Is your property working for you?

We are going to have a series of blogs about the different aspects of renting your property.

A holiday home can deliver more than just a retreat or bolthole to escape the daily grind.

Your property is an asset which can generate income and achieve capital growth.

Think about how, when and who will use the property?

Your holiday home can offer flexible rentals

Short term 1 or 2 weeks or the whole of the 6 week summer holidays, or long winter let’s.

If you are for example in a city say Malaga, or Mahon or Ciutadella, demand may be high for a short weekend breaks. This may be particularly attractive to potential guests if transfer times are short to the international airport and are easily accessible either by road or public transport.

In the case of Menorca we can offer property management and rental services with concierge service to cater for every need.

Contact Properties Overseas to discuss your individual requirements.

Marketing your home

A few pointers you may find useful to consider when marketing your home.

Is the property primarily an investment property with a few weeks a year for personal use or the reverse?

If requiring income do you have a target figure to reach?

Look at rental sites covering your location seeing the differences between low, medium and high seasons to establish potential rental values throughout the year.

Are you willing to sacrifice 2 to 4 weeks in high season, to make available for higher value rental returns?

How does potential rentals fit into your personal or family holiday calendar?

Why Renting your property can boost you income in retirement

Some points worth considering regarding making use of your property in the sun.

Consider how many weeks you intend to use the apartment/villa?

What time of year or season do you wish to use it?

Is it suitable for short breaks or more suited for longer rental periods?

If you have a large number of weeks where it will be vacant, perhaps a few rentals can offset any annual running costs.

If more regular rentals are a possibility this can supplement your income in retirement, with little effort on your part with a good management company to call on.

If this is something you wish to discuss we can facilitate this through our agents in Menorca and Nerja who would be happy to assist and are very well established and respected.

Home Staging

Home staging is an idea well established in the USA.

It allows for a property to be well presented and viewed by prospective buyers in the the best possible light.

Small touches like the correct lighting, with furniture and soft furnishings to be correctly placed, can give a positive feel to a room or the complete house.

It may need freshening up with a coat of paint, or some minor repairs to ensure it remains well maintained.

All the above helps to increase the chance of credible offers from potential buyers.
