Why use an Airbnb Property Management Service?

Autopilot your airbnb Hometime Property Management Service Sydney Australia

Hosting one or several, Airbnb properties can suck the time right out of your week. Most noteworthy, managing bookings, checking in guests, cleaning and property maintenance all take time.

Furthermore, the expectations of Airbnb guests are on the rise too and all it takes is one lousy review to sink your listings fledgling reputation.

Enter your superstar Airbnb property manager. Hiring a pro to handle everything from listing to property maintenance won’t only give you back time, it can seriously increase your property income too. It’s the mission of a great property manager to deliver a 5-star experience for your guests.

Even better, happy guests mean more 5-star reviews, boosting your properties rep and ensuring those bookings keep rolling in. All this adds up to more cash in the bank.

Many Airbnb property managers can also advise on the ideal rental price for your property and will adjust the value as demand fluctuates due to seasonality or changes in the market.

Here’s our pick of the top 3 Airbnb property service managers in Sydney, Australia:

#1 Hometime

#1 Choice Airbnb Co-host hometime property management sydney

Dave Thompson and William Crock are the co-founders of Hometime, passionate about property management and Airbnb hosts themselves. Shortlisted in the top 5 for StartCon’s StartUp Of The Year 2017, Hometime is the first home management startup in Australia to form a partnership with Airbnb.

Hometime services

First off, a property management service for Airbnb like Hometime will take over the entire short-term rental process, including:

  • A dedicated property manager
  • Listing optimisation + property photography
  • Rental price evaluation and guidance
  • Guest screening + communication + check-in
  • Housekeeping and property maintenance
  • Personalising the guest experience with a welcome pack + toiletries
  • 24/7 guest support

On top of that, Hometime offers an on-demand housekeeping service, for hosts who are comfortable managing their property but need help with cleaning and linen services between stays.

How Hometime’s property management service works

  1. Initial enquiry + welcome call – After completing the online enquiry form, you’ll receive an obligation free welcome call from a Hometime property manager.
  2. Property assessment – After the initial call your account manager will arrange a meeting with you at your property to provide a more accurate estimation of the income you can receive.
  3. Photograph the property and optimise the listing –  Hometime will organise professional photos of your property and optimise the listing to increase bookings.
  4. Management – They then take over the management of the property from bookings, managing guests, cleaning and property maintenance.

How Hometime’s on-demand Housekeeping service works

That’s not all! When you create a free Hometime account, a big benefit of the housekeeping service is the ability to sync your Airbnb calendar with Hometime’s cleaning schedule. This means a cleaning service is automatically booked after each guest has checked out.

  • review rating 5  I LOVE HOMETIME. As a Host of a premium property, housekeeping and attention to detail is such an important part of welcoming guests. Before finding Hometime I had terrible experiences with multiple cleaners. Starting with Hometime has completely changed my experience as a host and has taken all the stress our of it. Hometime have high attention to detail, know how to follow instructions, are technology based and driven and have incredible customer service. Thank you Hometime!

    review rating 5  I have been using Hometime (used to be known as Kayla) for more than 2 years now. They have the best time slots to accommodate my schedule. I use them for my rental apartment and i also use them for my own housekeeping at home. I have a list they follow closely and they always email back with the work done in an email with pictures. They make my life stress free and makes me happy to know that my apartments are well taken cared for. They are so good that i do not actually want others like my friends to now about it as selfishly i want them all to myself!! But they do need to be heard. I give in!! Try them and let them help you free time from your day!!
