Did you know that our Springs luxury apartment communities offer online rent payment? With just a couple of keystrokes or mouse clicks the money is on its way, any time of day or night.
If you're still paying your rent by check, here are some great reasons why you should hop on the digital bandwagon.
As with many other online functions such as banking and shopping, this is by far the number one benefit. There's no more remembering to write a check and put it in an envelope. It's also perfect for procrastinators because you can literally wait until the last minute and still be on time.
Whenever there's a hard copy such as a check, there's a possibility of it falling into the wrong hands. With online payment, the funds are never in anyone's hands.
In addition to eliminating checks and stamps, online rent payment does away with the need for receipts, statements and reminders.
4. Credit Card Rewards
If you have a credit card account that includes airline mileage or another type of reward program, think how quickly the points will add up when you're using the card for your largest monthly expense.
There's one footnote to this method: be sure to take the cash you have budgeted for your rent and pay the card off in full each month. Racking up interest charges will quickly nullify any benefits you may be earning.
5. Financial Organization
With online payment, your rent history is automatically tracked and viewable on demand. You don't have to remember to enter checks in a register or request a copy from your bank if there's a mix-up.
It's all too easy for time to get away, and before you know it the rent is past due. Set up automatic payment and the first of the month becomes just another day.
We want you to spend less time on chores and more time on fun! Our on-site management team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about online rent payment.
