How We Charge So Little
You probably know that there are managers in your area that charge a high commission rate for handling your vacation rental home. We understand. We have worked for them, started and ran our own rental agency under this structure for over 16 years and since sold it. We have also rented our own vacation rental home, stayed at vacation rental homes as guests and understand it all from every angle. So we have come up with what we believe is the perfect just-right combination of owner / manager responsibility that enables us to provide what owners need and allow them to save thousands of dollars.
So you might be asking what you would need to handle?
Our owners simply need to handle some of the easy and not too time consuming tasks associated with renting their homes. Some of those tasks are lining up their home care services. Things like hiring a cleaner(s), home checker / repair person (if desired), lawn care, trash pick up, cable TV / Internet, etc. Taking on these simple tasks will save your thousands of dollars.
With our partnership type of rental management service homeowners can expect to save half the commission expense compared with using a traditional rental brokerage and much more in the case of a full service rental property management company.
Each homeowner can decide what listing sites to market their home on. The owner signs up for & pays for the listing subscription with the listing site(s) of their choice and we would then handle everything thereafter.
We also have a vacation rental listing site where our homes that we manage are marketed. This helps keep things off the major listing sites giving us and the owner more control over the booking & communication with each guest. Guests love it too! This way they can avoid paying high booking fees to the big name vacation rental sites.
Owners will also be given financial statements making it easy for owners to submit the short term rental tax and keep track of their investment.
We can provide a list of home care providers. You just make the calls & save!
Trash pick up
Cable / Internet
Hiring the right home care providers can make all the difference. We can provide a list of them for you in the case you do not already have them in place.
Getting the right photos goes a long way with marketing your vacation rental home. This step is so important. If you already have good photos then great! But if you are brand new to renting your home we highly suggest hiring a professional real estate photographer. We can help you find and schedule photos. Ask us about this if you need any assistance.
Our vacation rental management service is only 7.5% to the homeowner and we charge an admin fee to each guest at the time of booking.
Guests do not mind paying a small fee to know they are working with a legit management company and renting a home that is handled professionally and at industry level standards. Most management companies and agencies charge a higher guest admin fee and this is expected from the guest.
It is time to start enjoying renting your vacation home. With our rental management service you will have the burden lifted, be stress-free and making reservations without lifting a figure.
