Top Tech Tools Every Rental Property Investor Should Know

West Lake Hills Real Estate Investor at a LaptopAs technology continues to advance, the business of investing in West Lake Hills rental real estate evolves with it. Although some landlords may cling to traditional tactics of doing things, it is significantly more lucrative and efficient for many rental property investors to utilize one or more of today’s top tech tools for real estate.

There are so many innovative tech tools available that you could easily optimize every aspect of buying and owning single-family rental homes. From property searches to leasing and all that, these are a few of the tech tools that real estate investors of all kinds must be aware of.

A.I. Real Estate Apps

Laborious property searches are a thing of the past when you use machine-learning real estate search applications. Based on artificial intelligence (A.I.) principles, these real estate apps offer users customized recommendations based on their interests and past searches. One of the most widely used apps, Compass, is used by over 14,000 real estate agents to find and sell properties nationwide.

Data Analysis

One more useful tech tool for rental property investors is data analytical tools. These tools will collect data on several levels, from national trends to your local market to each rental property you own. With this intelligence, you can make better judgments and, at the same time, track emerging patterns to help you determine where to go for your future lucrative investment.

Social Media

You are missing an opportunity if you have not already harnessed the power of social media to help you find, buy, and manage your rental properties. You can market your properties using multiple social media platforms, interact with other rental property owners and sellers, and build an online presence and reputation. These are all major components of establishing a profitable real estate portfolio.

Virtual Tours

Make and give virtual tours online to remove one of the most time-consuming parts of leasing rental properties. Young adult renters, particularly, have learned to expect to see virtual tours and other detailed information about a rental home long before they ever step foot in the door. A short, unfiltered video tour of your rental property may assist you in minimizing your pool of applicants and streamline the task of seeking your next quality tenant.

Smart Locks, Keyless Entry, Video Monitoring

Smart technologies like smart locks and keyless entry systems to video doorbells are becoming more popular in single-family rental homes. Many tenants are impressed with the security that these devices provide; they also provide property owners with an effective tool to control access to the property and keep it under control.

Process Management

Probably the most critical tech tool that every West Lake Hills property manager needs is convenient, online process management software. These programs can help modernize a wide range of necessary tasks, such as exchanging documents to collecting rent payments, communicating with tenants, and tracking maintenance requests. While a few different process management software programs are available, most come at a hefty price.
