As we pointed out in our last post, when managing vacation rentals promoted on Airbnb and elsewhere, the devil is indeed in the details.
But there’s more to the art and science of vacation rentals than optimizing tactical elements like listings, pricing, cleanliness, customer service, and use of the latest technology.
There’s the strategic side. For example, determining if it’ll be cost-effective to make a major furniture investment in a Palms Place Hotel and Spa vacation rental in Las Vegas. Or whether that next vacation rental property purchase should be in the Mondrian South Beach condo hotel on Miami Beach or in Fort Lauderdale’s Conrad hotel.
Most owners of second homes and investment properties who go into vacation rentals lack the skill to make the right strategic moves entirely on their own. That’s’ where a full-service vacation rental property management service comes in.
When deciding on the Big Stuff, your property management company should be a key resource. After all, they’ve repeatedly seen what produces the best return on property investment for owners. Strategic advice is a value-added service you should expect from your manager.
