It's no secret that automated technoalogy has profoundly impacted virtually every industry. The property management industry is no exception. At Doorstead, we embrace automation and technology in our mission and values to bring better products and services to our homeowners and renters.

Here we will look at how automation trends have impacted the property management landscape in recent years and how you can understand and keep up with these changes.

How automation is changing the property management industry

Proptech (property technology) is revolutionizing the property management industry by streamlining and automating many day-to-day tasks involved in managing properties, such as finding tenants and collecting rent. Embracing automation equips property managers to manage their properties effectively, leading to improved returns on investment for homeowners and a better experience for renters.

 Automated has impacted property management through optimized pricing and transactions, faster and consistent communications, and remote management.

Automated pricing and transactions

Automated pricing is an important way automation technology has changed property management. Automated pricing makes it easier to price rental units competitively. Automated pricing systems are becoming more common, as they help to take the guesswork out of setting rent, leading to more consistent and sustainable rental income. For example, Doorstead utilizes machine learning and millions of data points to find the optimal renting price for each property. Incorporating big data gives homeowners a broader and more realistic view of their property against the local and national market.

In addition to automated pricing, technology has also enabled more streamlined payment collections. For example, automating online rental payments for tenants reduces issues and errors in transactions encourages timely rental payments, and provides real-time payment alerts. In addition, automation simplifies accounting: bookkeeping and accounting tasks are carried out automatically without your active involvement. That means less time spent on spreadsheets and going through and manually organizing your transactions and payments.

Real-Time Communication

Proptech significantly improves communication by introducing online channels. Property managers can automatically handle repairs and maintenance requests: tenant-generated communications and automated responses are sent out 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Tenants can now use apps to quickly communicate with their landlords and property managers in a low-effort manner. Companies or individuals can build automated communication and ticketing systems to address common issues and questions. An added benefit of automated property management is creating consistency in communications: Renters and homeowners can learn the system and follow the automatic procedure for better synchronization and communication, which helps to avoid service delays and complaints.

Remote Management

Technology and automation make it easier for homeowners and property managers to manage their properties remotely. Even better, mobile and cloud-based software systems allow property managers to stay connected to their tenants and properties anytime, anywhere. For example, Doorstead's platform will enable landlords to track rental payments in real-time, view tenant profiles, and more from their smartphones. 

Services like Doorstead provide landlords with automated solutions that make managing a rental easy and efficient. Landlords can now access important information about their properties anytime, anywhere in the world. Property owners can use online platforms to rent their properties with minimal effort. Technology is also making it easier for renters to find rentals online. Tenants can now browse a variety of properties online and apply directly through websites or apps and see realistic, 3D representations of the space without stepping foot into the property. By utilizing technology-based services and solutions like Doorstead, property managers can spend less time on the day-to-day management of their properties and more time enjoying the passive income they generate.

By leveraging automation trends in property management, property managers can achieve greater success in a challenging market.
