As we head into the fall and holiday seasons, you might be considering booking a rental for a weekend getaway or a holiday vacation. There are many different options for finding the perfect rental. If you are going the Charleston property management rentals route, these are things to look for that indicate you will be getting what you want at a reasonable price.
Look at the Quality of Rentals
Property management companies tend to offer a consistent level of quality that carries through all of their rentals. If you notice that they have some rentals that look subpar, then that could signal they don’t have consistent quality measures, which may mean that they are taking what they can get. Find a site with the quality that you are looking for throughout, not just in some of their rentals.
Ease of Booking
One of the conveniences that apps offer is ease of booking. If a site is confusing or you can’t get an answer or way to quickly book, you are wasting time. If a rental agency is on the ball and they invest in themselves, you should be able to do everything you need on the website and book it on the spot. With rentals going so quickly, if you snooze you lose – the fewer available rentals, the less likely it is you will get what you want.
Often, if a rental doesn’t have many pictures, that isn’t a good thing. Usually, rental companies try to hide things that don’t present well. If there aren’t images of major parts of the home or condo, then there is probably a reason. It is okay to ask the rental company for more images before you invest. There is no excuse in our technological world not to have as many images as possible to let renters know what they can expect.
Ratings and Reviews
Ratings and reviews will tell you all that you need to know. Previous renters are the best opinion to pull from. If a rental has one or two less-than-great reviews, it might just be the case that you can’t please everyone. But if they have several, you might not want to take a chance. Also, take the time to look past the stars and find out what specifically people are complaining about. Sometimes they are things you can live with, and other times they can ruin your experience. If there is one thing that you should definitely pay attention to, it is the people who are your eyes and ears to the rental before you arrive – those who have been there before.
