Cleveland, OH April 12, 2007 () - DIY Real Estate Solutions; announced today the general release of a new web-based software application called MyPortal. MyPortal, designed specifically for managers of residential rental properties, consists of two Internet-based products that allow property managers to deploy property specific web portals for use by their residents and to advertise vacant units through the use of branded
By implementing the resident portal feature, users of DIY property management software can collect rent, process maintenance and service requests, renew leases and allow their tenants to view their balances and payment history, all through a customized community website. With the marketing portal, property management companies can quickly create and maintain individual websites for their apartment communities. Features include online applications, floor plans, photos, directions, and real-time availability pulled from the DIY software and free Internet listings on Google.
Steve Lloyd, CEO of DIY Real Estate Solutions states: By using the same web server infrastructure we provide to users of our property management software, DIY is able to offer landlords and managers of small multi family communities the same portal technology enjoyed by the large and medium-sized managers, but at a price point that makes it attractive to owners and managers with portfolios as small as 25 units. MyPortal leverages Internet technology to provide landlords with a distinct competitive advantage, improve their productivity and enhance their customer service.
Lloyd further states: What makes resident portals so pertinent and important today is the fact that more people are conducting more and more transactions online. The younger, more computer savvy residents do everything on the computer: theater tickets, airline bookings. The new resident lives, breathes and communicates on the computer. That's how we all shop today, for homes, for cars, we look on the Internet. If your current and future residents are online, you have to be, too.
