What is Avail?

Avail is a rental property management system for landlords which offers tools for finding tenants, advertising property vacancies, pre-screening applicants, carrying out credit history checks, processing payments, signing lease contracts, and more. The cloud-based platform is designed for landlords with less than 10 units, but users are able to add additional properties for an additional fee. Avail helps landlords to advertise their vacant units, request rental applications and credit reports, sign leases, and collect rent, all online from one platform.

Key benefits of using Avail

• Learn more about potential tenants with the ability to request renter profiles, credit checks, criminal background checks, eviction reports, and more.

• Generate custom documents for leases and contracts and utilize Avail’s pre-built, state-specific lease templates.

• Manage rent and security deposit payments within the Avail platform which facilitates electronic payments.

• Allow tenants to report maintenance issues with images and comments, and schedule repairs within the Avail platform.

Pros
Avail is a great option for listing, leasing and rent collection, which is a HUGE help. It's not perfect but for the price I think it's the best option right now.
The features it has work well and they have a more solid foundation in there product than any of the other offerings I explored. Avail has a great product in what feels like a budding market.
Customer service has been friendly and effective. I continue to use the software and hope to expand my rental portfolio using this software.
Cons
I worry that when I respond to a rental inquiry using the web platform my response is landing in junk or spam mail, but no way to confirm that I'm aware of.
And navigating what payments have come thru. I hate having to wait to get paid in a few days.
No app yet and communication Via email to applicants was a bit confusing.

Great for starting out

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Love avail for starting out as a smaller property management company; makes us feel like big company.

Cons

Could use better mobile support or app features.

Vendor response

Hi Nathan! Robert here. I'm one of Avail's Community Managers, and I wanted to follow-up to say thank you for being a valued Avail user (and thank you so much for the honest review). Several landlords have reached out about this (having a mobile app), and while I can say that a mobile app is on our roadmap in the coming months, I don't have an exact date for that yet. This said you can easily...

Great software for starting out

Reviewed 4 years ago

As a family investing in multi-family properties we're wanting to manage them ourselves but we're also starting from scratch. Avail is a great option for listing, leasing and rent collection, which is a HUGE help. It's not perfect but for the price I think it's the best option right now. I'd recommend for anyone with small portfolios or just starting out.

Pros

The software is great about streamlining processes. It takes something like listing the property, which could take hours to post to individual sites like Zillow, Apartments.com etc, and lets you post in a matter or minutes.

Cons

The software can sometimes feel like a hammer when you need a scalpel. When you post your listings the software will scrub out anything that looks like contact information. I assume this is because they want all the communication captive in the system. This is in theory but it forces us to use clunky lines of communication while simultaneously trying to make a first impression with prospective tenants. There are enough examples of how that manifests itself that my newest tenant just moved in and isn't exactly thrilled when I tell her we have use Avail for certain operations.

Vendor response

Hi Christopher, Robert here I'm a Community Manager with Avail. On behalf of the team, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the thoughtful feedback! We really do appreciate hearing from valued product users like yourself. Furthermore, I did want to also sincerely apologize for any issues that you might be running into in terms of the platform not being as fluid as you'd have hoped/being...

Too many basic tech 101 errors not caught and explained to users. just generic error messages.

Reviewed 3 years ago

See Cons. Stress imposed and the need to share extremely sensitive documents by email to get around the system and multiple phone calls for each application and to each party is an extremely poor experience, Lost opportunities, and put our personal information at risk, all with zero outcome and benefit.

Pros

ez to launch. that is it. wish I could say more the review requires more letters so am just typing more.

Cons

1) poor attention to catching user errors and explaining the problem to fix so user can proceed. 2) lack of awareness of use cases that real life users experience. Seems you cant live at same address 2x in past, cant own an address other than your current address. cant have prior rent be 0 (at least give a warning for that, (ie if you owned it).. and anyone without a credit rating will get stuck with...

Amazing site for landlords

Reviewed 2 years ago

Love it.it is free and gives my listing more exposure

Pros

Free to use.auto populates 12 other sites, so get more leads as landlord. One stop shop does credit and eviction report.

Cons

Hiding the apt number, so people don't knock on an occupied property

Vendor response

Hi Tamara, thank you so much for putting time into this honest review. We genuinely appreciate your feedback and are happy that Avail has been able to help with making your rental property management process easier. We've also gotten this point of feedback before about being able to hide the apartment number, though listing syndication to partner sites makes it so that the exact address has to be provided. That said, it is a fair point to make and I will be sure to provide this point of feedback to the team to keep it in mind for future considerations. Thank you so much and please let me know if there's anything else we can assist with. Kind regards, Robert B. - Community Manager @ Avail.co

Keeps your home rentals organized

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The following are not in any order of importance. (They are all important>) * Lease signing (paperless) * Can customize your lease using state specific template * Avail reminds tenants when rent is due. My rent is paid on time by my tenants and I dont have to do anything. * Tenants pay rent using ACH transactions * Listing your available rentals is easy * Prospective tenants complet rental...

Cons

The state specific lease for my state (Florida) was pretty basic and had some typos. I have spent a lot of time improving the lease for my requirements. But it is easy to edit and make changes. Once you do your first lease, you can clone it for your other properties.

Vendor response

Hi Eric, Thank you so much for the glowing review. I can't begin to thank you enough! For many landlords out there who have a lot of questions and might be hesitating to join Avail, feedback like yours makes it clear why they should. Feedback like yours makes it possible for us to make the necessary improvements; my email is robert@avail.co; in addition to some simple lease fixes, please feel...
