Vacation Rental Pricing for Owners

Cape May News, Vacation Rental News - admin - March 25, 2020

One of the most important factors in owning a vacation rental in the Cape May area is to set your rates properly for your rental. If you price too high you may leave money on the table. However if you price too low you are not capturing the full value of your rental. So how do you determine the best rate for your rental. Comps. Study pricing of similar homes in your market. If your home has a highly desirable offering – such as ocean front, bay view or ocean view this should be front and center, and reflected in your pricing.  Travelers will pay a premium for these locations.

However, there may be aspects of your home you don’t even know are attractive to guests. In Cape May, for example, we have many guests who prefer the historic district and its location nearer to the mall than the ocean. Travelers want the convenience of the shops and restaurants. Some travelers just want the famous large Cape May porch experience where they can sit back and people watch. Others prefer a street where the horse carriages run. It’s critical to identify these selling points that may not be obvious at first and price accordingly.

Cape May is not your typical shore town. The town has now become a year round destination. Gone are the days of renting just in the high season. In Cape May the season now starts on Valentines Day and runs through the New Year. To capture the additional rent owners need to scale their pricing based on the time of year and the volume of business.

Know your market and adjust your pricing accordingly.

Tips for Rental Owners

Cape May News, Vacation Rental News - admin - March 17, 2020


Update your Description

Updating your description will provide your guest with the latest changes you may have made to your rental.
Don’t take a set-it-and-forget-it approach to your home’s listing. It should be a living piece of copy that you update regularly. Be sure to revisit your listing when you do the following…

Improvements to your home, such as performing renovations or adding new amenities

Changes to local attractions. bars, restaurants and activities.

Make your description seasonal. In the winter, words like warm and cozy are far more enticing than summer words, such as breeze and sunshine.

Tips for your Cape May Rental

Cape May News, Vacation Rental News - admin - February 13, 2020

Provide a Manual for your rental guests

Want to avoid late night calls from guests regarding simple issues at your rental? Create a thorough guest manual with details about your rental.

Your TVs, sound systems, kitchen appliances, and hot tubs all have the potential to thoroughly confuse guests. A manual will help familiarize your guests with that particular amenity. It’s crucial to create a book or binder that details every item or function in your home. A few examples include:

  • How to program the thermostat and suggestions for settings
  • How to use your TV.
  • How to reboot your wi-fi
  • Cable Company phone numbers
  • Condo Rules
  • Check-in and Out times
  • Emergency help number for onsite issues
  • Local hospital and emergency care facilities.
  • How to use entry systems, electronic locks, and gates
  • Which remote controls pair with which audio/visual functions
  • How to operate kitchen appliances.

This manual should also include local attractions and history, any recommendations you have, a warm welcome, and instructions for departure.
