5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as Always, October 31, 2012

This review is from: Quicken Rental Property Manager 2013 [Download] [OLD VERSION] (Software Download)
I decided to purchase this product because of a negative review of another user so I could see for myself. I have used the Rental Property Manager edition for two years now and have been very pleased with the product. The new edition is not a vast improvement over the 2012 version, but there are a number of nice enhancements to note:

1. Mobile app for Android and Apple IOS devices
2. Email and text alerts for overages on your budget
3. Loan account synchronization

The first one alone sells it for me. I believe you can get the app to work with the less feature-rich versions of the software, but I needed this version since I run a business and manage properties. Many have been waiting for a proper mobile app from an accounting software vendor and it's finally here. No more 3rd party apps.

This is a perfect product for smaller businesses when you want to have your personal accounts, business accounts and rental properties all in one. Everything is a based on a cash accounting system so you don't have to deal with general ledger chart of accounts. The price is reasonable compared to other larger software that is centered primarily around at least five employees and full payroll.

In all, if you don't need these few new features, upgrade next year.

UPDATE 11/1/12: There is one last thing with which I am very pleased. Transactions now save themselves when you leave the record as opposed to confirming every time. This is very nice as the 2012 version required that you click an extra button when saving the record. This became very tedious when updating 100's of records at a time. I noticed other little bugs have also been fixed. This is what 2012 should have been. I am pleased.

Kathryn will the new version allow generating a list of tenants lease expiration dates in sequential order?

Hi Leisha,
It's not possible right now to generate a list of tenants by expiration dates. You can view a list by lease start date, but there's no report that will show the expiration dates.

Hope this helps,

Kathryn, how can you get the icons to show up beside those tenants who are late and have late fees.....

Thanks,
Karla

Hi Karla,
Do you mean the action flags? To get these to appear on the account, you'd need to create a deposit reminder (in this case, for rent due) on the account--then when the rent is deposited, you can clear the reminder flag. If the tenant doesn't pay or is late, the reminder flag will remain on the account.

Hope this helps,
Kathryn

Kathryn, How can I handle tenants who pay half the rent and pay half in two more weeks. Or even worse give you a check payable on the 7th and 21st? Other than throw them out of course.
