Advantages of short-term renting

Get to know the main advantages of renting your house on the short renting market.

Guaranteed payment

The full payment of the stay is made at the time of check in so there is no risk of payment failures or late payments.

Reduced risk of deterioration

Being able to visit the property whenever necessary, between each reservation, allows you to control the state of the property and ensure the perfect maintenance of it.

Availability and flexibility

When renting for short-term, since the house is occupied for short periods of time, the owner can visit and even use the house when needed.

Less worries

Delivering the house to a Airbnb management company that handles the entire process allows you to increase income without the hassle of handling the whole process.
