Vancouver, BC: The demand for short-term rentals has skyrocketed in the past few years. While Airbnb has simplified the listing process, landlords still need ways to increase bookings. They also need strategies to build consistent revenue from their investment and streamline communications with the guests.
Fortunately, HostGenius offers exclusive Airbnb management in Vancouver to new and experienced investors. With over five years of experience, the company is familiar with effective ways of transforming the property into a hotel-like accommodation and navigating through some of the challenges of the short-term rental market.
One of the services is guest verification. Besides being a legal requirement in Vancouver, it is the best way to prevent fraud and build trust with the guests. Using third-party tools, the team ensures the guest’s ID matches their selfie photo and, if it does, proceeds with background checks. Like other platforms providing flexible rental services, the team can go through previous host reviews on Airbnb before confirming the bookings.
Besides coordinating bookings, the Airbnb property manager ensures the house is well-maintained and ready for new guests every time. The company works with other service providers to ensure the property is clean and supplies are restocked. If the property needs some repairs or maintenance, the management team ensures they are done and completed on time before the next guest.
HostGenius also manages pricing and property availability. While Airbnb allows property owners to decide on pricing and rates, a keen look at the market dynamics is key in ensuring it is properly listed on the platform. The company uses various factors when setting the pricing, making the house attractive to potential guests. And if the potential guests have questions about the property, the company has a team on standby to answer them.
In addition to ensuring the client’s property brings them money through constant Airbnb guests, HostGenius has invested in structures that make it easier for them to keep tabs on occupancy, rates of return, and cash flow. Through the dashboard, which has all the modern data presentation features, the landlords can still get all the details regarding their investments remotely.
The onboarding process is also unmatched. The landlord first meets with a team representative to go over various factors, such as how the management team operates. The meeting is key in helping them understand how short-term rentals, specifically Airbnb works in Vancouver.
When speaking about the company, one client noted: “HostGenius has been managing my property for over a year now. And it’s been a great experience since the beginning. The staff is very knowledgeable, attentive, and patient which is great for first-time investors.”
