Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Find Answers For Rentables' Property Management Software

General

Rentables is cloud-based property management software built to help property managers and owner-managers more efficiently manage their properties.  At Rentables' core is a robust accounting system that enables you to easily account for all moneys in and out of your trust account while meeting the accounting requirements of most states' real estate commission/bureau. Rentables can be used equally well by property managers who simply forward checks but want to better organize their business.

Rentables also offers many other time saving and organize features such as lease life cycle management, work order, payment processing, call logs, and contact management.

Rentables was designed specifically for property managers whose customers are primarily individual property owners.  If each month you collect rent, pay vendors for maintenance/repairs, and pay owners their net proceeds then Rentables was built for you.  Rentables is particularly well suited for property managers subject to state regulations requiring strict accounting of all trust funds (rents, security deposits, owner reserves, etc).

Rentables is also helpful for owners who manage properties themselves and are looking for a way to keep better records and get more organized.

Rentables' pricing is based on the gross rents under management. Since most property management fees are a percentage of rent, we feel a similar pricing model is appropriate for property management software.  In that way, our success is tied to your success. For just 50¢ per $1000 in rents you can take advantage of Rentables' time saving features including auto generated owner statements and emails, security deposit accounting, and more. See our pricing page for more details.

Having a successfully property management business requires you to keep good records and stay organized, especially as your business grows.  If you're just getting started then now is the perfect time to start using Rentables.  Our pricing is very affordable even if you only have one property.

Property Management Software Features

Yes. Rentables not only tracks start and end dates but it will also let you know when leases are expiring and when new tenants are scheduled to move in.  In addition to the initial rent amount, Rentables allows you to schedule rent increases and will automatically compute property management fees and late fees.  It is also possible to attach a scanned copy of the lease agreement so you always have it at your finger tips should you need to refer to it.

No. Rentables uses a responsive design that works well with your mobile devices' web browser. In this way you have a consistent user experience across devices.

No. We believe small business (SMB) accounting software is appropriate for managing your business including payroll, business expenses, and income not managing properties. Rentables handles all the accounting associated with managing properties and your trust account, keeping this out of your SMB accounting software and simplifying your life.  Each month, or as appropriate, you can simply record your total management fee income in Quickbooks or your SMB accounting software. Rentables will generate a statement for you at the same time you post the draw from your trust account. This clear demarcation helps keep things organized and minimizes the chance for accounting irregularities.

Rentables uses a standard Quickbooks check template. Note you can still record the check in Rentables even if you use another software to print the check.

Yes. Rentables allows you to attach common documents including invoices, rental agreements, and property management agreements.

Rentables uses a rigorous double entry accounting system for tracking all funds in and out of your trust account. We track the payer and payee of every transaction, the date it occurred, the date payment was received, the date funds were disbursed, and the date reconciled.  Rentables also provides ledgers for each property and lease account and tracks all vendor payments making year-end statements and 1099s a snap. We believe that when used properly Rentables gives you all the tools you need to be compliant.
