About Avail

Avail is a rental property management system for landlords which offers tools for finding tenants, advertising property vacancies, pre-screening applicants, carrying out credit history checks, processing payments, signing lease contracts, and more. The cloud-based platform is designed for landlords with less than 10 units, but users are able to add additional properties for an additional fee. Avail helps landlords to advertise their vacant units, request rental applications and credit reports, sign leases, and collect rent, all online from one platform.

When searching for tenants for vacant properties, users can utilize Avail’s renting listing creation tool and connections with third party property rental websites such as Zillow and Trulia in order to gather leads. Avail automatically publishes listings across platforms and any potential tenants can apply online via a custom application. Within the landlord portal, users can schedule property viewings with potential tenants, ask pre-screening questions, and request renter profiles, history, or credit checks. Avail integrates with TransUnion to gather reports on tenants’ credit, criminal background, or eviction history.

Landlords can also use the Avail platform to generate leases and contracts, by customizing the pre-built, state-specific templates, and add in any custom clauses, attachments, or rules. The electronic signature capture functionality allows tenants to sign contracts online, and payments can also be processed online within Avail for fast and secure rent payments. Day-to-day operations such as maintenance and tenant communications can be managed within Avail, with tools for tenants to report issues, request maintenance, and track progress on repairs.

Great software for small scale landlords

Reviewed on 12/7/2019

Overall, I love Avail and don't see any reason to use another software.

Overall, I love Avail and don't see any reason to use another software.

Pros

I use this software to keep track of just two properties, and I like it because it's very affordable for small landlords like me and still provides all of the features I want from a professional property management software.

Cons

I wish the billing system could be more flexible. For instance, there doesn't seem to be an easy (from-the-dashboard) way to mark an invoice as paid from my end if a tenant gave me a check instead of using the system.

Response from Avail

Hi Julia!

Robert here. I'm one of Avail's Community Managers, and I wanted to follow-up to say thank you for being a valued Avail user. Furthermore, thank you for leaving such a thorough review of Avail!

We are making a lot of changes to the platform (all exciting updates that members have asked for), and a review like yours really helps our team to move the product in the right direction.

I've personally made note of the invoice issue, and while you can achieve this from directly on the payments page, I still understand that it could be a little bit more straightforward. If you'd like, please feel free to send this along with any other constructive feedback over to me ([email protected]). I'll definitely get this over to my Product team!

Thank you so much for the honest review and keep in mind that we're always here as a resource for you! :)

Kindly,
Robert B.

Avail is great. Working with affiliate sites -- is non productive and a waste of time. TIME IS EXPENSIVE. I don't have time to deal with sites that it is impossible to have contact the managers. IT'S very frustrating for me and the people who are trying to contact me. People keep clicking on every picture that's nice and then have no idea who I am when I respond to them. I would much rather just deal with Avail -- and not have to put up with the aggravation of dealing with the others. STRESS LIKE THIS TAKES A TOLL.

Pros

I hate this software. It's clearly not customized for Avail ... It keeps saying things like .... "what do like about this product. PRODUCT?????? Avail IS NOT A PRODUCT!! IT'S A SERVICE. They're not selling beans, people.

Cons

The connections with other rental agencies pretty much suck. I got emails from people on affiliate sites, stating that my responses to them got cut off by there software and were useless. I think "Hotpads" was the affiliate. The thing that I hate about this software is the the inflexibility of responses. I have one bedroom for rent in a fabulous four bedroom townhouse. These is no way to convey this due to inflexible auto sites' programs.

Dishonesty Use of Personal Information

All it takes is one dishonest act to steer me away from a company. After reading reviews of Avail, I decided to try using it for one of my properties. I have a Google number that I use for business because I do not want business calls on my personal phone. When I placed my first ad for a property, I received the message about not being able to prove my identity with a VOIP number. I absolutely understand this. So, I went ahead and entered my personal number to prove my identity. I was given the usual “We will not share your number with…bla bla bla.” Just imagine how infuriated I was when I learned that my personal number was now part of my public ad on Zillow, Hot pads etc. This is unacceptable.

Pros

Looked very useful at first. Did not have enough time to evaluate.

Cons

Misuse of personal information. Dishonesty.

Response from Avail

Hi Kevin,

Robert here. I'm one of Avail's Community Managers, and I wanted to follow-up to say thank you for being a valued Avail user. Furthermore, I wanted to apologize for any difficulty you've experienced using your account.

As you've noted, we do require a real phone number in order to verify the user account. Still, I do sincerely apologize if it wasn't made clear that a different company contact number can be entered within your account settings; once that company number has been entered, that is the number that is syndicated to the partner listing sets.

I'd love to hear more about the issue that you ran into. Please email me ([email protected]), and we can get a follow-up call scheduled.

Thank you so much for the honest review and keep in mind that we're here as a resource for you.

Kindly,
Robert B.

I had a small problem when I accepted an application from a tenant. Somehow they made a duplicate application. But avail customer service jumped right in and helped the tenant and myself to resolve it quickly. I've asked for technical help a couple of times and they always get back to me shortly.

Pros

I can easily see maintenance request previous leases and a payment history then I'm able to print off for taxes. The software is just easy to navigate.

Cons

Nothing. Everything has gone well. I can't say I've had any issues that would be negative in over a year.

Response from Avail

Hi Allyson, thanks for the kind review of Avail. We love to hear that you've had a smooth experience. We've put a lot of thought and time into developing resources for landlords and renters nationwide, and are super thrilled to hear that not only have our maintenance tool and lease templates been helpful, but also that you're finding value in our payments tool and accounting features. (We really want to make things easier for when tax season comes around!) Please let us know if there's anything else that we can help out with. Always happy to be a resource for you! Kind regards, Robert B. - Community Manager @ Avail.co

Pros

So far it great... there is a learning curve like any other program

Cons

I recommend a video ICON in the sections of user's input areas providing a pop-up to video view allowing the user stay on page and ease of use. 2nd I wish I could create customize URL. 3rd Wish I code generate a HTML code allowing to put on my other websites direction to landing page for the property.
