Confessions of a Property Manager

Hi, I'm Lisa and in my blog I'm going to be spilling the beans on what it's really like to be a property manager in Spain looking after other people's properties. Your wouldn't believe some of the things that I see and happen to me. I'm going to be telling you all about it!

Rental Enquiries, don't loose that enquiry pass it on!

You are probably finding that most of your summer weeks are now booked or you only have a few gaps left to fill.  The most popular August weeks have gone and maybe you just need to fill some July weeks.

Whatever your calendar says, if you are still receiving enquiries for the summer which you can't accommodate remember to pass it on.  For maximum rentals it is a good idea to have a few people you can pass over enquiries to which is also reciprocated. That way you have more chance of filling odd weeks. 
 
If you haven’t stipulated Saturday – Saturday changeovers and are being more flexible sometimes it can be difficult to get the right dates booked to avoid awful 6 day gaps. The more enquiries coming you way the more likely you are of filling them – simple. 
 
So if there are others in your complex doing the same then see if you can set up some sort of system where you can liaise with each other and fill those remaining weeks.
 
I am now having problems accommodating August bookings, it seems the beginning two weeks of August are always the most popular. 
 
It is a while since my last blog and the reason being is that June has proven to be the month for last minute bookings – although this is good it is more intense as we have to organise everything at the last minute!  
 
My first Spanish guests who left on Saturday were great, they left the apartment in a very clean state and vacuumed the entire apartment. The dog was a breed of husky which seemed to moult everywhere! And although they had done a good job there was still dog hair around but it gathered together so for all the world the cleaners thought there had been a sheep in the apartment!!
