Respond to possible guests quickly


1

As soon as you receive an e-mail from a potential guest, the owner should respond immediately. The quicker the response, the higher the chance of keeping that booking. You need to know that the same traveler has already contacted or will contact competitors, so whoever is quickest tends to have the best chance of being chosen.

In addition to a quick response, the communication must be clear and concise, containing all the necessary information so as not to raise any doubts. If this communication is established via e-mail, it is interesting for the owner to have ready-made replies that only need to be sent.

Our tip is to build a template email to confirm the booking and another to be sent after the stay, to help maintain the good relationship with the guest and also build a great professional image and reputation for the business.

It's also worth looking into some companies that offer an automated response system, as this facilitates the communication channel between the owner and the potential guest.

Converting and Cleaning

The upkeep and cleanliness of the property is important, because in vacation homes, guests stay for several days and need to receive a property that is commensurate with the amount they paid for their stay. In addition, the maintenance and cleaning of the environment gives the owner an appreciation of the property in the eyes of the market and their guests.

Good service providers should be hired to carry out thorough cleaning before and after your stay.

Preventive maintenance on equipment and installations must be carried out at certain intervals.

In this way, the owner guarantees the guest that everything will work in the best possible way and that everything will be in perfect condition for use.

Due to excessive use, it is normal for certain wear and tear to occur, in addition to natural wear and tear (depending on the location of the property).

For this reason, it is also necessary to make periodic visits to the property to check that everything is in order and to request repairs for possible anomalies.

Using creativity in low seasons



5

It's important to study the low season in the location of the property and try to find ways to increase profitability during these more critical periods.When it comes to advertising prices, it's worth doing some thorough research into what competitors charge during high and low seasons, as well as what they charge on weekends and weekdays.

It's also worth researching the daily rates at nearby hotels.

The more information collected, the easier it will be for the owner to advertise a reliable value in periods of low demand.

In times of low demand, being creative is an advantage. Create exclusive packages (such as partnerships with nearby restaurants), promotions (if guests stay for a week, they get another day free), progressive discounts (the more days they stay, the less they have to pay), reward programs (to encourage loyalty) or even renovations.

All of these ideas are valid for attracting potential guests, but before putting them into practice, you need to analyze whether the investment is financially worthwhile and whether they will bring the desired return.

In the off-season, when demand is low, the owner can take the opportunity to spend his own vacations there. It's a good time for this, as at other times of the year the property will be occupied.

Build a loyal relationship with your temporary tenants


6

In order to build loyalty with temporary tenants, the owner must provide a memorable experience for their guests, from the beginning to the post-stay, so that the guest will book the property whenever they travel, recommend it to their friends and family and also give it a good review on the platform through which they booked the property.

In addition to the decoration, cleanliness and upkeep of the venue, a few other details can make all the difference.

For example, offering snacks and drinks when guests arrive, providing a map of the area with places offering coupons, discounts and better prices, and even a welcome card are all ideas that the owner can take note of and put into practice.

The owner can use email or social networks to build loyalty by collecting email addresses and creating a newsletter to send discount offers, promotions, reward programs and scores.

Birthday cards can also be sent to make the owner-guest relationship even closer. In this way, the owner will get to know their loyal customers.

HIRING A QUALIFIED PROPERTY MANAGER



7
Hiring a property manager is a very promising business strategy for owners who want their business to be run in the best possible way. The property manager will take care of the bureaucracy, so the owner won't have many obligations to fulfill. The property manager is responsible for carrying out the following activities:

- Advertise the property on the main search portals;

- Acting as an intermediary for receipts and payments to the owner;

- Taking care of the bureaucracy, creating temporary rental contracts;

- Making payments for the property's expenses (electricity, water, etc.);

- Keeping the property clean and tidy before, during and after your stay;

- Carry out periodic visits to do a check-list, checking that everything is in perfect condition and, if not, requesting the necessary repairs.

A vacation home with 4 to 7 bedrooms is expected to reach a minimum of 30 weeks of occupancy per year, i.e. the occupancy rate varies between 57% (210 days per year). By applying all the tips above, the occupancy rate is estimated to reach 80% (292 days per year) or more.

Fixing the daily rate at USD 250.00, we have that:

Before (57%): Gross revenue = 210*250 = 52,500 USD.

Then (80%): Gross revenue = 292*250 = 73,000 USD.
