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!
