Macbook Pro owner Looking for Rental Property Software

Does Quicken make a Mac version for Home and Business? I have a Macbook Pro. If not, any recommendations on software to purchase. Or should I purchase a windows based computer?

    No, Quicken HB&R only runs on Windows. You could use a Virtual Machine on your Mac or buy a Windows computer.

    It's software that emulates a Windows computer on your Mac and allows you to run Windows programs. There's also Crossover that will run Quicken Windows on a Mac without purchasing a copy of Windows.

    Depending on your circumstances, you can use standard Quicken product to manage rental property cash flows. I did so for many years, particularly if you do not need to manage Communications with tenants. If you use a property agent then all you need to track is financials inflows and outflows which can be done with standard accounts. PS. for disclosure I am not using Mac version but I have never used the specialised 'rental property' function in Quicken as I have the Canadian product which does not have it. Just need a set of rental income and expense categories, as well as a tag created for each property to improve reporting.
