Landlording, Then and Now
Gone are the days when landlords need to do all the jobs, all by him/herself manually. Before the internet was introduced, landlords have to manually advertise their property listings, sometimes by the use of a typewriter, just to have a prospective tenant. They need to do the listings over and over again, just imagined how many papers, type writer ribbon and inks they had consumed before just to get their advertisement noticed, and had tenants came over their rental properties to check on the place. Once the applicant has submitted their application, they had to provide a credit and background check for themselves. Then the landlord will be preparing the contract or lease and had them keep in a place, where it would not get lost or misplaced.
Once the tenant has already moved in, landlords need to get the rental payments personally, then deposit it to the bank, need to queue and do all those stuff again and again, manually. While the renters need to write to get the landlord notified about maintenance request that needs to be fixed. In some other cases, renters who will pay the rent will be the one to deposit it to the bank, dealing with the long queue and waiting just to get everything done.
