I've been involved in the property management industry for right around 10 years. I've seen it grow and change through those years and the push for education grow stronger. While following industry bloggers, I stumbled across the Landlordology blog. This blog is especially useful for landlords who are trying to figure out the ins and outs of attracting and screening tenants, maintaining properties, and complying with the legal regulations that govern the landlording / property management industry.
Today, something exciting is happening for Landlordology! They have been acquired by Cozy, a company dedicated to make it easier to process rental applications, screen tenants, accept rent payments and more.

SAN FRANCISCO and PORTLAND, OR - January 7, 2014 - Cozy, the company that makes renting easy for everyone, announced today that it has acquired Landlordology, LLC., a company in the Washington, D.C. area. Landlordology provides helpful guides, practical advice and useful resources for do-it-yourself Landlords and residential Property Managers – especially those with 50 rental units or less.
Cozy and Landlordology are perfectly aligned with an unwavering goal to provide simple, high quality tools to both landlords and renters to make the entire rental lifecycle not only safer and easier, but actually a pleasure. Together, they will continue to support small landlords and property managers in successfully managing their rental properties, building wealth, and keeping their tenants happy.
Since January 2012, Landlordology has experienced 20-30% growth in traffic every month from landlords and renters looking for answers. Landlordology founder Lucas Hall said, “I set out to raise the quality of landlords by providing original in-depth articles, guides, and practical tips from my own experience. Landlordology has been able to build a vibrant community of both landlords and renters who really care about the industry.”
2014 will see expansion of Landlordology educational offerings to both landlords and renters, as well as tighter integration into Cozy. The real-world expertise that Landlordologybrings to Cozy provides essential rental information and practical know-how, and makes Cozy an even more uniquely valuable resource for landlords and tenants.
