We often receive the question "How can I get more bookings?" We understand that increasing your rental revenue is an important part of your investment. As your business partner, this is also an important aspect for us! Our motto has always been "if you are successful, we are successful". So how can we both succeed in bringing more guests to your rental home?
With increased competition from new inventory coming into the market, it is more important now than ever to stand out from the crowd by making your property memorable. One thing to keep in mind is that a great majority of our guests are families with kids traveling to theme parks, and Disney is one of the top destinations. Your rental property is in short proximity of these parks, so you are already on the right track of your investment plan! What's next? To attract more families, why not make your rental property kid friendly? Here are a few things that could help:
As you may know, kids influence vacation planning. Theme rooms with the kids' favorite characters would make their dreams come true and they would beg their parents to stay in one of those homes. Local artists can design and paint artwork that will stay on the wall for the years to come. There are simpler ways to create a kids theme room. You may add a large mural, matching comforters and some other decor. Adding a frame around the mural can also give it some depth. These projects are less expensive but can make a positive impact on your property. Whether you own a condo or a large home, a theme room could help you make a statement!
Families with kids do not always go out. Therefore, in-house activities are always a big plus. Here is where game rooms come into play. Air hockey, pool, and Ping-Pong tables would keep the whole family entertained. Even if you don't have a whole room to spare, sometimes adding games to a loft or a den can make a great impact.
There is also the option of adding a wall with a recess and then add TVs for multi-player gaming, which is becoming extremely popular. We also highly suggest adding a couple of arcade machines as they stand out in pictures.
Do you own a condo or townhouse and don't have much space? A games console, such as PlayStation or Xbox can be a great addition. We will add this to the description of your property and advertise it.
Already have a games room? How about adding a theme to it! Kids would have the best of both worlds when you combine their action characters with their vacation playground.
Added bonus: Having kids play in the games room instead of the main part of the house could help you reduce wear and tear of the home! #justsaying
Can't decide on what which theme to create?
Star Wars is here to stay! Disney is creating a Star Wars themed land that will attract fans and get everyone into the galaxy battle hype. Want to keep it less adventurous? You can't go wrong with the classic Mickey, Minnie or the now-trending Frozen theme.
