Are you a landlord or a property manager who manages multiple units, each with a unique lease?
As your business grows, it’s easy to feel that things are spinning out of control.
2 out of 3 commercial real estate businesses we talk to are missing out on lease revenue opportunities. And for some of these businesses, the solution is as simple as implementing a better system of organization. Landlords risk losing thousands of dollars each year by forgetting rate escalations and other important information regarding their commercial leases.
Stay In Control of Your Leases
When dealing with retail spaces, office spaces, or multifamily properties, there’s a lot to keep track of. The more units you manage, the more complex it is to manage everything – and the more likely you are to make mistakes.
Because of that, it’s important to have a good system for managing multiple leases. When you have everything organized in one place, it makes the following tasks easier:
- Remembering renewals, expirations, increases, and other important deadlines
- Knowing the base rent and monthly payments due
- Knowing operating expenses for each unit
- Remaining compliant with necessary regulations
- Keeping track of unit status and lease status
- Understanding your tenant mix
- Keeping track of important clauses in each lease
- Managing operating expenses associated with CAM
- Contacting tenants about their lease
Many landlords use spreadsheets to handle all this information. And that can work just fine when you only have a few units! However, there are several shortcomings when it comes to spreadsheets, particularly as your business grows.
When Spreadsheets Just Don’t Cut It
Spreadsheets can’t send you a calendar alert when you have a deadline coming up.
Unless you’re an Excel wizard, spreadsheets can be difficult to organize and customize to your needs.
It’s not always easy to get a combined view of all your leases at once.
Spreadsheets may be good for numbers, but they don’t make it easy to attach tenant notes, contact information, and the like.
And, with spreadsheets, it’s often too easy to get duplicate entries or fall behind on your record-keeping.
Instead, you’ll benefit greatly from a cloud software that makes it effortless to automate alerts, track the performance of each unit, and assemble all the information you need about your leases in one place.
