Property Meld is not an app. Property Meld is a web-based software. However, Property Meld is officially more accessible to your vendors via their mobile phones! We’ve created a “Progressive Web Application” that can be downloaded and bookmarked to their phone’s home screen. It is an improved app like experience, including full-screen mode and access to device features like camera and location. The app is live now, and vendors will begin seeing the option to download.
Property Meld is integrated with multiple accounting software to simplify maintenance. We currently have integrations with AppFolio, Buildium, Rent Manager, and PropertyWare. These integrations simplify the process for property managers by removing double entries and improving the invoicing process. With our powerful integrations, your accounting department can save time and ensure maintenance costs don’t fall under the radar.
Property Meld pricing starts at $1.60/unit billed monthly with enterprising pricing up to 50,000 units. Our software automatically scans how many active units are in the system each month, so your billing may change as you add or lose properties. Property Meld is best suited for properties over 100 units because they see the best return on their investment.
Your vendors can use Property Meld, and they will love it!

Property Meld is not intended to replace your PMS software. Our focus is property maintenance, and we are a great addition to your current PMS software.

Property maintenance is the least optimized yet most significant potential for profitability in property management. In addition, property maintenance is one of the most unpredictable aspects of leadership. This is why Property Meld has dedicated ourselves to focusing on one thing and tackling one of the biggest headaches in property management. We like to think of PMS software as a Swiss Army Knife. It has many great tools that help with a variety of things. But if a tree was blocking the road, would you want to use a Swiss Army Knife or a chainsaw to cut your way through? If property maintenance is the tree, Property Meld is the chainsaw.
Workflows are customizable automations you can add to your Meld account to improve efficiency and increase resident satisfaction. Workflows help to automate the mundane maintenance tasks that take time away from your staff. Workflows can help you tackle the most time-consuming procedures and eliminate human error. Some common Workflows include closing a work order in 48 hours if the resident is unresponsive, sending a resident an automated message when they create a Meld, creating automatic troubleshooting instructions, or unassigning a work order if a vendor hasn’t accepted the job in 24 hours.
