Buying a Wee House to Let: Sally Shares Her Experience
Our HR Manager Sally saw the investment potential of buying a Wee House to let and has just launched The Wee Dipper Cottage, an ultra-cosy one-bedroom holiday rental property in Maybole, South Ayrshire.
Sally’s Top Tips for Holiday Letting
|Consider your market
Who do you think your property will suit? Who do you think the local area will attract? Are you pet friendly? Family friendly? Coastal? Near hill walking and path networks?
|What are your selling points?
Decide on these and follow through with simple additions to your holiday home – a secure garden, a place to store paddle boards, walking boots, children’s toys, garden furniture a fire pit ,outdoor rugs and cushions etc. The small details can make all the difference!
Bookings and questions around potential bookings come at any time and you need to respond quickly. Use the platforms and apps available from letting agencies to communicate with guests to ensure there is a secure log for reference.
|Love the local area
And provide guests with information on where to visit and what to do. This will add value to the visit and they may want to return to explore more. Weather can make a huge difference to your visitors’ enjoyment of the area so it might be an idea to suggest some wet weather activities too.
