A temporary vacation property administrator is in charge of looking after – and in some cases even improving – your unused properties. This with the purpose of making your properties available to temporary rentals in Panama.
Let’s see how it works.
Digamos que tú o tu familia hicieron el esfuerzo por adquirir o mantener una propiedad en el interior del país. Puede ser en alguna playa o en áreas rurales de montaña o campiña.
Let’s say you or your family made the effort to acquire or maintain a property in the country. It can be a property at the beach, mountain rural areas or countryside.
Point is, this property – that requires maintenance and constant care – is there, waiting to be used.
In some cases, you could afford a carer: a person that gives the house maintenance before and after its use by the owner. Others can’t afford a carer, and for them, visiting the household implies cleaning all the time and making arrangements.
Now imagine this: a business dedicated to offering these properties up for temporary rental to local and international travelers. This too with the added value of extra income and, at the same time, looking after the house that gives you a headache from time to time.
Alkeyler is a Panamanian business that does exactly this: temporary house or property rentals. These can be used for vacation, but also to those who live nomadically or seasonally in certain places.
A pioneer in the business, Alkeyler is dedicated to offering high quality-completely equipped-carefully selected properties to travelers who are visiting the country for short stays.
Previous to accepting any guests, Alkeyler’s team meets up with the owners to coordinate possible improvements or adaptations for future tenants. Taking into account the property type, the team considers the type of people to receive in the future. After this, a listing is created on the agency’s website.
Alkeyler es una agencia full service de gestión de propiedad vacacional, en alquileres a corto, mediano y largo plazo. Como empresa ellos le dedican tiempo y cariño a la atención del huésped, a mercadear y promocionar la propiedad en internet y redes sociales, y a darle su debido mantenimiento.
Alkeyler is a full service vacation property management agency, in short, medium and long term rentals. As a business, they dedicate time and care to serve the guest, market and promote the property online and social media, and give it proper maintenance.
According to Carolina Courville, experienced entrepreneur and Alkeyler’s General Manager, temporary or vacation rental agencies must have certain key elements in the offers they make to the public.
“They must count with on-site personnel to assist in the property’s operation and maintenance; have technological tools to enhance communication with guests; have an online social media presence in trustworthy rental sites, and count on their website to reliably receive direct reservations for the property. All this in addition to marketing strategies for the positioning of the property.”
Traditional renting only generates 5% per year, meanwhile vacation renting generates up to 12% per year of investment’s return. This is if the property is managed properly.
