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

We scheduled a call and within the first five minutes he was helping true up a couple of items. He was great and provided great value.
Customer Support is excellent. There is great help on the Chat window and when that isn't available, phone support is great.
You are provided with more information at the best price available in the market today. What I like the best is not only the information that is provided, but the customer service.

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

The only downside I have found with this software is its inability to integrate with QuickBooks.
Strictly operator error, I forget my log in from time to time. Seriously, I haven't found anything I'm unhappy with.
That company did a terrible job and forced us to find a solution to be able to handle the job on our own.

One of the best investments we have made for our business

Reviewed 3 years ago

Such a great investment - worth every penny; it's like having an employee we don't have to manage.

Pros

This software allows us to handle money with tenants in a streamlined and direct way. Many younger tenants don't have check books; Buildium is direct and easy for us and for our tenants.

Cons

Some items are not intuitive; there are too many ways to access the same information.

Favorite Pajamas

Reviewed a year ago

5 out of 5. I wish I had never left.

Pros

I returned to Buildium after being away because the financial reporting is more accurate. I told my onboarding specialist that it was like putting on my favorite pair of pajamas. I also prefer the texting app to Rentec's, the design and view, as well as the availability on my cell phone and tablet through the app.

Cons

I would love to be able to text applicants about their application. Also, Management Fee collection is a bit more complicated in Buildium. I am not sure how to streamline this, however, I started out doing it the way I did in Rentec and not the recommended way Buildium suggests. I will be using their way and see if things are less complicated.

Life Saver!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I absolutely love the Happy Co app for my phone when doing move out inspections. I also love the templates and the ease of sending out Pay or Quit notices to tenants. The amount of time that I have saved by using Buildium is immeasurable.

Pros

This program is extremely user friendly. Our tenants and homeowners also love the online access as well as online payment and direct deposit options.

Cons

My only concern is that most all of my support calls are not able to be answered right away and I have to wait for a call back but it is usually within the hour.

It works well. Seems bulletproof so far. Could be more flexible.

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

It's online with individual tenant web pages for reviewing rent status and direct payments. It handles most things very competently. The vendor is always ready to respond when help is needed.

Cons

There's less flexibility in extracting data on exactly what was spent to vendors, in categories, over specific time periods, etc., than my older system that's been running since 1986. It is also a double entry system, which is overkill for my small operation. The vendor is slow to implement simple changes. They make a lot of noise about some additional set of features that they added but take years to address awkward aspects of old features. I still can't pay part of an invoice, withhold money on a job, make partial payments, etc.

Best accounting program for rental property income and expenditure

Reviewed 3 years ago

With Buildium, all my income and expenditure information, receipts and invoices plus lease agreements etc are all stored in the one place. At tax time, printing out reports for my tax agent is simple and quick.

Pros

Easy to use and can cope with multiple properties. Reports can be generated for variations in financial year reporting of different counties. You can set up recurring bills so they appear on your list of things to do which reminds you and you don't have to re-enter all the data each time you have a bill to pay.

Cons

This is an American based program and for American users, it offers the ability to pay bills direct from your bank account etc. For me in Australia, this facility is unavailable.

Overall, even when I’m having a hard time with the program, I’m am pretty happy with its usage and the customer care line as someone always helps me within in an hour or less.

Good software, constant updates, GREAT support

Reviewed 11 years ago

9 of 10 would recommend to any investor or property manager. Great value and great customer service....something you don't get many places anymore.

Pros

Web based software allows access wherever a PC and Internet are available. Handles most of the day-to-day work that any investor or property manager would come across. PDF reports based on building performance, picture and image attachments to buildings or tenants, individual sign ins for owners/tenants/managers/maintenance, etc. Full of features and abilities to make your business better. The customer service and support is absolutely TOP NOTCH. They are constantly asking for feedback and you can see they take customer suggestions and implement them. They want to become a standard in the industry and will do anything to make a customer happy and get them the answers they're looking for.

Cons

Mobile apps for Android still in the works. iPhone app not as feature-rich as it could be. Some tasks can be tedious, but new update this summer may help that. Direct import/export to QuickBooks not available.

Great job at making the relationships between tenants and owners

Reviewed 3 years ago

Buildium has freed up a lot of time during the application process, the manual rent payment processing (thanks to ePay), and allows me to store relevant documents (leases, copies of repairs) online and accessible at any time.

Pros

I like that I can upload and save data that I need while out of the office, and have current information at my fingertips as this is an online based system. No need to run back to the office and dig through a filing cabinet. I love it when tenants pay online and Owners sign up for direct deposit, ePay is a must!

Cons

I do not like that I don't get a warning message if I attempt to double charge a management fee for the same period.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Pretty good support. Sometimes a long wait time for support but I always got good advice on how to use the product to my advantage. Great for my small business that I hope to grow. You don't need to hire a property manager at 6% plus fees with Buildium support.

Cons

A little bit of a learning curve but it has a lot of content and different ways to do your book keeping. Need a learning video for small users on how to do it the simple way, like direct check recording so you don't have to put a bill in first. The software is set up for both small and large users but they may want to do those as separate platforms.

These features include the accounting and banking, direct deposit (ACH), and more. What started as a great idea has now become a nightmare. It took almost 3 weeks to have accounts moved from one LLC to another, checks have now been written by Forte to another business that is no longer and they refuse to re-issue them, I have numerous emails with Forte about account verification etc. Forte has even emailed you for hep on this and NO RESPONSE!!!!---- needless to say I am no longer a fan

I have a few minor quibbles with Jim’s review, but he’s mostly right. While you can invoice an owner for repairs, it’s not as easy as it should be. Jim’s also right about our reports; we provide most of the reports people expect, but you can’t customize them and trying to manipulate them in Excel is a pain. That’s something we plan to tackle in a future release. It’s also way too hard to find what you’re looking for in the current release, but that’s changing with the new global search feature due out in the next few weeks. You still won’t be able to search for a missing check, but that’s on our roadmap too.

Rentec Direct

Primarily Use for Advertising Non-MLS Properties

Reviewed a year ago

Even though we jumped to Buildium for most of our Property Management activities, we stayed with Rentec for the marketing aspects as their system is probably the most flexible out there for that. It would be better if we had 1 system doing everything but we are picky and want the best best of both worlds are willing to pay for it.

Pros

We use the property setup screens, the rental website portal, and syndication. We love that we can list a rental property and either syndicate it to listing services or just advertise it without syndicating it. This has helped us greatly in our marketing, especially for properties that we will only lease and not manage.

Cons

Rentec has accounting built-in but we were never able to make a go of it as it didn't have all of the functionality that we needed so we stayed with Quickbooks Premium for years until deciding to jump to Buildium for accounting and leasing.

Thanks for the review, Rick! We're so happy you've been with us for six years and that you're enjoying all the marketing features. So many enhancements have happened since you came on board. I'll reach out to you to see if you might be missing out on new features, especially related to accounting. Cheers!
