21. How to choose the rental company to Partner with

When comparing different potential rental companies, a systematic approach can provide clarity and lead to a well-informed decision. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to evaluate and compare these rental companies:


Online Reviews & Ratings:

  • Websites like TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google My Business often have reviews for rental companies.
  • Consider the average rating, but also read individual reviews to understand the nature of complaints and praises.
  • Remember, a few negative reviews among many positive ones might not be a red flag; but consistent negative feedback on a particular issue could be.


Industry Accreditations & Awards:

  • Check if the company has been recognized by industry bodies or has won any awards.
  • Membership in professional associations such as the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) can also be a positive sign.


Guests Testimonials:

  • Some companies feature client testimonials on their websites. While these will generally be positive, they can provide insights into the company’s strengths.



Length of Operation:

  • Companies that have been in the business longer may have more experience and a more established reputation. However, newer companies might offer fresh and innovative approaches.


Portfolio Examination:

  • Look at other properties they manage. Are they similar to yours in terms of quality and target market?
  • Check the presentation, descriptions, and photos of these properties on their platform.


Social Media Presence:

  • Review their social media profiles (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). See how actively they engage with their audience and the quality of their posts.
  • Also, check for any feedback or reviews on these platforms.


References & Case Studies:

  • Ask the company for references or case studies. A reputable company should be willing to provide contacts of other property owners they work with.
  • When speaking to these references, ask about their satisfaction level, how the company handles challenges, and their overall experience.


Transparency & Communication:

  • Consider how transparent the company is about their services, fees, and contract terms.
  • Also, gauge their responsiveness. How quickly do they answer your inquiries?


Service Offerings:

  • Evaluate the range of services they offer, from marketing to maintenance to tenant screening. Ensure they provide the services that matter most to you.


Local Presence & Knowledge:

  • A company with a strong local presence in Puglia might be better equipped to manage and market your villa compared to a company that doesn’t have local expertise.


Contract Review:

  • When you’re closer to making a decision, review their contract terms carefully. Look for any red flags or unfavorable terms. It’s wise to involve legal counsel in this step.


Gut Feeling & Personal Interaction:

  • Don’t discount your personal feelings. If you feel uneasy or that something is off during your interactions, it might be a sign to proceed with caution.


The goal is to find a rental company that aligns with your needs, maintains a solid reputation, and can be trusted to manage one of your valuable assets. Taking the time to perform thorough due diligence can save you from potential headaches in the future.
