It is a management service that manages seasonal rentals on behalf of the owner, including reservation management services, cleaning, check-in and check-out of guests, communication with guests, etc.
Although we are talking about Airbnb management services, we could equally talk about short-stay services, holiday rental management, property management services, apartment management, etc., as in fact guests mostly make reservations not only through Airbnb, but also on many platforms that have emerged in the last few years.
The marketing decision to advertise agencies like UNO as an “Airbnb management service” has been made by global management agencies themselves in the past to support Airbnb’s success. This is because the platform is the most high-profile in the general public. Many such agencies are found in the UK.
Before the general public was truly aware of the range of management services offered, many owners managed everything themselves or (more or less successfully) perfected their own management of their property with the help of a cleaner, neighbors or even friends. Even today, most roommates in Slovenia do it alone, while in the world such a service has become a permanent practice. That is why in Slovenia we still cannot talk about professional rental of real estate for tourist purposes, but in most cases this represents a kind of additional income.
Why should I opt for such a service?
Our potential clients usually contact us because they want to rent out their property and they simply do not have the time to do so, and they see our service as a profitable business without having to invest their time and effort.
Communicating with guests, cleaning, managing reservations, receiving and checking out guests, etc., is certainly more time consuming if someone is not dealing exclusively with it. The added value of our service is that we organize the entire rental management process.
Another aspect of our work is creating rental value. At UNO management, we are always looking for how we can provide our customers with a higher price and offer them better services, instead of simply focusing on how we will manage the logistics related to holiday rentals. Of course, the key element of our work is logistics, but we must not stop there! It is also about creating added value.
For example; Professional photos? Increases your visibility up to twice. Dynamic prices adjusted to seasonal demand? 20 to 40% increase in booking requirements. Advertising on Airbnb, Booking.com, HomeAway platforms? 30 to 80% increase in booking requirements.
An essential part of our mission is to maximize rental income for our clients through expertise or technical skills that they cannot realize on their own in order to achieve more frequent rentals at higher prices.
