How do you calculate how much will my house earn?
Will I be able to enjoy my home for personal use?
We will use unique pricing strategies which will tap into the most effective pricing structure throughout the year, and avoid booking gaps in your rental calendar and maximize your earning potential. Our rental specialists will carefully analyze and review comparable rentals in your surrounding area and then key in important market factors (such as changes in market demand and seasonal changes) that can realistically impact your rates. We will then use this data to establish the optimal rate for your property. We also would give you an opportunity to weigh in on your lowest price. We guarantee that our clients will never be forced to accept less than their "minimum rate".
Yes. Feel free to block out your dates you would like to use your property, through our secure owner dashboard for your desired dates. Since our goal is to maximize bookings and earning potential for our owners, we recommend a maximum of 3 months out of the year can be dedicated to personal use.
How will my listing be marketed?
We commit to putting your listing on the leading hosting websites in the industry, but what makes us stand out above the rest is that we
understand that that is not all that it takes to make your listing rise above the rest. Which is why we will promote your property so that you will not only attract viewers but secure bookings. One of the methods that makes us stand out is the ongoing marketing we will do to adapt to changes in algorithms and fluctuations in demand and customer preferences even while your property is listed. Simply explained we will not just list your property and leave it to chance.
