With all the benefits associated with short letting, there is never really a bad time to start your short letting journey. There is however a better time, and that time is now.
During the pandemic, many hosts decided to take their properties off the short-let market and return to traditional letting. This left a void in the supply which is still some way off pre-pandemic levels.
With this reduced supply, Pass the Keys Belfast is able to use our sophisticated pricing algorithm to really obtain per night rates that haven’t been attainable for some time. This combined with soaring occupancy rates means that our clients are currently seeing some incredible returns from their Airbnb hosting.
High Cleaning Standards
As Belfast’s premier Airbnb management company, we put cleaning at the forefront of our operation. We have gone down many different avenues to get this right and with a 95% 5/5 Airbnb cleanliness rating (you can’t keep everyone happy!) for our portfolio this year we firmly believe we have.
Oh and just to preempt any unlikely cleaning issues, we send each guest an SMS on arrival and ask them to rate the clean with any comments. If there are any issues, this gives us the opportunity to rectify them immediately.
Our much-loved Client Portal
If you are hosting on Airbnb as an individual you will of course have full access to your profile which will let you see bookings, revenue etc. When you decide to use a management company, they take control of your profile which means you lose access to all this important information.
Well…. not so when using Pass the Keys Belfast as your Airbnb management company!
Your very own Client Portal will show all bookings that have come in, the revenue of each booking, scheduled/completed cleans and maintenance, revenue reports AND even lets you block off the calendar if yourself, friends and family want to use the property at any time! Transparency is one of the elements that has elevated us to Belfast’s most trusted Airbnb management company and is something our clients often remark on.
Multiple Booking Platforms
Unlike other management companies that only use one booking platform, Pass the Keys Belfast utilises a number of booking channels such as Airbnb, booking.com, VRBO, Expedia and coming very soon, our very own direct booking channel. This means that no matter where the potential guest is searching, chances are high he or she will find your property! This means that your Airbnb property has the best chance of obtaining high occupancy at the optimum rates.
Professional Co-host of Airbnb
Probably our biggest accolade to date is the acknowledgement by Airbnb of Pass the Keys as a professional co-host. This means that for homeowners in Northern Ireland, Airbnb recommends Pass the Keys Belfast to act as their management company. We’ll take it!
