The software itself works great for it's intended purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Customer resolution is completely unresponsive. I have been trying to get an issue resolved and have had an active case open since October 2020. I have been told each time by customer success reps that "I can't believe no one has called you back yet, I will leave a message for the manager right now and you will get a call back today." I'm starting to believe that there are no managers! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I purchased the company from my broker. I have a new tax ID number and therefore need a new Appfolio account open and all of the accounts downloaded to the new company. Really confused why this is so difficult. I'm sure a different company would be happy to open a new account for me! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Is easy to use, most of the time is not neccesary to look a tutorial about how to use, also you can easily find the invoices in the portal. The good thing about Resman is the fast answer from the support and that you can get reports with the general accounting for property, one or more properties or you can use the GL number to get it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Sometimes get slow or doesnt work correctly, you have to wait a long time to save the changes. There is other error about the balances because sometimes resman delete them and if someone else want to check the balance is in 0. Some weeks ago we have an error with the properties, when you tried to change to a different property Resman returned the page to an especific property, if you dont realized about it, you enter transactions wrongly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you are going to use Resman for Purchase Orders, you have to only approved the POs that have a document to proceed with the register in the platform, also, as a tip in the reconciliation, you can show the future transactions choosing the chart. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We can use it to have a control about transactions daily, also is really helpful that someone can do new registers about invoices or deposits, the accounting books will show you the balance every property. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I like that it is easy and simple to use, it does everything I need it to and more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I wish there was a way to take one payment and split it between more than one property Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is a great quality product for the price, and the customer service is amazing, they are always willing to help. You can even have them build your properties in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It has made it easier to communicate with my owners and to let them have access to just their properties and to see reports that they will need for their taxes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Automated responses are a life saver! This system saves countless of hours a day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Inability to create custom messages that can be set to be sent at a custom time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I no longer need to schedule emails to be sent individually. Short codes help input variable information on the fly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I really enjoy the customizable dashboard where I can arrange it the way I need it and can see my workflow best. I like that it is fairly easy to start people through YOUR process, step by step to make them your renter...or not! Let's face it, there are some people that you want to make sure aren't on your list of headaches when it comes to filling a vacancy. The customer service is actually quite responsive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There needs to be more outlets for listing your properties. It is also still a little clunky setting up your units and using the 6 digit code that RentRedi assigns to your properties. The payment page could use some help to be clearer as to what's been paid and what hasn't. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Take the plunge, get started and because the company is so responsive you can help improve the software by giving them feedback! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am able to track payments in one place. I can upload documents to the unit I am renting. I can keep up with maintenance requests and make sure that team members know the status of those projects. I have not had a chance to use the e-signing feature yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I really like the text feature - communication with tenants, owners, and vendors is paramount to streamlining the work. As I learn more about it, it truly is an amazing tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is a bit clunky and crashes and I would like to be able to copy and paste text/phone numbers from the texting feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I definitely think Rent Manager is a vast program with a lot of functions I've yet to learn about. The more you learn and use it the better it becomes in helping streamline the work. The call-in help line is fantastic and has helped me figure out many different user errors. The functionality and the support are definitely reasons to consider this program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Learning how to set up project manager is great - with several properties due for inspections and license renewals, project manager has really helped group all those properties together for easier 'at a glance' updates. Really like the template manager as well - Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I like that we can pick and choose what attributes we need for our particular business. The staff was helpful in setting everything up for us and continues to be helpful with our questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There were two platforms (as Building Engines was updating) and it was confusing when trying to explain problems or help our tenants if they were having problems putting in work orders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Building Engines is primarily a work order system for my company. The biggest benefit is accountability - that is we now know when issues are assigned and who took care of the problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

YardI Voyager is very simple and easy to use. I previously worked with RealPage for 8 years. YardI makes every day tasks for property management more streamlined. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The only dislikes I have in regard to YardI would be having to go back and forth between pages to print work orders and see resident information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
YardI Voyager really helps me with collections. Being able to use the interface to connect to collections is super convenient! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The capabilities of this software are great! We can essentially run our entire rental business from this site! From accounting to marketing to maintenance. The reports are great as well! We are able to run tenant reports that show their individual transactions to help us understand their account. Tenants are also able to go online and make payments as well as submit maintenance tickets. These maintenance tickets are very easy for us to track and keep on top of. We have our maintenance team set up as a vendor so they only have limited access to any unnecessary information. The marketing aspect of Property Matrix is amazing! If you have pictures of your open units you can post to 7 different advertising websites including apartments.com and zillow, all with a click of a button! This helps cut down on my time to go to each site and manually post and update these. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Customer service could be more timely with their responses. They advertise custom reports but are not always eager to help you build them. We are currently working with them on customizing the online application to mirror what we have on paper. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Ask questions! When PM replies they are very helpful. Always willing to customize your site to your liking! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Property Matrix really helps keep me organized with our properties. I can stay on top of leases expiring and renewing them in a timely manner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
OwnerRez software is incredibly easy it is to integrate with a website. Thanks to this software, my guests can check availability, get quotes, book, and check reviews collected from several sights and right on my website. I've never had an issue with my website not performing correctly or with incorrect information being presented to my guests.
For those who are curious about what the guest interface looks like on a self-built website take a look at TheRedwoodRetreat.com. All dynamic information on this website is provided through and controlled by my OwnerRez account. I have only the most basic layman's knowledge of web design, software interface and computer technology in general, yet I was able to build my own website through which guests can book directly with me.
Beyond supporting website integration, OwnerRez has flexibility in almost all aspects of control, from rates and length of stay to seasonality and custom integrations with commercial booking sites such as Airbnb and VRBO. Their custom e-mail templates offer endless possibilities for creating great guest interactions, notifying third parties. I even use them to send myself reminders to give guests special offers when there are short gaps in my calendar.
OwnerRez is constantly making improvements to adapt to the ever-changing vacation rental marketplace. Their help articles and customer support are insightful and provide step-by-step processes for some of the more complicated aspects of set-up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There are still more features on OwnerRez than I actually use. This is not a 'con', but it is critically important to take the time to understand how you are supposed to do what you are trying to do when using OwnerRez. The vast flexibility of the program means there is plenty of room for user error. In most cases a warning will present if you create a clear conflict. But if you make an error in your rates and don't catch it, you may be giving a lucky guest a great deal without knowing it.
OwnerRez has done a great job of providing well written, easy to follow help articles. My technique for making sure I don't create problems for myself is to search the help archive for articles regarding what-ever it is I want to do and read them carefully before diving into my project.
There is one area I'd like to see improved: Currently the financial reports provide great information and flexibility. However, they have no way to capture the credit card processing fee's I pay through my merchant account. Providing an integration with merchant accounts which allows credit card processing fees to be captured would bring this area of reporting up to the outstanding standard OwnerRez has already set. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
A little over a year before VRBO was purchased by Expedia I had ventured into the vacation rental market with just one property. At that time 95% of my bookings came via VRBO, with the remaining 5% coming from Airbnb. The first year was very good. When ownership of VRBO transferred, my business dropped by nearly 70% and customer support became essentially non-existent. In my frustration with being subject to the whim of large corporations, I was determined to create a simple way for guests to book directly with me. I knew this would mean I needed a way to manage my calendar, present rates and allow online booking. For nearly a week I researched various vacation rental management platforms before deciding OwnerRez was the best fit.
OwnerRez was fantastic, they gave me all kinds of tips on how to build my website, how to set-up a merchant account and how to configure OwnerRez to accurately reflect my intentions. Since onboarding with them I have watched them continually improve their platform, adding more capabilities, simplifying processes and generally adapting to the evolving vacation rental marketplace. Through it all, their interface has remained about the same and their amazing customer support hasn't changed a bit.
Thanks to OwnerRez, my vacation rental is no longer dependent on large booking sites, though I do still take bookings via Airbnb and VRBO. More than 50% of my business comes directly through my website.
I cannot recommend OwnerRez highly enough! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is user friendly. Keeps everything organized and makes accounting easier. Customer service is amazing. They always fix any issues quickly and have the patience to explain. They answer very quickly to any request or question we might have. The reports they provide saves a lot of time when we need to send monthly reports to owners. Love the feature where we can set up automatic reminders to pay rent to tenants and notices as well. The feature they have that gives tenants the option to pay online is great too for us as property managers and also for the tenant's convenience.
I like that they are always looking for ways to make things easier to understand and work. They are always looking for improvement and their prices are very reasonable.
I also like the fact that is web-based so we are able to log in from anywhere at any time.
I like the email they sent every month showing the most profitable and the least profitable property in the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There is nothing I dislike about the system or customer service. Everything is great! We have been using them since they started and have had a very satisfying experience. They are really no downsides about using them. All we have experienced has been positive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We have no problems right now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Onsite is fantastic! From the Implementation team to the support team. Any issues that I eve have are always resolved within minutes! Their website is very user-friendly and makes any adjustments needed a breeze. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The only downfall I would say is the document design. I would love to be able to start out with a template and go from there instead of having to start from the ground up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Do it! It's amazin and the reports they have available come in handy! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We are able to implement new procedures and processes that make our day to day function so much easier as a team that is in multiple states. The Esign function is a lifesaver for our entire team and residents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
My needs are very limited as I manage only one single property yet the systems fulfills them to the largest extent possible. On top of this, the customer care is great - patient, helpful and kind.
What I value most is their willingness to bet their skin - if the system allows for a double-booking, they take the responsibility. What a committment! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I would love to see more customizing options for the calendar (which is then synchronized with my phone), such as setting alerts for incoming guests or guest-related events (deposits, refunds, etc). No big deal, of course! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The only objective I need Syncbnb for is preventing double booking of my property. This is performed optimally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Easy to learn, easy to navigate, easy to use...what's not to love about BuildingLink. The database we used prior to BuildingLink left us asking "I wish there was software that could...." questions. Today, all of our resident management concerns are met with this one peice of software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There are one or two features that could be easier accessed with one click instead of two...maybe the ability to customize a shortcut menu; also pop-up or blinking reminders. Other than that, it does everything well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Payments take a while unless you pay extra Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
They just make you pay to get your money early.
It’s easy to use though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Price point is unbeatable. $9/month and free ACH payments. This made it cost effective for me to manage my 4 family unit with a platform instead of going through check or zelle. The intuitive nature of the platform makes it easy to setup and manage your tenants and leases and issue invoices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
somewhat of a process to for tenants and landlords to setup their ACH mechanisms. Of course that leads to better faith in the security of the process. But perhaps use a middleware banking API for people to verify their banking information to speed up the authentication process. This is a minor issue, as all my tenants have successfully setup their ACH payments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I came to AirGMS first to be able to share calendar information with our housekeeping people, after having issues with google calendar.

It seems that the calendar is working well--I'm still going back and forth to the Airbnb app, but I think that will lessen over time. I'm still checking in with the cleaning people by text to make sure they are on top of it, but once I know they are checking as they should I can ease up.
I know this app will be a great help as we expand our listings to other rental agencies! As soon as I feel things are running smoothly I will explore those options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There really is not much to like as a tenant. It's difficult to use, relies on the property manager to enter information (in my case, lease was redone in the system 3 times due to errors). Payment algorithm does not allow for cut/paste so potential errors with bank drafts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Just not a system that is tenant friendly. Was designed largely for small apartment complexes with limited staff. But because there are so many bugs in the system, it leads to even more work. Definitely not worth it! Their help desk is a joke. You can open a case, but they will not follow-up on it. Once a tenant in an area looks at one apartment, his/her information is shared with other apartments that use the Rent Cafe system - that is both wrong and illegal. Just don't waste your time on this system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
System is meant to streamline leasing management but does not do that -- adds hours and hours of work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Realpage unifies many different functions/aspects of our business and as a web-based system makes accessibility and rollout fairly easy. Training new employees in the system is fairly straightforward and although the learning curve can be overwhelming at first they catch on quickly. When things work, they work well, and it is nice to have documentation filed so neatly and so easily accessible across the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The migration from Windows 7 (Internet Explorer only!) into modern browsers and W10 has been rocky, slow, and many functions still aren't working correctly outside of Internet Explorer, which is increasingly becoming a security issue (as well as a compatibility issue). There are also frequent outages and end users aren't aware, so the IT Department ends up fielding a lot of tickets only to tell end users that there's an outage. Communication could be better. Tier 1 support often gives end users completely incorrect information and results in more work for us (and them) down the road. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I think the platform is good and heading in the right direction, but I think their company structure probably needs revision, better support teams (esp t1) and if you adopt Realpage you'll need to be prepared for a lot of things to not work as expected right away. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
RealPage makes it so new equipment rollout is largely a non-issue and users are able to pick back up almost immediately. Once they learn the system, it works across all our portfolio. The new Unified Login is also a smoother experience--when it works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
