Looking for a LandlordMax review that you can trust? Join us as we tear down Landlord Max and reveal what we like and dislike about it.
Despite LandlordMax's wide range of useful features, it
remains surprisingly easy to use. This is due to its clever which puts the basic features upfront, leaving advanced ones in the background.
To show you what we mean, let's take a closer look at the "Tenant" tab (see screenshot below). Once you click on it, it will allow you to enter basic tenant data such as their personal particulars and contact information.
If you're a power user or someone likes to micro manage, you can drill down to the sub-categories (outlined in yellow below) where you can key in detailed data such as occupants, employer or even their vehicles:
What really makes LandlordMax shine is its unmatched report generator. With the click of a button, you can churn out over 100 different reports. While the creation of reports is a standard feature of most property management programs, no other software comes close to the might of LandlordMax.
While even first time landlords should have no problems figuring out this simple-to-use software, we do appreciate the wide selection of help and customer support available. The user manual is well written and comes with screenshots and clear step-by-step instructions.
As always, it's time to discuss the negatives for our LandlordMax review.
While LandlordMax does produce excellent and detailed reports, the reports are all in numbers and figures. We are being picky here but it will be even better if we can generate graphs and pie charts for reports. This will make life easier for people who are uncomfortable with numbers - This issue has been fixed (see "Update" below).
Update: With version 6.05 and later, you can now generate helpful pie charts and bar graphs with a click.
There is no auto-sync or multiple login functions for LandlordMax Property Management Software. In plain English, it means that your rental property data is stored offline, making it a bit more troublesome to share it with others or change computers. That said, moving your property data around is simple - LandlordMax allows you to copy and paste saved data between computers.
If you are managing your rental properties with other people... or want a quick and easy way to access your rental information on the move, you should consider going for a top-rated online property management program such as Buildium.
This is more of a wish list item rather than a complaint but it will be perfect if LandlordMax can actually link up with bank accounts so that a landlord can send and receive payments directly from it. To be fair, this feature is usually only found in customized property management software that can easily cost more than a thousand dollars.
To sum up our LandlordMax review, we can safely conclude that this is one of those rare property management programs that actually over-delivers. For the reasonably low LandlordMax price of $165, you get a complete set of powerful features that can handle nearly all rental issues.
We were also pleasantly surprised by how simple it was to use given its huge list of functions. You will be able to use most of the features from day one without a manual... and as you grow more comfortable with it, you will uncover the more advanced functions that is going to make your life even easier.
If you're looking for a robust software that's going help you manage 1 to 50 rental properties with ease, then we highly recommend LandlordMax.
