Why choose short lets?

The idea of letting your property as a short let or holiday rental might be a new one to you but there can be some great advantages to doing it:

Short lets can be far more lucrative option to standard long term lets, if the occupancy rate is high enough. Buy the right property, at the right price in the right location and a return of often 8-9% per annum for short lets as opposed to the more usual 4-5% is a realistic proposition. 

Why choose short lets in Oxfordshire?

  • The demand for short lets in Oxford is high from business people, visiting academics, insurance companies in need of emergency housing, international conference attendees etc

  • For tenants, renting a separate dwelling is often infinitely more attractive than a hotel room, and mostly offers cheaper rates. 

  • As the owner you will keep much more control over the property than is the case with a long let. You will have access to the property if you want to use it certain times of the year.

  • It is a positive experience for our owners.  A lot of them get a lot of personal satisfaction out of meeting their guests and making their stay a positive experience. 

  • As the properties are cleaned and inspected after every visitor has left, there will be less wear and tear to your property.

A few points to bear in mind when choosing short lets:
