Property Management Market Snapshot:
Property management is a software application tool that helps property managers, property owners, real estate accountants, and other stakeholders to manage rental properties efficiently. These properties include commercial as well as residential spaces that the property manager manages on behalf of its owner. This software helps in streamlining day to day tasks of property managers, thereby reducing the overall time and cost invested in managing the real estate business. For decades, property managers/agents, owners, and accountants have used emails for communication and papers and open-source spreadsheets to record financial transactions, inspection notes, and tenant requests. However, with the introduction of comprehensive property management tools, a number of property managers and other stakeholders have shifted toward the software solutions to streamline their real estate business operations. Therefore, the property management market is driven by the growing need among end users to efficiently manage the real estate business. Further, the introduction of the cloud-based deployment model is expected to boost the adoption of property management solutions.


Property management software has several features including property accounting, contract administration, document management, monitoring of occupancy & vacancy, and analytics among others. The property accounting feature of the software helps end-users to track budget, rent, and other payments. The contract administration and document management feature of the software helps in monitoring and managing the leasing contract of tenants. The monitoring of occupancy and vacancy feature of the tool provides insights about the occupancy and vacancy of the property facilitated by the collection of real-time data through IoT sensors. The analytics feature of the software provides data on customer lifecycle, value of monthly rent by state or province, and predictive trend on tenant’s payments. There are two types of property management software available in the market: server-based or on-premise solution and web-based or cloud-based solution. The server-based property management solution can be installed on the system of the end-user. The data is stored on the on-site server and therefore a dedicated IT team is required to implement, maintain, and upgrade the same. On the other hand, a web-based or cloud-based property management solution does not require the end-user to install the software on the computer. End users simply can log in from any system and use the tool. In this case, the entire data is managed by the third-party providers which frees the user from additional IT expenses.


A survey conducted by Buildium (a property management solution provider) in 2018, stated various challenges faced by property managers. The top challenges listed in the survey were related to property maintenance, accounting & bookkeeping, managing tenant’s documents, and managing the property portfolio. To overcome these challenges, property managers are significantly investing in property management solutions. The survey also stated that, as of 2018, nearly 77% (of those surveyed) were using property management software for managing their businesses. End users who have deployed property management software have witnessed a significant increase in their revenue. The software has also helped them to effectively organize tasks, track their finance, and simplify the rent collection process.


The property management market comprises several players who offer various types of solutions. For instance, IBM offers property management solutions equipped with advanced analytics technology. The company’s Watson analytics integrated with the property management solution provides data related to lease and its maturity date, monthly rent and past due amounts, predictive trend of business paying late, and common area of maintenance of the property among others.
