You are not the only one who ponders this on a daily basis in the tourist era in which we live. Many owners are thinking: Short-term rent? Long term rent? There are even those who want to sell the property.
If the latter is your case, from Hosticasa you can earn money monthly until we manage to sell your property. Sounds good, right?
All these doubts are easily resolved by studying the property of each of our clients. Vacation rental is an economic boom in the tourism sector. 20 years ago, if you wanted to offer a tourist accommodation service, you had to set up a hotel or an apartment complex, but the scene has evolved.
Currently, many people are looking to rent their vacation home to tourists, enjoying extensive benefits. If you have a second property with which you want to generate income, but do not know how, you are in the right place!
HOW CAN I GET STARTED?
Entering the world of vacation homes is like entering the business world. Before entering you have to look at the competitors, what they offer, at what prices, etc.
Once you have all this clear, look at your property and your economic capacity. What can you offer Do you have a pool? Do you include excursion packages? There are factors to take into account that will determine the price that people will pay for your home and that will influence how many people are interested in renting with you.
CHECK THE REGULATIONS
Since the amendment of the Urban Leasing Law in 2013, vacation rentals have been excluded from national regulations, becoming the responsibility of the Autonomous Communities, each establishing its own requirements.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few disparities between communities, so you will need to be well informed about the regulations of the community in which you have the property. Wherever you are, these are the essential requirements to start operating legally: Have a license to enable an occupancy license.
Register the property in the registry of tourist establishments of the Autonomous Community and sign a responsible declaration.Use the registration code that they give you in any advertising of the house.
Although it is true that you do not need a career or higher studies to rent your vacation home, you would need some knowledge about Revenue Management, which allows you to know, among other things, how to manage prices or how to increase the occupancy rate. There is a lot of documentation on Google about this, you can even find free courses!
OFFER THE BEST SERVICE
Once you know what the competitors are offering and what you can afford to offer, you must differentiate yourself from other properties. Investigate what tourists likes are. Learn about them, what they like, what they look for at what price. All this will help you understand the tourist and offer them the best possible service, differentiating you from the rest of the properties that are not so involved.
