The benefits of utilizing Buildium for home construction companies are too many to list here. From management being able to see the project all at once and not have to look in different sections. Subcontractors being able to log their hours per project tasks for easy invoicing. Owners with the ability to go on and see how the construction is going, choosing selections, and keeping in contact with management. For bookkeepers the easy integration of Xero and Quickbooks online is fantastic. If you haven't tried Buildium and are looking for a superb property management software, sign up for their free trial and take it for a test drive.

Pros

There are several items within Buildium that by far surpassed other property management companies. The ability to upload subcontractor paperwork and have all the information in one place securely online with reminders set up when expirations or missing information is needed. The ability for everyone with accounts set up to communicate, check on tasks, and proposals all in one place for easy referral. One of the easiest implementations and setups for property management software. But the absolute best thing about Buildium for me anyways is that you can list as much information from sales, tasks, proposals, selections, etc. I truly believe that all companies need to keep as much information as possible on file and with Buildium you can put as much information as you need, place tags for easy reporting, and this information is for authorized users to see. To me, you can never have too much information and it makes is so much easier if you have a person leave and the new hire to move it and look at the information to be brought up to date.

Cons

When I first started working with Buildium I wished that there had been a step by step workflow check sheet because at times I had to go and research if I was entering the data correctly. But that was quickly solved while speaking with Buidium's excellent customer support team members.
Finally, I would recommend a Buildium forum where all users can go on and if they have questions can post it to the forum as another user may have had the same problem.

We entered one property in it with extreme difficulty. Decided not enter any more. For any property the underwriter needs 10 days to make decision and that’s unnecessary. Asking question on the list of owners and who owns at what percent Is not what a software company should know or care.

Pros

There is a training, there is a live customer support although there Is not much help they can offer.

Cons

Extremely complicated to use, or work with. Needs substantial training. There is underwriter which will ask extremely personal questions, more than what your State or IRS will ask (seriously). Definitely not made for commercial property management.

Response from RealPage - Buildium

Thanks for your review. Just for clarification, the fields for ownership percentages is optional, but if filled in it simply helps make owner disbursements easier, dividing them up as per the percentages entered.

I hope that clears things up!

The software is easily adopted and their training and support is top notch. Support responds within a few hours to next day.

Pros

The software is user friendly. Typically there is more than one way to get what you need to do and enter data.

Cons

Sometimes hard to figure out exactly how to make a change and send new leases.

Response from RealPage

Thanks for your review, Scott! We're glad you've had great experiences with training and the support team.

Overall I enjoy using Buildium on a daily basis and find the functions are intuitive, reporting is clear and easy to export to other programs. There are still other Buildium features we have yet to incorporate and look forward to discovering how they may benefit my workflow.

Pros

Clear general ledger and billing features, utilizing tenant payment portal made rent processing much easier, bank reconciliation process is efficient, software was overall easy to learn and use,

Cons

Tenant integration presented some challenges but the overall efficiency gained in processing rent payments was worth the time investment, prepayments can be tricky to master at first
