Part 2 of a 2-Part Series
Three homeowner questions:
Do you own property in the Lake Arrowhead area that you would like to rent out this summer?
Do you wonder about appropriate rates to charge and how to get the word out?
Do you need help setting up boundaries for rental guests?
If you answered, “yes” to any of the above, here is a little advice about letting your Lake Arrowhead vacation property. Hire one of the best property management companies on the hill – Arrowhead Property Rental (APR). In part one of this short vacation rental series, we covered the reasons vacationers should rent properties through a professional property management company. In this post, part two of our series, we will address the reasons local property owners should take advantage of our skills and experience before renting their home unassisted, or through an internet app.
Some homeowners with property in resort communities such as Lake Arrowhead mistakenly believe they can save money by directly renting their own cabin, townhome or house. Although, on the surface, this seems true, it is inaccurate. Property managers such as Arrowhead Rental Property charge modest fees for handling a host of rental headaches before they turn into property rental migraines.
For instance, if you live out of the area where your property is located, unassisted, you will not necessarily be on scene when a water pipe breaks inside the house or if air conditioning stops working in the sweltering summer. In such cases, irate tenants will call to alert you about the condition of your home, which could include severe water damage or melted candles, sauna-like heat or worse. Without a professional property management team working on your behalf, such a case would require you to travel to the dwelling and make necessary repairs while necessitating the refund of collected funds and possibly having to pay out-of-pocket for alternate housing for your displaced guest.
Peace of Mind
Accidents happen. In one Lake Arrowhead condo, for example, a major summer thunderstorm produced a lightning bolt that hit the power line connected to several units. Not only did every security alarm go off, but several of the units had to replace major appliances, whose electrical systems had gone off. Based in Lake Arrowhead Village, Arrowhead Property Management was immediately aware of the weather and proactively checked the situation, calling first responders and sending repairmen to the scene. Hiring a professional will give you assurance that, even in your absence, your home is monitored and problems are quickly addressed.
When prospective tenants try to book your property for a certain date while using an app or online service and find the home unavailable, they will be directed elsewhere. The Arrowhead Property Management team works directly with prospects, to check with them about flexible travel dates. In many cases, a slight adjustment to their calendar will keep them in your home, oftentimes year after year, instead of booking elsewhere.
