If you are using great software like Check Point’s handy Landlord Dashboard, you may be able to handle more rentals more effectively than with old-fashioned paper-and-pencil methods. Why? Because software helps you organize and handle large amounts of information in a short amount of time.
However, finding the right software is not always easy. You must think about what you want to do with your software in order to choose the right programs for your needs.
What Can Software Do For My Rental Business?
The right software can work wonders for your business. The Check Point suite allows you to handle several important aspects of your rental property management business, including:
- Online applications. You can place an easy-to-use icon on your website that will take potential tenants directly to your online application. There, the tenants can fill out all the information and even make an application fee payment online. Once the fee is paid, you are notified to process the application. Best of all, the information entered on the application form
- Background screening for tenants. When you take on a new tenant, it is important to know as much as possible about the person. Check Point can give you reliable background check reporting on credit history and score, rental and eviction record, criminal background data including sex offender status, social security status, driving record and other important information.
- Online lease generation. You can quickly generate a customized lease with the help of Check Point’s unique features. Using the information that tenants have entered, Check Point can generate a lease that deals with all the particulars set forth by you. You can customize your lease forms to include all sorts of important details such as parking arrangements, pet policies and other important information along with the regular issues surrounding leases such as rental and deposit payment amounts.
How Can Evaluate Software?
You can find the right software by thinking about the tasks you normally do as a landlord and which ones are taking the most of your time. Do you have a need for accounting software? What about data or word processing programs? Do you need a set of programs to manage your information in a database format?
You can evaluate most software in light of your current needs, but it also helps to find a trial version that you can experiment with before purchasing a program.
Check Point is dedicated to providing you with the background checks and services you need to keep your rental management simple and profitable.
