This year, HomeCareontheWeb.com has seen a surge in home owners wishing to make some extra cash from renting out their properties in Spain.
Being a landlord comes with many benefits and doesn’t have to be any stress or hard work at all with the right property management company. So it’s no surprise given this economic climate that owners have turned to their properties as a way of making more income.
Good news is that there is still a big demand for properties in Spain. The self catering option is increasingly attractive to all types of holiday makers and many people are choosing long term rentals as they are not in a position to purchase. In fact from January to the end of August 2012, over 2200 weeks of holiday rentals were booked with HomeCareontheWeb’s properties. That is a lot of happy home owners and holiday makers!
