Vacation Property ManagementAh, vacation time. Do you own a second home or home / camp on Caddo Lake, Cross Lake or Cypress Lake? Do you have a vacant family home you have recently inherited? Would you like to make some extra money on the side? Your home is probably one of the biggest financial investments you’ll make in your life, so naturally you want to make sure it’s well taken care-of while you’re gone.
Having a second home can be fun, but quite expensive. We can help offset those expenses and put extra money in your pocket.
Enter our vacation or corporate housing property management solution! If you live in the Shreveport LA or even the Bossier City area, you can benefit from the services of an experienced property manager while also making some cash on the side. It’s a win-win!
How does this work, you say? Read on!
Want to make a little cash while you’re away from Home? Try our vacation property management solution!
First, you’ll want to contact us by phone at (318) 548-6156 or by using the form on this page. Your property manager expert, Debi, will review your information and get back to you on whether your home is a fit.
You’ll also want to do a thorough evaluation of your home. Think of your house as if it were a hotel…what do people need to know in order to stay here? Make a detailed list of instructions for new guests, including the phone number for your Shreveport Bossier Corporate Housing property manager.
Take pictures of your home before you leave so that you have a record if anything goes missing while you’re gone. You may also want to talk with your home insurance company to make sure that there aren't any issues with renting out your home.
Don’t forget to have fun with your vacation rental! Hospitality can be very enjoyable and guests will appreciate thoughtful details like fresh fruit in the kitchen and water bottles in the fridge.
Lock away all of your valuables and important files. You won’t want tenants to accidentally break your Grandma’s antique china vase or to rifle through last year’s bank statements. Keep these items in a locked room to minimize potential disruption.
You’ll also want to remove excess clutter from the house so as to keep up a clean and pleasant appearance while guests are staying in your home. Nobody wants to see someone else’s dirty laundry or messy refrigerator.
Talk to Debi about how the vacation property management process will work.
- Who is going to take care of cleaning the property after guests leave?
- What about restocking toiletries?
- How will house keys be handled?
- Will Shreveport Bossier Corporate Housing take care of handling home emergencies or fixing any repairs while you’re gone?
- How much will the vacation property management fees be and how will you be compensated for the use of your home?
- Will you need to market your vacation rental property or will someone else handle that?
Keep in mind that using a property management company can greatly reduce your headache while you’re gone. Unlike other home rental options like VRBO or AirB&B, a vacation property manager takes care of the nitty-gritty and ensures that you can leave your home in the hands of someone you trust. After all, you want to enjoy your vacation away from home!
