Suppose you have a vacation home in West Yarmouth, and you need some relief from managing all the little details of this property. You may even live out of town, making it even more challenging to take care of a rental home. If you want a break from management and your West Yarmouth real estate—or simply better bookings for your home—there are many reasons to hire our West Yarmouth property management team.
Why Hire Property Management?
Owners of West Yarmouth vacation rentals are often worried about the safety of their property, especially if they live out of town. You have mountains of paperwork and taxes to take care of when you own a rental property. You have regulations to adhere to. You must clean and sanitize thoroughly between travelers, especially nowadays. Your investment in West Yarmouth vacation rentals is an essential part of your nest egg, which is why it’s crucial to have experts take care of these details for you.
One of the most common questions we get asked when we talk to people about their rental property is, “How do I get this property booked enough to make money?” Here are some ways to make sure that happens and why West Yarmouth is a perfect area for an investment property.
Location, Location, Location
If you want people to book your vacation home, you won’t want to choose a home near a place where you would not wish to have a home yourself. It can be tempting to buy those homes, though, because they are often low-cost—but there’s a reason for that. Spend a little more for a comfortable area with some local luxuries and a low crime rate. People want to feel pampered, relaxed, and at ease on their vacations. We can help you find the perfect areas in West Yarmouth for your vacation home, especially if you don’t live in the Cape Cod area. We’re locals, so we know where the best-kept secrets are!
Cape Code and West Yarmouth are popular destinations and for lots of reasons. Here are just a few things that will keep your property booked all year.
Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge
This 7,600-acre area is comprised mainly of dunes and marshland. The land also includes a decommissioned lighthouse (now restored) and is home to several migratory seabird species, including the beautiful red knot.
Heritage Museums & Gardens
Who doesn’t love a beautiful garden? But there is much more to see here. Your guests can learn all about the history of the automobile at the Josiah K. Lilly III Antique Automobile Collection. Like folk art? There is an extensive collection at Heritage, carousel rides, and gardens in a riot of color. And if your renters have kiddos, they won’t want to miss the sensory gardens and exhibits in Hidden Hollow.
The Pilgrim Monument
The Pilgrim Monument is a favorite of travelers to Cape Cod. The 252-foot tower is the tallest all granite structure in the country. The views from the top are some of the most beautiful views of Cape Cod.
The Edward Gorey House
If you noticed the fantastic, artistic alphabet in The Gashleycrumb Tinies or illustrations in Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, you have seen a couple of the works of Edward Gorey. Insider secret: some of the guides were friends of his, and a tour with one of them is like a ringside seat to his life.
It’s often said in business that the repeat customer is the least expensive one. You want people to keep coming back, so let the property management experts handle the details. We take care of all aspects, from helping you choose the property and line up maintenance to screening guests and cleaning/sanitizing in between them.
Put yourself in your guests’ shoes. Let’s say you want to take the family for a vacation to Cape Cod. You book your vacation home only to find out it’s far away from where you wanted to take most of your tours, it’s in the middle of nowhere, or you don’t feel safe there. Or maybe you get there and find out the owner hasn’t gotten to all the cleaning yet, for whatever reason—these days that can be scary. Would you want to go back to that home when you come back for vacation in a few years? Yeah, neither would we.
