Coastal Vacation Rentals prides itself in our understanding of the specific needs of a vacation home, both on behalf of the specific needs of the property owner and the desires of guests. With a prodigious portfolio of successful properties, rentals are sure to both meet and exceed the expectations of all different kinds of guests, ensuring that properties remain profitable, successful, and marketable.
Comprehensive Inspections and Inventory Management
A lot of work has to go into every aspect of property management. Inspections need to be regularly carried out to ensure property integrity and functionality, that way it can be assured that nothing goes wrong or breaks at a crucial moment during a guest’s stay. Inspections are carried out on multiple levels, offering comprehensive coverage from structural stability to high standards of cleanliness. Both a cleaning team supervisor and Property Manager handle inspections, ensuring multiple pairs of eyes with different but important skill sets inspect every bit of the property.
Part of successfully managing a property is making sure that you have a comprehensive list of everything that belongs in the home and where it’s supposed to be. Layout is important, and can really bring the entire property together, and of course having a full inventory list is the best way to keep unruly guests accountable.
Inventory lists will include anything you desire, commonly including things such as furnishings, artwork, dishware, cookware, flatware, linens, and beyond. This ensures that, during inspections, the checklist can be used to verify everything is exactly where it should be, and in what condition. Wear and tear are to be expected in any location where somebody stays, so it is highly recommended that heirlooms or important keepsakes are either taken from the property or stored in a locked owners’ closet before your guests arrive.
Thorough Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleanliness is one of the most important aspects of running a successful rental property, and to that end Coastal Vacation Rentals coordinates and manages cleaning services for you. Cleaning and maintenance will both be overseen, directed, and duly compensated for services rendered. You won’t even have to worry about distributing the payments yourself.
Coastal Vacation Rentals will also work with any Condo or Homeowners Associations to ensure that the property is up to their standards. Rules will be documented and followed to ensure that both the property and any potential guests are following guidelines.
The best way to stop a problem from happening is getting ahead of it before it can become an issues. To that end, Coastal Vacation Rentals utilizes a set of procedures in order to prevent any unnecessary expenditures or damage to an owner’s property.
Creating a great relationship with guests from the very first interaction helps to ensure that they will show your property the same respect they were shown prior. Building a customer/client relationship based on respect means that the same respect will ideally be shown to rental properties.
A welcome folder will also be prepared with specific instructions and rules by which the guest must abide, ranging from community expectations, such as noise ordinances, to step by step instructions on how to operate things like gas fireplaces and showers.
Taking care of smaller issues before they can be exacerbated also helps save a lot of money down the line. Coastal Vacation Rentals will inspect things like HVAC filters, smoke alarms, doors in need of adjustment, latches, deadbolts, caulking and grouting, and so on. Preventative measures such as this require a much smaller up-front cost than whatever the expenditure will have to be if something completely breaks down. Working with reputable contractors and avoiding procrastination helps ensure the guest has the best stay possible, and the property remains in its best condition.
Guest Issues and Concerns
Due to the varied nature of guests at any vacation property, Coastal Vacation Rentals has gained experience in handling guests from all walks of life and their specific expectations for their stay. One of the best preventative measures that can be taken is ensuring that only the very best of guests are selected to stay at your property, but even the very best of guests can run into unexpected problems. Guest issues are approached on a case-by-case basis in accordance with South Carolina Landlord/Tenant law, down to keeping the appropriate paper trail. In the vast majority of situations, you won’t even have to handle the issue yourself, as minor issues are something that need to be solved regularly, though property owners will be informed of any issues big or small. If a problem is particularly egregious, Coastal Vacation Rentals will contact the owner to work out a specific solution.
Comprehensive Accounting and Statements
Property owners will be provided with monthly statements that itemize both income and expenses. To that end, Coastal Vacation Rentals has partnered with Streamline, offering owners platforms and application for smartphones and tablets. This condenses and simplifies viewing and sorting through statements, and at the end of the year, a 1099 will be prepared to ensure all tax information has been accurately documented.
