Guest Expectations When Entering a Short-Term Rental

In the last few years short-term rentals have taken priority over hotels, especially in Ontario. For investment property owners, renting out your space is a very lucrative business. But before doing so, the said property you own must be safe, secure, comfortable and properly equipped with the basic necessities of life.

There’s a few other things to factor, apart from being comfortable and budget-friendly, when renting out your income property. Here are some things that families tend to look for while searching for a desirable place to rent.

Overall condition of the property

Being a property owner, you must be aware that the overall condition and maintenance of the home is the very first thing seen while honing in on a property for rent. Be sure to keep every corner of the house as good as new before listing your property. Small things like a spotless home, a mowed lawn, proper lighting, and a fresh coat of paint make a big difference.

Price that fits the budget

One of the most essential things that cannot be ignored is the rental price. If you are a property owner speak to experts like rental property managers to ensure a safe margin that does not undercharge or overcharge the guests. It’s important to assess the area your property is located in, and take advantage of peak and low-season pricing.

Spacious is always better

Small, dark homes are rarely considered by people no matter how undercharged they are. You don’t have to break the bank to make your home appear larger and brighter. Next to paint, new lighting tops the list of quick fixes that don’t cost a fortune. Good light fixtures or lamps can transform a gloomy, cramped room into a bright, welcoming spot that appears more spacious.

Well-equipped kitchen and structure matters

Majority of the families renting out homes or cottages prefer to have a spacious kitchen to gather in, make meals and enjoy each others company. The kitchen structure, as well as a well-equipped kitchen with appliances are always considered when hand-picking a perfect place to spend holidays in. If you’ve got the budget to replace that noisy refrigerator or ancient dishwasher, you’ll definitely get your moneys worth from your renters.

Fast internet connection would be a cherry on top

Entertainment cannot be missed! What could be better than getting a fast internet connection for renters to stream with ease? If your wifi equipment is older, especially older than five years, you may be able to contact your Internet service provider, and get a new modem and or router. Upgrading this will increase the speed and connectivity of the WiFi in your unit and help stream shows in HD and improve the quality of Zoom calls for guests.

These are just few of the things renters consider before booking your home for their trip. If you need a full check list and a guide reach out to our team for a full, complimentary consultation. We’re here to help.
