Rentec Direct

Take a look at what we’re currently working on at Rentec. Please share your ideas and stories to help us build a product that best fits your needs.

How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. Month-to-Month Rental Tracking

    Create an option to list "Month-to-Month" (MTM) as a rental lease term so that these will appear separately in the lease expiration report. Some properties are required to be on a current lease while others offer MTM tenancy. Currently the lease expiration does not track MTM or rentals with no lease expiration.

  3. Allow properties to be marked as owner-occupied in some way

    I own two properties with four units total. I currently live in one unit but previously rented it. It would be great if I could mark it as owner-occupied in the property settings so it doesn't show as vacant.

    I know I could set myself up as a tenant, but since I don't pay rent to myself it seems weird.

  5. Don't require custom payee to be saved to vendor list

    Don't save custom payee to vendor list

    New style forms when posting an expense...

    The problem with this is I need to use the old forms because I don’t want to save the payee since I’m only paying them one time. It makes you save it and my list is way longer than I need it. Note: Not liking the new version very much…

  8. Allow a 'Payee' field for the automated rent payment function.

    Allow a 'Payee' field for the automated rent payment function.

    This would avoid the payee field for Management Fees displaying 'NONE'
    and would allow simple tracking for management fees collected.

  11. Multi-Level Expense items

    Like: Utilities, Utilities/Gas Utilities/Electricity Utilities/Sewer.

    If I want to know the heating cost, I don't want the sewer. However, I need them combined for tax purposes.

    I have been doing that for decades with both my real estate software and personal accounting.

  14. Add Date sorting to Search Pane

    I frequently use the Search Pane to find transactions, for example, to find a transaction that I need to edit because the date or amount was entered incorrectly. Usually I am interested in more recent transactions. I would like the ability to click on a column heading in the output table and sort ascending or descending on the column heading, particularly Date.

    Usually I want to see recent transactions so I have to scroll down to the bottom of the table. It would be nice to see the recent transactions at the top. I currently have 2 years worth of…

  17. Add filer for vacant units

    It would be helpful if there was a filter for all vacant properties from the Properties tab. then I could go down each one to post onto Craigslist. Now I have to go to Main screen to see vacant list.

  18. sort deposits shown under undeposited funds

    Under the Undeposited Funds account is the ability to "View Deposits". The order of deposits shown seems to be arbitrary. ANY repeatable order (date of deposit being the most obviously useful) would be better than no apparent sort order.

    I suggest you sort these deposits by date of deposit.

  19. late fees

    If the tenant has a balance because of a utility bill that was just inputted and the tenant pays rent in full it shows up as a late fee for rent. There should be a way that rent is paid then there is no late fees even if there is a remaining balance
