Common Misconceptions about short term Breckenridge Property Management

-“I can’t use it when I want.” Wrong, you can blackout your property for you own use at any time and for how ever long you like. Owners always have first choice to use their own property. Rentals are booked around the owner’s dates, not the other way around.
-“Renters will destroy my property.” Wrong. While accidents will happen from time to time, we make a point to have no less than two inspections done prior to and after each guest rental. This ensures if an accident were to happen, the guest would be held accountable for it and the problem would be remedied without any involvement or expense to the owner. However, most guests leave the property in better condition that they found it and we make it a point to inform each guest of this expectation.
- “My property will be fine without management.” Maybe. Your property should be fine unmanaged. But what happens when it gets broken in to, when the power or gas go out and the pipes freeze, when it floods, when an ice dam causes water to leak through the roof, or when someone needs to be there to address any of these type of emergencies?
