How to let a property

The local management of the property consists, essentially, of key management and cleaning. If the administrator can manage the keys to your apartment at a set price per year or per rental and send a cleaner after your clients have left you are halfway there. If the administrator is not interested you may want to change administrator - easily done if there are several homeowners that want to let their property.

Where to advertise your property

All InCalabria and Calabrian Services clients can list for a small discounted fee of €25.00 per year on the holiday lettings section of the website. 

How much to charge

Have a good look around on what's on offer in your area, and position yourself slightly lower. Once you have built up a number of satisfied clients, good reviews and testimonials, perhaps some returning clients you can try upping the price a bit every year.

Things to keep in mind are the unique selling points and features of your property and set the price accordingly:

  1. Location (near sea, sea views, countryside, towncentre). Distance to airport, beach, bars, restaurants etc.
  2. Property features (number of bedrooms, bathrooms, air conditioning, internet access, tv etc)
  3. Development features (pool, bar, restaurants, etc)

Generally speaking, for an attractive property in a location with nice views, pool and reasonable accessibility the average price should be around €500 per week totalling €10.000 gross income in a 20 week season. Said property could be priced up to €900 per week during the peak (middle of august) and down to €350-€400 in April and October, except school holidays.

For our clients on the west coast of Calabria we made a report with rental prices in the area, based on 2008 data.

I will be happy to read your rental experience, opinions and tips on our InCalabria Forum as well as answer any questions.
