Housters 3.0 Release

The 3.0 release of Housters is now up on http://housters.com and will make it to the Google Play Store and iOS App Store in the upcoming days.

I’m excited to announce that the ability to collect rent from tenants is back in Housters! We’ve teamed up with Dwolla to provide a safe and secure way for tenants to pay rent to their landlords while still keeping the transfer fees low.

Simply go to the Collect Rent screen, follow the prompts to setup a Dwolla account, pick a tenant, and send them an invite. A new account will be setup for your tenant and an email sent to them with instructions. They then will be able to login to the website or mobile apps, follow the prompts to setup their Dwolla account and send their rent payment. The rent payment will be transferred into your Dwolla account, which you can then transfer on to your bank account. The cool thing is that a transaction for the rent payment will automatically be added into your Housters account, updating the tenant’s unpaid rent status.

The rent payment transfer is free to the landlord, a small transfer fee of $2 is paid by the tenant.
