Appfolio is a leader in online property management software. Often times, when small landlords search online for property management tools, they encounter links to Appfolio. With some research, however, a landlord quickly learns that Appfolio is not for the small landlord.
Appfolio’s Pricing Is For Large Commercial Multifamily
As of 2021, Appfolio’s pricing page indicates that their pricing is at least $280/mo (the minimum monthly fee). Additionally, Appfolio’s “Plus” package starts at $1500/mo. Appfolio designates that service for customers with thousands of units. Clearly, small landlords need not apply. Small landlords generally do not have thousands of rental units, and many are on tight budgets, making cost a consideration.
There Is Free Online Software For Small Landlords Better Than AppFolio
Never fear! Appfolio is not the only option out there. For small landlords, there is free online property manager software. For example, RentalIncomeExpense.com (sign up at www.RentalIncomeExpense.com) offers free income and expense tracking with automatically generated profit and loss reports. Better yet, this free landlord software is easy to use and learn; there are none of the complicated features that Appfolio has that appeals to large multifamily customers.
