Staging a Vacation Rental Property is the best way to assure your rental stands out from the rest! Our design skills can transform your vacation rental into a more pleasing and attractive property so you get more bookings and increased ROI. At IVPM, we know vacation rentals are unique when it comes to interior design and decor. We understand that vacation rentals get wear and tear and that smart owners make value based acquisitions to ensure the property will always look sharp and appeal to prospective renters.
Here is a case study of Castillito del Caribe, an IVPM property that was staged immediately after purchase. The sellers had it listed for over a year with no offers. It was difficult to rent, even though it is in a premium downtown, oceanfront location. The decor was sparse, with stark white walls with very little on them, which made the listing photos unappealing. It had a raised, essentially useless pool (4’x 6’ x 18” deep) that was actually a tripping hazard. A new Baja-shelf Pool was an important anticipated improvement. It took just 5 weeks to demo the old one and build the new one. Cost: $15K USD
Labor cost to paint the entire house inside (11.5’ ceilings) and out? Less than $1000 USD. The new owners didn’t hesitate to invest in professional, high quality photos to showcase the home’s vibrant new colors to create an attractive rental listing. Photos make a world of difference in your listing! Note: those are the SAME purple chairs and red sofas in the before and after photos! Also, the wood carved mermaid was randomly hung close to the ceiling on the dining room wall. It’s a stunning piece, she was moved to the left of the Chichen Itza temple mural and now looks awesome! We can work with the pieces you already have.
Now that same vacation rental is a Premium Isla Mujeres listing, commanding top tier rents, with an impressive occupancy rate. The owners continue to improve and expand the property to maximize their ROI.
After “STAGING” your Vacation Rental, we’ll help you update the listing to increase your rental income by making it look great with sharp, high quality professional photos. Your listing photos MUST grab a potential guest’s attention fast, or they will quickly move onto another property!
