With our in-depth research of the greater Spokane market and knowledge of the ever-changing art of listing platforms SEO, our focus is on every aspect of getting your property high occupancy rates.
Dynamic Personalized Rate Setting
Listing Optimization and Dynamic Personalized Rate Setting is worth between a 10% - 40% improvement in revenue as we use a variety of pricing metrics and algorithms as well as having a long history of analytical comps for nightly pricing to ensure that you are getting the most revenue possible from your investment. We do not use "Smart" pricing as we have found after running multiple market tests to be consistently far below the true market price. For example, "Smart" pricing cannot determine if a property that has a hot tub will book at a higher rate nor what that higher rate is that guests gladly pay to enjoy your unique features. It cannot distinguish between a property located downtown or one nestled in the woods. "Smart" pricing cannot give you a clear view of how you compare with other homes in your comp set other than lumping all "3 beds/2 baths" together. This is an inferior way to price your short-term rental that grossly underestimates your potential.
BnB Equity Group takes the time and does the work so that your nightly rate consistently changes accordingly to ensure that each night is booked at its ideal price and stays within the right price range to optimize occupancy and attract the right guests.
We know that it is not always easy letting strangers stay in your home so BnB Equity Group works hard to help ensure that your property hosts amazing guests prior to arrival. For an additional level of security, we take it one step further than what is enforced on the platforms security screenings by engaging with the guests from the first point of communication and throughout the booking process and stay. We have engaging conversations to get to know them better. This not only adds another level to the personal touch that we pride ourselves for but helps to keep everyone on the same page and encourage guests who will gladly take good care of your home and its possessions while they enjoy their visit. We take great pride in our personal communications that are fun and friendly while setting expectations which helps guest and owners alike feel safe and respected.
Guest Communication & 24/7 Emergency Contact
It is vital that guests know they can contact someone any time day or night. That someone is us. We are available 24/7 to communicate with your guests and for emergency contact support should the need arise. BnB Equity Group is committed to responding on time and making sure your guests are taken care of at all times. We also provide check-in and check-out instructions, local insights, recommendations, as well as answers to any of their questions before and after booking. When you use BnB Equity Group, you have complete peace of mind that your guests are having an exceptional stay and your property is being exceptionally taken care of.
Each listing site is its own animal with its own unique perks and quirks. Different sites attract a different base of guests. We do not limit your potential by placing your property on just one listing site. Sure this creates more work for us but you get to utilize our expertise with over 5 years of managing multiple listing sites and avoid the huge learning curve in discovering what works best on each platform. BnB Equity Group will create listings for your house on several listing sites to maximize the traffic viewing of your property and increase your booking percentage.
Detailed House Binder
In a perfect world, your renter would never need to reach out with any questions. They would have access to a binder with every answer they might need. If they ask a new question, we add it into the binder that day. Think of it as an owner's manual for your house. We not only spend hours crafting the perfect binder, but we print them on stylish full-bleed binders to ensure a quality product.
Hospitality Housekeeping Services
One of the most challenging aspects is keeping the home white-glove clean. BnB Equity Group understands that hospitality cleaning entails much more than standard housekeeping companies provide, therefore we hand select and professionally train each of our turnover specialists ensuring that every detail has been taken care of to our highest quality of standards. In addition to standard cleaning, we provide complete turnover service paying the utmost attention to detail that includes fresh linens, soft towels, and toiletries for each turn. This is why we consistently receive rave reviews on the cleanliness of the properties we manage which earns you more bookings and money on your investment.
Since we care about your guests' as well as our valuable turnover specialists' health, as well as our environment we only use Green Cleaning supplies that are natural and free from chemicals and artificial fragrances yet proven effective in killing germs and creating sparkling surfaces. By providing an environment that is free from products in which studies have shown to cause respiratory inflammation and to have neurotoxic effects on the brain and nervous system we leverage your home to be in a unique position to cater to those with severe allergies and chemical reactions. We have found this to be a growing segment within the population who choose to stay at short-term rental properties rather than hotels and we love leaving a small footprint in this beautiful world that we live in.
Having someone physically on the property taking care of it is crucial. The turnover specialists take care of the inside, and we ensure the outside is just as clean and taken care of as well. We create detailed checklists for our team to follow and regularly inspect their work to make sure it meets our high quality of standards. We can also manage landscapers to keep your property pristine. Just one more item off of your to-do list.
