We take care of starting up across all procedures your tourist rental, holiday home, B&B or guest house in Puglia.
Managing a property as short-term rental or with one of the types of extra-hotel facilities (holiday homes, B&Bs, guest houses) in Puglia, has become increasingly complex over the years: new national and regional laws, increasingly fierce local and global competition and the new needs of increasingly demanding guests. For this reason it is important not to improvise and risk wasting money and time unnecessarily.
Our consultancy pays for itself already during the first year of the business.
What does our consultancy in the start-up of short lets and extra-hotel facilities include?
Analysis of the housing unit, advice on improvements and the preferred hospitality formula
We carry out an inspection of your property. We analyze the accommodation and draw up a report on what needs to be improved to meet our hospitality standards and what we recommend to improve for increasing the profitability of your investment. We advise you on which management formula is more convenient to opt for from both a legal and fiscal perspective.
Creation of social pages and Google My Business profile
We create social pages and Google My Business profile in a professional way for your property, in order to facilitate disintermediation. In this way both you and your guests can save the intermediation commissions of OTAs such as Booking or Airbnb.
Home Staging and professional photo shoot
We improve the aesthetics and usability of your accommodation. Small tricks make a huge difference in hospitality and in sales. A photographer specialized in our business sector will take care of the photo shooting for your accommodation.
Provision of templates for receipts, invoices, tourist lease agreements
Based on the type of property management chosen, we provide you with templates for receipts, invoices and tourist rental agreements in Italian and English in order to better manage your accommodation from a legal and fiscal point of view.
Market analysis and suggested price per period
We often hear hosts who proudly tell us at the end of February that they have already filled August, or complaining of not being able to fill the low season with a minimum 7-day booking. Unfortunately for those who are not inside our business sector, it is very complex to enter prices and minimum days following the seasonality of our business in Puglia. Mistakes are made that cost a lot in terms of income and coverage. For this reason we analyze the market related to your property and suggest you prices and minimum days for each period of the year, in order to increase the profitability of your property.
Training on laws, management of legal, bureaucratic and fiscal duties
It is very difficult to follow all the national and regional laws, which are constantly updated and increasingly complex. For this reason we train you on all the laws in force, on how to manage legal, bureaucratic and fiscal duties, avoiding any kind of problem you could face.
OTAs and guest management training
We train the host on how to manage the OTAs on which the accommodation ads are present and on how to manage guests during the booking, post-booking and their stay (check-in, guests support and check-out). In this way, fewer mistakes are made and better reviews are obtained, which is crucial for increasing both the average daily income and the number of days reserved.
Professional ads creation on the best OTAs
We professionally create ads and descriptions on the best OTAs for Puglia and synchronize their calendars so as not to risk overbooking. The minimum ads are on Booking and Airbnb, but we also recommend other OTAs on which it is possible to work very well based on the type of property and management you have chosen.
We provide you phone support in every aspect of the business. Especially in the first period when you’re not sure what to do, it’s a great way to have no doubts and be sure you’re doing great.
