How do you organize your property information/portfolio?

1 Reply

Is there a specific program or method you use to organize your properties?  I work in healthcare and I'm thinking of our electronic medical record.  When I pull up a patient, all information pertaining to that patient is in one area- including referrals, imaging, forms, etc.  Is there an equivalent program for real estate?  I am just getting started in real estate and having an efficient organization method is important to me. Thanks in advance!

Hey @Jess Mcguire , great question.  I have grappled with a centralized electronic management system and pieced together my own using Google Drive, but I am upgrading to Buildium.  They seem to have everything I will need to manage my portfolio as it is now, and also be able to handle my portfolio as it grows.  I won't lie, price point was a large part of my deciding factor, and I didn't find many in the price point that I needed or liked until I came across Buildium...the interface closely aligns with AppFolio and the book keeping looks and acts just like Quick Books.  I am staring to on board my company to the platform this week.   Feel free to drop me a line in a couple weeks and I'll let you know my thoughts.
