Tips for Successful Cabin Rentals

Tips for Successful Cabin RentalsThe difference between a good a great rental property lies in the details. These top 6 tips will ensure you get the best rental price for your property and also promote repeat business. As there will be many people in and out of your home, it’s imperative to have a Tennessee Cabin Insurance policy to financially protect yourself.

Enlist Rental Estate Agency Help- An agency will act as the liaison between you and the renter and have bound legal contracts to help protect you, the rental, and the tenant, according to Fresh Home. The realtor will conduct a thorough screening of the renter to ensure the guidelines you have set are met. In addition, the realtor will take professional photos of your home, which has been proven to boost sales tremendously.

Keep it Current- Renters want a chic, homey place to stay. If your home is outdated, renters are less likely to want to stay at your rental. Your home should feature stylish, clean furniture throughout and not look as though the home has been furnished with discarded, damaged items. Experts recommend protecting your pieces with slipcovers and ensuring all upholstered items are easily cleanable as spills and stains are bound to happen.

Professional Cleaning- Tubs should be clean, counters should be wiped down, floors should be spotless, bathrooms should smell fresh, etc. After each renter, the home should be professionally cleaned.

Home Away From Home- This doesn’t necessarily need to be a large expense. Small personal touches can really make the renter feel at home. Hang pictures on the walls, put fresh flowers in a vase, include books, magazines, and tour guides, and provide some board games and extra throw pillows on the couches. Include modern amenities such as TVs, a DVD player, internet, and cable to accommodate broad age range. Further, ensure your kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials so the renters are able to cook a meal together.

Information Packet-In addition to having a sign in sheet, provide a booklet with relative information such as local emergency centers, pharmacies, attractions, shopping, restaurants, theaters, bookstores, etc.  Moreover, include trash collection information and your phone number in case of emergency.

Maintain the Property- Ensure the yard is well kempt and the grass and bushes are trimmed, everything is functioning properly, and any necessary repairs are completed before guests arrive.
