"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless."

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Sep 1: Rent Collection Software

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM

    There are dozens of services to collect rent in US Dollars online, including Venmo, PayPal, (formerly Cozy), ZRent, and RentHelper. Or should you use Bitcoin? This presentation will explore these options and more.

    We will start by reviewing the pros and cons of digital rent collection. For instance, digital rent collection has a big disadvantage: when you knock on a resident’s door to collect rent in person, you can connect on a personal level and learn what’s new and in need of attention. We’ll discuss this and other things we’ve lost with moving online. But the advantages are numerous: less work, more traceability, and custom payment schedules, to name a few.

    We will explain in-depth:

    • Fundamentals of moving money over networks, including credit cards and ACH.
    • Costs, risks, and effort required with various services like Venmo and PayPal.
    • Which services leave the owner in control of collections during eviction proceedings
    • What changes are coming now that Cozy has been absorbed by

    Attendees will leave
    with an understanding of how money moves in the US and where to learn more about various methods for collection.

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,200 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
