Vacation Rental Maintenance Checklist

Having preventive maintenance inspections in place for the rental properties you own or operate is vital not to lose track of your vacation rental business. Fixing minor issues is more cost-effective to major maintenance issues.

    Dig into the details: upkeep, decor and financial records

    The shoulder season is an opportunity to take a critical eye to your vacation rental units and take action where it’s needed. A guest’s first impression can set the tone for their entire visit, so aim to wow them from the moment they walk in the door, if not from the curb.

  • Check for wear and tear

  • Change the decor for the season

  • Work through seasonal cleaning and maintenance tasks

  • Double-check the paperwork

  • Review new feedback and take action as needed

  • Take a fresh look at your presentation: How are you promoting the properties in your portfolio to attract new and repeat bookings? See if there are any new angles you can leverage.

  • Is it time to update your photos or property details?

  • Did any of the property’s recent reviews stand out?

  • Review any paid ads you’ve been running

  • Optimize property info and autoresponders
