AppFolio Property Manager

We are able to manage the move-in process from scheduling a tour to the day of move-in through AppFolio. On the management side, budgetary things are managed in this system as well. When it comes to a true tool that’s easy to use and effective in helping to manage a property--this is it! Leasing consultant performance can even be tracked easily in this system.

SkySlope is most suited for real estate firm document management. I cannot think of another industry that it would be suited for; it is pretty specific. If you have less than 20-30 transactions a year, it wouldn't probably be worth the money versus just scanning. Our company does ~150 per year, and it saves me so much time. It is great for managing brokers of any sized firm with a fair number of transactions.

Pros

AppFolio Property Manager

  • Wonderful user experience. I can log on to the interface, see exactly what is going on for the day: move-outs, move-ins, who owes rent, late fees, etc. You can also modify your screen exactly how you want it!
  • I love the quicklinks. You can see who is delinquent with their rent and automatically add late fees or even send a quick email/text.
  • LOVE the option to text the entire property. Ex: the pool shut down for emergency cleaning, and I was able to send out a quick text so that all tenants were notified, even if they were out of state.

Cons

AppFolio Property Manager

  • Only a few very technical items that wouldn't necessarily make sense to non-users and I haven't even cared enough to submit requests on the issues. It'd be nice if parking was easier to keep track of on the system. Right now, if you run a report it doesn't show all the information our company requires for the vehicles and therefore we have to keep track of it elsewhere.
  • Another obstacle we've encountered is that the program charges "by door" so if you have multiple units and properties you can really rack up pricing. That's especially true for large multi-unit buildings with parking.

SkySlope

  • Their task manager is not good at all. It is clunky and not very intuitive. In principle, I like the ability to assign tasks to new transactions, but overall this functionality lacks.
  • If a file is created, it canNOT be deleted. This is very annoying in the case of accidental file creation; it jumbles the archive. Seems like a very easy thing to implement, but support said there isn't currently a way.
  • The quick audit function is great when files are new, but it is not available for completed files to do the final review. Again an easy implement you would think, but not having this makes reviewing files in the final stages very clunky. It takes forever. Support gave me a workaround, so that helps.

The system is so intuitive and easy to use. There’s almost nothing in the system that can’t be undone if you make a mistake. Important things also have their own tabs. It’s also easy to use from the resident side which is helpful for in a world where everyone is not tech-savvy.

The customer support is slow but reliable. Getting someone to get back to you on a forum is quick and easy. That hey use client's as their workforce to answer questions of other clients is crowd-sourcing at its finest.

Alternatives Considered

AppFolio Property Manager

Each of the above have good features. I simply believe that AppFolio is the BEST I have ever used.
Robin Quick, CPM®, HCCP | TrustRadius Reviewer

SkySlope

SkySlope just has a lot more functionality over this software. All three have a comparable digital signature and templating capabilities. but SkySlope has many additional purposes. I have not found another software like it. Other software I demo-ed was not even close, so SkySlope seems to have the market cornered, but I haven't evaluated again for a couple of years.

Return on Investment

AppFolio Property Manager

  • Collecting rents via ACH is a positive.
  • Managing turnover via rpeorts is a positive.
  • Not being able to talk to someone in support regarding questions is a problem.

SkySlope

  • Positive as its ease of use has allowed us to scale back hiring to realize more profits.
