Beaver overview

What is Beaver ?

Beaver is an all-in-one rent collection, vendor payment, and bookkeeping software for landlords and property managers with 1-100 properties. Replacing Excel or Quickbooks, Beaver consolidates all property financial data within one central platform allowing real-estate property managers to collect rent, make payments to vendors, and manage all vendor/tenant transactions in one place.

With Beaver, online rent collection and vendor payment transactions feed automatically into the bookkeeping system, eliminating the need to manually re-enter data or double-track rent roll. Beaver integrates with Plaid and Checkbook to import transactions from any bank or credit card and implement online payment processing for rent and vendor payments.

Property managers can also easily submit ACH payments for any vendor invoice using only the vendor email. Unlike other software, Beaver allows users to assign transactions among multiple properties and easily create Profit & Loss statements unique to each property.

Best fit for my real estate business. Best UX from rent collection to bookkeeping

Used daily for less than 6 months

I love Beaver. I am happy overall. It completes what I want to do in one app.

Pros
Great helped me set up my real estate portfolio very easily. They are best at streamlining work from rent collection and expense payments to bookkeeping. I can access the information when I want. All the features are very user-friendly. They have a help center so it was helpful as well. I had no accounting knowledge but I could start managing my properties right away.

Cons
I understand that I can just text my tenants but it will be great if they create a tenant portal for work orders and those are connected to accounting information.

Very satisfied. They have excellent functionality / ease of use for rent collection, accounting and other record keeping. It will be great if they could add some analytics in the future but so far so good.

Pros
The best thing about Beaver is the customer support. When I have questions, I email them and the response is very fast and the answers are always very clear. The software is very easy to use but from time to time you still have questions. I tried some of the free softwares in the industry but their customer service was horrible.

Cons
At the moment, there are no analytical features. The accounting / record-keeping part is excellent but at some point I may want to see some more analytics - for example, to compare my properties' performance vs the market.

Real estate accounting software and rent collection software all together

Used occasionally for 6-12 months

Overall, I like it. For my operation, Beaver is good enough and pricing point is very reasonable for their powerful features.

Pros
The best part of Beaver is that I can do both collect rent online and bookkeeping for the rent I collected. Most of softwares miss something. You end up needing two softwares. App folio covers a broad spectrum of features but they are very expensive and their accounting feature is still not strong enough compared to Beaver.

Cons
Vendor payment feature is great but you can’t schedule your payment. It goes out right away. It will be better if I can schedule the date to make future payment.

Beaver is like a tool box. Useful tools in a compact box.

I am happy with what they have for now. If my portfolio grows a lot more, I might need something else, but Beaver is all I need for now.

Pros
I like Beaver because it provides features I need in a simple manner. Other property management software has so many features but they do not have proper accounting features. Beaver does not have features for tenant management such as work orders or maintenance requests, but that was not something I was looking for, so it was okay that Beaver didn't have them. I was looking for software that lets me collect rent online and pay some invoices to vendors within the app with easy bookkeeping. Beaver has built these features very well.

Cons
Maybe they can do a better job on reporting features. Currently, the reporting is only financial statements. Monthly reporting for simple income and expenses may be useful for owners.

I think its great overall. I can see the improvement every month so I feel satisfied.

Pros
I like Beaver because it has full fledged accounting features like balance sheet and general ledger. I like to do analysis on my properties. General ledger helps a lot. Also I love that it has document storage at property level. I can download documents from Beaver when I need them. Recently they released the dashboard. Its great because you can see performance right at the first page.

Cons
There is not enough analytical features. I would like to have more metrics like rent by sqf and stuff.
