Maintaining the integrity of our homeowners' properties is one of our top priorities at Island Realty! We recommend that our owners schedule a deep clean after the summer season to ensure a successful and enjoyable fall and winter season for our future guests.
First impressions matter! When a guest drives by your rental property, what is the curb appeal telling them? Make sure the outside areas look just as good as the inside!
After families have come in and out of your property all summer long, there are bound to be some scuffs on the walls, and some noticeable wear and tear. A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference, and can even be the deciding factor that a guest chooses when picking out the property that they decide to rent.
A vacation rental sees a lot of foot traffic all year round. Refurbishing the floors ensures that your property looks refreshed, taken care of, and not neglected.
Pollen, sand, saltwater, and more; your rental property sees it all! A good pressure washing of all of the exterior areas will make sure that your home looks clean and maintained.
Talk to your Owner Representative, and look over our MSI (Standard Inventory) list. Does your rental property have everything it needs to be ready for renters? If not, the off-season is a great time to replace/add in any of these items.
|APPLIANCES (Dishwasher, Stove, Refrigerator, Washer, Dryer)|
|MATTRESS PADS/PILLOWS/PILLOW COVERS|
|CHAIRS (Bar Stools, Dining Chairs)|
Cleanliness and presentation are two factors that can help make your property more desirable to renters! If your property looks refreshed and feels clean upon first inspection by the guests, then they will be much less likely to reach out with a complaint during their stay. Also, when prospective guests are researching rentals online and see that your property looks updated, you are more likely to have an increased successful rental rate compared to a property that looks dated and worn out. In addition to thoroughly cleaning your property, updating the furnishings and decor to have a neutral cohesive design will make your unit significantly more appealing. The post-summer season is the perfect time to address these issues!All of our Owner Representatives make it a necessity to get in touch with their homeowners during this time of the season and discuss the recommendations they have for them. Each Owner Representative will review the past year and go over any negative reviews that impacted each property's rental performance. The Representatives will then address any issues and discuss with the homeowners regarding what needs immediate attention and what could be put off until more revenue is earned. This partnership approach has been very successful in the past, and we can see it continuing to be beneficial as we move forward!
