Irish Holiday Homes Wanted – Special Promotion
The UK’s favourite holiday letting agency, cottages4you, is experiencing a growth in demand from people wanting to take a holiday in Ireland. In response, the agency is actively seeking additional holiday homes – so, if you’d like to make money by renting out your property to holidaymakers read on.
Who are cottages4you?
cottages4you specialises in holiday cottage hire and is the UK’s largest holiday letting agency, with a great reputation stretching back more than 30 years. Its unrivalled size, track record and property range makes it the ‘go-to’ organisation for people looking for a holiday rental. Thanks to a boom in demand, the agency is currently recruiting holiday properties into its popular portfolios marketed at visitors looking to rent in Ireland. It promotes these properties with the industry’s biggest annual £multi-million marketing budget which it spends on things like brochure production, award-winning websites and advertising campaigns for TV, newspapers and magazines.
cottages4you’s Irish agent, Jacinta Doolan, says, “We choose properties we know offer the perfect mix of comfort and facilities, great location and competitive pricing. Often, property owners don’t even realise that their second home is suitable, so we say it’s always worth giving us call, just in case. Naturally, we’re keen to ensure our owners feel comfortable with their decision to rent, and we’re determined to maximise their returns through successful marketing.”
With the right agency, letting is easier than you think
cottage4you’s popularity with customers comes partly from the company’s ability to give holidaymakers exactly what they want, as Jacinta goes on to explain, “Our customers tell us the most important thing for them is a welcoming atmosphere on arrival. This can be as simple as offering clear directions and making sure that the house is clean throughout, or making sure a property’s décor and furnishings complement each other. Little touches help too, like greeting guests personally and leaving a modest welcome gift like a bottle of wine. Having car parking, tidy gardens and good garden furniture are also important to holidaymakers, while providing linen and towels is essential in cottages for rental. Many of these things are common sense and easy to achieve, and we have friendly Regional Managers to help guide owners through the whole letting process face-to-face.”
Making sure the price is right
If letting your property sounds like something you might be interested in, then you’re probably wondering just how much you could earn and what kind of rent to charge guests. Jacinta explains, “Value for money is a huge factor in the popularity of our holidays, so we’re committed to making sure that we offer our customers a good deal without hidden extras. At the same time, we think that rental charges should reflect the quality of the property, so we closely monitor the market and use sophisticated ‘dynamic’ pricing to really maximize the year-round financial returns for our owners.
What can I expect to earn?
The income owners can expect to earn from their cottage rental will depend largely on four factors:
• The number of people the property can comfortably sleep
• The quality and comfort of the accommodation
• Whether the owner wants to reserve any weeks in the home for themselves.
cottages4you works hard to make sure that every owner’s income is as generous as it can be for their particular property. The agency also uses strategic pricing to provide a year-round income that even takes seasonal ups and downs into account.
Why now is the perfect time to let
In recent years, the cottage rental market in the UK and Ireland has been boosted by the growing number of people choosing to spend their holidays on home shores. Often these holidaymakers are looking for something slightly different when they search for a cottage to rent, and that means that a wide range of properties are suitable for this market. The best news for owners is that the growth of the ‘Staycation’ sector shows no sign of slowing down, and that means greater demand for holiday homes to rent.
