Communication: Your Extra Edge in Vacation Rental Management on Airbnb – and Everywhere

full-service vacation rental property management

It’s happened to just about all of us.

You spot something online that looks exciting. You immediately send in an inquiry to get a question answered or make a simple request. Then you wait … and wait, for a response that ends up coming late or never arrives.

In vacation rental property management – on Airbnb and other travel sites used by consumers – delays in response to inquiries from potential renters cost money.

The math of communication in these cases is simple: Fast response time to inquiries equals higher revenue; slow response time equals lower revenue. You can take that to the bank.

But speed isn’t everything. Response quality is a big revenue driver. When a person planning a vacation is on Airbnb and spots what looks like the right vacation rental property in Las Vegas, if they ask how long it’ll take to walk to the Vdara Hotel & Spa on West Harmon Avenue and receive a response that provides drive time, credibility drops, frustration rises, and odds of booking the guest head in the wrong direction.

Consumers do business with people they like, and in vacation rental property management, attitude matters. This is true across every touchpoint, and particularly when an issue arises during a stay. At One Fine Flat, everyone who communicates with our clients’ prospects and customers is intelligent, courteous, and nice. And know what? It shows … on our clients’ bottom line.

The full-service vacation rental property management team at One Fine Flat prides itself on communication speed and quality. Schedule a complimentary consultation with us on optimizing revenue from your vacation rental property.

Excellent Vacation Rental Management Means Making the Most of Your Listings

Detailed, gorgeous, compelling listings for your vacation rental property can be your sales reps on steroids. This means doing much more than answering basic questions like, “What’s the maximum number of occupants?” Your listings should stop viewers in their tracks, stir readers’ emotions, and convert prospects into confirmed guests.

On the all-important visual side, professional photography tends to be well worth it. Pros use special lighting, high-quality camera equipment, and expert composition to put your property in the best possible light.

Listings written by professionals are also an excellent idea. Pros present facts while skillfully describing the experience. When it’s appropriate to “sell a dream,” they do it – without overpromising. As a result, a higher percentage of viewers convert into confirmed guests. And by providing accurate details on your vacation rental, you’re more likely to receive coveted five-star ratings.

As we said in Optimizing Revenue From Your Vacation Rental Property Requires More Than Airbnb, your listing can and should appear on 50+ sites, including the most popular online travel agencies.

Now, if you’re thinking all this sounds great, but you can’t imagine doing it yourself, here’s good news: the right full-service vacation rental management service can take care of all this and more. One Fine Flat uses professional photos to make your property look better than ever, the latest technology to optimize your listings (including dynamic pricing), and master calendar management to avoid double-booking.

Optimizing Revenue From Your Vacation Rental Property Requires More Than Airbnb

Maximizing income from your vacation rental property means making the most of Airbnb. But vacation property management is about much more than Airbnb management.

Many advertising textbooks discuss the contribution of reach to marketing success. By reaching more prospects for your vacation rental, you raise demand. As a result, you command higher fees.

To make this happen, your property should be shown where short-term vacationers are searching. Besides Airbnb, your property can and should be listed on 50+ sites, including Booking.com, Expedia, HomeAway, KAYAK, TripAdvisor, and VRBO – plus Google, social media sites, and other online locations.

Now, you may be thinking, How on earth will I ever be able to do all that? Short answer: You don’t have to. Even if a property owner somehow manages to pull all that off on their own, they’ll find it hugely difficult to track reservations from multiple sources and avoid double-booking. But the right full-service property management company will take care of all of these listings and resulting reservations for you, and let you largely sit back and collect a check each month.

To find the ideal service in that sea of property management companies, it’s not enough to search for Airbnb management companies. They’ll tend to be good at only one aspect of vacation rental property management. Quite possibly, for lower fees than an Airbnb-only company, you can get full-service vacation rental management that ensures your property’s presence is optimized wherever it belongs.
