Main features of OWNR by RENOSY
1. Revenue/expense simulations
Users can run simulations to visualize changes in monthly revenues/expenses or mortgage balance based on property info and mortgage contract in the app. Users simply set their own costs, such as vacancy risk, capital investment, and fire/earthquake insurance, to check the simulations run by highly experienced real estate agents. As a result, users can easily review their real estate investment plan tailored to their own stage in life.
2. Cash flow management
The app makes it possible for owners to check monthly cash flows, such as rental payment and mortgage repayment. The Company’s MANAGE by RENOSY(*2), a tool developed in-house, uploads revenue/expense information to the app. This makes it possible to plan out tax payments and repair expenses, in addition to being able to see the management fees, mortgage repayment amount, and rent. Other revenues can be added, too, enabling precise checks of cash flows.
3. Portfolio management
Owners can centrally manage the asset info, management info and contract info for the properties they currently own(*3). They can also check monthly revenue/expenditures, such as yield, rent and mortgage repayment amount, along with tenant info for each property. Contracts and other documents, which tend to be troublesome and complicated to manage, as well as payment info required for tax return filing can be managed all in one app, greatly supporting the smart asset management of owners.
4. Proposals of newly listed properties for sale
This feature displays a selection of properties determined by AI and experienced real estate agents for users considering purchasing a new investment property. Users can review a revenue/expense simulation based on the scenario of purchasing the displayed property. Based on this, the app proposes a new asset plan(*4).
(*2) A real estate business support tool developed by GA technologies that manages rental data.
(*3) This feature is not available for properties managed by other companies or certain properties with outdated or no information at all.
(*4) Estimated rounded values due to annual fixed asset tax, urban planning tax, and real estate acquisition tax.
