In Depth and Valuable Owner Statements for Vacation Rentals With Sage Intacct
For vacation rental property managers, one responsibility matters more than all the others: preparing monthly owner statements. No matter how well a property manager performs in other respects, they can’t expect to keep clients without delivering accurate owner’s statements and timely owner payouts.
Owners rely on these statements to understand what a property manager is doing on their behalf and whether it’s generating the revenue projected. Monthly owner statements summarize performance, so it’s no wonder that owners expect them to be perfect and judge property managers on their ability to supply them. The quality and consistency of these statements could be what compels clients to stay or go.
Unfortunately, preparing monthly owner statements is also one of the most daunting responsibilities facing property managers. It can consume huge amounts of time on a monthly basis and requires a high-level of precision, which grows as more clients come onboard. In many cases, it’s the biggest obstacle to scaling their business: the Achilles heel of the industry. Here’s the solution.
