Rent your property on Costa del Sol
Looking to rent your property on the Costa del Sol? Great idea. With so many holiday makers wanting quality villas and apartments for rent, it’s quite easy to turn your property purchase into a lucrative rental investment.
35 percent of the 82 million tourists visiting Spain last year stayed in private accommodation, according to the Ministry of Tourism. Even if many of these used their own family or friends’ houses, the private holiday rentals market is rapidly growing with more and more people wanting to rent a villa on the Costa del Sol.
Imagine a family of 4 or more staying in a hotel for a 2 or 3-week holiday? A hotel wouldn’t accommodate them as well as a villa in terms of the independence, comfort and convenience levels most families enjoy.
If you decide to rent your property, rental yields of around 5 per cent have not been unusual in recent years on the Costa del Sol. One summer of renting your property to tourists could cover your running costs for up to half a year. This might include mortgage repayments and any community fees or management fees that need to be covered.
Get extra income while 4YourHome takes care of everything
Managing bookings and dealing with all the little things your guests may require takes time, energy and know-how, so it pays to have a property rental manager take care of everything for you.
It’s vital to me that you, your property and your guests get an above-average service. That’s why I go out of my way to give that personal touch by tailoring my services to suit everyones’ specific needs.
When you rent your property, peace of mind is so important if you are not around to watch over things. I provide a direct 24-hour service so that you or your rental guests can get in touch in an emergency any time, any day.
I take away the hassle. It’s not always easy to rent your property in Spain if you don’t have many contacts or friends to keep a key or organise maintenance for you when you are not there.
On your behalf, I can meet and greet your guests to hand over keys and help them to get familiar with their accommodation. I can also let in tradesmen and oversee work.
I prepare your home for new renters
It’s not just about getting bookings. It’s about making your villa or apartment stand out from the crowd. If you want to keep bookings flowing in, it’s important to rent your property in a perfect state of repair.
Thorough cleaning and beautiful styling are vital if you are to attract repeat rentals and referrals from your guests. With guests often paying thousands per week in peak season, pristine presentation is essential for that five-star appeal.
In addition, maintenance jobs need identifying and resolving, often between bookings and at last minute’s notice. Having your rental manager on hand to check things over and arrange quick action from trusted professionals is vital.
Welcome packs filled with luxuries and essentials can make all the difference to setting your guests’ holidays off to the right start. After all, it’s also the smallest details that could keep them renting your property year after year.
Hire professionals to ensure the right rent
Once you’ve decided to rent your property, it’s a good idea to consult a professional rental manager who is also fully aware of the holiday rental prices you can achieve for your particular style and class of property.
Knowledge of the area and the types of available properties is essential to gauging how much rent you should be charging each season.
