Pros

Buildium has great people backing it up. Everyone I have spoken to from implementation to customer service requests has been very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our clients like the reports better than a previous software we used. Customer service and online help are outstanding.
Overall, this is an excellent product at a great value. Customer support is very responsive.

Pros

I like to ability to define unused fields and create custom attribute queries. The support team does a great job of helping with issues.
Overall Yardi Voyager is a great product, super robust with tons of features. It's an all-in-one total accounting software.
Over all i think that yardi is great. I love that it is so customizable.

Cons

I have a problem with one tenant payment and I didn’t pay for their support, so that made it more difficult.
Then my tenants started complaining because they could not pay via the site!!! Ugghhhh!!!! Plus, there is no way to see who had been emailed, what has been collected, etc.
I would be worried about the level of service if even the sales people don’t call you back when you are a prospective client.

Cons

This is inconvenient if you have an unreliable internet connection. Also, the Yardi server is often down and it is hard to get ahold of customer service.
In general, it's been a real struggle. It's just been really hard making Yardi work for my company.
Companies without this necessary IT role/department will struggle.

GREAT!!!!! LOVE I had Yardi Breeze and it was NOT a Breeze

Pros

I love how it is easy to use, simple... I have used Quick Books for years, and find I like this better for property management. If I get stuck, and do not understand something, you guys get back in a timely manner

Cons

I know this runs kind of like quick books. I wish you could enter a search for a transaction, and the trancsction would populate, like quick book has. I know here you enter CTRL F to to this, but seems limited as I have found

Great product with many features

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

most features are easy to access, feature rich, even though been using it for more than 2 years, there are still much to learn. support is good, they answer quick, had some comparison between buildium and other management software, price value to my size of company is still the best

Cons

some check printing feature is not as convenient as yardi, and many additional features costs money.

training videos aren't very good I've used Yardi and Onesite and this one seems okay

Pros

easy to find tenant, owner, and unit information and ledgers

Cons

pulling reports, long call times for support, not sure how to use work orders

Vendor response

Hi Angela, Thanks for your review! When calling during peak hours, there may be hold times but you can opt to be called back and not lose your place in line. In addition to customer care, you can search our support library through the Help & Support menu. We have lots of articles about the ins and outs of work orders that could prove useful! - Charlie W

Buildium is getting to be exactly what apartment owners/prop manager need

Reviewed 6 years ago

Reall happy with it, I loved QB but they did not cover all of the areas I needed. I used Yardi and HATED it, so Buildium is similar to Yardi, QB and it has a very functional accounting/financials area.

Pros

It offers all aspects of management, including banking and financials. Buildium keeps improving, I am very happy with it.

Cons

Some things haven't been changed yet (like being able to modify/revise a lease once written, to add in a new tenant to an existing lease without rewriting the whole lease.

Best Property Management Software!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Buildium has allowed me to eliminate paper from my business - I can literally do everything electronically. It's a huge time-saver! The software does everything that I need it to do, and more.

Pros

The ability to operate from a ledger - the system is very accountant-friendly and just makes sense.

Cons

I think that the home screen of other systems (Yardi Breeze for example) are a little more visually appealing.

Perfect Property Management Tool

I have worked with Great Plains, Yardi & Buildium. Of these three, Buildium is by far the best & user friendly program.

Pros

The ease of having to change invoices/checks & anything that has to do with tenant's ledger.

Cons

The G/L accounts are not very easily accessible.

We tried Yardi and it was awful. Too complex, too many names for the same thing. Pushy customer support and online tutorials.

Pros

Easy to enter properties, owners and tenants.

Cons

The fact that is American and we are in Canada. There is a difference in taxes and bank account formats.

Better then Yardi and Quickbooks

Reviewed 2 years ago

The software is better the Yardi and Quickbooks, but I will say I am on the phone with the support staff at least once a week with questions and hope future iterations work better with Apple products.

Pros

We like the monthly reporting feature and how all the transactions flow into the reports.

Cons

It does not play well with an i-Pad and I am not sure how it will do with other Apple products. Several delays or hang ups that cause you to go to History and clear out the Cache once or twice a day, or after a hour or two’s use.

Vendor response

Hi Mark, Thanks for your review! It's great to know you're enjoying our reporting feature. For iPad use, if you're using the software in Safari, you may find Google Chrome as a better option. Additionally, our Buildium mobile app is compatible with iPad. If you haven't already, give that a try! You can find the app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/buildium/id1288105237 - Charlie W

Buildium Rocks!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I love using Buildium. It is externally easy to navigate and the learning curve in getting up to speed is very short. The interface is terrific. It saves me tons of time. Buildium is continuing to evolve with new improvement and features. The support online and on the phone is Rock solid.

Cons

The email platform needs to be upgraded. I would also prefer to make a one time purchase of the software instead of an ever increasing monthly bill. As my business grows I am paying too much monthly and am seriously looking into other options that I can own such as Yardi.

Overall Great Product

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, Buildium has streamlined my 30 Associations management, my staff, and books. The ease of use is the best feature. I would recommend it.

Pros

Ease of Use, clients love Resident Center. We have 850 units. Call in to add more units, customer service is quick and helpful. I love that Buildium started with me when I only had 35 units. No other software would. My customized pricing is competetive.

Cons

When entering payables, it's easy to pay bills twice, as they do not track invoice numbers and alert you "this has already been paid" like Yardi does. Financials, I wish they had more reports for receivables, more detailed reporting. Lastly, EPAY applications are taking up to 2 weeks to approve. It's simply too long.

Our company manages residential and commercial rentals. I searched for a long time for a web-based product to meet our needs after using Yardi for years. We were still using an older DOS version of Yardi and it was not user-friendly or easy for employees to learn and had limited capabilities. I found Buildium after researching options and set it up for a test drive. We love the online web version...

Truly a fabulous product!

Reviewed 13 years ago

Your clients will love it! Your tenants will love it! You will love it! It far and away surpasses all of the competition we have tried such as PropertyWare (too many unused features and a price tag that will make you choke), Yardi (customer service is like trying to make the mean girl in 4th grade both nice and helpful - just give it up) or just plain, old QuickBooks modified for our business (much more complex and didn't track Work Orders). I am VERY glad we switched to Buildium!

Pros

--I love just about all of the features of Buildium. The best is that the program offers me enough bells and whistles that it does everything I want but not so many that i have to pay for a bunch of things my staff won't use. --The 24/7 availability and ease of navigation for owners has swayed clients to us from our competition! --The real and actual desire by the Buildium team to grow the product in a way that is beneficial to its customers is outstanding. --The ease of use for my staff and myself.

Cons

--There are cons?
