WHEN clients come back to your holiday home year after year, you know you have the right formula for maximising rental income.

Yes, you need to get all the basics right, such as the price, the marketing and the furnishing needs to be comfortable and in good condition.

Then you need enough linen and utensils and to make sure everything is in good working order, remember to fit safety equipment and, what is a must these days, get WiFi.

And don’t forget to ensure the property is professionally cleaned, as this is the first thing your guests will notice as they walk through the door.

But equally important is the communication you have with the client. You need to ensure they understand fully what they are booking, such as location and how to find it, plus what the local amenities are and where to collect the keys.

Location is always important and they will want to know how far from the beach, lake, golf course, supermarkets and restaurants the property is.

Finally, ensure you’re registered with the Junta and adhere to the new rules regarding short term rentals.

If you feel this is going to take up too much time, get a professional, multilingual company, like ours, with many years experience of helping owners maximise their rental income.
