Two roles come under the application, which is owner and tenant. We can put our property or build for tenants when logged in as owners.
There are features to add specific parts of the building that the owner plans to keep on rent for tenants. He can rent his parking, storage, and apartment if the owner wants.
In Canada, people used to live in parking and storage since it will be easy for tenants to get homes cheaper than other apartments.
Plenty of filters and expectation forms help tenants get the best and most accurate properties to get expected property.
With the picture and video upload feature, owners can upload photos and videos of properties, saving tenants and owners time, money, and effort. The video feature lets users get basic information and a property tour.
The owner could mention the amenities that will be provided with the property so the tenant could figure it out according to his requirements.
By managing paperwork and agreements, there will be trusted sources for tenants and owners, which will give them relief. Also, many more efforts will be saved because an automated system takes data automatically for existing data.
There is a feature of receipt generation for owners to send digital receipts to tenants, which they can keep as a record over the application. Also, it will help them with tax consumptions.
Those owners who believe in hard copy receipts for such tenants' mobile app has the feature to scan that receipt by which OCR will read the receipt and fetch data from that scan, saving tenants time to enter data manually.
Initially, using this application and its features makes it easy for tenants to approach owners, and for owners, it's easy to get tenants.
Between tenants and owners, initially, there were brokers, and due to this platform, now these two parties can communicate and do transactions without any brokers, so their charges are also cut off.

With digital payment, it will be easy for tenants to send and owners to receive money and keep track of it securely.
