And I expect you to spare at least this much time for your business. This is least you can do and don’t just read it and forget it, work upon the idea and maintain your performance.

1. Prioritize Your Customers

I went India last year for a business tour with my friend. There I learnt a basic yet authentic principle of business — Treat your Customers as God. Yes they do treat their customers like a God and that’s what makes their relationship with their customers home-like. Now if we talk about Rental Business you should try to maintain healthy relations with your clients. Make sure you pay heed to all their complaints and queries. Just be available to them 24/7 and don’t let them feel betrayed and disheartened. But this does not mean you will invade their privacy, remember they are at your place to have some personal time and not to be bothered by you all the time. Maintain a balance and make sure you are in contact with them.

2. A Clean Home Is Their Right

First impression is the last impression, well it might not be true in case of people you meet but  it is certainly true about the places you visit. So if your guests won’t find your place clean in their first visit they will not consider staying at your place again. It will bring bad name to your Business and you may lose potential guests. Bad referral is more dangerous than you think.

Talking on your guests’ behalf, I would say that a clean place to live in is their right as they are paying for it. They will definitely leave negative reviews on your website about your rental property without any hesitation, because they will be  disappointed in you. A clean place will lift up their mood and will freshen them up.

You should regularly clean your house and make sure it is hygienic. Imagine they open the main door and everything is spick and span, everything is exactly at its position. Undoubtedly they will love it and will appreciate your service.

A Pro tip:

Make sure to clean your house surroundings as well.  A dirty garden is as disappointing as a dirty kitchen. So make sure your garden area, garage, back lawn, the surroundings of your place everything is clean. It might sound absurd but trust me cleanliness can help you earn more  3. money.

3. Bend your finger and lick the butter

No relation is one sided, it only works when both the parties are equally involved. And so does it happens in business, if you are providing a clean home to your clients then it is your right to get it back at least not in a bizarre condition. Be humble and ask your guests to do the basic cleaning. You cannot expect them to do all of it but yes they can do some basic tasks such as loading the dishes, drawing all the curtains, switching off electrical appliances like lights,fans, microwave etc, closing doors and windows, making sure that garbage is dumped into dustbins. You can help them in doing that by putting small reminder slips all over your place or a decorative chart with all the instructions written over it for the same. It depends upon you that how you will get things done with your own creativity. So wear your creative caps and blast it with your kick*ss performance. Make them work without botheration.

4. Safeguard your Rental Property (Deposit Fee)

Some of you might not find it appropriate but charging a deposit fee from guest is not at all a bad idea., Indeed it is a great idea. It will serve dual purposes. First of all you will be relieved from worrying about the damages that might be caused to your property by careless guests. Second, deposit fee will make your guests more cautious about how they handle your property and gadgets in your house. Therefore chances of damage will be less. Convince your guests that in case of any damage only the amount extended to that of the damage caused will be recovered and remaining will be given back plus in case there are no damages your money will be returned to you. A pro tip here is that you can tie up with any online shopping app and provide exclusive vouchers to your guests, if they book your property for a certain period and leave it without causing any damage.

5. Don’t be a bossy boss

A place where every time you find your boss yelling out at an employee is a jail. And such a place feels like a nightmare where you can’t escape the ghost and have to deal with his sh*t. So if you are a boss then treat your employees like family, and they will work more efficiently which in turn will improve your business performance. But it doesn’t limit your powers, you can scold them if they depict wrong attitude towards their work and everything is acceptable if it is done in certain limits. Manage your staff effectively and make them feel at home yet inspired to do their work. Don’t overload them and make sure you have as much direct contact with them as possible, especially your cleaning staff. Maintaining right quality and quantity of personnel is another major decision that a leader takes  which directly impacts your revenues. Over hiring and under hiring both will deplete your revenues. So choose optimally.

6. Go Solar… Go Green

 If you are lucky enough to have ample sunlight in your Vacation Rental Property and that too for almost around the year, then you can cut down your electricity bill to almost nil by installing solar panels. Yes, it will put burden on your pocket for sometime but in long run this is a win-win game. Because solar panels are eco friendly and they are long lasting. Second, your environment loving guests will love it too. And if you want to them to be overwhelmed by their choice of choosing your property, then keep your garden in upright condition. There are different flowering plants in your garden to give it a contrasting look. Make sure there are no mosquitoes breeding in or any other harmful creature residing happily in your garden area.  

You can further have segeragated waste management system so that recyclable waste can be recycled. Remember that mother earth is providing you with all of these resources therefore this is least what you can do for her. Make sure you harm you planet as less as possible. And if helping mother earth is increasing your bookings from your environmentalist friends then what’s the problem. Grab every opportunity dude.

Conclusion

Business is just like life, in order to grow you need to improve and keep going on. Similarly if you really want to achieve success in your rental business then never give up. Start with some small things and make huge difference because small pieces of puzzle makes a complete picture. Use these tips to improve and see the results. Every business is different just like our fingerprints. So understand your needs and work on it. Don’t stop at a point work hard and expand. And after expansion, try to maintain your position. That’s what matters. Many startups fail because they just don’t keep going on and want instant results. Be patient, have a muffin and work more without much load.
