RentRedi vs Rentec Direct—Which is the best property management software for landlords? 

Well, RentRedi vs Rentec Direct was another amazing showdown. Both property management softwares have a lot of similar features! 

However, we feel RentRedi stands out when it comes to

  1. Tenant features
  2. Pricing plans

Tenant Features for Rental Payments

For example, RentRedi offers tenants the opportunity to report their rent payments to credit bureaus. This not only offers renters an incentive to pay rent on-time, but it also means…you get your rent on time! Plus, rent reporting is a competitive advantage in the rental market—67% of renters were more likely to choose apartments with credit reporting according to TransUnion!

Additionally, our CASH payment fees are only $1, whereas with Rentec Direct it costs the renters $3.99 to process cash rent payments.

Property Management Software Pricing

When it comes to pricing, the cost of Rentec Direct plans change based on the type of plan you subscribe to and how many units you have

However, with RentRedi, our plans are all flat rate—the only thing that changes is the length of your subscription.

For example, if you have 10 units and want a monthly plan, you would pay $39.99 for Rentech Pro and only $29.95 for RentRedi—with ALL features included.

We love a good deal. 😉
