If you’re the owner of a growing portfolio of rental properties, there is no doubt you will run into the inevitable growing pains. Luckily, this is where Property Management Softwares come in handy–as well as softwares for all sorts of vacation rental management support.
There are dozens of property & rental management software tools on the market to help you solve any pain points you may encounter so that you can seamlessly scale your portfolio.
The difficult part? Deciding which property management software is best for you.
This is where we can help.
In this article, we’ve listed 31 of the absolute best – and many essential – softwares that every vacation rental manager needs in their tech stack. To be clear, this is just strictly PMS–but it is all softwares that can help support various aspects of managing your property, from dynamic pricing softwares for short-term rentals to security solutions.
But first, here’s some additional information on how integrating property management and vacation rental softwares can help you grow your business and bottom line together.
Property management software is programs, systems, apps, software, and other online tools that help property managers automate business tasks and better manage their rental properties.
There are many moving parts involved in managing a portfolio of rental properties.
There are software and tools to help manage and automate each of these elements. Some even help you manage all of them from one central platform.
One thing we can say without any doubt is that implementing software into your operations will save you a lot of time and money.
If that isn’t enough to convince you, you can also reduce the risk of booking bad guests, optimize your pricing, increase your occupancy rate, and develop more streamlined processes.
In an ideal world, there would be a one-size-fits-all software solution for property managers. Some do come close, but the nature of the business means you will likely have to use some other platforms too.
Make sure any software you’re interested in integrates with the booking platforms and other important tools for your business.
With all the possible benefits and so few downsides, it’s really a no-brainer whether or not you should start using property management software. Also, with most tools offering free trials, there’s no harm in testing out a couple.
Here is a closer look at 31 of the best softwares to include in your property management tech stack so you can manage your growing portfolio with ease.
Autohost has three different pricing tiers; Pro, which is ideal for 10-50 listings, Growth for property managers with 50+ listings, and Enterprise if you have some bespoke needs.
They don’t have any set monthly pricing plans. Autohoust encourages anyone interested to book a demo and they’ll discuss pricing with you.
Breezeway does not disclose their pricing plans. If you’re interested in testing this software, they do offer free demons on request.
You can try their service for free for 14 days with limited features. Their paid plans start at $47/mo for 1 optimization guide and scale up to their Ultra plan which includes 4 optimization guides.
Properly do not make any pricing public. They do, however, allow you to use their software for free before committing to a plan.
Rented offers a mix of consultancy services with real property managers with extensive experience and the latest revenue management software.
It’s this personal touch and being able to speak to people with experience in the rental market that separates their service from many software providers.
To get started, you simply give them details of your properties and what you want to achieve. A team member will then prepare a contract and outline what they can do to help you increase your revenue and occupancy rate.
You can get started for free if you want to test out this software. The free plan only gives you access to the reservations system (PMS), but it’s a great way to test the product without committing.
For full access to the complete suite of tools, pricing starts at $18.00/mo for one property. Both options come with a 14-day free trial.
You can create a profile and get started with Superhog for free. Pricing then starts at £3 (approx $4) per month, with an additional $6 per property for their full suite of services.
Syncbnb is an all-in-one channel manager. You can integrate all the booking platforms you’re using, such as Airbnb and Booking.com, and manage your bookings through one multi-calendar.
The real-time sync avoids double bookings, you can optimize your prices, communicate with your team, and streamline various other tasks.
