Why Work with a Local Property Management Company?

In today's world, with technology at our fingertips, the way we do business (in any business) has changed dramatically. Technological advances in the vacation rental industry have changed the way we advertise, the way we market, how we gain access to properties, how we book guests, etc. We no longer have land line phones, VCR's, keys, paper contracts and we don't do bulk mailings, have phone book ads or do much, if any, print advertising. However, for us, the one thing that hasn't changed is that local, personal touch.

Vacation Rental Management 

If you wanted to, you could manage your vacation rental at the Lake of the Ozarks from another state (or country), book everything online, take your digital payments (credit cards, Paypal) set up your guest entry code via computer to your keyless entry lock and all you really need is someone to clean your property. Easy! This can save you 25% to 40% in management fees, which is great, until you have a problem or your guest has a question.

What happens when the housekeeper forgets to clean your property and your next guest shows up to a dirty home or condo at the Lake of the Ozarks? What happens when the AC goes out at 11 pm at night and you don't know who to call to get it fixed, the guest wants a refund or to move to another property, and you only have one property? What happens when the home has been invaded by ants, there is a water leak, the guest cannot find the property or they don't know where to launch their boat?

Property Management Services 

That is why with a local, professional vacation rental manager at the Lake of the Ozarks, you normally get all of these services as part of their management fee. Over the years, our owner has personally helped someone launch their boat at midnight because they couldn't find the boat launch. He has taken floor fans to a condo after 10 pm because the AC went out and no one could fix it until the next morning. He has battled ants in the kitchen, helped stop water leaks, communicated with guests while their power was out and helped them find their property when they arrived at 3 am after driving all night.

At Your Lake Vacation, we physically walk through each property prior to guest arrival to ensure that they are clean and working properly. We have local people answering our phones so that we can give guests accurate directions, answer questions and give suggestions on local restaurants and attractions. When there is an emergency, we are here 24/7 to help them and when the AC goes out, we have repair companies that work with us, even late at night, to help make our guests comfortable. We even have a local office in the heart of Osage Beach across from the outlet mall, which includes a visitor's center (stop in and see us) with all the latest coupon books, magazines, brochures, etc.

Your Lake Vacation is your premier vacation rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks. For more information about our property management services, give us a call at 573-365-3367.
