accounting

Leverage our robust accounting system to log your income and expenses, import transactions directly from your online accounts, perform reconciliations, set up recurring transactions, and more...

logging transactions


Categorizing transactions

Each transaction can be categorized as a certain type of income (e.g. rent payment), expense (e.g. repair), liability (e.g. mortgage principal payment), asset, equity, gain, or loss. You can also specify that the transaction was for a property or unit/tenant.

Multiple transaction lines

Split a transaction into multiple lines when you want to categorize parts of it separately. For example, an expense charge from Home Depot might be for multiple properties, or a rent payment deposit might be for multiple tenants.

International support

You can specify your currency as well as your date format, so Housters will work for you regardless of whether you're in the U.S. or abroad.

importing transactions


Don't want to log manually?

Set up a Mint.com account and add your online bank, credit card, and mortgage accounts there, then Housters can import your transactions from Mint.

Import what you want

Rather than importing everything from Mint, you can choose which transactions were related to your rentals, categorize them, and choose the property and unit/tenant the transactions apply to.

account reconciliations


Reconcile against your account statements

Reconciliations allow you to ensure that what you logged in Housters matches what your bank account or credit card statements show.

Account reconciliations

recurring transactions


Automatically generate transactions

For routine transactions with fixed amounts such as rent payments, you can create recurring transactions on a set schedule and then Housters will create the transactions for you.

Mortgage payments

If you input your rental property's mortgage terms, Housters can auto-generate mortgage payment transactions for you based on the amortization schedule. This means that Housters can split the transaction into multiple lines and specify the principal, interest, and escrow amounts for you.
