Introducing Our New Owner Portal on Buildium

Professional Real Estate Management and Investment Services Inc. is pleased to announce that we are transitioning to a new owner's portal starting July 1st. The new portal will be on Buildium, which offers owners a ton of new and exciting benefits that will make our client's lives easier. 

This new owner's portal will be your one-stop shop for everything you need regarding property ownership. You'll have access to all information for properties, tenants, and maintenance requests. The portal is updated in real-time so the process will be streamlined and much more efficient. Not only that, but you'll get paid faster and have instant access to financial information.

Let's dive deeper into the many incredible benefits you can expect after our transition to the Buildium owner's portal.

Instant Access to Financial Information

You'll have all of your financial information in one spot for instant access, including:

  • Profit and loss statements
  • Contributions and draws
  • Transactions made by PREMIS on your behalf

This financial information will be updated in real-time and can be accessed from any device, so you'll always be up-to-date with everything related to finances.

Easy-to-Use Document Storage System

With Buildium's state-of-the-art document storage and sharing system, you'll always have access to documents related to your investment property, including:

  • Lease agreements
  • Receipts
  • Work orders
  • Property inspections
  • Any other important document

These documents are uploaded to the portal and can be accessed instantly by property owners. If landlords need to upload documents--the process is simple. Once uploaded, the documents can be accessed by PREMIS instantly.

Streamlined Tenant Experience

This portal will also make your tenant's experience more efficient, and allow landlords to have streamlined and instant access to any tenant issues, including maintenance requests.

Tenants can submit their rental payments each month on this portal and you'll be able to access those payments once they're submitted, meaning you'll get paid quicker.

Access to Property Reports

On the owner's portal page, you'll find a "reports" tab which allows you to run different reports in regards to your property. Here are just a few of the reports you can generate with this feature:

  • Budget reports
  • Cash flow statement
  • Balance sheet

The data used to generate reports is updated in real-time so you can feel confident that the reports are accurate with all current information.

Have Any Questions? We're Happy to Help!

We know this is a big change, but it's an exciting one that will make your experience as a property owner much easier. We are thrilled to improve our client's experience and make the entire process more efficient, easier to navigate, and more organized. If you have any questions regarding the transition to Buildium, please don't hesitate to reach out to us so we can help.

COVID-19 and Your Pinellas County Rental Property

Clients and Friends,

 

First and foremost, we hope that you and your family are healthy and doing well. These are challenging and unpredictable times for us all.

We are still operating as normal. We will continue to handle day-to-day maintenance needs as they arise, and we will continue to collect and disburse rent on your behalf. As of right now, we are still maintaining regular office hours.

We are still showing vacant properties as well, however, calls on available properties have decreased significantly. Please understand that if your property is currently vacant or will become vacant in the coming weeks we will do everything within our power to fill that vacancy. How the public reacts to this ongoing and fluid situation is however beyond our control.

Lastly, it is quite probable that we will experience some delinquency in April rent payments by tenants who work in the hospitality industry. Fortunately, they only comprise about 8.5% of the workforce in Pinellas County. Retail employees make up another 13.5%. It is our hope that the current Administration and Congress will work swiftly to help those affected workers, but April 1st is right around the corner.

In the meantime, we’ll do our best to keep you informed as this continues to unfold.

 

Best,

 

Professional Real Estate Management

Landlord Hurricane Prepardness Message

LANDLORD HURRICANE PREPARDNESS MESSAGE

Hurricane season is upon us lasting through October 31st.  Now is the time to prepare.

We recommend to Owners the following:

  1. If you have a property on a treed lot, authorize us to have your trees evaluated for dead wood, roof overhang and general health.  Often with high winds, under kept or unhealthy trees cause property damage. Do it now.  Once the storm approaches the tree services will be busy for months to come.
  2. If you want to rest assured that your tenant has the ability to “board up” your windows, let us get a handyman to measure, cut and supply tenants with boarding and screws necessary to apply the protection. Do it now. Few tenants are going to buy the lumber necessary to protect the windows.  When a storm is approaching it is too late.  Supplies run out fast and handymen and repair people will already be engaged with prior clients or boarding up their own property. We won’t be able to get the job done.
  3. Are you comfortable with the condition of you current roof? If your roof is single and 12 years or older, you should have it inspected for remaining life and potential of leaking under long sustained rains.     

PLEASE SEND US YOUR CURRENT INSURANCE DECLARATION PAGE by MAIL, EMAIL OR FAX.

Hurricane Irma caused damage to approximately 70 of the properties we manage.  The majority of the damage was caused by trees or faulty roofs.

Please help us to help you safeguard your property.

We have sent a detailed message to all tenants, outlining our expectations of them for keeping your property and their property safe.
