Rentroom vs. Doorloop: Property Management Software Comparison

Making the right choice is imperative when selecting a property management software tool. At Rentroom, we understand that once you choose a software partner, get onboarded, and invite your tenants...chances are you and your business will stick with the product you select for an extended period.

At Rentroom, we believe we have the best product in the market; however, we are also keen to help you make an educated decision when researching and buying property management software.

This short article will discuss the pros and cons of Doorloop and Rentroom. Although many property management software products will have a similar feature set, there are nuances to how companies differ in terms of price, support, onboarding, and more.


Doorloop Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Cloud-based - access Doorloop from anywhere
  • Modern interface.
  • Mobile app.
  • Simple rent payments for tenants.


Cons:

  • Integrations through Zapier (API connector).
  • Additional charges for SMS text messaging and phone calls.
  • Additional fees for bank set up.
  • Newer entrant in property management software space.

Rentroom Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Cloud-based - access Rentroom from anywhere.
  • Modern interface.
  • Lead-to-lease automation
  • Instant messaging for maintenance. Solve maintenance issues faster.
  • Native QuickBooks integration.
  • Simple rent payments for tenants.
  • Separate app for tenants.

Cons:

  • Only able to list to Zillow, Truia, and Hotpads.
  • No trial before buying.
  • No videos on maintenance tickets.

Pricing Comparison

Rentroom

Rentroom starts at $49.99/mo! Furthermore, the company is offering a special where your first month is free(making your first year about ~$45/mo)! Book a demo to see all we offer.

  • Flat pricing - does not scale as you grow.
  • Module-based pricing. Only pay for the features that you need.
  • Free onboarding and product training.

Doorloop

Doorloop also starts at $49.99/mo! However, after you scale past 20 units, you will be subject to per unit fees and additional charges across the board.

  • Scaling prices based on units.
  • No ability to rent by the bed.
  • Paid onboarding and training.


Summary of Rentroom vs. Doorloop

In short, Doorloop is a formidable competitor to Rentroom. While we think they make a good product, we believe aspects of their system are slapped together. Without sound biased, there are several core features where Rentroom outcompetes:

  • Native Integrations: Each integration in Rentroom is directly connected to the destination(QuickBooks, PandaDoc, Twilio, etc.), whereas Doorloop's integrations operate through Zapier(a "middle man" to connect disparate apps).

    As a result, their chosen path makes their integrations far less reliable. Property management software is mission critical for property business. For owner-operators, property managers, and landlords who seek reliability with QuickBooks Online(for example), Doorloop probably isn't the right choice.

  • Communication Center: With Rentroom, you can choose your phone number or port over your existing number. Additionally, every message you send through Rentroom is included. Doorloop charges per message fees can rack up quickly as your portfolio grows.

  • Onboarding & Support: While this is not a product feature, potential buyers can easily overlook onboarding and support. The onboarding process through Doorloop(we've heard) can be hands-off and produce added costs(onboarding fees, fees for adding additional bank accounts, etc.).

    At Rentroom, onboarding is free! We work diligently with our customers to provide the best service and ensure a smooth roll-out across your organization and tenants.

If you are in the market for property management software that:

  • Doesn't create surprises by charging unexpected fees
  • Scales as your business scales for one flat price
  • Pay for the features you need - not by the unit

Don't just take our word for it!

[Rentroom] is easy because it was as if they designed the software with me in mind. It couldn't have been any different if I sat there and said this is the software package I need for my property management solutions. And they said, OK, we have this covered for you.

But if you try to do that without knowing the different eviction laws in Delaware, you could run into trouble when you need to evict a tenant from one of your properties.In Delaware, following the proper eviction procedures is essential.Inadequately following the necessary steps provides the tenant with a defense that they can utilize to justify extending their tenure in your property.
