Why to use a property management company in Bath?
We touched on how competitive Bath short-let market is and how the Bath market attracts two different customer markets at different times of the year. To generate a maximum number of bookings at any given time in Bath you need to have three things. 1) Good Quality Product with Good Quality Photos i.e., it is your holiday home. 2) You need to be smart with your pricing. You should have a system that allows you to have different pricing system for tourist season and for corporate season. Moreover, pricing should be at the level where the guest thinks it is a great value for money, you need to hit at least 70 percent occupancy and your nightly rate should bring profit after subtracting all direct expenses. There are many instances where the host feel they need to charge high prices and they may get 20% occupancy and they lose 80% of nights having their holiday home empty. That is a lot of missed opportunity and revenue. 3) You need that eye for detail and care to generate high customer reviews. Without good customer reviews the holiday home business is tough to survive.
