Del Val Tech Toolbox

Del Val Tech Toolbox


When thinking about what makes a property management company successful, one will often hear mention of a company’s ability to follow market trends, property improvements, knowledge of the ever-changing legal landscape and more. While these are all extremely important, what is often over-shadowed is the ability to keep up with new technologies and real estate platform tools. Del Val strives to provide you with the best customer service you have come to expect, and integration of multiple technologies and tools. Here are some examples:   

OBLIGO

At the beginning of the year Del Val announced a partnership with Obligo! This platform helps to cut out a prospective tenant’s stress that comes from collecting security deposits while still providing the protection and peace of mind you as an owner deserve. 

  • Qualified tenants have the option to move-in deposit free, paying a small monthly fee to Obligo instead of a large deposit upfront. 
  • At the time of move-out, Obligo allows landlords to bill the tenants for damages. Obligo always pays landlords in full as soon as a claim is made!  
  • Gone are the days running around trying to collect money or needing a tenant to stop by with funds. All move-in funds are collected electronically, directly through the Obligo website or app.  
  • Owner is made whole should there be a security deposit claim.

Zillow 3D Tours

Renting and purchasing a property can be a struggle. Even with advances in camera technologies, it is difficult to truly capture a property and pictures can only go so far. With that in mind, Del Val is implementing the newest feature from Zillow known as Zillow 3D Home Tours. The process is simple and all it takes is a smartphone and the Zillow 3D app. This incredible technology allows Del Val to map your investment properties so that prospects can take a virtual tour in 3D! This is a free to use service and prospects can take the tours right on their computer or mobile devices. 

ShowMojo

Thanks to ShowMojo the prospective tenant’s ability to schedule a showing for a Del Val property is a breeze. No phone tag with the management company or listing agent; prospects can schedule a showing for a property directly online or on their mobile devices. This means the listing agent is more productive, not only with time, but ShowMojo also screens the tenants before the showings!
