If a prospective tenant visits your office looking for a list of available rentals, complete with photos and details, Rentec Direct landlords and property managers can now provide one!
A new feature from Rentec Direct offers the ability to print out an available property report with filtering for criteria such as maximum rent and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The report also includes a checklist for features like wheelchair access, age 55+, washer / dryer hookups and a ton of other selections.

Establish the Property Search Criteria
To begin, visit each property’s marketing info page and select the Search Criteria that best describes its features and location.
It is important to complete the search criteria for each property because this is the information the system uses to create a report of available rentals. Also, visitors to your online listings page can perform their own search to find properties meeting these requirements. The end result is better matching of potential renters to their perfect rental.
Create an Available Rentals Report
Visit the Reports tab and select Misc. Reports. At the top, click Available Units. You will be presented with a filtering list to show only the properties that match the items you select.
To show all your properties, don’t select any filters. You also have the option not to show thumbnail images, in order to list more properties on each printed page.
You also have the option not to show thumbnail images, in order to list more properties on each printed page.
Once you have selected the specific listing criteria or choose to generate a report of all available listings, the resulting report page is suitable for printing and presenting to walk-in prospective tenants. Or, it can be emailed using the icon images in the upper right corner of the report.
With improved property search criteria and a visually appealing Available Rentals Report, your renters will have a much easier time finding the property that best suits them.

Hi Viken! I’m a new user of Rentec since May and am really loving the software! There are so many great features and functions – that it has made my property management so much easier – except for one thing that is quite a surprise to me and may end up being a deal breaker. One of the main reasons for using a database is to be able to filter your data and do bulk actions on them. I am a bit sadden and dismayed that Rentec does not have the ability to do bulk actions! It seems that any change I need to make, I must on each individual file, click the edit button, make the change and save. With this reality, all the time I’m saving in other areas is eaten away by having to edit hundereds of records each month. Is this an oversight that you plan to fix? Is bulk actions on the list to be added to the program. I’m sure hoping so as all the other major features are there – but this one thing is hard for me to overcome. A database without bulk actions isn’t really a database! Thanks for all you’ve done to make this software available. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kristy
