Ok, I want to earn money from my London property while I am travelling. What can I do?
You can rent out your apartment for tourists and business travellers who come to London for several days, weeks, or months. There are multiple platforms where you can list your property: Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, Marriott Homes & Villas, and many more. As London is one of the main cultural and business centers in the world, the properties here are always in high demand. Airbnb prices in London are soaring at the moment and are now higher than pre-pandemic, according to the recent Bloomberg report published in October 2021.
Renting out a property sounds like a lot of work.
It really is. To list a property on different websites, collect bookings, communicate with guests, and handle all possible issues, you need to spend a certain amount of time and energy. Fortunately, you don’t need to do it yourself: get in touch with ALTIDO and our experts will handle everything quickly and efficiently. We will take care of all the steps on the way: checking that the apartment is ready to be rented out, creating a professional listing with attractive pictures and detailed descriptions, taking bookings, greeting guests, cleaning the property, communicating with customers, and fixing possible maintenance issues.
But you will take a commission for your services, am I right?
That’s true, we take a part of the revenue as a commission for our work, but it will definitely be worth it. Our services will save you a lot of time and energy that you can spend on doing something you like. You will benefit from our expertise: we have 20 years of combined experience in hospitality and know how to handle marketing, pricing, communicating and all aspects of business in the best possible way. Finally, you don’t need to build your reputation on booking platforms from scratch, as your property will become a part of ALTIDO portfolio and be associated with our trustworthy brand.
Can I be sure that my property is safe?
Renting out a property means taking a certain risk, but our experts will do everything to minimize it. We carefully vet every guest before accepting a booking to make sure your property will stay clean and secure. We also use technologies to monitor the property, for example, NoiseAware — smart sensors that are measuring the level of noise in the apartment 24/7. And finally, to give you peace of mind, your property will be insured with our partners Guardhog, who specialize in working with short-term rentals
