  • Users can get started with no setup fees.
  • OwnerRez is a great value with a robust set of features that will work for users with only a couple of properties up to those who manage an extensive portfolio.
  • OwnerRez has historically been a stable and reliable platform.
  • No extra fees are charged for additional users.
  • OwnerRez websites practically build themselves and are great for folks who don’t have the time or inclination to have a stand-alone custom site built.
  • OwnerRez frequently rolls out new features, integration partners, and updates. They are committed to continually improving their platform and listening to their users needs.
  • There is an Unofficial OwnerRez Facebook page full of helpful people who are happy to answer questions. Sometimes this is faster than utilizing customer support.


  • There is a fairly steep learning curve to setting up and learning OwnerRez that intimidates some people, and it isn't as intuitive as other platforms.  Once users become familiar with the software this is typically no longer an issue.  If you are easily overwhelmed by technology consider taking advantage of the ProConnect service.
  • Some may consider that it doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app as a disadvantage. Others would say that’s not an issue since the site is responsive and can be saved to your screen like an app.

  • Currently, the telephone support number goes to voicemail and directs you to leave a message or send an email.  It can take 24 hours to receive a reply, but the support is very thorough and will check back to be sure your issue has been resolved.

You can get rental agreements and photo id from the guests (including Airbnb which means you get the guest’s email address). Email and airbnb messaging that can go out at set times. Integrates with many others to easily communicate with cleaners, etc. Reports are good. Finally the direct booking site (the hosted site is just ok but does the job) but the widgets are great if you have your own website.


Software is hard to set up. I quit several times before I finally found someone I could pay to set it up for me.


Once set up, it is extremely easy to use and I can easily set up other properties.

If you have more than 3 properties this is a great software. I have used this software and it has a lot of great functions such as email and texting your guests and being able to set-up automated messages.


This software is really hard to set up and is so not intuitive.


If you have multiple properties this is a good software.
