Make Some Cash By Renting Your Vacation Rental Property You've probably considered renting out your place when you aren't there, for those who own property in a popular vacation destination. It can be rather lucrative when you know how to prepare your property appropriately. Whether you choose to handle things yourself or consign the duty to a reputable vacation property management company, a knowledge of the basic elements involved with property management success will demystify the process and help produce beneficial results. How To Market It A black and white flyer on the corkboard outside a local market, in some spots in the world, is going to be just fine to have your property occupied all year long. It can take a bit of work to make the most of your investment, since many vacation rentals are empty about half of the time. One benefit of hiring a property management company is that they can do this work for you. A good vacation property management company not only knows where and how to list a property, they keep an eye on high and low seasons and have systems in place that automatically change rental prices to suit demand. If you decide to list the property yourself, consider developing a system to track who stays at your place and when they're most likely to rent. Have It Clean Making certain your property is clean takes a lot of time. The cleaner a home is, the more likely someone is likely to rent it and the more likely they'll return an additional time. You may also charge more for cleaner properties. Take time to make a checklist specific to your property, whether you live nearby and choose to tidy up yourself, hire a cleaning service or leave cleaning to a property management company. When you've got a checklist, the individuals that are cleaning will be certain that they've cleaned everything they should have so its ready for the next guest. Such things as sweeping the sidewalk or refilling the ice trays can easily be overlooked when turning over a property. The checklist will guarantee that things aren't forgotten. Communicate Renters actually appreciate rules, even if you might think your being too strict. It's good to know how loud you'll be able to play your music or how many other people you can have over and if it's alright to use slippers or other items that have been left behind. There are some owner that haven't taken enough time to figure out what they feel comfortable with the renters doing when they're renting the house. When something is lost or broken these folks could become upset, but they have no way of getting re-paid for the damages. Take time to figure out what you are comfortable with, and be sure to communicate those expectations clearly to each of your renters. Somewhere in the rental you will want to keep drafts of your rental agreement, post necessary signs and keep a binder. When you can, talk directly with the renters. You'll want to see if they are a family or a big group of friends, what they think they're going to do why they are in town and the ages of the people coming. And always keep renter contact information accessible in case something does go wrong.
