About Ailo

One-third of Australians live in a rental home and one-in-eight own one, but the experience is often, well… not great. Renters have to shout to be heard. Property investors have little visibility or control over one of their most valuable assets. And property managers are shackled to antiquated technology. Nobody is happy. So, we’re rebuilding the $53B property management industry from the ground up with a ground-breaking, data-powered business operations platform that delivers a better experience for everyone.

Founded in 2017, we have a vision to make every home a good investment and every investment a great home. So far, we’ve built the largest property management dataset in Australia and have helped more than 100,000 property managers, property investors and renters work better together on Ailo.
