Short Term Rental Staging

Maximum stars. Maximum revenue. Maximum Bookings.

The first part of putting our short term rental clients first is to set their property up for success. We want your property to shine! The average person visits just under 14 (13.79) pages when they visit Airbnb. This means your property has to really stand out to get more bookings. A well staged short term rental will get more revenue per night rented and have fewer vacancies. We can take care of all of that for you. 

Artistic Staging: Our interior design experts ensure your property not only meets but exceeds market standards, from stylish furnishings to regular decor updates, maintaining a fresh and appealing look.

Exclusive Artwork: We adorn your space with exclusive artwork by local artists that enhances your property's character and distinguishes your listing in a sea of options.

Professional Photography: With an eye for detail, we photograph your property, producing high-quality images that make a lasting first impression and draw guests in.

Artistic Staging

Immersive 3D Virtual Tours: We provide a virtual walkthrough of your property, allowing guests to explore and connect with the space from anywhere in the world.

Detailed Floor Plans: Our laser precise and informative floor plans help guests visualize the space, adding a layer of transparency and trust to your listing.

3D Virtual Tours

When you choose to list your property on Airbnb, VRBO, or any other short-term rental platform, you deserve the confidence that comes with knowing your space is presented at its best. Our comprehensive services are designed to ensure your property is not only attractive and functional but also that your investment yields immediate and maximized returns.

Pricing Your AirBnB

Dynamic Pricing Strategy: Our Approach to Maximizing Your Returns

At Ideal Real Estate, we take a sophisticated approach to pricing your vacation rental. Our recommendations are meticulously crafted, taking into account a multitude of factors that influence demand and profitability:

Comprehensive Market Research: Our research is exhaustive, encompassing not just Airbnb and VRBO, but all hospitality competitors, including hotels, to keep you ahead in a competitive market.

Historical and Current Booking Data: By examining past and present booking trends, we pinpoint the most profitable pricing strategies for your property.

Seasonal and Weekly Trends: Utilizing hyper-local data, we discern patterns specific to vacation rentals and hotels in your area, rather than relying on broad regional statistics.

Special Events and Holidays: Our predictive models anticipate demand surges from local events and holidays, allowing us to proactively adjust rates to capitalize on these opportunities.

Market Research

Short Stay Premiums: To offset the higher costs associated with short bookings and reduce short bookings that can create orphan days, we implement premiums for brief stays.

Lead Time Adjustments: We fine-tune prices for last-minute bookings and future dates to ensure high occupancy without compromising on revenue.

Orphan Day Strategy: We strategically price isolated booking days to fill calendar gaps, ensuring no potential income is overlooked.

Day-Specific Demand: Our analysis extends to daily demand fluctuations, ensuring every single day is priced individually according to the specific demand for each day. We continuously analyze local occupancy rates against traveler inquiries, adjusting your pricing in real-time to maximize revenue potential for any given day.

Dynamic Pricing Adjustments

Our dynamic pricing strategy is designed to ensure that your property achieves the highest possible Revenue Per Available Rental (RevPAR) and Return on Investment (ROI), with every factor carefully considered to enhance your rental's performance.

Vacation and Short-Term Rental Marketing

Get Maximum Reach with Targeted, Multi-Channel STR Marketing

Having a well staged and well priced short term rental makes no difference if you don’t get enough people to see it. In the competitive landscape of short-term rentals, effective marketing is essential.

Showcasing Your Property's Best Features: Your property is unique, and we make sure it shines. We write attention grabbing descriptions for your property, ensuring it stands out on Airbnb and other platforms. We highlight your property's unique selling points (USP), accentuating the features that make your space special and desirable to guests.

Maximizing Visibility Across Platforms: Visibility is key in the digital age. While AirBnB has about 60% of the short term rental market, listing only on AirBnB means that you are leaving 40% of the market unable to book your property. By using listing on multiple platforms, we increase demand for your property and grab that other 40%. Our full time attention to your property means there are no double bookings due to properties being booked on different properties, and no lost opportunities. 

Advanced Digital Marketing Techniques: We employ optimized digital marketing tactics to make your listing pop. With compelling copywriting and targeted SEO strategies, we enhance your rental's online presence, ensuring it ranks high in search results and catches the eye of potential guests. Our analytics-driven approach ensures that your property gets noticed by those most likely to book.

Strategic Marketing

We understand that a successful short-term rental is more than just a place to stay—it's an experience. We dedicate ourselves to marketing your property with precision and creativity, ensuring that each listing not only reaches potential guests but also resonates with them, turning interest into bookings and maximizing your investment.

Courteous and Efficient Guest Service

Setting Optimal Minimum Stay Lengths

Optimizing Occupancy with Dynamic Minimum Stay Lengths

We employ a strategic approach to managing your booking calendar to maximize revenue and minimize unoccupied periods, often referred to as 'orphan days'.

Adaptive Minimum Stay Requirements: We adjust minimum stay lengths dynamically, extending them during peak seasons and holidays to capitalize on high demand. Conversely, we reduce minimum stays when necessary to attract bookings that fill gaps in the calendar, ensuring your property remains as profitable as possible.

Gap Management for Enhanced Revenue: We consistently review your bookings to identify and fill orphan days efficiently. By reducing minimum stay requirements for these specific periods, we not only increase the likelihood of bookings but also maintain a steady stream of revenue.

Dynamic Min Stay Lengths

With Ideal Real Estate, you can trust that your property's booking strategy is as dynamic and responsive as the market itself, ensuring that your investment works as hard as you do.

Well Planned Security Precautions Stop Issues Before They Start

Effective Guest Screening: All our guests are reviewed to verify their identity, a good track record with previous stays, agreeing with our house rules, and answering our screening questions.

Video Doorbell: We install a video doorbell so both we and you can view the exterior entryway and have access to the audio there at all times. 

Smart Lock: We install a smart lock and give each guest a unique password that is only active during the hours of the guest's stay.
