make these concerns a thing of the past.  With software solutions such as those offered by Quarem, property owners and their support staff have access to vital information and statistics on individual properties or portfolio-wide snap shots, all delivered to the user on the electronic devices they use every day.

Property owners should never be left rifling though reams of paper or searching random computer files to find the information they need on any given property.  Likewise, comparing individual properties or processing multiple streams of information in order to analyze your entire real estate position can seem overwhelming if the data isn’t properly cataloged and stored in an intuitive, easy-to-access manner.  Software technology solutions can assist with these tasks and many more, freeing up more of your time for management and growth.  The need for property management software may seem obvious at this time, but with all the products available on the market how do you know which is right for you?

Which Solution is Right for My Portfolio?

While many companies offer individual services such as lease abstracting or rental property management, it can be difficult to find a partner that meets your specific portfolio needs in a field dominated by one-size-fits-all mediocrity.  Likewise, out-of-the-box property management solutions can be generic, difficult to implement and still require a great deal of time and setup in order to function properly.

A complete property management software is customizable and dynamic, built around the needs of your investments and your particular company with real-life support there to help walk you through the process.  The best vendors in this arena, such as Quarem, will not only provide, install and integrate your software solution, we’ll  also provide valuable services such as initial input of data and lease abstracting, just to name a few.  Effective property management software solutions requires trained professionals that understand your business and needs and want to work with you to help streamline your day-to-day operations.

You’re choosing a partner when you decide on a property management solution.

Well Worth the Investment

Property owners agree.  When it comes to managing complicated real estate portfolios, property management software is well worth the investment.  Time savings alone can justify acquiring the function and expertise of a great real estate software program.  Where owners will see real dividends, though, is in the ability to focus on growing their real estate empire, spending their time making revenue generating decisions rather than mired down in the muck of keeping up with individual contract terms and clauses.  This year, resolve to grow your portfolio with a no hassle quote from a quality real estate property management software provider such as Quarem.
