In this economy, just about everyone could use a little supplementary income. But when it comes to renting out a second home as a way to make a little cash on the side, the headaches associated with becoming a landlord usually outweigh the benefit of bringing in a couple extra dollars each month. That is, until now. RentalBooks is a great new application that makes it easy for just about anyone to manage properties and keep their tenants happy – whether they’re renting out one home or 100 units.
Select a plan based on how many units you have to rent out, then start the process of creating a RentalBooks account by inputting all of your personal details. Enter information about each property you’re planning on renting, including the unit number and pricing information. As new tenants come in, you can store their signed leases, background checks, and other personal information within the RentalBooks system; letting you rest assured that these contracts won’t get lost in the pile of paperwork sitting on your desk. Not only does RentalBooks help with record keeping, but it also offers a number of bookkeeping tools to help landlords keep track of income and expenses online.
When a new tenant moves into a property being managed by a landlord with RentalBooks, he can be given his own login information – granting tenants the ability to see when their payments are due and when they have been received. Overall, RentalBooks is a fun new app that can keep people organized and help lessen the load for landlords who manage properties of all sizes.
