Short term let management
Sevenstays are your trusted short term rental management team in Manchester. We have expertise and experience in maximising the occupancy rate and income of properties in Manchester and its surrounding areas. We monitor market trends and events taking place in the city in order to optimise the price of your Airbnb listing; for example, around the time of cultural or sporting events, your property may command a higher price. Working with us, you have peace of mind that your rental income is in safe hands.
Our end-to-end management services encompasses the entire short let process, from preparing a listing to cleaning the property after guests check out. We list your property on multiple platforms, like Vrbo, to maximise exposure and increase your occupancy rates. Our state-of-the-art tech means that you can view your reservations at any point, and amend your block-out dates.
We also prepare your property with a view to enhancing the guest experience, which is a sure fire way to gain positive reviews. Guests are more likely to leave four and five star reviews about properties which are well decorated, professionally cleaned, and stocked with amenities. We take care of all of this, so you don’t have to.
Is my property suitable for short term rentals?
Don’t worry – Sevenstays are led by a team of property experts. We can evaluate your property’s suitability for the short term rental market, free of charge and with no obligation to sign up. If we think your property is better suited for long term rentals (i.e. those longer than six months), we’ll refer you to our partner service, SevenLiving, who specialise in the long-term lets market.
There are many factors which determine whether a property is suited to the short lets market. In particular:
- Location. Proximity to cultural and business centres or tourist hotspots, such as Spinningfields and Deansgate (where many large companies have offices) or the football stadiums.
- Amenities. Short term let guests generally want to see amenities like an ensuite bathroom.
- Furnishings and presentation. Well presented, stylish properties attract more guests – they want a luxury experience
These same factors also determine the rental price you can command. Properties which are close to tourist attractions and the city centre can command a higher fee, especially at certain times of year, such as summer, Christmas, or during a major cultural or sporting event. In order to maximise your income, our team will advise changing your rental price throughout the year, in line with market demand. For example, if you rent a property close to the MEN Arena, you can charge a higher price during the week of a popular concert.
