The best apps for property managers

by Reporter 6 comments

Last week we asked about the most vital apps in your phones and discovered a few hidden gems along with some old favourites.

Below are some of the less obvious choices that might send you off to the app store…

“The Australian Red Cross – a great resource for small or serious mishaps. Right there on the phone are the instructions on what to do, from bee sting to heart attack.” – Toni Planinsek

“GQueues – great for a to-do list that is a Google Chrome extension, which syncs to my phone and iPad.” – Darren Hunter

“Stay Safe – it is the absolute best app to assist with the safety of lone workers. A must for everyone in the real estate industry.” – Jo-Anne Oliveri

Several of you mentioned Google Maps, which has basically made street directories obsolete and given us readily available GPS navigation for any location in the world.

The only industry-specific app mentioned was b4realestate.com.au, which is an online platform that connects agents and buyers in real time.

In a previous Residential Property Manager case study, we asked a few industry leaders about their favourite apps and came up with some more interesting results.

“All of our routine inspections are done via the Rentfind app. It syncs with our PM software REST and provides an easy-to-read report for our lessors.” – Laura Levisohn

“For those looking for apps to make life easier in the office, I love Jing and Snagit, which provide a great solution for on-screen demo videos – perfect for personalising presentations to clients, answering long emails and, most importantly, providing training videos for the team. If you are on the latest version of Office, OneNote is amazing for notes while you are out and about on your phone or iPad, which then sync when you are back on deck.” – Amy Sanderson

“Inspect Real Estate and IRE BDM have proved beneficial to our new business and leasing managers, facilitating inspection bookings and automating data entry. Rentfind's inspection application has proven invaluable and a great time-saver for property managers.” – Sara Young
