If you currently own a vacation home rental property and you are not earning enough extra cash then I would consider listening up. You will learn how much people are willing to pay on a nightly and weekly basis to stay in the home that you are not using! Knowing how to advertise your investment rental will help you get the most for your time and efforts and will also mean that you can make a substantial income just renting out your property.
The first thing you will want to consider in the process to advertise your vacation investment is to write a very descriptive ad of your vacation rental. You’ll want to tell the potential renters the square footage, how many rooms, how many bathrooms, and what sorts of furnishings are provided. You will then want to mention, possibly in very bold lettering and nice big font, any amenities the property has such as hot tubs, pools, saunas, tennis courts, and things that many people would consider luxury items worth paying for. You will also want to make a list of these items because it will make your vacation investment stand out from the rest.
When you advertise vacation home, you want to make sure that people see your property and recognize how attractive it is and give them a high value worth. A great way to catch eyes of the public to your advertisement is to use a bold typed catchy headline. Don’t lie in the headline, but make it be something unique that will grab renter attention. Suggest that you will give a free night rental if a week is booked or something to that effect; it will bring the renters in by the herds!
When you market your vacation home, you want to be sure that you really sell the place on all of its good character traits and features, as that is how you get renters to book with you quick and start making money. And that is a good thing.
After you write your special and unique yet powerful ad you will want to market vacation rentals in every possible outlet. The Internet is obviously a great resource that most people use to search vacation rentals all the time and there many of these sites that it will be hard to select which ones to use, so try to pick the ones that seem most enjoyable to browse as a renter, as these are the sites that are most attractive to your potential renters. When you advertise vacation homes on these web sites you’ll want to include photos. If the listing company you choose to go with has an art department then that is even better because they will enhance your listing making it look sexy. Without photos you might as well not advertise your rental at all, because people really want to see what they are paying for.
Look for a site that offers unlimited pictures or at least 20, so you can add as many as you want of the interior, exterior and surrounding area. Pictures have a positive effect on inquiries and bookings.
