Long-term rental market booming on the Costa del Sol

We’re seeing the demand for long-term rental properties grow year on year. During 2019 the HomeCareontheWeb Group managed 83 long-term tenancies, up by 37.5% compared to 2018. We saw an even bigger spike in enquiries for long-term rental properties and interest growing outside of the traditional areas.

According to Sergio (Long Term Rentals Specialist at HomeRentalontheWeb), “while properties in traditionally popular areas of Costa del Sol, such as La Cala de Mijas, Elviria, Nueva Andalucía, Marbella and Estepona are always quick to rent, we also saw an increased dynamism in the market with demand shifting to new and emerging areas.”

In 2020 we expect this trend to continue to rise and are therefore looking for property owners who want to rent their properties long-term.

We are looking for two or three bedroom apartments between Benalmadena and Estepona. The areas with the most demand include Mijas Costa, Elviria, Las Chapas, Fuengirola/Los Pacos. So if you have a property which fits this criteria and would like to find out more about renting long-term and how much you could expect to earn please contact us.

Why rent out your property long-term?

Choosing long-term rental to generate income from your property gives you consistent, year-round income, without having to keep changing tenants, or pay bills.

As there’s so much demand and so little supply, long-term rental properties tend to rent quickly and as long as tenants are happy, they tend to stay. This is why we’re on hand to look after them, fix any maintenance issues, be their point of contact for complaints and also collect their rent and keep an eye on the place. This professional support gives both owners and tenants a feeling of peace of mind and someone on the ground to handle things if anything goes wrong.

We have a number of long-term rentals management service packages, from basic options which covers key holding and setting up your property on our rentals website, to the all-inclusive rentals management package. Our all-inclusive option includes rent collection, inventory and property report before the tenancy, cleaning before and after occupation and dealing with your tenants needs while they rent with you. It also includes a legal package to check references, prepare contracts and transfer utility bills into your tenants’ names. This is a total service for both you and your tenants which gives you total peace of mind and is particularly beneficial for property owners who live overseas.

To find out more head over to our why rent your property long-term page on our website and read our frequently asked questions. We’re also here to help of course, so feel free to drop us an email or give us a call and we can let you know whether we feel that long-term rental is a good option for you.

Happy Holidays!

On behalf of all of our team, we wish you a very Happy Holidays, and health and happiness in 2018! We hope you have a wonderful time, wherever you are spending the holidays, and that you can be with friends, family and loved ones.

At this special time of year we always like to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves, so we’re helping the homeless on the Costa del Sol. We collaborate with a local homeless charity and contribute savoury and sweet pies to their Christmas meal and presents so that everyone can get a little something this year. All our generous staff are making donations to this cause, and the company is doubling what they raise so we can help as many people as possible.

At the office, we are collecting warm coats, blankets, scarves and rucksacks, to give to the homeless. So if you have anything in the house which you don’t use anymore, please drop them in to the office and we’ll make sure they get to people in need. Where to find us

Looking back on a fantastic summer

Looking back on a fantastic summer

It’s September, the weather is cooling down, the crowds are heading home and we’re reflecting on a great summer. 2017 was the best year yet for our property management and rental clients with more bookings than ever.

Here’s our summer in numbers –

  • We managed 3379 bookings
  • Checked in over 14,000 guests
  • Carried out more than 4,000 cleans

And we still have much more to come!

The Costa del Sol is a great year round destination and we’re seeing the an extension to the traditional high season, with more people choosing to visit in September and October when the weather is great but prices for flights and accommodation come down. There is also more interest in Christmas bookings, as people look to experience a different Christmas away from home, where a walk on the beach after your Christmas lunch is a reality.

We have over 1,000 more bookings for the rest of the year so far, and we expect to see more bookings coming in for some autumn and winter sunshine.

Are you renting out your property? Did you get as many bookings as you hoped? If you weren’t happy with the numbers of bookings, or found it hard to manage arrivals, departures and deal with problems during your guests’ stay, please contact us and find out how we can help you.

The Spanish Property Market Continues to Grow

spanish real estate growthHomeowners in Spain have finally started hearing good news over the last six months, with property purchases increasing in volume and slowly but surely property prices on the rise. In the most popular areas, prices have been rising for some time and the rest of Spain is now catching up, with a lot of buyer interest from purchasers around the world.

Many research bodies and official organizations are hailing Spain as a great place to invest, with the IMF praising it for its economic recovery and the Organisation for Economic Development saying that it has one of the most undervalued housing markets in the world. Not surprisingly, this is getting even more people interested in the area.

The start of this year has been brilliant, with 34,771 property transactions being made in February alone, the highest for three years, and an increase of nearly 16% from the same time last year. Find out more here. Predictions are that both the volume of sales and the prices will continue to increase throughout the year.

Property owners who have weathered the financial crisis by renting out their property either short or long term are now in a great position, with record tourist numbers demanding quality holiday rentals, more people than ever looking for long term rentals and the value of their property increasing all the time.

If you haven’t been renting out your property so far, or feel that you could be getting more rentals for your property, then contact us to find out what you could earn. With quality property management services from HomeCareontheWeb you can enjoy all the benefits of renting out your property, without the hassle.

As you may know, there is a new rental law which will come into force on May 12th to regulate the rental of private homes to tourists. We are monitoring this situation carefully and have been calling the different bodies responsible to clarify what are owners have to do. HomeCareontheWeb will be able to register properties on behalf of our clients so that we can legally rent out their property. It seems that the requirements that the property must meet are relatively simple and will probably be in place for a quality property managed by a company such as ours, so please don’t worry. We can do everything for you to make sure you are registered and comply.

To help all owners in Andalucia we are writing regular articles about this law, here is the most recent update and you can browse our other two posts to give you a good understanding of the regulations.

If you have any further questions or want us to register your property on your behalf please contact us by emailing info@homecareontheweb.com or calling 00 34 952 83 95 95. We are here to help!

Preparing your Property for 2016

Preparing your Property for 2016According to the Guardian, and many other sources, Spain is due for another record breaking year in 2016, after the best year yet in 2015. Summer 2015 was amazing, with September also breaking records with a 3.6% increase on visitors through Malaga airport even off peak. Our holiday rental division had an increase of 18% compared to 2014, welcoming over 10,000 guests. But of course we want our clients to have even more rentals, so it’s brilliant to think that even more tourists are due to come to Spain this year.

The Guardian predicts that Spain will be the top destination for both Britons and Russians who are wary of Egypt and other, once popular, holiday hot spots due to the instability and terror attacks. Rather than decide not to travel at all in the face of these troubles, people seem to be determined to get their week in the sun, but are choosing safe places such as the Costa del Sol.

TravelSupermarket.com have reported that a third of searches on their site are for Spain and ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents) claimed that Spain is set for a bumper year, with bookings for summer 2016 way ahead of previous years. Read the full article

In order to make the most of this fantastic increase in tourism, make sure that your property is looking good after the winter and that the photos that you have represent it in the best light. If it’s looking a little tired, a new coat of paint and some new linen, upholstery, soft furnishings and accessories can make a massive difference. Our trustworthy and professional team of property maintenance experts can get your property looking a million dollars, quickly and for less than you may think. For a limited time only, we’re offering special prices starting from 675€ to put a coat of paint on all the walls in your apartment. So take a critical look at your property before the peak season begins and let us help you to improve it, contact us for a quote.

When you’re preparing you property, remember that the hottest July on record threw everything into chaos last year and don’t get caught out without fans or working air-con before the hot weather arrives. Ensure the property is properly aired, heated and cleaned if it’s been empty for some time and that you wash linen which may be musty after a winter stored away.

Summer may feel like a long time away, but bear in mind that Easter is the official start of the peak season, and it’s really early this year – starting on 20th March!

Summer is nearly here, is your property ready?

property managementAfter a fantastic Easter in Marbella and the rest of the Costa del Sol, with hotels in the most popular areas seeing an increased occupancy of 30% compared to last year, and many at 100% occupancy for the key dates of Semana Santa, it’s time to prepare for summer! At HomeCareontheWeb we also had a great Easter with an 18% increase on bookings compared to the same time last year, and summer is looking fantastic, with many bookings already received and many more coming in every day as people start to get excited about the summer season.

If you’re renting out your Costa del Sol property over the summer you need to be ready, as increased bookings are being seen in May, as well as the traditional months of June, July and August. This means making sure your property is being marketed properly to maximise the amount of rentals you achieve. If you have your property on any websites, make sure your calendar is up to date so you don’t end up missing out yourselves or double book any guests coming from a different source. Consider other marketing channels if you’re not happy with the bookings you’re getting.

We supplement our high ranking website with a partnership with Novasol, which gives our owners the ability to have their properties promoted in multiple languages and also included in physical brochures distributed amongst the travel agent network in Europe. This combination gives our owners the best chance of renting their properties and competing with the hundreds of thousands of properties out there to rent.

It’s also essential to fix any issues which have developed over the year. Particularly important is to ensure air-conditioning and fans work properly, that bathrooms are in good condition and not smelly, check for damp and repaint if necessary and also review your bedding, towels etc. to make sure they are up to scratch.

Owners who have property management packages with us have a dedicated online “Owners Area” where they can securely log in at any time and in any place and update their calendar. In this area they can also check their Dilapidation Reports, which our property management and maintenance professionals make when they visit the property. These highlight any issues with the property and what needs to be fixed so they can sort out any issues before guests arrive.

Please let us know if you need help with renting out your property on the Costa del Sol and property management services to make sure everything runs smoothly. It’s not too late to get ready for summer, we look forward to hearing from you soon!
