    The Key to Managing a Successful Holiday Let Property


    The holiday let market is big business in the UK and more specifically in Edinburgh. With events happening throughout the year, Edinburgh is a huge draw for tourists whether from near or far.

    This makes it an ideal location to have a holiday let property with plenty of opportunity to have a high occupancy rate.

    A holiday let is a let in a property that is under one month. There are many benefits to doing this sort of property management as opposed to the short-term or long-term lets. One considerable benefit being the tax advantages to the landlord.

    To ensure your holiday let property is a success; there are a number of steps that need to be taken:

    • Extensive advertising of the property

    • Making your property stand out from the rest

    • Ensuring your availability calendar is up-to-date

    • Ensuring the property is well maintained and clean

    • Between lets, ensuring the clean is carried out quickly to allow flexible check in/out times for guests

    The primary key to success for holiday let properties is repeat business so to get it right the first time could equate to years of success in the future.
