There are many things to think about when renting out your home: money, keys, contract, tax rules etc. Below are some useful tips for homeowners thinking about renting out.
1. Advertising on Stugbasen.com.
Stugbasen AB accepts no responsibility for the content of an advert. Each homeowner has direct contact with the customer and is responsible that the content of the advert mirrors reality.
2. Increase credibility by giving full name and telephone number in the advert.
By doing business with strangers there is a certain risk for both parties. Most holidaymakers are careful about parting with their holiday money! Credibility is gained by showing a full name and telephone number allowing a customer to check details at eniro.se or hitta.se for example.
eniro.se | hitta.se.
3. Show photos
Many year’s statistics show that adverts without photos nearly don’t get any viewings at all. If you don’t have the possibility of getting photos into your computer to upload, you can be sent directly to Stugbasen and be published for a small administrative fee.
6. Recommend that your customers buy cancellation insureance.
In order to avoid disagreements on who has rights to what it is important for the homeowner and the customer to have a rental agreement (between each other). We also recommend that the customer buys cancellation insurance if it is not already included in their home insurance.
7. Keep your place on Google
All adverts on Stugbasen are after a time even registered at search engines such as Google. If you plan to rent out your home year after year it is smart to leave your advert active on Stugbasen even if all your weeks are booked. This keeps you position in the search engines index and improves the possibility of advancing up the hit list.
