"I have a philosophy in life called keep it simple. I don't live to work, I work to live. This is the first time I've leased this property on Airbnb. A house allows me to have vision of all the revenue and all the expenses associated with the apartment. They work as a well-oiled machine. They strive very hard to keep both myself and the tenants happy."

GET STARTED

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

Here’s all you need to know about
Houst Partnership.

Why would I partner with Houst instead of managing my properties by myself?

When you become a Houst Partner, you instantly become part of a global brand with experts in every area of property management. We remove all the growing pains associated with expanding your business. Our partners can choose the specific services they need and want. You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you prefer.

Can I start with no properties?

Yes, our service is suitable for all types of experiences, from those looking to start from scratch to large property developers. Our offering extends to larger, well-established entities managing multiple properties, aiming to improve operational effectiveness and increase profits through the optimisation of channel and revenue management.

Who determines the cleaning fee?

The cleaning fee is set by you, the local hosting partner. However, Houst provides parameters (minimum and maximum figures) that you should operate within. Ultimately, it is up to you to set the rates.

How does the lead acquisition and pre-qualification team assess the suitability of a property for my business?

Our dedicated team will schedule a growth strategy meeting with you to understand how you’d like to scale your business and how we can achieve it. Based on the discussion, our team will qualify leads based on location, property quality, size, client motives, duration of management required, and property availability. We will handle all sales for you, and you will be responsible for onboarding the properties.

I have many connections with properties myself. What happens when I bring a property onboard?

Our partners are financially rewarded for every property they bring onboard, even without the involvement of the Houst sales team. You will receive a financial kick-back, which will be discussed in more detail during your discovery meeting.

What technology do partners get access to?

Our partners get access to our full tech stack, including our holistic property management software, cleaning app, guest communication portal, host dashboard, and linen organisation software. All of this is included and will power your business.
