Keep you ad up to date

and availability dates

Once your property is online, it is necessary to keep your ad up to date. Remember that it is your first contact with travelers! Your ad must be accurate to avoid disappointment of your tenants: let’s imagine that you have changed the decoration or that the Jacuzzi is no longer available, your tenants will probably be unhappy! Updating the information and pohots in your ad will avoid the prejudice of a bad review. Remember also to do this for the dates of availability of your property, if possible well in advance. This will allow you to get organized, and your customers will be able to anticipate the planning of their trip. You will then be able to win new reservations!

Target your

potential travelers

Your property has its own particularities that will make it more suitable for certain categories of travelers. For example, a couple and a family do not have the same search criteria (surface, equipment, decoration…). Ask yourself the right questions when trying to define what type of tenant your property would suit. Because it is by targeting your clientele that you will enhance your rental. You will then gain in reservations! To help you to define your target and to seduce this one go on our article “How to target and attract your customers?”.

Adapt your prices to

the season

Would you pay as much for a beach house in winter as you would in summer? Probably not! The same goes for your tenants. There are high, medium and low seasons, often modulated by school holidays. As an owner, you must take into account the influx of tourists and the attractiveness of the seasons to define the price of your rental. To do this, consider looking at the prices posted by your competitors. Other factors such as the main activities in your city, the location of the property, the size of the house and its particularities are to be taken into account.

How to set the price of your rental?

A seasonal rental is a real real estate investment, the goal being first to collect an interesting rent. Nevertheless, you should know how to find the ideal price. You can freely fix this amount but it remains preferable to take into account several factors, in particular your geographical situation and the period at which you rent.

Your geographical


The city or the district in which your hiring is located influences much the price of the night of this one. Indeed, the rent in the tourist areas is much higher. Thus, a room in the province is not worth a room in Paris, even if they have the same interior characteristics.

The surrounding

green spaces

Plants are good for both body and mind! Implicitly, travelers know this and that’s why they often look for their proximity. So, if your house is on a mountain, next to a beach, a lake, a forest … it will have a direct impact on the amount of your rent.

What type of

house are you renting ?

We all know it! The square meter is rather expensive in France. Thus, the rent will be very variable according to whether you rent a house, a villa, a cottage, a mobile home, an apartment or a studio. Furthermore, the age of your rental property and the construction materials are also taken into account. Not to mention the capacity of the property: if it is judged that the property can accommodate several families, it will be relatively expensive. If not, it is better to keep the price reasonable.

The period

in which you rent

Be careful, the period in which you rent is crucial! Indeed, a house by the sea will be more expensive in summer than in winter. Conversely, a cottage will be more expensive in winter than in summer.

Small reminder :

  • Very high season for winter vacations: February.
  • Very high season for the summer vacations: from July 20th to August 20th.

Finally, to set your rent, look at the rates of the competition, similar accommodations, nearby hotels… Take into account all the criteria mentioned above. Then, adapt your offer according to the demand you receive (the higher the demand, the more you can afford to raise the price)
