No More Property Management Headaches

Are you a landlord that wishes property management was easier? Want to ditch your excel spreadsheet handcuffs? Then this podcast is for you! 

Property Management can be a pain in the you-know-what, especially for individual landlords, who don't have an extensive portfolio. There is only so much you can do with an excel sheet to ensure that all is running smoothly. There are many different software companies out there that will help institutional investors, but nothing for the individual investor or high-income W2 side-hustler. 

My guest, Ryan Coon saw this need in the market and developed a property management software to fill this void. Ryan built Avail Property Management with the intention of solving landlord problems. Beyond that, he also wanted to improve the tenant-landlord relationship through efficiency. 

In today's episode, Ryan and I discuss the do's and don'ts of property management, and how his software (which is FREE) can dramatically improve how you manage your property. From finding tenants, viewing credit history, signing leases to collecting rent — on any device, Avail will handle all those needs and more!
