AppFolio Property Manager has lots of great functionality for all types of residential property managers. We’ve built these features for the multifamily management company to reduce turn time and increase profitability.

Because the software is so easy to use and includes the ability to control and authorize access at different user levels you can distribute even more work to the on-site staff while the management team retains excellent visibility across the entire portfolio.

Ratio Utility Billing: Free, With AppFolio ‐ Instead of paying $2 or more (per unit, per month) Ratio Utility Billing (RUBS) is included with your AppFolio service. Multifamily operators can increase revenue and cover the growing cost of utilities without painful integrations or manual processes. Simply set up the allocation one time, enter the utility bills each month – resident charges are automatically calculated and applied to the rental statement… it’s that easy!

Accrual Accounting ‐ Accurate accounting is the heart of your business. Choose from cash or accrual options.

Property Budgeting ‐ Manage and share budgets at the property level.

Prospect Tracking ‐ Start the leasing flow with trackable guest cards and online applications and ensure you know exactly how you’re spending the marketing budget.

Online Rental Applications ‐ Prospective residents can simply apply online and even pay an application fee via credit card. All of the data from the application is automatically entered into AppFolio, saving you a significant amount of time and energy.

Resident Screening ‐ With a few clicks identify which applicant to select. Store the reports for future access. Plus, the screening reports include rental payment history data from Experian RentBureau so you can select the best possible renter.
