An essential part of your property management business is making sure that each property in your portfolio is well-maintained and safe.

Ideally, you’d place flawless tenants in every unit and never have to worry—but that’s just not how the rental business works: Even applicants with spotless credit reports and background checks can struggle keep properties clean and livable.

What that means is that you have to hold each tenant responsible for every wall scuff, floor mark, or rip in the carpet. But if you’re just working from memory, how will you know for sure that the crack in the bedroom window wasn’t there before a tenant moved in?

What you need is an easy-to-use tool to keep tabs on all your properties.

We’re happy to announce that thanks to a new partnership between Buildium and the creators of the Happy Inspector App, HappyCo, it’s never been easier to do just that.

Happy Inspector, one of the best mobile inspections apps on the market, is now fully integrated with Buildium, so you can perform an inspection, create a report, and sync all of your data in both apps automatically.

Buildium Property Inspections make it truly simple to conduct home and apartment inspections, because all of your Buildium unit data automatically appears in the Happy Inspector app. Finalized reports will sync back to your Buildium account, where you can view them, share them, or use them to create work orders.

Here are a few other features you won’t find with other mobile inspection solutions:

  • Dedicated apps for iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets
  • The ability to perform inspections without cell service
  • Dozens of inspection report templates to choose from
  • The ability to create custom report templates
  • Unlimited users (any staff member with a Buildium account can login to Happy Inspector)

Want to see how it works? Check out these screenshots for a preview:
