Overall Satisfaction with Buildium

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.
  • Bill pay
  • Expense tracking
  • Lead generation
  • Work order flow is not intuitive
  • Website is sometimes troublesome
  • Customer service leaves A LOT to be desired
  • Accounting
  • Key performance metrics
  • Ease of use
  • I spend less time on reconciliation
  • I am able to easily track and plan growth
  • Residents can easily use the platform
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.

Do you think Buildium delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of Buildium go as expected?


Would you buy Buildium again?


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