Can you believe the summer holidays are over already and it’s September? The summer is always a busy time for us at Redfern Property Management.

Typically, the majority of our student let tenancies come to an end in June and July, which means a lot of work inspecting, cleaning, returning deposits and creating inventories for the students joining us. In an odd way, we really enjoy this time of year – generally the office is a little quieter, and we get to spend time away from the screen and in the houses.

We’ve always felt it’s important for us to spend the time every summer inspecting our houses, cleaning and creating inventories – it’s a great way to make sure you know each house well, we can recommend improvements or maintenance to landlords and ensure that the standard of properties we let on an annual basis remains high.

This summer, we’ve branched out too, into complete holiday home management. We’ve been working with landlords in Aberystwyth over the summer to rent their properties on shorter, holiday lets during the summer months.

Our complete holiday home management package includes photographs, guest information booklet, advertising the property online, taking bookings, finances and welcoming the guests to the property. We ensure that they have a great time in the property and local area, and clean the property ready for the next set of guests.

It’s been a really enjoyable experience, although still letting a property, there’s definitely a difference in terms of welcoming people who haven’t been to Aberystwyth before, or welcoming those who are returning to the area. We’ve found it really heart warming and rewarding.

If you have a property that has a gap in tenancies, and would like to look at a short term holiday let, then get in touch. We’d love to visit and offer our advice.
