Maxime Leufroy-Murat, CEO and Founder of City Relay, tells us why Airbnb property management companies like his are on the rise across all of London.
With London attracting around 15 million tourists a year, the need for accommodation is extremely high.
As the demand shifts from traditional homogeneous hotels to unique short-term rentals, this industry often referred to simply as Airbnb’s, has seen an ever-increasing rise.
In the wake of this trend, there’s a growing demand from homeowners for Airbnb management services in London. But why? How can an Airbnb management company improve your short-term rental success?
The first advantage of working with a company that provides Airbnb management in London is that it takes the stress away from the host. Ultimately the advantage is that you can earn strong income with no hassle.
You never have to worry about your guests’ check-in, their support throughout the stay or the cleaning afterward; and this is only the start. You can be safe in the knowledge that a professional Airbnb management company is looking after your home and your guests in the best way possible.
An Airbnb management company can also help you maximise your income as they are able to generate more bookings at a better price continuously throughout the year with the help of their smart pricing tools, experienced staff, and access to marketing networks.
City Relay, one of London’s most trusted Airbnb management companies for example, have developed a piece of software that automatically updates the nightly rate dependent on a range of factors such as seasonality, market demand and days of the week to optimise their hosts income and occupancy in real-time.
Choosing to work with an Airbnb management company will provide you with the certainty that your guests will always be looked after at any time of day. You can rest assured that your guests will benefit from a more professional service at every stage of their stay, from pre check-in communication to providing maintenance services if there is a problem in the home.
Reviews are also very important for your listing, as the better they are, the better your property is ranked, resulting in more bookings.
Airbnb management companies have a lot of experience in what makes a home popular and so are able to write attractive listings and work with professional photographers to increase your success. This combined with the strength of an operations network behind them ensures that you get the highest occupancy and the best reviews.
If you’re looking to earn money from your property when you go on holiday or maximise income from a second home, there’s no doubt that an Airbnb management company takes the hassle out of the process while also helping you to maximise the income from your property.
