iManageRent – more than just rental listings.

Create your rental listing with iManageRent

 

There are plenty of listing services in the rental market place. Most are very different but they all have one thing in common: tenants looking to rent and live in their dream home.

To maximize exposure landlords and property managers should post on to multiple rental platforms (listing sites). Hence, the more sites the more visibility and the more interested prospects. However, listing on multiple sites can be very time consuming and picking one or two sites that you think will be effective is a crapshoot.

Just imagine if you decide to list on 10 different sites: Zillow, Trulia, Craigslist, Apartments.com, Livelovely, Rentpath, Apartmentlist, Rentjungle and etc… You have to signup on each service individually and get verified before you can start listing.  Then the repetitive task of inputting your rental information and uploading photos begins. And the arduous task of proof reading never ends. Thirty minutes can pass by very quickly before your done on one site.  That’s five hours for ten sites, yikes!!!  There must be a faster and more accurate way to accomplish this task.

This is where iManageRent saves the day! Using this service allows you to create a listing that works and post automatically on to more than 20 sites! With its’ comprehensive listing wizard you will be guided to enter all pertinent information to the last detail. You will have the added value and the confidence that you created your marketing campaign in a proper way because the system will help minimize mistakes. Furthermore, based on a quick analysis of the entered information our recommendation for “Best Marketing Practices”  will be suggested to you automatically.

List everywhere and control on iManageRent

One of iManageRent’s greatest features is the ability to monitor the status of your listings. You can view when external listing sites publish your listing, hold it do to technical reasons or even flag it for removal.  You can also control all the listings you posted via iManageRent to the syndicated sites from one place, your iManageRent dashboard.

Furthermore, you will receive inquiries from all the syndicated listing sites in one place: “your own email”. At the same time you still have access to all conversations on your iManageRent dashboard. All your contacts and correspondence are ready for use in the event something happens with your email service. You will not lose this information.

If you have listed on multiple sites before, you know that every listing service sends you inquiries in their own format. It can be challenging to keep up with all the different styles. iManageRent reformats inquiries and only shows you the pertinent information. All the unnecessary advertising that is usually part of the inquiry emails is also stripped, making it easier for you to read and communicate with prospective tenants

All management links and buttons provided in the email notifications are designed to save you time while you are on the go!

 

Share the workload with your property managers, co-landlords or colleagues

Do you have a property manager or a listing agent who works with your listings? Are you a real estate professional with many colleagues? or Are you a husband and wife team co-owning a building together?  With iManageRent’s additional user feature, it is very easy to work together by share listings, inquiries, lease applications and etc…

This feature brings uniformity, transparency and control to working groups.

 

 

Protect yourself by knowing your tenant

Tenant background checks are very important today. There are surprisingly a very high incidents of identify theft and fraudulent activity that exists in the real estate rental world. Never trust anyone. A thorough background screening of your prospective tenants should include: credit check, national eviction history, national criminal history and a rent application. iManageRent allows you to receive all of these reports automatically. Once a prospect is interested and ready, you allow the prospect to send you a completed “Lease Application” with the click of a button.  Email instructions on how to obtain all the necessary reports goes automatically to the prospective tenant and you will be notified upon completion.  Furthermore, based on your preset criteria and the tenants ability to pay iManageRent will supply you with a “Lease Recommendation”.
