Vacation Rental Staging Guides

Seachange Vacation Rentals Staging Guides

Staging. Normally considered in real estate as the process of readying a property to appeal to Buyers to make it more attractive for sale. Seachange Vacation Rentals draws on our extensive experience in the contemporary vacation rentals industry to advise our Property Owners on how best to ready their resort rental properties for maximum Guest appeal, comfort, and practical use. Staging by any other name.

There’s a reason that Seachange named our YouTube channel, “How the Guest was Won. Tales from the Vacation Rentals Frontier” and used the stagecoach analogy. Are you familiar with the term, “Circling the wagons?”

Circle the wagons” or “circle your wagons” means that members of a team or group must work together to protect themselves from some outside danger. 

In this case members of our team are our Property Owners, our staff, and our vast range of vendor sub-contractors, all of whom work in partnership to offer the best possible Guest experience, protect and build the value of the real estate asset that our Property Owners have placed in our care, and curate better maintained properties for Guests and Property Owners alike.

Outside danger is the lack of professional standards in the fast developing, ever changing contemporary vacation rental industry.

Outside danger is the standard real estate rental company strategy of, “list anything, anywhere, any price.”

Outside danger is not preparing a property adequately for Guest stays, then letting any unattended issues just fall on the poor staff member who has the Guest emergency on call during their stay.

Outside danger is ignoring the maxim, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Outside danger is not paying attention to your pricing strategy and leaving open calendar availability sit unused.

Benjamin Franklin understood outside danger when he quipped, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”

Seachange Vacation Rentals sits at the intersection of real estate and hospitality. We manage a real estate asset for our Property Owners, and we manage a vacation experience for the Guest. Properties that are staged with the needs of vacationing Guests first in mind, and maintained with an attitude of continuous monitoring and improvement, will rent quicker, delivering Guests happy with their vacation choices, and delivering more revenue to delighted Property Owners.
