Top tips from the Costa del Sol Property Management Specialists

 

HomeCareontheWeb has been dedicated to property management and rentals on the Costa del Sol since 2003 and our founders have owned property in Spain for more than two decades. The company was started from a need for support from the founders Tony and Gill Sidebottom for their Spanish property. Having evaluated all the options, they didn’t feel that anyone would really care for their property in the right way. So, rather than use someone they didn’t really trust, they decided to set up a company that would do things the right way and HomeCareontheWeb was born.

Coming from the position of owners and understanding their needs from the inside, has enabled Tony and Gill to set up a company that really cares and is prepared to deal with all the issues which can arise when an owner does not live in the property. Good property management requires a lot of people and so over the years they have built a large multi-skilled and multi-lingual team who are able to handle anything and everything that is thrown at them, without needing to worry the owner.

The first person to join the founders was a software developer, to build a bespoke system for the owners to be able to interact with the company whenever and wherever they wanted to. There is an owners’ area where they can check reports on their property, look at bookings, ask questions and make sure everything is under control. This is a key tool which ensures transparency and good communication and builds trust, leading to positive long term relationships with our owners.

We have responded to owners’ demand to rent out their properties by creating two sub brands – HolidayRentalontheWeb which is dedicated to short term rentals and HomeRentalontheWeb for long term rentals. These have their own website, which are the ideal marketing platforms for promoting rental properties. We have also set up partnerships with other companies such as Novasol Holiday Rentals, to increase the reach of our owners’ properties and bring more bookings.

Over 15 years, we have gained a huge amount of experience on how to care for properties and the peculiarities of how things work here on the Costa del Sol. Our team knows about all the regulations, how to present documentation and handle the utility companies and tenants. We can do this with ease after so many years, but remember how tricky it was that first time. This is why it is so nice to be able to take it off our owners’ plates and handle it all. Being able to deal with everything from cleaning and maintenance to rentals and issues such as break-ins, gives our customers total peace of mind and allows them to focus on their busy lives. Read our testimonials

As we’re generous folk, we like to share our hard won knowledge with property owners on the Costa del Sol and have produced a number of guides which you can download for free on our website. These contain our insider insight on long term and short term rentals and finding the right property management provider. We hope that these will help you to avoid making costly mistakes and allow you to plan for common issues when you start renting out your property.

We also share lots of tips and information each month on our blog, which will help you get it right, when so many people get it wrong. This will put you ahead of your competition, get you more bookings and valuable repeat customers.  Read our property management articles

We hope these guides and articles will help you to make a success of renting out your Costa del Sol property. Remember, we are here to help if it seems too much!

Before you go, one final tip for you – don’t forget long term rentals! Most owners focus on holiday rentals and therefore there is a lot of competition for a relatively short season. However there is a growing demand and a lack of supply for long term rentals on the Costa del Sol at the moment. This means prices are going up and we can normally secure a tenant for our clients very quickly. We take care of inventory, checks and rent collection, plus handling any problem that tenants might be facing, so you don’t have to. Owners receive monthly payments and can have tenants for several years at a time, with very little stress. This is an excellent way to earn steady income from your property throughout the year.

Best of luck renting out your property, we hope you have an excellent summer and that your property is full over these key months. If you’re not getting the results you hoped for, please speak to us and see whether we can help you increase your occupancy and reduce the stress and strain.

It’s a special year for the team at HomeCareontheWeb as they celebrate a terrific milestone in business, their 10th anniversary. After a decade of hard work and dedication, HomeCareontheWeb is very proud to still be one of the leading property maintenance and property management companies on the Costa del Sol.

Home owners on the Costa del Sol know that they are leaving their property in very capable, trustworthy hands, giving them peace of mind when they are not at the property.

Below are just some of the comments the team at HomeCareontheWeb have received about their services in the last year.

“We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your entire organization for making our ownership in Spain worry free.  The trust and confidence Homecare has instilled in us minimizes the anxiety of owning property overseas. We wish you good fortune for 2013 and look forward to continuing our interaction well into the future years ahead.” – Schimpf – owner

“Say a very big thank you for your help with our apartment in Elviria.  You were always very pleasant and professional and made my life that much easier” – Gaynor ex owner

“The villa looks marvellous. We are really pleased with how well it’s being looked after. Thanks to all at Homecare – if you could pass that on.”  Korchak – owner

“It was a nice house and we got a great service from Homecare.  The house was placed perfectly with a great view.  Overall we are very pleased with everything.  Thank you for a lovely time here!”  Jessie Lykke.

HomeCareontheWeb Climbs La Concha Mountain!

To celebrate Red Nose Day and raise money for a local children’s orphanage in Malaga, the team at HomeCareontheWeb set themselves the challenge of climbing La Concha Mountain in Marbella and we are pleased to announce that after hours of climbing on a cold and rainy day, everyone made it to the top!

Unfortunately though, Tony (founder of HomeCareontheWeb Group) had a nasty fall on the way back down, resulting in an emergency mountain rescue helicopter winching him away to hospital! (Yes that’s him on the stretcher!)

If it wasn’t for the HCOTW Team and of course the help from the mountain rescue helicopter, Tony may not be around to tell the story today!

“It’s not easy to explain precisely what happened to me on the top of La Concha Mountain, only to say I had a number of guardian angels taking care of me.

My first guardian angel was the thorn bush (about 25 metres down) that I ran into which stopped me rolling further down the mountain. I must have lost consciousness for a while, but then I could hear Luke scrambling down the mountain trying to get to me. I was trying to reassure him that I was okay, not to worry and to call someone for help.(Not easy for a son to see his father rolling down the mountain).

After Luke’s cry for help other guardian angels immediately appeared, climbing across the mountain side to assist us. Lewey was one of the first to arrive and immediately began to reassure me, which he continued to do for the next 2 to 3 hours as we laid in the freezing cold and rain. Both Luke and Lewey found items of clothing to wrap around me, sheltering me from the rain and wind to try and stop me from shivering. I heard other voices above me, those of Matthew and Jackie taking the dogs to safety.

While all this was going on I knew the rest of our team were looking out for and chasing up emergency services, and I knew that I was going to be safe. Eventually the sound of the mountain rescue helicopter gave me the added strength to hold on, and I was soon winched away to safety and the warmth of the intensive care unit with lots of lovely nurses attending to me. I sustained numerous cuts, bruises and a broken knee cap, but I experienced teamwork at its best.

Thank you for all those who helped me on the mountain and afterwards – and thank you to everyone for all the kind wishes you sent me – they all meant so much.

We would like to say a massive thank you to those of you that have made your kind donations so far!

We are still accepting further contributions so if you would like to make a donation to these worthy causes just email us on info@homecareontheweb.com – we will then contact you for your credit card details or add your contribution to your account.
