Property Management Tech Company Betting on Vegas
Home365 has entered the Las Vegas property management landscape with technology that bundles a multitude of services for a one-rate fee, including management fees, repairs, maintenance, tenant placement and rent loss due to vacancies. Daniel Shaked, founder and CEO of Home365, created the new data and AI-based model as a way to provide a solution for ongoing issues between traditional property managers, property owners and tenants.
“Home365 offers an advanced way to refine communication between parties, improve overall customer service and assist landlords in what can be a very demanding and stressful business,” Shaked said. “This platform will save property owners up to 50 percent in costs and will help restore a sense of trust between renters and property owners.”
Tenants, property owners and service providers communicate through Home365’s own app, which uses intuitive technology to report maintenance issues, schedule repair visits and track the process from beginning to end. The platform also gives tenants the ability to send video of the problem directly to the service provider.
After scheduling an appointment, the tenants can track the movement of the maintenance worker through a map feature to save time and frustration. All fees are covered by Home365 without any additional cost to the property owner. Issues are addressed in a shorter amount of time removing confusion and hassle from the equation.
Las Vegas’ high proportion of out-of-town investors, who own rental properties coupled with the high demand for single-family home rentals, made Las Vegas an ideal place to launch the service. According to Home365, there are only 1,150 homes available to rent in the Las Vegas market.
Bolstering the unique service is Home365’s guarantee to cover rent for vacant properties of up to one year and tenant management program to screen and place renters.
