Whilst we’re all for taking your holiday home into your own hands, managing a rental property requires careful attention to detail, heaps of organisation, and sometimes to be quite honest, time and energy that not all of us have. Perhaps it’s time to down tools and step away from the ‘do it yourself’ operational model. As a holiday home owner, learning which tasks you could potentially outsource or automate could mean more time freed up in your busy schedule, and maybe even a little more money in the bank. So here it is - our top 5 tasks where DIY need not apply.
It’s no secret that the British holidaymaker loves a sun-drenched summer holiday destination. In fact, it’s as simple as sun, sea and sand for many amongst the Vitamin D deprived masses. The icing on the cake, you ask? A swimming pool by which to lounge in languor and top up the tan without even having to leave your rental villa. It’s also widely known that guests are willing to pay a price premium for this luxury. So if you’ve got it, you’d better flaunt it. Check out our top tips to ensure that you’re making a splash with your rental property’s pool.
Let’s face the facts already - unless you go off grid to shack up in some far-flung corner of the world in total isolation, there is little escape from the influence of social media on modern life. In fact, whether you like it or not, these newfangled platforms are one of the most powerful means for a business to independently connect with its audience. So whilst you might protest setting up a personal profile in the fear that you’ll become a sitting duck for estranged family members and exes, it cannot be denied that a social media page for your rental is a great way to boost bookings.
