At Seabright Cottage Rentals, we understand that owning a home away from home can have its challenges. As former non-resident homeowners ourselves, we know from first hand experience the importance of having someone nearby who you can trust, to make sure that your property is being cared for to your own exacting standards.
We're pleased to say that we can give you that peace of mind, by offering a standard or customized service that delivers as much or as little as you'd like.
We specialize in managing vacation rental properties. From advertising your property to arranging every aspect of each rental transaction, our job is to generate rental income for you, without all the hassles. For starters, we'll get your property the exposure it deserves. Then we'll personally respond to each and every rental inquiry, secure your rental contracts, manage your availability calendar, and process the payments. At the end of the month you'll receive one balance sheet and one lump sum.
In Nova Scotia, vacation rental properties have become an increasingly popular form of tourist accommodation in recent years. It makes sense that many travelers would rather stay in a "home" than in a hotel, because they can get a much truer sense of what it might actually be like to live in our beautiful part of the world. Moreover, renting a house or cottage can be a much more cost effective option than a hotel, especially when you consider that there are often no applicable sales taxes.
And if you're thinking of purchasing a recreational property or you're simply trying to weigh the advantages and disadvantages, we have an expert on hand for that too. Tim Hoare of Tradewinds Realty Inc. has an intimate knowledge of the tourist rental industry, as well as years of experience in helping people to buy and sell waterfront properties. Tim can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (902) 222-1508. We can help you come up with a reasonable expectation for rental income potential.
Seabright Cottage Rentals can keep an eye on your property when you cannot.
Here in Nova Scotia, extreme weather conditions can occasionally demand extra attention from homeowners. In the late summer or autumn it's not uncommon for us to have at least one post-tropical storm, or even hurricane. And in the winter, heavy snowfall, freezing rain and ice can make for sleepless nights if you're out of town and worried about the state of your property. If you sign up for our home watching program, we can make it a priority to get to your property in the immediate aftermath of a storm, to ensure that the home and grounds remain damage-free.
Each of our customers has different needs, and we can make a visitation plan that best suits you. We generally work on a once a week visitation schedule, where we inspect the exterior and interior of the property and report back to you, the homeowner.
Should we find something that needs to be repaired, we have a long list of contacts if you want us to find someone to fix the problem quickly. We work only with reputable, skilled and honest trades people. We will oversee any work being done and report back to you with digital photographs. And no work will be done until a repair quote has been approved by you.
