The concept of letting out your home while you travel has become pretty commonplace in the last few years. People have discovered that just locking it up and leaving it empty not only puts your home and its contents at risk but is a waste of potential income.
Extreme commuters who travel back to South Africa regularly, for work or pleasure, are now able to pay for their trip and even have a little spending money left over. On average, a home in London Zones 1 or 2, can earn you roughly £600 a week.
Doing it yourself would be a hassle, but specialist companies have been formed to take care of things for you: they provide clean linen, towels & toiletries, check guests in and out for you, and ensure that everything is in order and has had a full clean before your return. These companies also have employees who are on call 24-hours a day to make sure everything runs smoothly while you’re gone.
A reputable company like UnderTheDoormat will also do background checks on people before they rent your home so you know you have the right kinds of people staying.
Taking on the services of a company will remove any hassle and enable you to enjoy your holiday without worrying about what’s happening back home while you’re gone. Plus, you’ll now have more money to splurge on duty-free goodies!
