Where will my property be listed?

We list properties on a wide range of rental platforms, in order to maximise the visibility of your listing and increase the chance of high booking rates. This may also depend on the location of your property, its price and other features. It may not be suitable to list your property on certain platforms if it doesn’t meet the audience’s needs on that particular site.

What makes a property suitable for short lets?

Although suitability depends on the individual property, there are several factors which usually make a house/apartment suitable for the market.


Being situated close to a City centre, a business centre, a key touristic attraction or a picturesque area will often mean a property has good potential as a short term let. Short stays are generally from tourists, or people travelling for business, so it makes sense that these locations are prime for holiday and corporate lets. However, demand for these properties will vary throughout the year depending on seasonality, current affairs, events and other factors.

Season and local events

Time of year is important when it comes to demand. During summer, and particularly during a period of hot weather, properties close to beaches, the seaside or nature can command higher prices. By the same token, apartments in the city centre can set a higher rent during busy periods, such as in the run up to Christmas, or during a major cultural or sporting event.

Furnishings and decor

The interiors of a property are a key factor in the short lets market. What makes a comfortable home is not necessarily what makes a sought-after holiday let. Guests generally expect holiday lets to have a slick, luxury hotel type aesthetic, with stylish furnishings which are nicely arranged and pristine surfaces. Properties which don’t have the right aesthetic won’t gain as many reservations on Airbnb and other platforms. Landlords can actually claim allowances to invest in furnishings from the UK government – which is something to bear in mind if your property is in a key location for the market.


Digbeth is a trendy and eclectic area, and has been named the ‘Coolest Neighbourhood in Britain’ by the Sunday Times! It hails independent cafes, shops, cinemas and art venues, which all draw in a range of visitors year round.

How do we adopt our pricing strategy?

Time of year

Summer will be a peak season for many properties, as will Christmas and the New Year period. Cultural events and current affairs will also affect the desirability of a property – for instance, apartments in the city centre will achieve more reservations during the business calendar, and perhaps experience a quieter period during August, when many employees are on annual leave.

Competitor pricing

The average price for properties of a similar size in your area will also be relevant in setting rent fees throughout the year.

Our team will look at the whole picture and set the most optimal price based on all relevant circumstances, maximising your income potential throughout the year.

Travel trends

Trends in our travel habits are constantly evolving. The rise of the staycation during the pandemic, for example, led to a surge in the number of short holiday lets during the summer months in the UK. Trends in people’s travel habits will also vary depending on current events, such as a city appearing in the news, such as when Birmingham was the City of Culture. Sevenstays will always stay abreast of relevant factors affecting your rental fee, adjusting it to increase your booking rates.

Getting started with SevenStays

Breaking into the real property sector for furnished holiday lets can seem challenging. Renovating or maintaining a property is expensive, but if you run a short lets business effectively – which Sevenstays’ expert team can do on your behalf – there is great revenue potential. There’s also the possibility of some financial assistance from the UK government. As a landlord or tenant hoping to rent out your property as a business, you may be entitled to certain allowances to assist with this, namely capital tax reliefs and capital allowances. Remember to check with your local council or mortgage provider that you are entitled to rent your property.
