As Chester proudly bags the title of 'Best Staycation Location' in the 2021 iTravel awards, the Airbnb market here is bustling more than ever. More guests mean more bookings, and subsequently, higher revenue streams. However, this uptick in activity brings along its own set of challenges, especially for hosts who manage their Airbnb properties on their own.

The Time Factor

Managing an Airbnb can turn into a full-time job if you're not careful. Recent estimates suggest that it can take over 40 hours a month to self-manage an Airbnb property. Is this a time commitment you're willing to make? With Houst’s Airbnb management services, not only would you have more time to focus on other pursuits, but you'll also potentially earn more due to our strategic marketing approaches.

The Hassle Factor

Imagine answering calls at all hours from lost guests or those who have misplaced keys after a night out. This is where Houst steps in to manage these concerns. We handle your guests from the moment they book, ensuring that they have a first-class experience, thus making the entire process hassle-free for you.

The Logistics Factor

Running an Airbnb involves multiple aspects: 24/7 guest support, high cleaning standards, sourcing hotel-quality linen, restocking toiletries, and so on. Beyond that, there's marketing, vetting guests, and pricing strategies that adapt to seasonal highs and popular local events. Quick responses to guest queries can help you rank higher in Airbnb searches, bringing in more bookings and better yields.

The Quality Factor

With heightened global health concerns, the demand for stringent cleaning protocols is higher than ever. Failing to meet these standards can result in poor reviews that harm your property's online reputation. Are you willing to take that risk? Or would you rather have experienced cleaners ensuring that your property is cleaned and sanitised to the highest standards?

The Backup Factor

Life is unpredictable. What happens when a boiler breaks down or you decide to take a holiday? Without a reliable management service, these issues can become major headaches that directly affect your Airbnb's performance and reviews.
