Tell us a bit about yourself and your interest in Lincolnshire as a short-term rental hotspot...
Pass The Keys Lincoln launched in 2021, and I am extremely excited to be taking over as the new owner.
I began my own property management company in Lincoln in 2019 due to the increasing amount of development taking place and the subsequent surge in business growth.
Why is Lincoln good for short-letting on platforms like Airbnb?
Lincoln has fast become a hub of culture and activity for both tourism and commerce. Having spent 10 years as a nurse, I developed a high aptitude for service, a trait I strive to mirror within Property Management.
What drew you to partnering with Pass the Keys?
The main draw for me to join the Pass The Keys family was the vast amount of expertise and the 24/7 support through customized apps and technology systems. I was extremely excited to buy into the nationwide short-term management company as the Lincoln Franchise owner this year. Through the Pass The Keys model, I can now visualize a scalable property management service in Lincoln.
What is your top tip for homeowners short-letting their property on sites like Airbnb?
My top tip is to stand out with a property listing name that appeals to the customer. If there is a landmark that your property is close to, ensure that the name includes this landmark. Also, ensure you have attractive, professional photos showing your property at its best!
