Buildium

For larger communities, Buildium doesn’t have the accounting capabilities you need. Anything up to 100 units is easily managed and works well.

I was looking for a way to manage my properties from anywhere, and I found this. FotoNotes is a cloud-based property management software that gives you easy-to-manage real-time inspections, maintenance, and construction in a responsive mobile app for quick access. It also has an easy-to-prepare report using FotoNotes. Great support and sales team as well.

I have been able to get through to support immediately and they have been awesome in quickly resolving issues. More importantly, their communication when there is an issue which might take some time to resolve surfaces. Getting updates and resolution are critical.

Alternatives Considered

Buildium

Appfolio is my favorite software, and they are constantly making improvements. Buildium is great if you don’t have a ton of property but is not as manageable for advanced accounting and resident information tracking. There are workarounds, but they do need to work on their ease of use for owners.
