Q1: What is the process if I have a property list with you?
First phone Call
We want to understand your needs and short and long-term goals for your property. This phone call also gives us the chance to answer all questions or concerns you may have with short term rentals and exactly how we work.
During in-person property viewing, we will analyze the unique aspects and needs of your property, and provide recommendations regarding the interior, furniture, kitchenware, and other guest amenities required for a flawless guest experience.
Each property is unique, and we want to highlight what features make your place stand out. Once your property is ready to do go, we professionally stage it, and take professional photos to begin marketing your rental through our online travel partners.
Keys and information
During this process we will collect 2 sets of keys for the property and gather all the essential information that guests need to know, from Wi-Fi details to how to turn on your stove, and location/access to amenities, to ensure a comfortable stay in your home. You can never have too many details for guests.
After we get a better understanding of the property, we’ll develop a marketing strategy for each booking platform to create optimized and transparent listings. Once the listings are created, we will provide you with the login info to the relevant platforms.
Strategic pricing is the key to maximizing your revenues, and our pricing analysts will monitor and adjust your pricing on a daily basis to keep our rates and restrictions competitive, while maximizing income potential.
All incoming messages will be handled by our experienced team. Our booking agents will handle all guest inquiries from initial contact to check-out. During the communication process, our team will vet guest profiles, find out the nature of their stay, request ID verification, and if necessary, verify credit card details.
