Renting Your Holiday Home
When you rent your holiday home, there are a few factors that you should consider.
If you are new to renting property, and don't know about these aspects, read on.
Here is an easy to follow guide to renting out your property abroad:
Furnish the house
You can get a higher rent on your holiday home if it is furnished well. A home with
classy fixtures is likely to attract more people than other properties.
Go for furnishing and colours that are neutral. Furniture should ideally be of medium
to high quality, and preferably something that does not require a lot of maintenance.
If you want to add new features to your holiday home like a hot-tub or a pool, compare the outlay costs with
the extra rental income that the additions are likely to bring in. The new additions
should not clutter the space. They should complement existing fixtures and enhance
the appeal of your holiday home.
There are a few essential items that every house should have - first aid kit, contact
details of the local emergency services, a safe for valuables, central heating or
air-conditioning (choose based on the climate) and swimming pools. Including a washing
machine, ironing board and iron, hair dryer and fresh linen will make your holiday
home more comfortable to live in.
