What do you like best?
The software interface is great. You easily move from function to task, report back to function with just a few clicks of the mouse
What do you dislike?
The only complaint I have is that Buildium is perfect for the residential market. The features, data fields, reports, etc. are perfect for the residential property market. We make Buildium work for us in the commercial world... it's not 'perfect', there are some 'data points' that don't get collected, but out of the box it works just fine for us.
Recommendations to others considering the product
We have a small commercial real-estate company. We only manage buildings that we own. With about 10 buildings and a total of about 30 tenants, this is not a full-time job. Buildium takes all of the busy-work from behind the scenes (accounting, billing, collection, communication with tenants, etc.) and automates it. Now, I can focus on acquiring more properties.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I was spending $500-$800 per month on a part-time bookkeeper just to do the books of my small real-estate company. Now? I spend about 2 hours a month in total. It's not just the savings of money, but the amount of time that I save is significant.
