A London estate agent has launched an Airbnb property management service to help hosts.
Portico has announced the launch of Portico Host, an Airbnb property management service that handles bookings, 24/7 check-ins, guest communication, vetting and laundry.
Portico Host is run by a team of experienced account managers that take care of many aspects of the Airbnb property management service for hosts.
These account managers ensure that guests have a fantastic stay, provide hotel-standard linen, reply to all queries and questions, and allow for 24/7 check-ins.
The team also ensures that the host receives the maximum potential income by using an intelligent price management strategy that adjusts price based on competitive trends, seasons and special events.
The Airbnb property management service enables hosts to provide high quality accommodation and stick to rules surrounding short-term lets.
We remind all hosts who rent out properties on Airbnb to also consider how they protect their assets from damage. Remember that if you let a home that you do not live in, you must have specialist Landlord Insurance in place to cover against perils that can arise through letting property.

Robert Nichols, the Managing Director of Portico, comments on the firm’s Airbnb property management service: “If you have a vacant property, you’re a landlord and find yourself with a gap between tenancies, or you’re away a lot and your home is often unoccupied, listing your property on Airbnb can be a fantastic money maker. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the time or the know-how to make it successful.
“That’s why we’ve launched Portico Host – a premium management service that provides a range of host services such as cleaning, 24-hour check-in, laundry, guest communication and vetting, as well as ensuring the property generates the maximum possible rent.”
If you do decide to go down the Airbnb route, remember that you are still responsible for protecting those in your property, and your finances against damage!
