    Pros
    It was very quick, easy, and I have several suitable websites to choose from. It saved me a lot of personal research time and I am happy with the choice I made.

    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.

    Customer Support is excellent. There is great help on the Chat window and when that isn't available, phone support is great.

    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.

    Amazing Solution!

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Overall Rentec increases the profitability of my company immensely. It allows me to automate and streamline many activities that both save time and improve accuracy. Their support team is very responsive and always happy to help walk me through any questions I may have on an entry I've made.

    Pros

    Rentec is very user-friendly. It's functionality is laid out well and it offers modern integrations such as online rent collection, pay owner by ACH, and electronic signatures for lease agreements. I also am impressed with their customer service. They are always very prompt and helpful.

    Cons

    I wish they offered a mobile app for property managers.

    Vendor response

    Come for the website capabilities, stay for the value

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    I switched to this software from another, $10/month cheaper software. Rentec's software is really easy to use. You don't need accounting or business knowledge to operate this software. It is really easy to use. I switched to Rentec so I could have my listings automatically populate on my website (tired of manually entering them on website by Wix). Tenants can also apply electronically from website,...

    Cons

    I have to be honest, I'm complaining about a free feature, but my least favorite part of the software is the website in which I migrated to Rentec for. If I try to edit my website and add items that are not on the template, my website has major HTML coding issues and will not publish properly. The visual appearance of my website thru Rentec is subpar considering what I had before. That said, I could...

    Vendor response

    Thank you, Michael, for your feedback. I'm happy to hear that the majority of your experience with Rentec has been so positive. We're happy you're with us! Adjusting source code on the free website template can throw things for a loop if one character is off, so we typically recommend only website designers adjust it. I would love to see what we can do to assist you with what you're hoping to accomplish on your template. Look for my email! :) If you do opt for a privately hosted website with more flexibility, we offer integration tools for your listings and portals. We look forward to working with you and please reach out if you need our help.

    Property Management for ~100 units

    Reviewed a month ago

    I'd definitely recommend Rentec for any medium sized property management needs. It's a little pricier than some options out there but the functionality has been great.

    Pros

    Rentec has really simplified the lease management and payment system for our tenants which has been a huge time-saver.

    Cons

    It was a little challenging to set up for both our secretary and tenants. But once we got through a few weeks of questions and issues we haven't had many issues.

    Can't recommend this to everyone.

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Honestly, I would switch to another company if I could, but I have too much data in, and am too busy to go through a transfer now, and all of the hassles that would entail. I think Rentec may be a good option if you have only a few units, and very simple accounting, and are looking for a budget product, or have some familiarity with accounting and property management software, so you really don't need the support.

    Pros

    So it is very affordable, and some of the software is pretty simple to set up. They are continuing to add support articles and more functionality.

    Cons

    Functionality, especially in the accounting area is limited. No ability to select "classes". You have to find work arounds for things that you shouldn't have to. The support team is of little support. I have email chains with OVER 15 EMAILS AND THE QUESTION STILL HAS NOT BEEN ANSWERED. It is difficult to reach anyone when you call most times, so you are relegated to chat/email, and often my main...

    Vendor response

    We're sorry to hear you got off on a bad foot and your experience has been so different than other client feedback we hear. I will reach out to you personally as I would love to help clear up any confusion.

    I love their customer support!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I've been a client of Rentec for almost 4 years and what stands out about them to me is their extremely helpful customer support. Special kudos to both Kathryn and Kevin who have helped me accomplish everything I need using their software. Whether I call or email, it seems like I get answers right away. Aside from the software being super easy to learn, I've really enjoyed all the features they've added over the years. It seems like every time I login there's something being improved.

    Pros

    The software is easy to learn for both me and my assistant. We were able to get up and running using the software in days, and that included bringing in all our data. The staff at Rentec was also tremendously helpful in getting it all imported.

    Cons

    The video training material is a bit dated, but still useful.
