As the hospitality and property sectors continue to merge, there has been an increase in demand for the full management services within the property sector. There has never been a better time to run your own short stay property management franchise.
According to a report by letting agent professional body ARLA Propertymark last year, nearly 50,000 properties have been changed from long-term to short-term letting. Its research, which was carried out by Capital Economics, found that a further 10% of landlords were considering offering short-term lets in the future.
Host & Stay Franchisees help more homeowners and partners unlock the potential in their homes, they list their rental properties on Airbnb, Booking.com, 60+ Booking Platforms including access to exclusive Platforms.
Franchisees handle the entire process for homeowners; including marketing, revenue, property, and guest management and generating income – Host & Stay's technology helps run every element of a booking.
Host & Stays' Franchise Partnerships are perfect for those individuals that are looking to take the next step in their career and want to open their own short let property management business but with the backing of Host & Stay’s brand recognition, established database and network.
Franchisees can find this route highly rewarding in the long run as cold start opportunities give potential franchisees the autonomy to set up the office and grow it how they see fit right from the beginning.
This is where an independent estate agency, letting agent, property management, or a property professional business wants to enhance their growth into a new market segment within the local property marketplace.
