Whether you’re on the board of a self-managed association, or you’re a property manager with community associations in your portfolio, there’s a tool that can make your job easier: property management software.

In fact, most property managers—85% according to Buildium’s latest Community Associations Industry Report—already use property management software to help achieve their goals.

If this is the first time you’re shopping for management software—or even if you’ve been using software for other parts of your business, such as leasing and accounting—you may not know exactly what tools you need, or where they can help the most.

We asked some of our association management customers about their experience using property management software, how they matched their needs with specific tools, and features that have saved them the most time, money, and stress.

Here are the five most important questions to ask before you invest in property management software and how the community association managers we spoke to addressed each of them.
