Shelley is one of our customers here at Landlord Vision and she’s kindly shared her experience of using property management software. Read on to find out how Shelley manages her properties and which software features have helped her to become more detail oriented.
How do you run your property portfolio?
I run my properties as a business and focus on optimising profitability, as this is my sole source of income. When I retire, I plan to sell the properties to fund my retirement.
What made you choose Landlord Vision?
My previous property management system was fine, but I thought there’d be other programmes that might help me to run things more efficiently. I decided to give Landlord Vision a go largely because of the diverse functionality that was on offer.
Once I started using Landlord Vision to maintain my property portfolio, I found that my management process became more detail oriented and was made better by the range of useful features that I didn’t previously have access to. My process also became quicker and saved me time.
Overall I now have a better handle on my properties’ finances.
Do you have any favourite features?
I like the tax features because they make it easy to identify areas that can be improved on in order to limit liabilities, i.e. the expenses and different reports etc.
I also think the ‘target rents’ feature is great, which is something I didn’t think I’d necessarily use. This allows me to set targets up for how much rent I aim to make over the year.
Would you recommend Landlord Vision to other landlords?
Yes, and I wouldn’t be without this system. I have used others before, but this is better in many ways as it’s quite simple.
