Property Owner = Tour Guide

As a property owner you have two jobs. Firstly you must generate interest in your rental property and secondly, you must generate interest in the area where your property is located. May of you, however, seem to fail to accomplish the second step and therefore, have a difficult time finding clients.  

If you are one of these owners and are having a difficult time finding clients, then it is time to transform your listing.

Here are a few simple tips that can help you get people excited about your property and its location:
  1. In your listing you can include your favorite attractions in the area. Bear in mind, however, that not everyone will share your interests. It would be a good idea to use the internet to learn more about different attractions available in your area.  Sites like Trip Advisor will help you find different attractions to put with your listing. 
  2. You should also include the different restaurants in the area. Part of the fun of traveling is eating great food.  You can list fine dining establishments, as well as casual, but make sure to include different cuisines and what type of food they can expect when they visit your rental. Don’t forget to include family friendly options as well.
  3. Finally make sure to include lots of pictures in your listing. Don’t just tell people what your area has to offer, show them. People are visual, and using pictures generates emotions. You want your potential clients to see the pictures and imagine themselves there.  To do this, you can snap your own pictures of area hotspots or use public domain images from the internet.
Following these ideas and coming up with your own will help you grab the interest of potential clients as they often want complete vacations. By providing them with the details of the area, you will give them exactly what they are looking for.  Thus, take your time to research the area, and then provide them with everything they need to make an informed decision about their accommodations.
