Recording time spent managing rental properties with RentMindMe

This tutorial article will help you understand how to record the time you spend managing your rental properties using RentMindMe. We’ve made the process as easy as possible, so let’s get started.

Why recording time matters

Let’s take a moment to talk about why recording the time you spend managing your rental units matters. Here’s a quick list of reasons:

  1. Budgeting / Estimating work
  2. Getting a true picture of what it takes to manage your rentals
  3. There could be tax advantages*

*talk to your CPA or tax professional as there could be added tax benefits associated with tracking your time worked.

Information leads to informed management decisions

Having visibility into the time it takes to manage your rental portfolio can help you make informed decisions. Examples of the decisions you might need to make are:

  1. Understanding how much time your “passive” investment takes to manage
  2. Hiring a professional vs. performing the work yourself
  3. Estimating the time it might take to perform a similar task at another rental
  4. Tracking how much time you or partners are spending
