Here Are 4 Tricks For Managing An AirBNB Remotely Like a Pro

It is not easy to manage your Airbnb remotely, but it can be accomplished. Setting up a solid business process will help you run your rental from afar and ensure a steady income. Here are 4 valuable tips for setting up the proper management process so that you can handle your business remotely:

-Hire a Professional Cleaner

-Offer Self Check-In

-Use Vacation Rental Software to Keep Things Organized

-Find a Maintenance Team You Can Depend On


1. Hire a Professional Cleaner

Hiring a professional Airbnb cleaning service means you will not need to be on-site for every guest handover. A professional cleaner can handle basic tasks after the last guest leaves, such as disinfecting and cleaning. In the meantime, you can enjoy your vacation or concentrate on strategic tasks.

In addition, a cleaning service will also take care of hard-to-reach places to make sure your rental is clean. Professionals are responsible for getting into all the nooks and crannies to ensure that you have a sparkling clean property.

 

 

Make sure to provide a customized cleaning checklist to the cleaning company to ensure a consistently high level of cleanliness.

 

2. Offer Self Check-In

To ensure your guests can access your property without having to meet you in person, think about arranging for a self-check-in. You could either opt for a solution such as a lockbox or consider installing an electronic or smart lock.

 

The Schlage Encode Smartlock provides keyless self-check-in for guests and staff through smart locks. Guests can only access your property with the proper pin code generated via your smartphone. You can set temporary codes for guests that expire upon check out or permanent codes for your cleaners and maintenance staff to use when they need. You can also see who comes in and out of your home (and at what time) via the Schlage app.

 

Remotely managing entry to your rental via an app also means that help is readily available if you need it. You’ll get instant notifications if somebody needs assistance with accessing the property and will immediately know when there’s an unauthorized person attempting to enter. 

 

With smart locks and management apps, you’ll always be in control of your entries and exits. They will also help you avoid inconvenient scenarios such as the cleaning company entering the property before guests’ checkout.

 

3. Use Vacation Rental Software to Keep Things Organized

Managing your business remotely is quite a challenge, but automation can help. You can keep an eye on things and ensure that everything is under control, even when you’re not local to the property.

 

 

Guesty is a vacation rental software that allows you to control all guest communication, bookings, and alterations. It also makes it possible to monitor and manage day-to-day property management operations. With Guesty, you can:

 

Manage your Airbnb, Booking.com, and Vrbo reservations from one place. Synchronize calendars with iCal to prevent double-booking your home between the different platforms.

 

Make your guest communication more effective by organizing all of their conversations in a single inbox.

 

Use automated messages to keep guests informed at every stage of the booking process.

 

Use the reporting feature to keep up with your business’s profit and loss and statistics.

 

Online property management software provides you the control to manage your teams remotely and get in touch with them on the go. You can add and monitor tasks assigned to team members remotely through the web software or mobile app.

 

4. Find a Maintenance Team You Can Depend On

If you manage your Airbnb remotely, hiring maintenance professionals is one of the most critical aspects that will help you sustain it. You need to have trustworthy and available people for any request at any time.

 

Making a list of vendors that can help remotely with your Airbnb might include: 

 

 -Backup cleaning services 

 

 -Plumbers

 

 -Handymen

 

 -Electricians 

 

 -HVAC repair service providers 

 

 -Landscaping and pool/spa cleaning services 

 

 -Pest control

 

Maintenance issues have always been a burden on short-term rental management owners. No matter what happens, your guests will expect you to take action immediately. If it takes too long for you to respond, guests may leave bad reviews, which will lead to decreased revenue.

 

When choosing vendors, look for a trusted company. It would be best if you had someone to take care of repairs and urgent tasks without any delay. A 24/7 service from your team of vendors is essential to manage your Airbnb effectively.

 

Conclusion

Planning and setting up a system to manage an Airbnb remotely is essential for running your business from afar. The four tips in this article can help you establish a workflow that will allow remote management of your company more effortless than ever before! By establishing the perfect system, you will attract more bookings and get more positive reviews.

A true local to South Florida, I was born and raised right here in Broward County. As an avid traveler, I have always loved staying in AirBNBs because it allowed me to have a more authentic experience of the city I was exploring. When presented with the opportunity to become a host in my hometown I was thrilled to bring that same experience to people visiting South Florida.
