If you're doing all the marketing and advertising yourself, you probably won't be able to unleash the full potential of your short term rental property.
To really achieve the success your property is capable of, you need to adjust the 'levers and knobs' of revenue management until you've dialed in a winning strategy. This is what professional management companies do on a daily basis by using effective multi-channel marketing to drive higher rental rates and more bookings for your vacation rental.
At Savvy, our results speak for themselves. We outperform the competition everywhere we operate because we take a very personalized, hands-on approach to property management.
Some vacation rental managers will use a "set it and forget" strategy, meaning they'll set the rates up once and keep them that way. This is one way to manage short term rentals, but it's certainly not the best.
Knowing what to charge each night is the starting point. And even if you aren't sure what to charge, you can use advanced pricing software to stay competitive.
The issue with pricing software, however, is that it's made generically for a specific market. It doesn't know the market like you do. Different pricing products use different variables to drive their algorithms. These tools also have limitations on the kinds of special offers you can create for guests.
When you have a deep understanding of the guest profile—the kind of travelers who would love your home—and when you keep a consistent pulse on the vacation rental market in your area, you've planted the seed for a winning revenue strategy.
The real questions is, what are you going to do with all that extra cash?
Maximizing your short term rental property isn't just about setting the nightly rates. Guest communication is also a critical component. You must engage with renters before, during, and after their booking if you're going to increase the lifetime value of each renter that books your home.
Before their booking is even confirmed, you want to make sure you negotiate the best prices. When communicating with guests, saying the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, can be the difference between hundreds or even thousands of dollars in rental income.
As soon as they arrive, you'll want to incorporate thoughtful touches and personalized service to ensure your guests have an incredible stay. Because when they have a 5-star experience at your vacation home, they want to keep coming back year after year...
After they've departed, you can do any number of things to stay on their mental radar so they think of you or your short term property whenever they want to book their next vacation.
You can send them a postcard on their birthday, or a friendly holiday email, or offer them a special rate on a home when you know their favorite band just booked a venue to play in your town.
But what to say, when to say it, and how? How much marketing is too much marketing? What kind of relationship do travelers want to have with their vacation rental hosts?
At Savvy, we answer these questions on a daily basis.
When it comes to maximizing the income potential of your vacation home, think of it like a growing plant... It needs to be watered frequently until its roots are established. As it grows its branches and develops into full maturity, it becomes more self-sustaining and doesn't need as much attention. But this takes time and, of course, some tender loving care!
If the bottom line is important to you, you can count on Savvy to make it the best bottom line you've ever seen.
Now that you have better rates, higher occupancy, and more money flowing to your bank account, you'll notice that your vacation home is being used more. And the thought of lots of people going in and out of property may cause some worry...
"The furniture will get worn out quicker."
"My things will break more often."
"I'm making more but I'm also spending more so what's the difference?"
These are all natural thoughts to have, and quite common based on our experience with new vacation rental homeowners. But what most of them don't realize is that in order for our business to succeed, their property needs to be in showroom condition for each guest that stays.
What does "showroom condition" mean?
Well, think about any homes you see in a magazine. They are professionally designed, photographed, and advertised specifically to achieve a certain look and feel that appeals to the people who will be buying.
In vacation rental management, the people who are buying are working professionals, families, and friend groups, among others. And they don't just look at a magazine, they actually come to stay at the home. So it needs to look and feel "as advertised" or they're not going to be very happy.
Showroom condition means the home is picture-perfect when guests show up.
Imagine if you booked a hotel room and then walked in to see an unmade bed, smelly towels, and everything was in disarray. You wouldn't sleep there, much less come back to that hotel.
Unkept homes lead to bad experiences, and bad experiences are bad for business, plain and simple. So it's in our best interest to keep your vacation home clean, organized, and fully functional.
Another reason keeping your home in picture-perfect condition is a top priority for us is because if the home ever becomes "out of order," you can no longer use it and we can no longer rent it. Then it's a losing situation for everyone.
To stay one step ahead, professional property management companies do "preventative maintenance" which means they fix and replace things before they ever become a problem.
Of course things will break; that's to be expected. But when they do, you want to have a process in place for getting it taken care of right away.
Who's going to show up to the house at 2:00 AM when the plumbing or septic tank gets backed up?
What will you do when the internet suddenly goes out and your service provider has no idea what happened?
Who will you call when the hot water stops working? Or even worse, when ALL the water stops working and the plumber can’t figure out what's going on?
These are all real scenarios, all things we've personally dealt with. You might not have to deal with these specific problems but you will deal with something as you start operating your short term rental property.
You need someone on your team who doesn't stop until the job is done; someone resourceful, who's "married" to the problem.
With Savvy by your side, you can rest easy knowing that when something inevitably happens at your vacation home, we'll be there to take care of it—365 days a year.
Savvy is a trusted and caring steward for your short term rental property.

Along with cleaning and maintenance, we make sure that things are done the way you want them done. Your preferences are important to us and we do our best to implement them when we manage your vacation home.
This is not common with all rental management companies by the way.
If you want the towels folded a certain way, or if you want to make sure there's always four sets of glassware on the cocktail bar, we work with our team to make it happen.
Not only do you get to experience your vacation home exactly as you want to, you get to experience it as often as you want to. That means you can stay anytime you want, for as long as you want, no tricks or gimmicks or blackout dates included.
After all it's your home, and we want you to enjoy it as such. We think the dollars generated from your short term rental property are meant to enrich your life and the lives of others. If you're not happy, we're not happy.
