Let Our Team Evaluate Your Property to Discover How Much Yours Could Make!
Welcome and thank you for visiting Reed Real Estate Vacation Rentals. Our goal is to make owning a beach home on the Fort Morgan Peninsula both an enjoyable and profitable experience for you. We are a full service vacation rental marketing and management company with more than 25 years of experience in managing beach vacation rentals.
If you are considering buying a beach house in the area, or already own one and are looking for a management team to help, feel free to send us a quick email or call us for advice on home criteria that will help your rental be more profitable & desirable to guests. We can give you tips on everything from paint colors, to furniture to what to expect when renting your home. We are glad to offer rental income estimates for both homeowners and buyers. We also provide complete real estate services as both a buyer’s or seller’s agent.
We understand that you are entrusting us with care of a very personal and valuable asset. We take that responsibility very seriously. Whether you want to be heavily involved with care and maintenance, or prefer to take a more hands off approach and let us handle it, we are flexible in how we work with you to manage your home. We will do whatever works best for you, and will always openly communicate with you regarding any and all issues that may arise. We are always here to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. This is YOUR home and we are glad to work with you in any way you wish.
Full Service Property Management
We provide complete, top-to-bottom management of the rental process. We manage all marketing campaigns, customer service, procuring of bookings, collecting of payments, all home care required including cleaning, cable and internet, routine maintenance (light bulbs, batteries and air filters), larger repair and maintenance service such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical, appliances, and minor repairs to structure. We even provide lawn care and sand plowing when needed. If larger projects are required, we will work with you to find trusted local service providers to complete your project and will assist throughout.
Renting out your vacation rental home can be a lot more complicated than it seems and there are unforeseen costs to maintaining a home. We work with local vendors, suppliers and tradespeople to try and negotiate the best price for your maintenance and upkeep needs. Since we have a high volume of properties, we have some leverage to negotiate discounted pricing and we pass that savings on to you. We will always try to find the most affordable options for your maintenance needs. You can trust us not to “nickle and dime” you with maintenance and inventory needs.
Pricing & Rate Management
We understand that your vacation home is not just a place for you and your family to come and relax, it is also an investment. We work with you to discover your goals for this investment; do you want to just break even or are you wanting to create a revenue stream? We do extensive area research to make sure that our rental rates are competitive within the market while also allowing for optimum occupancy and overall return year-round, not just in peak season. We want to make sure that you are realizing your financial goals for your beach vacation rental!
Reed Real Estate Extras
Some added perks to listing your property with Reed Real Estate are:
– We offer smart home systems that include wireless entry locks that integrate directly with our reservation system. The system provides a unique entry code for each guest that is only active for the duration of their reservation. This system provides added security as there are no keys to lose or copy, and each time the door is unlocked it is recorded by our software so we can track who entered the home and when. We also offer automatic thermostat systems, with high and low temperature caps, that automatically turn down after the guest departs. These have proven to be a huge cost saver!
– We offer a password protected web based owner portal where you can enter reservations and see real-time calendar updates. Owner reservations can be made, changed, or canceled online 24/7.
-We have nearly 30 years of experience in property management, and are right here by your property so we can be your “eyes and ears” while you are away.
