Miami, Florida – May 31, 2023 – DoorLoop, the all-in-one property management software automating everything from listing units to accounting, today released its Unlocking Growth Potential in Property Management: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Role of Technology report, which shows that nearly half (44%) of respondents’ biggest pain point surrounds the management and growth of their portfolios. Landlords and property managers from around the country are spending too much time on administrative tasks––such as collecting rent or handling tenant applications––taking them away from more critical growth-related tasks. The report also shows that 23% of respondents say backend accounting is the most time consuming part of their business.
“Managing rental properties is a challenging job, to say the least,” said Ori Tamuz, co-founder and CEO of DoorLoop. “But this is an important source of income for individuals across the nation––whether it’s a full time job or supplementing high costs associated with rising inflation. When outdated systems make it challenging for property managers and landlords to manage their units, it trickles down and poses problems for tenants themselves, disrupting peoples’ lives and livelihoods. We’re revolutionizing property management technology to reimagine the rental experience for everyone involved. Our goal is to save our members time, help them make more money, grow their portfolios, and most importantly, provide better outcomes for their tenants.”
Real estate––especially the rental market––has been a historically manual industry; one often associated with a lack of consistent communication between tenants and landlords, and back-and-forth negotiations that can cause friction. While adjacent industries have made leaps in their digital transformation journeys, property managers and landlords continue to find themselves wholly responsible for nearly all of the administrative tasks related to rental property management.
Proptech, or property technology, optimizes the way people buy, sell, research, market, and manage a property, providing robust alignment between real estate needs and technology. Proptech is the new disruptive power and innovation driver combining all of the tools needed to make property management seamless, and the industry is expected to grow 15.8% from 2023 to 2030. DoorLoop’s proptech solutions provide efficient and effective interactions between landlords and tenants; fill vacant units faster; manage backend accounting systems; tackle maintenance requests in record time, and more.
