Pros

The Help Center is wonderful. Any time I have to call I get good response and answers to my questions.
Getting better over time, but the best of the bread so far. Hope they can maintain their competitive pricing and rapid development and not let it reverse like their competitors.
It has been a fantastic experience, many of my colleagues have switched to AppFolio and are as excited as I am to see what they add next, as they are always improving their product.

Pros

Customer Supports are very supportive and helpful. They provide exceptional customer service.
Great residential portal, user friendly for tenants and landlords, maintenance request tracking helpful.
The software is well designed and very powerful. It has the ability to change how a business managers its properties.

Cons

I hate change and had built a cumulative system of various software's to support our business. The idea of dumping all that into one system was scary and took some adjustment.
We have had new clients furious with us homes did not get listed or shown due to appfolio changes without warning. It really has gone from a 9 to about a 6 overall in the last year and a half.
Example, you can now email tenants/owners from their page. If the email does not go through there is no notification so we are unaware that tenants/owners did not receive our communication.

Cons

The messages section is confusing as there are too many options depending on where it’s come from. Adding a guarantor to a lease is far too complicated.
Little room for human error. These are all of the cons I have for this time regarding the Property Vista software.
I dont like the fact that i am the only person to close a request.
