You’ve done it! You’ve invested in a property on the Alabama Gulf Coast. You may plan to enjoy your property part of the year and offer it for others to enjoy when you aren’t there, or you may decide to offer it throughout the seasons as a full-time rental property.
But have you found that your savvy business opportunity has turned into a challenge and you need help managing your property?
From the upkeep to marketing, maintaining a vacation rental property can be a full-time commitment. Fortunately, you don’t have to handle this on your own.
Since 1983, the Harris Vacation Rentals team has helped owners take the stress out of property management. We have developed into a one-stop-shop for those seeking a hands-off approach to managing their rental properties.
Check out the many ways that we have helped vacation property owners maximize rental revenue while maintaining their investment properties to the highest standard.
Revenue Optimization and Management
We don’t believe that making a profit from a rental property has to be seasonal. With comfortable temperatures throughout the year, the Gulf Shores climate makes it possible for your vacation rentals to host a variety of vacationers throughout the year.
Our team works to capitalize on demand all year round — not exclusively during the summer months. We have a dedicated revenue management team that will maximize the value of your rental home to ensure optimal revenue and occupancy, year over year.
Reservations and Concierge Services to Keep Guests Coming Back
Your guests deserve a five-star experience and we are equipped to make that happen.
Our reservations staff are sales-driven and local area experts who call, email, and text every guest to ensure all their needs are met as they book their vacation — whether online, over the phone, or even on Facebook Messenger.
Our goal is to ensure that we follow up on each lead, turning them into guests that we can walk through the reservation process.
We also have a committed guest relations team that ensures guests receive personalized recommendations of activities and services that fit their needs. None of our team are commission-based. We strive to meet team wide goals together in sales and five star reviews.
Marketing Your Property for Maximum Occupancy
Are you wondering how to reach the masses and find a targeted audience for your rentals? Well, the Harris Rental Team can also take this task off your hands. Our team can ensure your rental makes it onto the highest-yield travel sites to increase the chances of your property being seen and booked.
We also use a blend of drone footage, photographs, and virtual tours to give viewers an interactive and immersive view of the rental space. This method is proven to drive the decision to book.
To increase your listing’s visibility, our team also uses both social media marketing and SEO strategies to ensure your property can be seen on the most widely-used social media channels and Google.
High-Quality Upkeep and Risk Mitigation
You can trust that guests will enter a clean and exceptionally-kept property. Our pre-arrival team checks each home before guest arrival to ensure that everything within the house is in working order and that the space adheres to our high standards.
Also, we are fully equipped to maintain the cleanliness of your space as we have an in-house housekeeping staff that can clean and maintain the property, so you don’t have to.
Lastly, we want you and your guests to feel that the property is secure. New door codes are generated for each guest, and the home is outfitted with window and door sensors to alert us of any potential breach. Wi-Fi networks are secure, and we have a dedicated tech support team to help residents with any tech issues they encounter.
We want you to get the most out of your rental property. Allow the Harris Vacation Rentals team to support you and ensure you get the return on investment that you seek.
