Getting started as a new landlord can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! If you are wondering how to: find tenants, collect rent, find legal forms, maintain your property and more… Here are 11 of my go-to sites and apps that make landlord life a little easier!
1.EZ LANDLORD FORMS
Having the right legal forms as a landlord is extremely important. From leases, to eviction notices, and contractor agreements, EZ Landlord forms makes it easy to get the forms and contracts you need to cover your bases and landlord legally.

With Rentometer you can analyze the rental potential of a property in SECONDS. Just type in the address, zip code or city and you’ll find out the average rental rate for that area.
Once you’ve purchased your rental property, it’s time to get it rented! With AVAIL you can list your property for viewing, accept applications, do background checks, get leases signed and accept rent, all in one platform. No property manager needed with AVAIL!
Your tenant just paid rent- Woo! Now what? Well, collecting rent is great until it’s tax time and you have to dig through tons of documents to figure out your accounting. Baselane makes it easy to keep track of all rental related income and expenses, plus they have banking, rent collection, analytics and more.
Handy is like the Uber of cleaning service…and furniture assembly…and plumbing work…and painting…you get the picture. With Handy you can book “handyman” services right from your phone. I love the ease of the app and have been a Handy customer since 2015!
Turno is a must have app for Airbnb Hosts! With Turno you can find cleaning professionals who are actually trained to do short term rental turnovers- and we all know that’s a special skill!
7. LAWN GURU
Lawn Guru is like the Uber of lawncare services! It’s super easy to use and I’ve found that the prices are really competitive as well!

8. SECOND NATURE
Changing your air filters every 3 months not only improves air quality, but it extends the life of your HVAC. And we all know that HVAC systems are expensive!!! Remembering to buy air filters can be a pain, that’s why I love Second Nature’s air filter subscription!
9. ALL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
10. STEADILY INSURANCE
Landlord insurance is a must! Try Steadily Insurance for fast affordable landlord insurance. I’ve been using them for 3 years now and have no complaints!
11. ARMADILLO HOME WARRANTY
What I love about Armadillo, other than the price, is that they have the option for you to use your own service provider. What most people don’t like about home warranties is that they often sound out service providers that aren’t so great. With Armadillo you can use a service provider you know and trust, and Armadillo will reimburse you.
