If you own a home that is regularly left unattended, you can seriously benefit from our short-term rental management. Whether you are new or experienced, we possess all of the knowledge and skills to really ensure that you get the most value out of your property.
If you have a few properties that you are letting out, you may not have considered short-term letting, because of the real time and effort managing a number of properties consumes. Putting your properties in our hands means you benefit from the higher rental income – without doing any of the work needed to get you there.
If you are an experienced property developer, you will often find that many of your homes will be left unattended, whilst you look for buyers. Maximize as much value as you can by letting us take advantage of those empty flats. Our regular cleaning and maintenance will ensure that your flats are ready to sell should you find a buyer.
Everything that we do, is done with one thing in mind – increasing your yield. Our algorithms and tailored pricing strategies mean we know just when to increase/decrease rents to maximize occupancy rates and boost rental income. It is by combining these strategies with professional photography, interior design and customer service that we can often increase your yield up to 30%.
Providing the perfect listing for your property is the best method in generating as much interest as possible. We will list your house on all marketing channels and combine attractive content with beautiful photography and responsive service so that your property generates serious interest and bookings.
We will work with you at design stage and renovate your home so it is totally ready for the rental market.
However worn and tired your property is - our experienced team can work within any budget to bring it up to shape.
Most importantly, we will do it quickly and efficiently, to have your property live as soon as possible.
When potential guests view your property on Airbnb, the only way they can view your property is through the photographs. First impressions count and it is imperative that every picture of your home is beautiful, clean and tidy.
Our professional photographers will visit your property and create stunning pictures perfect for showcasing your home.
Cleaning is an essential cog in the management of short-term lets. A poor cleaning job will seriously impact on the reviews left by other guests. Our experience in the hospitality industry means we maintain the properties we manage to hotel standards. We employ cleaners who are reliable, quick and with a serious eye for detail. It is this attention to detail that will help maintain your score, and it is this which will safeguard your yields.
At About The Stay, we appreciate just how important customer service is. Making sure every single guest has an enjoyable stay at your home, is the only way you can achieve a five-star rating. It is this high rating which will keep your occupancy rates and yields high and steady.
Many of our clients inform us that the properties we manage are often in better condition than when they owned the property. Naturally, we need to maintain your property to ensure high customer satisfaction and we can do this only by employing high quality maintenance workers who will look after your home.
We provide AA-rated insurance for public liability and damage to homes specifically covering short, medium and long lets.
We provide property portfolio owners with regular updates of the state of their properties, and we are always on hand to assist with any enquiries.
We vet guests carefully and make the safety of your property, priority number one.
First you provide us with your postcode and the condition of your property. We’ll then be able to give you an estimated income return based on our price generator.
One of our property experts will then phone and arrange a convenient time to visit your home to assess the property. If you are away or live overseas, you can arrange for us to collect the keys and take a look at the house ourselves. Naturally, we’ll treat your home as if it were one of our own.
Our interior design team will contact you for a discussion and work out a plan to renovate home – within your budget. Once this is completed one of our professional photographers will visit your property to take some spectacular photos of your property.
Your home is now ready to be listed. Getting to this stage normally takes just seven days from the initial discussion.
Once your property is up and running, you will receive regular reports from our management team. Your house will be assigned to a dedicated advisor, so you have one point of contact should you need to get in touch with us.
