If you're an independent vendor looking for more business, Doorstead may be your perfect property management partner. We are a leading proptech company operating in many markets in California and recently expanded to Seattle, Washington. We are always looking to partner with passionate and expert vendors. This blog post will outline the process of applying to become a Doorstead-partnered vendor, the benefits of partnering with us, and whom to contact with questions. If you already know you'd be a great independent contractor on Doorstead's team, you can start the online application process now:

Why partner with Doorstead as a vendor?

Doorstead is one of the fastest-growing property managers in the U.S. We are leveraging big data and operations technology to transform the $50B+ property management industry. We're pioneering a new class of lower-risk property management by providing landlords with guaranteed rental income, regardless of occupancy.

Doorstead vendor network includes large and small companies of all trades (e.g., handypersons, general contractors, HVAC, electricians, plumbers, house cleaners, and more) who grow their business as we grow.

Our vendor network is critical to our success, and having great relationships with vendors who share our vision for property management benefits all parties.

What are the benefits of becoming a Doorstead vendor?

  • Get paid quicker Payment after completion of work is paid within 7-10 days through Most servicing and property management payment terms are 30-45 days (Net 30) after the completion of a project.
  • Consistent work As we grow and add properties to our portfolio, projects become more consistent and provide our vendors with a steady flow of jobs. In San Francisco, for example, our vendors currently complete over 30 property turns and 600 maintenance requests monthly.
  • Make more money. Supplement your income with additional property renovation and maintenance work by becoming a vendor for Doorstead. We typically pay at above-market rates and payout faster.
  • Grow with us. If vendors do a great job, homeowners typically refer them to their friends and networks. The better vendors do, the more work they get in the area. We are currently and rapidly expanding throughout the country, allowing you to expand your workforce locally, grow your business to new clients, and enter new markets. 
  • Responsive vendor support team. Our vendor support team is incredibly supportive and wants to help you consistently succeed in your business. They are your go-to on questions about invoices and work order requests received from project managers. Our vendor support team is consistent and very responsive, so someone is always available to advise, answer questions promptly, and provide general guidance.
  • Vendor tools. We've built internal tools that vendors can easily access on their desktops or mobile phones. We launched a new estimate tool for work orders, making it easier for vendors to submit estimates to our homes team for approval. Estimates are approved by project managers in typically 24-48 hours.
