What do the next 3 years look like for Property Management?

If we go back a few years, the property management sector was a bit slow to adopt new changes, especially those revolving around technology and automation. But in the present day, it has taken a dramatic step forward.

The introduction of technologies like blockchain transactions, virtual assistants, self-showings and tours, smart locks, real-time communication, and more, have all reshaped the industry, making property management all the more organised, efficient, and productive.

A look at the next 3 years in Property Management.

Property management and maintenance software

Perhaps, one of the most significant trends in the property management sector is the use of property management software, including inspection and maintenance software. This has proven not only useful but downright crucial, helping property managers and landlords save time by automating tasks like scheduled maintenance and inspections, requests for repairs and/or maintenance, rent collection and lease renewals, and more.

In addition, these software-based platforms have enabled all parties involved to take advantage of real-time data to make more informed decisions around pricing and especially property marketing. 

More importance now being given to the tenant’s experience.

As the rental market continues to get more competitive, the tenant experience is one of the factors that has stood out in terms of attracting and retaining tenants.

Property managers are now taking specific steps to enhance the tenant experience in any way they can, including the ability to conduct virtual tours and remote viewings, as well as improving communication and responsiveness, both through specialised software and otherwise.

Enhancing communication, in fact, is now one of the key factors which nearly all property managers agree enhances the overall tenant experience. With clearer, more transparent communication regarding lease agreements, for example, and other related policies, property managers and landlords aim to make tenants feel more empowered, informed, and better cared for.

Remote management of property.

In the next three years and beyond, we also see a lot of data analytics and predictive maintenance being used as powerful tools in property management – now an accepted way of boosting efficiencies and reducing costs.

Through the collection and analysis of specific data, property managers, landlords and letting agencies can identify maintenance needs and conduct timely inspections, thus, reducing downtime dramatically and minimising disruptions as much as possible to tenants.

One of the most talked about benefits of data analytics in the property management sector is being able to identify trends and patterns, and then using them to improve property performance. For example, property managers are using data to identify areas which require more regular inspection and maintenance, as well as track utility usage or a property’s financial performance.

This information ultimately drives better decisions around pricing and marketing as well as maintenance, which means increased profitability and efficiency.

Conclusion

With many other emerging trends, one of the most important ones in property management is the use of a software-based property inspection and management tool. Tim, The Inspection Manager, allows you to do just that, where you can instantly view clear and transparent reports on your assets and maintenance issue resolution.
