Now that the summer season is officially ending and fall is just around the corner, it is the perfect opportunity to focus on doing any needed updates to re-energize and refresh your property! Being at peak occupancy for the past 3 months can take a toll on a property. As a team, we will be focusing our efforts in assisting our homeowners perform the necessary tasks to help refresh and revitalize each property.

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.

What can our owners do to refresh their properties?

  • Spruce up their landscaping
  • Touch up on painting throughout the property
  • Refurbish the floors
  • Pressure wash the exterior of home and outdoor furnishings

Cleanliness and presentation are two factors that can positively help make your property more desirable to renters! If your property looks refreshed and feels clean upon first inspection by the guests, then you are less likely to have issues with those guests during their stay. Also, when prospective guests are researching rentals online and see 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. Post summer season is a great 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 bad 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 and positively effective in the future.
