Property Management Services
Do you stay at your cottage for only 3 or 4 weeks out of the year?
Does your family just go to your cottage for a season, while it sits idle the rest of the time?
If so, please give us a call. You can scratch out the dates you want to enjoy your property, and we’ll book it the rest of the year for you! Freshwater Vacation Rentals has vacation rentals in both the upper peninsula as well as in the mitten. In addition, we hope to branch-out to surrounding states in the near future. We are confident that we can make YOU some money, if you let us. We have Owners’ packets we can send to you, advice we can give, and over 5,000 people in our data base that we accommodate. Do not hesitate to inquire.
Here are some of the services we provide:
-We hire all cleaners, landscapers, contractors
-Take care of taxing statements both for workers, owners and guests, abiding by Michigan law
-Screen tenants before they rent your beautiful home
-Offer damage insurance that guests can purchase
-Guide and advise owners when it comes to local ordinances
-Advertise, book guests, run credit cards, pay for credit card transactions, answer all guest questions
Our services vary, and so does our commission. Our commission range is from 20-45%, depending on what services you request, resulting in 60-80% in your pocket. Not bad when the cabin is just sitting idle. We have noticed that some owners want to be very involved with cleaning, and booking, therefore grabbing us at the lower end of the scale. However, other owners just want to sit back and collect a check, having us take complete care of their property during all seasons. We obviously can accommodate that as well. We are willing to work with you and are very transparent in the process. The bonus is that we require NO START-UP COST. We can provide a checklist of basics that are essential to vacation renting, but there is no upfront fees or monthly costs. If we don’t book it, we don’t get paid. We currently are helping 40 other owners rent out their cabins, lodges, islands, and luxury homes giving tourists a beautiful vacation rental. Currently, our rentals range from 500 sq.ft. to 6,000 sq. ft. properties. Either way, we pride ourselves on personal customer service and making sure each family that rents from us experiences a relaxing and rejuvenating space amongst nature. We love Michigan and know others will too!
