Part of the RealPage OneSite leasing solution, Prelease Management provides student housing operators with the real-time prelease performance reporting that drives results
(February 25, 2013) — RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP), today announced the launch of Prelease Management, a performance reporting tool for RealPage Student Living. Prelease Management automates the goal setting and reporting activity for student housing owners and operators, accelerating the management and decision-making process with real-time prelease performance reporting.
As anyone in the industry will attest, managing student housing is not without its own unique challenges. Operators of student housing properties have to re-lease the majority of their assets on an annual basis, and in a very short period of time. Setting goals for that narrow window and monitoring progress against them is an ongoing preoccupation for student housing property owners and managers. With RealPage’s Prelease Management solution, student housing owners and operators can now run real-time goal performance reporting on crucial key performance indicators (KPI), including future occupancy, traffic, floor plan leases, renewals, and unit leases.
“Student housing has some of the most demanding operational needs in the multifamily industry,” explained Dave McKenna, vice president of Student Living at RealPage. “The ability to effectively manage the prelease cycle and the annual turn is the defining characteristic of a successful student housing operator. The automation RealPage now offers in Prelease Management will provide our clients the ability to compete more effectively in this hyper-competitive space.”
Through RealPage’s exclusive Student Goal Set Calculator, student housing clients can now automatically establish future occupancy based on traffic, leasing and renewal assumptions. Goals for each leasing season are then summarized and managed in a concise user portal, and as new information is gathered, revised goals can be set and managed.
“We see this sort of process automation and management reporting that RealPage is bringing to the market with Prelease Management as essential to our continued growth strategy,” said Bob Clark, president of Peak Campus. “We’ve worked closely with RealPage in developing this new capability here at Peak, and we’re looking forward to its evolution as an indispensable student housing tool.”
