For several years, the Cozy property management app served property managers and landlords alike.

However, as one of the most popular property management tools on the market, news of its sale and subsequent closing down in 2018 came as a frustration for many.

If you’re shopping around for a great property management tool, chances are you ended up here because it was suggested somewhere online to check out Cozy.

But with Cozy being sold to Apartments.com owner CoStar– and subsequent plans to integrate those tools into the Apartments.com ecosystem not going as planned– many have been left without knowing where to turn.

Cozy

Fortunately, several comparable property management tools now exist that can do what Cozy once did, several of whom can do it better.

That’s why, in this guide, we’ll take you through 8 of the best alternatives to Cozy alternatives out there.

Let’s get started.

8 Cozy property management app alternatives

Here are eight of the best alternatives to the now-defunct Cozy property management app:

1. DoorLoop

DoorLoop Cozy Property Management App

DoorLoop is an all-in-one property management tool with the ideal balance of features, ease-of-use, and responsive customer service.

Its feature set is competitive with the best of them, while users report it’s incredibly easy to use and find elements while being lightning-fast.

You get access to a full suite of accounting features to manage all your property accounting.

Or, take advantage of the convenient QuickBooks Online integration if you rather continue using QB as your go-to accounting tool.

And let’s not forget one of the best parts: users report it has some of the best customer service in the industry. Not only is customer service responsive, but you have the option of talking with a real human being (which, unfortunately, is pretty rare among this list).

DoorLoop features

  • Full suite of accounting tools, including everything from bank reconciliations and automatic rent payments
  • … and a simple and easy QuickBooks Online integration
  • Streamlined maintenance management system where you can create work orders, communicate with tenants, assign vendors, and pay them all from one dashboard
  • A tenant portal where tenants can pay rent and other responsibilities and you can communicate with them directly from within the app
  • Leasing tools that make the entire leasing process from beginning to end run smoother than it ever has
  • Convenient smartphone and cloud versions, so you can access your property info wherever you are
  • And a lot more

DoorLoop pricing

DoorLoop is currently 50% off your first two months. So, you can jump on board for just $24.50 per month for up to 20 units, roughly half what you’ll typically pay for comparable features.

2. SimplifyEM

SimplifyEm

SimplifyEM is less a complete property management tool and more a property accounting software.

If you’re really just looking for something to help manage your property accounting, and the other features such as eLeasing and maintenance management aren’t useful to you, it’s worth considering.

SimplifyEM features

  • QuickBooks Online integration
  • Automatic rent payments
  • Dashboard payment reminders

SimplifyEM pricing

SimplifyEM makes it easy to get started with their free trial version, which is $20 per month after the trial. The plan is limited in both features and number of units (at just 10), so it’s best for smaller portfolios.

3. Rentmoji

Rentmoji

Rentmoji is a good option if what you’re most interested in is a smooth UI and having multiple versions to access anywhere, as it offers both cloud-based and smartphone versions.

They offer a fairly robust list of features, with the trade-off being that they use enterprise pricing. So, you’ll be paying more for the same feature set you’d get from other comparable tools.

Rentmoji features

  • Automatic rent payments
  • Maintenance management
  • Vendor management
  • Clean UI

Rentmoji pricing

Rentmoji doesn’t list their pricing online, so you’ll need to contact their sales team directly to find out more about their exact pricing.

4. Propertyware

Propertyware

Propertyware is a property management tool with strong reporting tools and general accounting features.

Similar to SimplifyEM, Proertyware is ideal if you’re mainly looking to handle your property accounting. However, while SimplifyEM is designed for smaller portfolios, Propertyware is designed for larger portfolios of 250+ units.

Propertyware features

  • Robust reporting
  • Automatic rent payments
  • Tenant communications
  • Owner portal

Propertyware pricing

Propertyware comes in at an affordable $1 per unit per month, though they’re on the expensive side unless you have around 250 or more units, as they have a $250 monthly minimum.

5. TenantCloud

TenantCloud

TenantCloud is a unique option for anyone on a tight budget, and the option on this list with the pricing model most similar to Cozy’s.

That’s because it offers a limited free plan for up to 75 units. Limited in that it only offers a few basic features, while its higher-tier plans offer more features at a comparable price to other options on this list.

There isn’t much you can do besides eLeasing with their free plan. However, if you’re truly on a budget, it’s a good place to get started.

TenantCloud features

  • Online rent payments
  • eLeasing tools
  • Robust reporting

TenantCloud pricing

TenantCloud’s starter tier is free for up to 75 units, and $1 per unit per month thereafter, though it only offers access to a few basic features.

If you want to get access to their full feature set, you’ll need to upgrade to their $40 per month plan.

6. ResMan

ResMan

ResMan is one of only a few options on this list with great user-reported customer service, making it stand out for something other than its feature set.

Users especially report liking a convenient help button located within the app that users can press anytime they’re having issues with the software.

Strangely enough, ResMan conversely doesn’t offer either a knowledge base or tutorial videos, making it a bit hard to get started with.

ResMan features

  • Convenient help button for customer service requests
  • Tenant portal
  • eLeasing tools
  • Accounting tools such as bank reconciliations

ResMan pricing

ResMan doesn’t list their pricing online, so you’ll need to contact them directly to find out more.

7. Yardi Breeze

Yardi Breeze

Yardi Breeze is good if you’re looking for a property management app ideal for smaller portfolios.

That’s because it has a decent set of features while managing to not overwhelm new users, and is relatively easy to get started with.

However, you’ll pay more for the same features than you will with several of the other tools on this list, so it won’t be for everyone.

Yardi Breeze features

  • Tenant portal
  • Online rent payments
  • QuickBooks Online integration
  • Owner portal and reports

Yardi Breeze pricing

Yardi Breeze charges $1 per unit per month, which is affordable compared to many options on this list. However, you’ll pay more if you have less than 100 units as they have a $100 minimum monthly charge.

8. Avail

Avail

Another good option, Avail offers a more comprehensive feature set than Landlordy while also offering a free plan.

Unlike Landlordy’s affordable premium plan, however, Avail’s paid plan isn’t cheap.

Other pros and cons include a decent UI that’s easy to maneuver and, but that’s it’s difficult to get started because Avail doesn’t offer good tutorials or a competent knowledge base for learning how the software works.

Avail features

  • Online rent payments
  • Work order management
  • Tenant screening
  • Automatic listings

Avail pricing

Avail is one of the few options on this list with a free plan, similar to Cozy’s original pricing model. Similarly, though, you’ll need to move up to one of their premium tier plans to get many of the common features that other property management tools offer.

That isn’t quite so affordable, however. At $5 per unit per month, Avail’s premium plans are some of the most expensive on this list.

What is the best Cozy alternative?

While only you can decide which property management app is best for you and your business, we hope one of these serves you well.

If you’re still unsure about which of these to try first and you’re looking for a property management tool with:

  • A robust, competitive feature set
  • That’s super easy to use
  • With great customer service (including real, live human beings)
  • And other great benefits such as a quick and easy QuickBooks Online integration

… then give DoorLoop a try.

Even better, you can schedule a free demo today to get 50% off your first two months – with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

In other words, you can get the best property management tool for less than the other guys, with nothing to lose.
