Explaining London property management service fees for homeowners

Renting your property short term to business travellers and tourists has much to recommend it – it’s flexible and far more lucrative than tying up your property in longer lets.  The City Keys offer London property management services which not only look after your cherished home but take care of all the leg work associated with renting it out.  We want to protect one of your most important assets and offer an amazing experience to your guests so you can maximise your rental income.

 

What does The City Keys property management service involve?

The City Keys offer a comprehensive online booking service supported by a physical presence at your property to welcome your guests in person.   Both online and personal support is available to your guests during their stay followed by the organisation of housekeeping services after they have left.  We also cover routine maintenance in your home.

 

Online booking service

The City Keys will advertise and manage your property, organising the pricing for different periods and answering queries from interested guests plus arranging their bookings.  The City Keys service includes:-

 

  • Premium photographic images of your property to promote it online with enticing professional descriptions
  • Exposure across multiple channels and booking sites including Airbnb & booking.com
  • Current and up to date pricing which will adjust in line with market conditions
  • Ready online responses to answer queries and coordinate bookings
  • Payment processing
  • Online support for guests during their stay

 

The City Keys – the personal touch

The City Keys is on hand to greet each guest on arrival, unlike London property management services who operate on a key safe basis located at the property.  Greeting guests personally allows us to verify the identity of the guests and to welcome them and show them around your home.  It’s a quick and simple way to resolve any immediate queries or niggles and you can feel reassured that we have met the people who will be staying in your property.

Hotel quality housekeeping will come into your home after each booking and clean it to a five-star standard leaving freshly laundered linen and towels ready for your new guests.

 

What are the charges?

The City Keys premium management service is available at a rate of 15% per booking across the board or a guaranteed rent scheme which will ensure that you will receive your rent every month no matter what.  This is pretty standard across Airbnb property management fees but The City Keys offers you so much more for your money than other comparable London property management services. The level of personal service is a standout feature and this is something many of our competitors do not feature even though they will charge the same service fee rate or higher.

We will rent your property from you and take all the strain of short term rentals from the point of enquiry through to your guests’ departure.  We offer you a guaranteed monthly rent income without any hassle and no extra fees or commission.

 

At The City Keys, you are a customer too

At The City Keys, we never forget that you, the property owner, are also our customer.  You want to feel reassured that your cherished home is in safe hands and being cared for to a high standard.  Our personal service ensures we take as much care of your home as we do of your guests with personal inspections and a call out service.
