Holiday rentals in Mallorca
Summer in Mallorca is undoubtedly the best time of year to rent out your holiday home, although there is also a lot going on in the holiday rental segment on the island around Christmas and Easter. So in this post, we tell you everything you need to know to use your vacation rental license most efficiently.
How did you prepare your home for rental?
The first thing you should do is prepare your home so that your future tenants can enjoy their stay to the fullest. Besides preparing your property, you can also carry out small renovations. Remember that a small detail like changing the air conditioning or adding an extra bed can allow you to rent out your property at a better price.
It goes without saying that you always check everything beforehand to make sure everything is clean and that there are no defects of any kind that could cause complaints on the part of the renter. In particular, remember to check the air conditioning and water, whether there is hot water, the faucets and bathrooms in the house, the lights, the internet connection and similar things that you would also find a problem in the accommodation yourself when you come as a renter would.
In addition, it is also a good idea to check the insulation of the house over the long term, so that drafts do not easily enter or the roof leaks, and heavy rain causes this to drip inside the house. Because all this will save you a lot of problems, discussions and bad reviews.
Major and inexpensive renovations or customizations that may interest you
It may seem silly, but small changes can increase the value of your property exponentially. That’s why we leave you here a list of recommendations that you can easily implement without a doubt:
- New/sharing pictures or photos. Let’s be realistic, few people these days find it comforting to sleep with a picture of their great-grandfather over their bed, so decorate your home with minimalist and modern works, and their tenants will surely be grateful. In general, you should also remove any other personal decorations.
- Decorative flowers, trees or plants. These will give the apartment a different accent and a more pleasant atmosphere. Even if you are near a busy road, trees or a mound of earth will provide good noise protection, which is another plus for your tenants. In general, if you have a garden, it should also look neat.
- Furniture customization. We think a quick visit to Ikea (or a chat with your trusted interior designer) can be a great idea to improve the look and feel of the vacation home, especially especially if there is any furniture in the house that is worn out or a bit out of date.
- Terrace. If you have a terrace or balcony, it is also very important to use it as a highlight!! Pay attention to keep them in good condition. Install a small awning, or buy a garden table or chairs, and some plants or small palm trees to create a pleasant ambiance. Be playful, and even with a little imagination you can create a real eye-catcher in the form of a Mediterranean vintage chillout corner out of old furniture painted in pastel colors and some flower pots with palm trees!
- Put some fruit/vegetables from the neighbors (if you have farmers as neighbors in the country) or weekly market on the kitchen wefts, an ensaimada on the dining table, or stock the fridge with some local produce. Your tenants will love it!! It is precisely these details that make the difference. And maybe a small card with “Bienvenidos! We are happy about your stay, here are a few little things to immerse yourself in your vacation, and at the end we would also be happy about a review at XXXXX! :)”
