We've all experienced finding a random box of history - old love letters, warranty manuals for long-forgotten devices, a box of checks for a bank account you no longer use. Today I found a file that made me sigh "oh dear lord!"
The file was labeled "OWNER YEARLY STATEMENTS" and in it was stack of endless notes and spreadsheets and copies of invoices used to compile yearly finacial statements and future budgets for the portfolio of owners I managed roughly 1,200 units for. I instantly felt my shoulders tense up with muscle memory for past hours spent pouring over gobs of paperwork. Then I start to laugh thinking of how far things have changed and I hear this iconic old person's voice chime in "... back when I was a kid, we had to walk to school in the snow with shoes with holes in them..."
The found file has been put into the recycling bin.
With web-based property management software, long gone are the days of tracking property financials and creating meaningful reports for investors manually. No longer do you need to lug around 10" thick manilla folders full of spreadsheets and chicken-scratch. If you are, please, please, please stop! Your time is too valuable!
I no longer spend my days crunching numbers for investors, mediating tenants or resolving maintenance , but I do work with thousands of customers who do.
