Nomadic has been managing our condo in Capitol Hill for 6+ years. We live abroad so we are grateful to have their on the ground assistance. They have been responsive to our needs and tenants' requests. Jay has particularly gone above and beyond in working with our tenants.

Nomadic Real Estate is a company that really does go above and beyond. I’m currently renting out a home in Georgetown, and having the help of Connor has been a real game changer for me. He takes care of the move-in process and gets any repairs needed at move-in taken care of quickly. Definitely recommend these guys!

I’ve lived in a Nomadic Real Estate-managed property since 2015. The house was lovely, but when we first moved in, the counter top on the island was warped. “Oh no! I thought. I won’t be able to use my kitchen for 2 months till this gets fixed.” Nope. They had it done in 3 days. All of my service requests have been handled as quickly. Very happy with Nomadic!

Nomadic has provided excellent service for the two years I have worked with them on managing my apartment. They are very responsive, professional, friendly and patient with requests. I would highly recommend them for all real estate transactions.

Aubrey was awesome in helping me with my home! She helped me find great tenants that always pay the rent on time and don’t cause any trouble. I’m currently renting a home in Fairfax and as someone who moves for work every 1-2 years and having experienced renting homes managed by different companies here and there, this is the first one I’ve ever left a review for, if that tells you anything about how happy I am. I definitely recommend Nomadic.

What We Deliver
A white-glove experience for complete peace of mind.

We take the most powerful innovative technology and combine it with old-fashioned hard work, to deliver the best client experience in the industry. We handle every aspect of your property, leaving no stone unturned, so you can rest assured that your property is in the best hands.

Our leasing team works 7 days a week to get your property rented quickly. We advertise your listing across numerous online platforms and utilize a streamlined scheduling system to get more showings booked. We kick it up a notch with professional photos and 4k resolution virtual tours, 3D modeling, and floorplans. 

Our goal is to find the best tenants possible for your property. We securely screen tenants online and capture information on employment/income, credit history, rental history, and background checks.

Our turnover team conducts rigorous inspections utilizing 360 photos and comprehensive checklists to document the condition of your property. They will provide strategic value-add recommendations to maximize the return on your investment, and will source competitive bids for repairs and renovations. Our inspectors oversee all contracting through the turnover phase to ensure the quality of workmanship meets our standards.

We custom-built a work order system into our portal. Tenants can submit work orders online, and we typically dispatch a vetted contractor the following business day. Your tenants will also have access to our 24/7 call center for emergency services, so your property is protected around the clock. You will receive real-time notifications any time a work order is submitted, updated, or completed. You can also set a repair cost threshold that fits your unique needs, and we’ll seek approval from you for any repairs that exceed that threshold. 

We collect rent from tenants via ACH direct debit, so you don’t need to worry about collecting paper checks from your tenants. This is the most consistent, reliable, and secure rent collection system available today.

We make it easy for you to file your taxes and deduct your property’s expenses. We’ll provide full financial reports every month which include an itemized Profit & Loss Statement, breaking down all income and expenses for your property at a granular level. Financial Statements are emailed on a monthly basis, but can also be accessed in real-time 24/7 through your online client portal.

We tested every major property management software product including Appfolio, Buildium, Yardi, and more. We didn’t feel that any of these off-the-shelf products provided the level of efficiency and transparency we desired, so we decided to build our own custom software from scratch. We built our client portal to offer real-time transparent insights into your property. You can login to your client portal anywhere in the world and access a full history of work orders, lease information, financial statements, and forms/documents related to your property. 

Did we mention you'll get a 15% discount on your first leasing fee with Nomadic, since you were referred by one of our affiliates?

Enhanced Reporting

Your portal includes a selection of extremely useful reports. Reports are available in the “Reports” section, and are distinct from the financial statements. Unlike financial statements which are static records, Reports are dynamic real-time records that will update with current data every time you view them. 

Scroll down to learn more about Reports:

Navigate to the "Reports" module in your portal:

  • Keep in mind, these reports are dynamic records. They will refresh to display current information every time you view them. 

Enhanced Rent Roll Report:

  • The Enhanced Rent Roll Report will show the rent amount, last payment date, move-in date, lease expiration date, and security deposit amount for each of your tenants. 
  • It will also show a portfolio summary with occupancy percentage, vacancy loss, and more!

Unit Comparison Report:

  • If you own multiple units (or buildings) with Nomadic, you’ll get access to the Unit Comparison Report. 
  • This report enables you to quickly compare financial performance between your units at a glance without toggling between individual reports. 

Income Statement Month-Over-Month:

  • The Income Statement Detail – Monthly Report serves as a month-over-month record of portfolio performance. You’ll see itemized income and expense categories and can track monthly. This report will update with fresh data every time you view it. 

Financial Statements

Financial statements will be published to your portal on a monthly basis. The statements are found in your Documents library, and provide a historical record of all financial performance. The statements serve as a snapshot of financial performance over a given period, and are static documents (unlike Reports, the statements do not update/change in real-time). 

Scroll down for more info about the Financial Statements in your Documents library:

The Documents area contains monthly financial statements:

  • The statements in the Documents are are static documents. They are posted to the portal once a month to serve as a historical record of financial performance.

Understanding the Ledger

Your portal includes a ledger with all transactions. The ledger is populated with data in real-time as transactions flow through our accounting software. Much of this information is also available in the Reports area, as well as the Statements in your Documents library, but the ledger is the most comprehensive resource for diving into the details. 

Please scroll through the sections below to get a better understanding of how to interpret the ledger. 

By default, transactions are sorted chronologically:

  • The date reflected in the lefthand column is the actual transaction date, not the “bill date”. This is the date the transaction was actually processed. 

If you have multiple properties with Nomadic, you'll see the address for each transaction in the "Location" column:

  • You can filter the ledger to look at just one property, all properties, or specific sets of properties. 
  • If you only have one property with us, you’ll just see the ledger for that property. 

The Description column displays the transaction type:

  • BILL: this is an expense transaction, such as for repair costs or management fees.
  • CHARGE: this is a transaction  billed to the tenant, most typically a rent payment. 
  • NACHA EXPORT: this is a credit we processed to your distribution account. This type of transaction is how you get paid! 

The Amount column shows the dollar value of each transaction:

  • Positive Amounts: if an amount is positive, it reflects a transaction that is payable to you. Typically, this will be a rent payment that we collected from your tenants. On occasion, a positive number could also signify a journal entry or credit adjustment. 
  • Negative Amounts:  if an amount is negative, this is a transaction that is either payable to Nomadic or is an amount that has already been paid to you. Typically this will be for repair costs or management/leasing fees. Owner draws (net distributions into your checking/savings account) also reflect as negative amounts, since they have already been paid to you. 

The Account Balance column shows a sum of positive/negative transactions at a given point in time:

  • Account Balance should always equal zero after a net distribution has been processed. When the balance is zero, this means that all expenses have been paid and you’ve received the remainder as net operating income, leaving a balance of zero (meaning: no one is due any money, as all funds have been distributed appropriately). 

Navigating the Propertyware Owner Portal

Your portal includes some extremely useful features that help you understand your property’s financial performance at a new level, with real-time transparency into every transaction.

Scroll through the snapshots below for an overview of portal navigation! If you need more help or have specific questions about using the portal, you can reach out to your Account Manager any time for a screen share. 

You can filter all info by date range or property:

How do net distributions work?

Net distributions keep your accounting clean and simple. Each month we’ll collect rent from the tenants, deduct any repair expenses for the previous month and any management/leasing fees for the current month, and credit the remaining net operating income to your account. 

You’ll receive a statement via email each time a net distribution is processed, and can view all transaction details in your Propertyware owner portal.
