RentRedi vs Avail — Who Came Out on Top?
When it comes to battling it out for the best rental payment software, RentRedi vs Avail is a tough match-up! Both options for property management software offer many great features and services!
Where we see RentRedi really standing out is the types of rent payment options available to tenants (ACH, card, and cash — a feature that allows tenants to pay their rent with cash options via the RentRedi app & Chime payment accounts) and the lower fees.
For all of RentRedi’s subscription plans, your tenants’ rent payment processing fees are only $1 for ACH or 3.1% plus $0.30 for card payments.
However, with Avail’s first subscription plan, your tenant pays $2.50 per bank transfer and a 3.5% processing fee is added to tenant payments regardless of your subscription plan. To lower the fees for an ACH payment, you would need to upgrade to their Unlimited Plus plan.
Additionally, while Avail offers a limited free plan or an unlimited plan where you pay $5 per unit/mo, RentRedi’s plans are a flat rate with unlimited units, tenants, and teammate accounts so you don’t have to pay more for owning more properties!
How cool is that!
