Pros
This free software from Stessa works wonderfully for tracking expenses. When I had an issue, it was resolved immediately so customer service is top notch as well.

JEFFERY S.

Just like the title suggests - so far so good. The customer support has been surprisingly quick and helpful.

CS

Collin S.

This was easy to address with the software and when I asked for help on the "help me" message board, I got a complete, useful answer the next day.

BD

Benjamin D.

Cons
With my vision getting worse as I get older, it’s hard to read the numbers. I have to enlarge the numbers to read it.

DH

Deanna H.

It makes me a little bit nervous connecting my financial institutions to the website in light of all the hacking going on these days.

As a single-entry accounting system, it comes with all the drawbacks associated with that method of accounting (no cross-checking, greater potential for error, no tracking of real accounts, etc.).

Stessa is a game changer for the independent rental owner.

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

Stessa offers the most intuitive, purpose-built rental property financial software that I’ve come across. Far too many colleagues of mine are still either using overly complicated general accounting software, or worse, tracking everything manually in Excel. Stessa not only allows me to automate the majority of my bookkeeping, but the real time reporting functionality allows me to monitor the performance of my assets and catch anamolys much quicker. While other property management software may offer expense tracking or basic accounting features, Stessa’s exclusive focus on the financial aspect of rental property ownership allows them to offer a far more robust feature set and innovate at a faster clip.

Cons

As a single-entry accounting system, it comes with all the drawbacks associated with that method of accounting (no cross-checking, greater potential for error, no tracking of real accounts, etc.). This was an intentional design decision, however, as this software is geared to be more user friendly for the average rental owner. While it lacks the sophistication of a double-entry system, Stessa has come up with innovative ways to simulate certain aspects of a double-entry system through features like a derived Balance Sheet report using user provided asset values and debt information.

Really helpful for portfolio analysis and organization

Reviewed 2 years ago

This has helped me categorize and organize without me having to "reinvent the wheel" trying to set up a spreadsheet in line with the tax code.

Pros

This software takes all the input and then collates it and calculates it giving you an analysis of individual properties as well as the portfolio in general. It helps me as a newer investor to categorize my transactions which I suspect will be very helpful when it comes to tax season. I like the mileage tab as well as I was bad about recording my mileage and this tab serves as a reminder for me. I'm very excited to see how helpful and effective the software is when it comes to tax time!

Cons

So far I have no complaints at all about this software.

Stessa is Quicken for Real Estate

Reviewed a month ago

I absolutely adore Stessa and tell everyone about it. I'm probably their biggest fan though I'm a small time investor. It is literally the single best accounting app I've ever used and better then working with a CPA or accountant. It's made my life significantly more simple around tax time and for that I am eternally grateful.

Pros

The auto import from my connected accounts including bank and credit card accounts. It also is the biggest help with my taxes that I could ever dream of. Every year I just print out the tax report for each property and my tax guy barely has to ask me any questions.

Cons

To be totally honest there is nothing I don't like. I will say I haven't tried their mobile app in over a year because it used to be pretty weak but I hear it's been updated and very nice now.

Nope. Not gonna do it.

Reviewed 3 years ago

See above

Pros

None- I never got that far. Maybe it's good, but I won't give out sensitive into to a stranger

Cons

As a landlord with multiple properties, I thought this might be a handy tool, so I began the sign up process. Until they asked for my banking info. What?? What do they need that for? Not happening. I'm out.

Vendor response

Hi Nancy - Linking a bank account to Stessa is safe and completely optional, and this is clearly explained during the sign up process. While secure bank connections are the most seamless way to automatically track rental property income and expenses, Stessa also allows users to create transactions manually or via data file uploads. For users who do choose to link accounts, Stessa uses technology similar to sites such as Mint and Personal Capital to link up with thousands of US based banks and credit unions. In any event, we're sorry to hear that Stessa isn't for you and wish you luck finding an alternative that meets your needs.

Fantastic Software

Reviewed 2 months ago

I think this is the best thing out there. Everything about Stessa is top notch from the product itself to the customer service.

Pros

Its easy to use, their is no guess work. I like the banking integration, tenant ledgers, general ledger, balance sheet, income statement, cash flow and every other report you could need. The best part for me is the year end package it generates for my tax guy.

Cons

I'd like to see the ability to update the RE Tax PIN number. Although customer service is excellent and will make any updates you need quickly.
