Efficient property onboarding is crucial when managing single-family rental (SFR) or build-to-rent (BTR) portfolios. It ensures that your new properties are integrated into your existing property management system.
To add to this pressure, property onboarding also plays a critical role in establishing your relationship with a new client. If your property onboarding process takes too long or has too many bumps in the road, your client may be left questioning if they made the right choice.
