Tips to Advertise your Cape May Vacation Rental

Cape May News, Vacation Rental News - admin - June 18, 2019

Keep your listing description updated

Make sure your Cape May listing is updated with the latest information about your rental. Your availability calendar should be updated and correct. Photos should be recent. Renters who review listings want complete information or they will move on to the next listing. Our best performing rentals have listings that are complete and accurate.

Respond to inquiries quickly.

Owners who respond quickly to inquiries are more likely to book their Cape May rental. Why? Renters have already viewed your property and are interested. The faster the response the less likely renters will look elsewhere for a rental.

Photos, Photos, Photo

Photos are the most important element to any listing.

Think about how your photos will be displayed. There should be a flow that helps the potential guest understand which rooms connect where. 

Consider including a detailed floor plan as a photo. 

Use plenty of photos in your listing to maximize its visibility. Studies have shown guests are 80 percent more likely to learn more about a Cape May home when there are more than 20 photos. 

Get reviews

Potential guest read reviews. They want to see what others are saying about your Cape May rental. Reviews can make or break your vacation rental. If you put enough focus on the guest experience, you’ll generate a positive feedback loop that leads to more bookings, and higher occupancy rates.

Say No To Service Fees

Cape May News, Vacation Rental News - admin - June 5, 2019

Airbnb is now going to eliminate guest fees for property managers and hotels beginning June 4. What does this mean for the vacation rental market?

The big vacation rental listing services are now moving away from the service fee model where guests are charged a fee to book. The new tactic will be a service fee where the owner of the rental property will pay a percentage fee per rental transaction. This new model will drive more guest business to the sites but may very well backfire with owners. Owners will be less likely to list a rental knowing they now have to pay a percentage of each rental for the “privilege” of listing on a big vacation rental listing service.

What can owners do? Find local vacation rental listing sites that do not charge any service fees at all. and do not charge service fees.

Simply browse our listings and contact the owner directly. Bypass the fees for the same property and save money.
