Keep you ad up to date

and availability dates

Once your property is online, it’s time to update your ad. Remember, it’s your first contact with travelers! Your ad must be faithful to reality to avoid disappointing your tenants: let’s say you’ve changed the decor or the Jacuzzi is no longer available, your tenants will probably be unhappy! Updating the information and photos in your ad will help you avoid the damage caused by a bad review. You should also think about the dates of availability of your property, if possible well in advance. This will help you get organized, and your customers will be able to plan their trip in advance.

Target your

potential travelers

Your property has its own particularities that make it more suitable for certain categories of traveler. For example, a couple and a family don’t have the same search criteria (surface area, equipment, decoration…). Ask yourself the right questions and try to define the type of tenant your property would suit. Because it’s by targeting your clientele that you’ll enhance the value of your rental. You’ll earn more bookings! To help you define your target audience and win them over, take a look at our article “How to target and win over your customers“.

the season

Would you pay as much for a beach house in winter as you would in summer? Probably not! The same applies to your tenants. There are high, medium and low seasons, often modulated by school vacations. As a property owner, you need to take into account the number of tourists and the attractiveness of the seasons when defining the price of your rental. To do this, take a look at your competitors‘ prices. Other factors to take into account include your city’s main activities, the location of the property, the size of the house and its special features.
