If you are thinking of using a property rental service for vacation rentals in Spain or renting an apartment, there are some key features that you should look out for before making a commitment. You will need the best possible service as well as making the most of your vacation rental. Here are five main features that every real estate rental service should offer.
- Excellent customer service
Your guests will remember you for the service they receive during their stay in the villa, apartment or vacation rental. Your guests must arrive at a clean villa, house or apartment.
When renting a vacation, golf or other vacation in Spain, each guest should receive a welcome package with directions to the rental facility and useful information about the area. If you have an apartment for rent, the tenants need to be treated well. Rental collection, service and assistance with local utilities and telephone installations should be done in a friendly and thorough manner.
- Cleaning management
The rental service must provide reliable cleaning management. You may be living too far away to do the cleaning or maid service. If you live in England or the USA, but your vacation rental or apartment is located in Fuengirola, Mijas, Puerto Banus or Elviria in Spain, you will need a property rental service to take care of the cleaning. For holiday rentals and villa rentals, cleaning must be done between each guest stay, and sometimes during the week of the stay. For country houses and villas, it is also necessary to take care of the lawn. Make sure this is included in your service.
- Key stocks, inventory and details
You may not be able to handle local vacation rentals or apartment rentals. Therefore, these tasks should be entrusted to the real estate rental service. Some of the conditions required for the leased property to function legally include holding keys, insurance, property taxes and fees, building permits or licensing, managing bank accounts, installing a telephone and utilities, billing, etc.
Another important area is inventory. Furniture and other valuables in your apartment or villa should be kept on inventory and checked physically every time a guest leaves. If you live in another country but own a rental property in an area of Spain like the Costa del Sol, Marbella, Benalmadena or any other area, then obviously you will need someone on site who can check your inventory for you. Choose a property rental service that provides these services so you don’t have to worry while you are away.
- Building renovation and overhaul.
Another feature to look out for when renting real estate is whether they provide building renovation and major renovation services. The advantage of this is that the supplier will already have contacts to carry out the required work. You don’t have to spend endless hours trying to find a reliable contractor or handyman.
- Advertising your apartment or vacation rental in Spain
Make sure the rental service will promote your apartment or vacation rental in Spain. Promotions will increase your rents and profits every year. The property rental service can handle your advertisements on local, national and international platforms. If they have a website, they can advertise your vacation rental on it. If you have vacation rentals near golf courses, make sure they advertise your rental in terms of “golf vacation”.
Keep these features in mind when looking for property rental services. By choosing a service with great features, you will have peace of mind knowing that your vacation rental or apartment is in good hands!
