In this blog post, we will cover how you can set up your properties in SmartRentOnline.
After signing up as a landlord, when you log in to SmartRentOnline.com, you will see the ‘Home’ as shown in the above. From here, you can click on the ‘Add Property’ drop-down menu.
When you click on this drop-down menu, you will notice that there are three types of properties that you can choose from.
House is a property type that can only have one tenant. So, if you have one property that is rented out to one tenant, you would choose House as your property type.
Apartment Building is a property type that can contain Apartment Units. If you have a property that is rented out to multiple tenants, Apartment Building is a good choice as the property type.
Property Complex is a container that can contain any property types – it can contain Houses, Apartment Buildings, or even another Property Complex. Because of this flexibility, it is really easy to organize your properties the way you want. It is very much like folders in Windows where you can create many folders on different levels to organize your documents.
In this blog post, we will show you how you can set up an Apartment Building. When you select Apartment Building from the drop-down menu, you will see a screen like the one shown below.
After filling in the form, click ‘Add’.
Now, you have created an Apartment Building under Home. From there, you will click on the name of the Apartment Building that you have created.
Please note that it lets you know where you are by showing you the location. In the screen above, you are under ‘San Francisco Apartments’.From there, you will again click on ‘Add Property’ drop-down menu and then select Apartment Unit.
As you can see, most of the entry fields are pre-filled based on the information captured in the Apartment Building. Here, we will enter ‘Unit 101’ as the Name and 101 as the Unit Number before we click on the ‘Add’ button.
Now you will see that you have successfully created an Apartment Unit under the Apartment Building that you have just created.
If you need to change any of the information you have previously entered, you can click on the down-arrow icon and then select ‘Edit’.
Hope you were able to follow this blog post and set up your own properties. In the next blog post, we will show you how you can set up your tenants.
