The Vacation Rental market is an ever-expanding one. More and more vacationers are gravitating toward vacation rentals than hotels. Make your vacation rental stand out from the crowd with our marketing tips.
How to Become a Successful Vacation Rental Owner
Create a Marketing Plan
Getting organized and coming up with a plan will be your best line of defense. Keep record of what marketing techniques work for you, monitor trends and update it constantly. Invest in advertisements and become approachable for potential clients to reach out to you.
Clients want to feel like that are interacting with a real human being, which is why they are drawn to vacation rentals rather than dealing with a corporate hotel. Respond to inqueries as quickly as you can, even when you are booked. Express your gratitude for their interest and suggest them booking at a different time. Clients will always remember how you made them feel and will make them come back.
Create a Booking System
It can be easy to get overwhelmed or lose track of bookings when you don’t have a system in place. This will create confidence and professionalism when you have a legit booking system. Write up rental agreements, deposit forms, final statements, and the appropriate documents needed to make your process and renter’s experience as smooth as possible.
Offer a Competitive Rental Rate
Renters most likely have done a fair bit of research on properties in the area they are looking to vacation in so it’s best to understand your market and price comparably.
Create Desire Through Your Listing
Stage your photos to showcase your best features in the best way possible. Make sure to create as much natural lighting as you can in the property, and show off the views and location if they are exceptional!
Keep Extra Value Features Visible
Do not let them get lost in a listing. Keep these features at the top to catch the eye of possible renters.
