Is Your Vacation Home Ready For Spring Break Renters?
Here Are A Few Tips To Get Prepared
With spring approaching, the city of Orlando is preparing for the thousands of people that will descend upon to Florida for their respective spring breaks, and if you will be renting out to vacationers, you should be doing the same. Since different schools celebrate spring break in different weeks and months, the season can last both March and April, bringing in a steady rental occupancy. If you are renting out your home for sale near Disney World, now is the time to get it ready.
Check All Utilities For Maintenance Repair
Stay ahead of the renting game by doing a routine check up on all of the utilities in your home for sale near Disney. You don’t want to wait for the A/C to break or the water pump to leak during one of the busiest times of the renting year. Plus, if the air conditioner goes out on a family of six during the middle of April in Florida, you most likely will get a few bad reviews.
Deep Clean The Home
You’ll want to make a great first (or second) impression on your spring break renters, so make sure to have your vacation home deep cleaned by a professional before any renters come to stay. Top priorities:
- Steam clean the carpets
- Dust from the floor to the ceiling
- Stock up on essentials (toilet paper, paper towels, soap)
Stock Up On Pool Supplies
Spring in Florida is perfect weather, plenty of sunny days and breezy winds. Your guests are most likely coming from out of state or out of the country, and will want the chance to soak up the sun and spend time at the pool. A good vacation home will come stocked with plenty of pool supplies for guests, i.e., beach towels, pool toys, sunscreen, and tanning lotion.
Stay in the Know With Theme Park Collateral
There’s a good chance that some of your guests have never been to Orlando before, let alone any of the theme parks. It’s not your job to help them navigate the city of Orlando and all it has to offer, but providing maps and directions to local restaurants, event schedules, and other helpful information will ensure your guests get the most out of their trip, and will ensure that they will be repeat renters. It’s also handy to keep information on theme park rates and hours for your renters to pursue.
