3.2. Buildings

One of the first thing you have to do when you enter our program is to fill up the basic information about each property.

STEP 1: Define the type of property

The software can support mixed-use properties that include both single residence homes as well as multi-unit properties.

When you create a building you have to define the type of property as either a Single Residence Home or a Multi-unit Building. Multi-unit Building can be of any size - duplex, triplex, 100-unit apartment, etc. There are no limits to the number of units per building.

Please note that multi-unit buildings are not limited to just structures with multiple units such as mutiplexes and apartment complexes, they can include mobile parks, shopping centers, student housing, etc. In these cases the property can be viewed as a Multi-unit Building.

To create a new building, go to the Building menu and then click NewNew on the right menu.
