Choose the RIGHT Property Manager for Your Vacation Rental

It is fall 2018 at the Lake of the Ozarks and you may not be using your vacation property at the Lake of the Ozarks as much. Why not rent it out? Make some extra money on the side for the holidays. The Lake area is filled with property managers, so how will you go about choosing the right one. Our experienced property managers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give you a few tips for choosing the best one. For experienced property management, you can count on, call Your Lake Vacation at 573-365-3367.


Tips for Choosing the RIGHT Property Manager for Your Vacation Rental


Look Into The Property Manager's Screening Process.
Since damage is always a possibility when renting your home:

  • How does the company screen potential guests? 
  • Do they have age restrictions? 
  • What kind of questions do they ask prospective guests during the booking process? 
  • How do they handle damage if it occurs? 
  • Do they offer any type of damage protection? 

Have the company provide you with examples of how they have handled past damage situations.

Understand The Property Manager's Marketing Approach.
The next thing you will want to check with a prospective property manager about is how they market their properties.

  • Do they provide plenty of images, virtual tours, videos and detailed information about their properties? 
  • Do they utilize social media, digital marketing, and e-blasts? 
  • Is their website easy to navigate and is the presentation professional? 
  • In addition to their website, how do they advertise their properties?

Find a Property Manager with Experience.
Obviously, experience counts when trying to find the right property manager for the job.

  • Find out how long they have been managing property and how successful they have been in renting properties similar to yours. 
  • Beware of any company that promises a certain number or rental nights or guarantees a certain amount of rental income. 

However, a good vacation rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks will be able to provide you with potential income and rental night numbers based on their past history with similar properties.



Ask About The Property Management Company's Support Services.
Does the company offer:

  • Housekeeping 
  • Maintenance
  • Interior design
  • AC and appliance repair 
  • Landscaping 
  • Yard work 

Are they available 24/7? When renting out your home to vacationers, you never know what could go wrong. You don't want to be the one dealing with them at 2 am in the middle of the summer when your AC unit stops working and they can't sleep because it's so hot in there. When you're working with a great property manager at the Lake of the Ozarks, those types of issues will be handled by the property management company so you don't have to worry about a thing. They will have a list of trusted vendors that they can call in any emergency situation. In addition, you don't have to worry about cleaning the home in between guests and you have someone that's looking after your property while you're away.

Take the Best Road Trip Ever to the Lake of the Ozarks This Fall!

Road trips can be so much fun when you have got the right people and the best tunes with you! With the holidays right around the corner, now is the time to be making your holiday plans. Whether you need a last minute getaway right before the craziness of the holidays starts or you'd like to have your holiday celebrations somewhere different this year, Your Lake Vacation is here to help. We offer the best accommodations at the Lake of the Ozarks. From waterfront vacation rentals in Lake Ozark to options that have a lodge-like feel - you have come to the right place to book a Lake of the Ozarks getaway. Keep reading for a few road trip tricks and trips for Fall/Winter 2018.



Visit Family and Friends.
While many road trips are memorable adventures to new, exciting destinations, a large number of trips are to visit loved ones that live far away. Each year, 50% of road trips are taken to visit family and friends. These road trips are most common during the holidays when 93.3 million people hit the road to see family and friends for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.

Make a Few Pit Stops.
In addition to bringing some snacks for the ride, be sure to make a few stops to refuel your body along the way. With all of the delicious food options on the road, it should be easy to find your favorite fast food stops along your route. Not only is it important to grab a bite to eat every once in a while, but you should also stop to stretch.

Start with a Full Tank of Gas.
One of the most important aspects of a road trip is making sure you're always good on gas. Depending on the time of day and location that you are driving in, sometimes you won't find a gas station for hundreds of miles. If you're driving at night, fill up at any open gas station, even if your tank hasn't gotten that low yet. You never know when the next 24-hour gas station will show up.

Play Some Road Trip Games.
A great way to pass the time on long road trips is to play some road trip games. The most popular games played on a road trip, aside from those on your smartphone, are I spy, the license plate game and 20 questions. If you have young children, be sure to bring along plenty of toys to keep them occupied, and a portable DVD player or tablet is also a great option to keep them from getting bored and restless.

Take It Slow.
Don't be in too much of a hurry to get to your destination. Driving too fast can hurt your fuel economy and increase your road trip expenses. Avoiding aggressive driving can actually improve your gas mileage by up to 33%. Minimize driving in the fast lane, changing lanes and merging a lot, and drastically changing your speed as much as possible.


Make the Lake of the Ozarks Your Destination This Fall!


The Lake of the Ozarks has several festive holiday events for you to enjoy. There is fun for all ages to be had here.

Reviews


"Such a lovely property! We loved staying at Starboard Shores 2! There were 7 of us there for the weekend and it was spacious, well-maintained and so cozy! Would 100% rent it again! :)"
Date of arrival: July 19, 2018

"Fantastic. Great view,clean, within reach of everything. I stayed here with another couple, four adults total and five kids. We were very comfortable. The views are fantastic and we were basically right in town. Within walking distance. The only draw back, and this is minimal, is that the drive way to get to the property is a bit steep. Some people may not be comfortable with it. But 100% worth it."
Date of arrival: July 5, 2018

"Fantastic! Great cabin in a great location. Clean and comfortable. Only thing it needed was a fire pit for s'mores."
Date of arrival: June 27, 2018



"Great Lake Vacation. This property worked out perfect for our group of 8 guys on a golf trip. The beds wee comfy and the finishes on the interior were very nice. The balcony was a great spot to hang out and enjoy views of the lake and the location was better than expected as we were able to walk to bars and restaurants on the strip in the evening. We would definitely stay here again!"
