Empowering landlords and renters

George Cen, SEAS’08, co-founded Properly because he personally understands the frustrations of navigating the rental lifecycle. He discovered that all of the rental management software options in the market were developed for property management companies and apartment buildings. For the average property owner who manages a handful of units, the expense of setting up such software or hiring professional property managers can amount to thousands of dollars a year. Due to the cost, landlords often manage these tasks themselves manually which is inefficient and unsafe (lots and lots of paper).

Properly is on a mission to make all aspects of renting simple by taking on each traditional rental activity (listings, applications, tenant screening, and rent payments) and designing a better way to do it. The company’s vision is to be the one-stop shop for landlords and renters by providing the entire suite of rental services (maintenance, insurance, accounting, taxes, legal services, and more) so that their customers are able to do everything on a single platform.

Properly’s products are completely free for landlords. Renters use core features for free and pay for premium features only when needed. Create a free account at!
