The Starter plan is meant for users with basic property management needs. Think tenant screening, collecting payments, recording expenses, and basic reports. You will still be able to track tasks and request electronic signatures, but you won't be able to limit access when adding users, advertising online, doing bank reconciliation, or fully communicating with your tenants through DoorLoop.

Review the full list of feature differences between the Starter, Pro, and Premium plans below.

  • Check Printing - DoorLoop offers customizable check printing to pay your owners, vendors, and even tenants. (Details)

  • Work Orders - While you can still create and use tasks, work orders allow you to connect a vendor, track owner approval, and add parts and labor costs. (Details)
