“Why should I switch to digital leasing?”
It’s a question some property managers might have when they hear about online leasing systems. After all, they might think, paper leases have worked fine for us so far, so why should we bother with the trouble of making a change?
But the truth is that digital leasing offers major advantages over paper leases that you might not be aware of if you only use paper documents. Here are a few of the biggest benefits you could see from a move to a digital leasing platform.
1. Smoother signings – New residents don’t want to come to the property or to your office and have a meeting with you to sign their lease. That takes a lot of time, and it’s unnecessary when the process could be handled in just minutes online. Digital platforms eliminate the wasted time and simplify the signing process.
2. Easier move-ins – As the move-in date approaches, new residents often have a lot of questions. Online leasing can help, because if the lease is easily available to the resident in a convenient digital format, they’ll be able to answer a lot of their own questions by reading it. They’ll have peace of mind, and you won’t need to be bothered. Plus, this is a great way to implement self-service, a big property management trend in the coming year.
3. Better records – A digital platform keeps track of all of your leases and riders, and it keeps them right at your fingertips, easily searchable and ready at any time. You’re never more than a few seconds away from finding exactly the lease you need. That’s a lot better than trying to remember where you filed something you need and flipping through countless papers. For more on the importance of keeping good records, read our recent blog!
4. Saved time – Think of all of the time you spend on paper leases: printing them, scanning them, mailing them, filing them, waiting for them to be signed and returned to you. It starts to add up very quickly! Switching to a digital platform can put an end to all of that wasted time. You’ll be able to spend a lot less time on unnecessary leasing hassles, and a lot more time on more important things.
