What is Buildium?

Buildium is a cloud-based property management solution that enables managers of residential and association properties to take complete control of every aspect of their business, including the rent, vacancy and maintenance cycles.

According to the vendor, Buildium streamlines management of the rent cycle with key features such as tenant and lease tracking, full general ledger accounting, automated rent and late fee reminders and on-demand reports. Additionally, rent collection can be automated; and property managers can receive online payments via Buildium’s tenant portal.

Management of the vacancy cycle begins with syndicating vacancies to Buildium’s listing partners, including Zillow, Trulia and Craigslist, as well as Buildium’s own free marketing website. When applicants fill out Buildium’s customizable online rental applications, the information is saved instantly to the Buildium tenant database. Buildium also offers online tenant screening services for running background checks.

Tenants and rental owners can submit requests online via Buildium’s tenant and owner portals. Property managers can turn these requests into work items and assign them to maintenance managers and staff using Buildium or Buildium’s mobile app. All requests are timestamped and include an option to attach photos.

Buildium’s tiered-pricing plans do not require a start-up fee or annual contract. A monthly subscription includes 24/7 support from a customer care team.

I use Buildium to manage the day-to-day details of a small property management company. I pay bills, record resident transactions and work orders, and track expenses and project planning. We manage 76 units total, and for a property of this size, Buildium is both easy to use and affordable.

We use Buildium for our Property Management Software. All leasing, tenant, and owner relations as well as financials are run through Buildium. We process applications, create leases, move tenants in, accept rent payments, payout owners, and handle all maintenance requests and work orders in the system. We utilize the integrations with Lead Simple, Tenant Turner, and Happy.co to keep everything together.

We were an early adopter of Buildium back in 2007 when cloud-based property management was still in its infancy. Being a midsize property management company in San Diego having a cloud-based management solution that handles all of our accounting billing rent collection maintenance and other aspects of ongoing management is crucial so that all employees have remote access both at work at home and in the field.

I am a property manager in our HOA division. Buildium is a valuable tool we use to efficiently and effectively manage all of our properties, from financial reports and management to maintenance issues as well as tracking violations. Buildium enables us to keep all documents we need for each community in one place for easy reference or for sharing with owners and board members.

Used to manage rental property payments. Love that it means people don't pay by check any longer and can pay immediately on the day of. Auto notices help manage the system, and confirmations help everyone stay organized.

I use Buildium to manage a hundred units in 2 different states. Bulidum is used to track all financials, along with lease terms, tenants and vendors. These 100 units are split between the ownership of 5 LLCs and 8 different bank accounts. Buildium is user-friendly for basic management uses, however, this software is inefficient and difficult when attempting to communicate between the various companies. Specifically, a note between LLC A and LLC B will only register on one LLC ledger, and therefore must have 2 accts. to show the debit and credit for each company. Also, the Bills feature when paid with the Check feature, locks any information regarding the Bill, and cannot be undone, unless the transaction is un-reconciled. Also, you have to un-reconcile all months up to the desired date, meaning if you want to fix a date from May, and it is August, you have to un-reconcile July & June to get to May. It is really not as fun as it sounds. The software also poses problems with credit/deposit transfers. Crediting a tenants deposit to a different unit, will not be transferred into the security deposit liability acct. of that new unit. Overall, Builidum lacks on the financial side but is good for very basic transactions.

I work for a residential property management company. We have been using Buildium for about the past 5 years, company-wide. Buildium allows us to communicate with other departments of the office, as well as our tenants and home owners. In our company communication is a key component in our success, as there are many different parties involved in the company, from employees, management, and clients. Buildium allows us to all stay updated, informed and in touch.

Buildium is being used by every employee at Rental Advisors. We use it to track every interaction we have with our clients and tenants. It allows other to see who had contact with them last, and what is still in progress so that everyone is up to date. This helps to readily present to every member what is going on without needing to talk to every employee in person.
