I'd love to see some reports developed within the PM module for companies that run on an "invoice" or "direct remittance" or "co-hosting" model. My business started this way, as an Airbnb "co-host" and has grown very quickly under that model. The property owners are paid directly by the hosting platforms (or directly by guests) and then I send a monthly invoice.
My monthly invoice includes:
1) Commission on accommodation/rent revenue
2) Reimbursements for expenses (housekeeping, maintenance, supplies, etc.)
I never remit payments to the property owners. Since they all get paid directly, they all end up owing me money at the end of each month. I realize this is a fundamental difference from the traditional property management model. I suppose my business model is more as a technology consulting / housekeeping / guest concierge services business rather than a true property management company - but the reports seem easy to develop in theory. Please consider it!
Me too. I manage the listing, but the owners collect the payment. I would like to bill the homeowner for the 20% of bookings
Yes, this will become more and more necessary as people continue to use this model for various different reasons. In my market, and my level of service, I feel way more comfortable controlling the money supply. But for those of us who operate differently, this would be quite useful and shouldn't be hard to develop.
