Your cottage is your pride and joy.
The place where you’ve invested time, money and a lot of love.
Now you are thinking of renting it out, and you want it to stand out from the crowd but aren’t sure where to start.
It’s natural to feel concerned about how your guests will take care of it; to be a little uncertain about how to prepare for your first rentals, and worried whether it’s the right thing to do.
We understand that because we’ve been in your shoes too and here are 7 reasons why we’re the best option for managing your rental.
Let me tell you a little more about us and how we help our owners feel confident that our screening, marketing and rental management is some of the most professional in Ontario.
Free Advisory Service
We offer a single free inspection and advisory visit. Naturally, we would hope that this would result in CLRM being selected as the agency to represent your cottage, however if you decide we are not right for you, that’s fine too.
The account manager for your area will arrange to visit your cottage, discuss the range of rental options available to you, and produce a written report recommending improvements if necessary, and proposing a rental and marketing strategy. After registration with us, we can offer further advice and assistance with your set-up and preparation.
If you are not ready to register, we can offer a reasonably priced consultancy service, the cost of which may be recovered if you subsequently become a CLRM registered owner.
You benefit through our vigorous marketing and promotion programme. Your cottage will be listed primarily on CLRM.ca – our site that receives an average of 2000 visitors per day in the peak booking season. We will also list it on a range of third party sites that may include the following:
- Canada Stays
- Home Away
- Cotttages in Canada
- Trip Advisor
On registering with us you will receive a link to our Knowledge Base, where you’ll find a range of downloadable resources, document and spreadsheet templates to help prepare you and your cottage for rental. We want your rental business to be a huge success so we are constantly adding new material to help towards this goal.
Private Facebook Group
Owners listing with us have access to our private Facebook Group where you can network with others, ask questions and share experiences.
This is where you will find all your questions answered – we hope! If there are any here we haven’t covered, either email or call, and we’ll find an answer for you – then add it to the list.
