  1. There are a few things you can do as an owner to keep your property listings competitive:

    • Use High-Quality Photographs. People are more likely to rent or buy when you have clear, crisp, high-quality photos that showcase the property’s best features.
    • Stage Your Property. Clean, tidy and showcase the best features to draw in buyers and renters.
    • Use quality content. What you say is just as important as your photos.
    • Use our “featured” property marketing service. Listings that are posted as “featured” properties are given priority and are shown first on our property searches.
    • Reply within the first 2 hours. Most people will send requests out to more than one property owner. So the sooner you reply, the more likely you’ll beat out your competition!
    • Provide premium customer service. Greet your guests, provide them with helpful guides, and be available when they have questions or need help. Efficient and friendly customer support makes all the difference.
    • Have detailed policies. The more information that’s included in your rental or sale policies, the better. If your customer is unhappy and it’s in relation to an inadequacy on your side, address their issues professionally and offer a refund of some sort if necessary.
    • Offer something special. Getting positive reviews really matters, so why not offer something a little extra? Examples include a free bottle of wine, some snacks, or a small welcome gift. Small gestures can go a long way.
    • Upgrade to a Featured Listing. By upgrading your property to a “featured” listing, your property will show up in more areas such as in the “Featured” properties section, in the footer, and on our social media platforms.

Owners and property managers who see the best results have a few things in common:

  1. They use High-Definition photos – Using clear, sharp photos will show off the property’s best features.
  2. Their description is optimized with SEO content – Your description is equally as important as your photos. Be descriptive, highlight special features, and use SEO-rich content to get your property noticed.
  3. They create “featured” listings – All of the “featured” listings go to the top of the search results, which means more eyes get to see your property.
  4. They include a rental contract – with detailed policies and information.
  5. They are upfront about any downfalls of the property – Any unusual or quirky characteristics should be mentioned. People are much more inclined to be okay with something when they are aware of it upfront as opposed to being surprised by it after they’ve arrived.
  6. They take customer service seriously – Answering questions and problems in under 2 hours is important. Going above and beyond to rectify issues with tenants is always recommended.
  7. They stage their properties – Travelers come for an experience. So take the time make it look great.
  8. They give discounts on long-term rentals.
  9. They add an incentive or two – A free bottle of wine, coupons to local attractions, a welcome gift, or other small gestures can go a long way for improving your renter’s visit and getting them to recommend your place to others which will improve your booking success rate.
  10. They get their properties “Featured” – By upgrading your property to a “Featured Property” you can increase your click through rate and improve your chances of getting a rental or sale.

We also suggest that you ask detailed questions and do any background checks, website searches, and rating reviews possible to ensure that you feel comfortable renting from the owner.
