Imagine you invest and become an owner of a luxury villa holidays in Croatia, which doesn’t have the Candy Brick Full Management Guarantee.
The villa is in an attractive location in the south of Istria. In fact, the region is attracting many tourists every year and offers plenty of reasons for people to come over and visit, such as short distance from Pula and Rovinj, the sea, astonishing nature, healthy outdoor lifestyle and active lifestyle and last but definitely not least, the gastronomy.
But between so many accommodation options, how do you make your villa attractive for tourists and make them chose your villa amongst the others?
The answer to this question is not only having high-quality holiday villa, but also providing excellent and efficient service for the guests and no stress for the owner of this property.
So, what options are left when it comes to managing your holiday home?
1.) Option 1: do-it-yourself:
Advertising your house online, this step can be simple, with research on where to advertise the property it is possible to know how and where to place your advertisement.
However, making the villa available online is a whole different step. It means you would have to organise and manage the booking requests, making sure there is no double booking or overlapping days and as a busy person, you would want to avoid that.
Nowadays people, in general, are extremely busy, the last thing anyone needs is one more chore to fit in their schedule, especially if this task is another full-time job.
The goal of a smart investor is to automatise the profit, keeping his time to do what is a priority and make the capital work for itself.
2.) Option II: giving this responsibility to an agency
This solution sounds great at first, but considering it more carefully, tourist agencies may not be able to represent and show the assets of your holiday villa in the correct way. Because of their extended list of properties to manage, they might not give your property the attention it requires and deserves.
For example, if your property is worth 1.5 mln euros, it is very likely it has plenty of refined rooms, a beautiful garden, a gym, a lot of gadgets, infinity pool and to top it up, a really polished design that tourists would be willing to pay more for.
Those are the selling points to rent your property out. But unfortunately, if the agency is managing hundreds of other properties, they might not be aware of and take all the features mentioned above for granted.
As a result, they can end up following the standard procedure of taking a couple of photographs of the most common rooms. Misrepresentation can lead to a shortage of bookings, as the villa won’t be appealing for the tourists amongst the other rental properties and the rental income can decrease if the features are not displayed and justified on the rental price.
Commissions can be quite high in those agencies, amounts around 30%-40% of your income for the service. This service usually does not include cleaning, welcoming guests, an available hotline for unexpected issues, gardening and etc. You would more than likely have to pay another company to look after those tasks.
The options above are not ideal for a busy investor that wishes to maximise their financial return and doesn’t have time to dedicate on property management, it also might be the case it is not in their interest to dedicate time for this task anyway
