It’s been a busy year for BeHome247! When we weren’t attending and speaking at engaging conferences nationwide, we were busy helping property managers make their operations more efficient and finding ways to transform the vacation rental experience. We’ve learned and shared a lot this past year, and we wanted to take a moment and reflect on some of our key takeaways from 2023.
As we move forward, we’re excited to continue our mission of property management support and innovation. We’re looking forward to helping you navigate the ever-evolving landscape of property management and create even more impactful solutions in the year ahead!
Strategic partnerships mark our journey, each contributing unique expertise, resources, and perspectives. With each new collaboration, we find inspiration and a powerful means to deliver more value and efficiency to our clients.
This past year, we teamed up with some exceptional companies, including Hostaway, Hostfully, and Guesty, to bring even more efficient solutions for your property management needs. These partnerships are poised to provide robust solutions to streamline operations, enhance guest and resident experiences, and unlock new possibilities for property managers of all types.
We understand that property managers operate in a fast-paced, dynamic environment where every minute counts. By optimizing and automating property management tasks, including guest communication, maintenance requests, and contract management, BeHome247 leads the charge for change, empowering property managers to do more with less.
An example lies in BeHome247’s visionary VP of Engineering, Gonzalo Arreche. Integrating with Adobe Acrobat Sign to pioneer dynamic contracts, Arreche digitized and transformed the rental experience and contract management process entirely. Thanks to Arreche’s efforts, prospects can now visit properties with custom access, apply online, e-sign a customized lease, finalize the agreement, and receive access codes in minutes.
In a year of change and growth, BeHome247 remained dedicated to providing valuable property management resources. Through various blogs in our Resources Hub, we tackled pressing issues, offered expert insights, and shared helpful tips to help property managers excel in their roles. Whether providing guidance on technology implementation or ways to improve operational efficiency, we remained committed to supporting every step of the property management journey. A few key areas we concentrated on were:
Women continue to make invaluable contributions to the tech industry, significantly impacting growth and innovation and paving the way for a more inclusive and dynamic landscape. In honor of #womenshistorymonth, we highlighted some of the most influential female voices in the industry. From the Alex and Annie Vacation Rental podcast to LinkedIn conversations with VRM Intel Founder Amy Hinote, this impressive list of dynamic women shared news and provided refreshing perspectives on the property management landscape.
We also took the opportunity to highlight our very own Ali Lauria, BeHome247 Director of Operations. With a track record of onboarding over 90% of the BeHome247 customers, her expert insights on achieving a smooth and effective platform implementation are a testament to her dedication and expertise. As we celebrate the achievements of women in tech, Ali stands as a shining example of leadership and innovation, embodying the progressive spirit of this dynamic field.
Guided by our dedication to ecologically conscious practices and innovation, we strive to reduce energy consumption, conserve water, and minimize waste across the properties and owners we serve. This ongoing journey of environmental responsibility continues to fuel our unwavering commitment to building a greener, more sustainable future.
To support property managers in their sustainability efforts, we highlighted how each piece of smart technology can work together to offer a best-in-class resident experience, making properties more profitable and resulting in significant energy savings. We also emphasized conservation and green alternatives as crucial components for long-term success in the vacation rental industry.
The transformative power of a streamlined tech stack is undeniable, equipping property managers with efficient communication and centralized data management. Although no two businesses are alike, all property managers share a desire for easy-to-use, flexible, and scalable solutions that optimize processes. It’s all about finding simplicity within complexity and making technology work for your operations.
This past year, we identified key components to boost productivity and help property managers maintain a competitive edge. With our handy step-by-step process for upgrading your tech stack, we outlined essential tools designed to optimize operations, drive growth, and thrive in this highly competitive market.
In the world of business, numbers tell the story, and property management is no exception.
As of September 2023, BeHome 247 helped facilitate 1.2 million self-tours, expedited 75 pre-move-in inspections with streamlined work orders, and estimates supporting 800,000 HomeSource turns by year-end. Additionally, Tricon American Homes, a BeHome247 user, has reported an energy cost reduction of 19% on vacant properties since implementing smart thermostats for remote monitoring and adjusting.
With self-tours, automated background checks, income verification, and digital leases, BeHome247 has dramatically improved the leasing process and reduced the time on the market for vacant properties. BeHome247 is committed to delivering results, and this strong track record will serve as inspiration moving forward.
As we look ahead to 2024, our commitment to advancing property management excellence remains unwavering. We’ll continue participating in industry conferences, with planned attendance at IMN Short Term Rental Forum and Build to Rent, the VRMA Spring Forum, and Apartmentalize slated for next year. We will continue to emphasize making property management more efficient and focus on bringing the latest technology to the forefront, ushering in a new era of streamlined property management operations.
Our dedication to your success will continue to drive us to refine our services and produce even more resources to provide you with the most up-to-date solutions. BeHome247 stands resolute in our pledge to deliver innovation, efficiency, and support, and we’re excited to share this remarkable journey with you throughout the coming year. Here’s to a bright future filled with collaborative growth and progress!
