Furnished M2M and Short Term Management

Take advantage of the new and growing market for furnished rentals. We regularly compile market data, subscribe to an aggregator site that merges calendars and opens package opportunities, maintain staff for day to day management and follow up services to turn your unit so you can put the concerns with the daily tasks to bed.


RentChek is perhaps the most sought after offering we make. It is designed to provide very cost-effective rent collection and banking service. Legal notices are sent to the tenant and owner if the rent is not paid. It is essentially a servicing function that we monitor instead of you. You manage your own maintenance and accounting. Legal services are available for further action.


BirdEye service is a camera installation service you monitor on your phone. We do the setup, you use it. Boost the security in around your property with well-placed cameras.


ElectLock is the installation of keypad lock of your choice. One or more programmed and installed. Do away with keys and enjoy ease of entry. Coordinated programming for apartment complexes makes it easy for all tenants to access common areas but maintain the individual access security.


A complete, stand-alone, web-based work order system that offers the best, high end system to manage your work load no matter your business. Compare to any others and see for yourself. Like all web-based products offered by HMS Companies Inc., MaintainWare is a fully supported system where training and consultation is included with your monthly subscription.


This service is a combination of RentCheck and MaintainWare, our web-based maintenance delivery system. This is a highly integrated front and back end system that allows your tenant to send a maintenance request to you in email and records the information in a highly integrated database. You can print a work order for your maintenance person or auto- forward for execution. You can keep track of your work, look back to minimize duplication, and support other tasks like evidence in court. Invoicing, labor timesheets, job costing and efficiency studies are at your fingertips. Choose the level you want to fit your budget.
