Property Management Services
Why use Lazy H Retreats as your professional property manager?
It’s Simple: We own and operate our own short term rental properties. Upon acquiring our first few properties in 2020 to operate as vacation rentals, we quickly learned we could outperform the majority of other properties in the market.
Most property managers advertise that they post properties on 50+ sites to get high visibility. Sure, this includes Airbnb & vrbo, but it is a shotgun approach rather than a tactical strategy. Maybe they have a decent amount of their booking come in directly through reputation and marketing but the reality is if you are not maximizing the 2 biggest platforms you are almost certainly leaving a lot of money on the table. On the flipside, most independent owner/ managers or small managers simply put the property listing on Airbnb, or hopefully Airbnb and Vrbo, and even if it is a decent listing they “set it and forget it”, which over time leaves the listing lost in the shuffle of hundreds of similar units.
At Lazy H Retreats we focus on 3 Operational Pillars:
- Marketability- We treat Airbnb and VRBO like a google search engine. Through the use of operational software AND hands on/ manual processes, we make sure our listings stay very high on airbnb and vrbo search pages. We also follow proven methods on how to make the listing pop for potential guests and put in the work to ensure the listing retains high visibility. While we will squeeze everything we can out of airbnb & vrbo, we also are building our brand with direct bookings through social media traffic, Paid advertising, SEO, email lists, specials, etc.
- Rates + Occupancy– Once we have the property optimized on the booking platforms we use dynamic pricing software to help us maximize rates and occupancy. Within our software we set a series of rules within each season and manually review every listing once per week to make adjustments as needed.
- 2 Way Customer Service Transparency- We provide five star service for our guests as well as our property owners. On the ownership side, we promise to have a clear and concise fee structure, clear communication, and detailed monthly reports to go along with payouts. For the guests staying in your home, we use detailed automated communication, smart door codes that activate and expire with reservation times, digital manuals & guidebooks, and customized local recommendations.
Here at Lazy H Retreats we promise to treat your place with as much love and attention as we do our own!
