Do I need an agency?


In our eyes there are three ways that you can run your holiday cottage business. You can:

Do it yourself

Pro’s: Lower commission charges, great if you want total control
Con’s: Time consuming; online channels alone will not give you full marketing reach and you would be unlikely to maximise occupancy; you will need to be always available for your guests

Use a national agency

Pro’s: May have slightly wider own brand marketing reach
Con’s: You will be a small cog in their machine; less control; lack of local knowledge

Find a expert local partner like Short Let Space

Pro’s: We make full use of all online marketing channels and most advanced pricing technology; Strong local brand; in depth local knowledge; Personal and bespoke service; Our professional and experience team will get to know you and your property.
Con's: We don't think you will find one

What type of holiday home owner are you?

As part of our early conversation we like to get to know your reasons for holiday letting. Many of our owners fall into one of the following categories:

Holiday home owner: You have a holiday home that you’d lie to generate some income from when you are not using it, and to have it well looked after.

Your property is adjacent to your own home: You have an annexe or property near or next to your own home, and prefer the idea of short term rentals rather than having a long term tenant.

Maximum Yield: You are exploring all avenues to achieve maximum yield from your rental property

Empty property which you want to see being used and looked after: Revenue is useful but you don’t want to put your property into a long term residential let, but want to make sure it is looked after.

Frequent traveller: You are away from you home for many months of the year and have set it up in a way that allows you to rent it out when you are away.

Tired of residential lettings: You have rented your property out as a residential letting for long term periods, but have grown tired of the property being poorly looked after by tenants.

Whichever owner you are, you can trust we understand your pain points and have a service which will deliver a solution. So call 01993 222 200 or send us a message to arrange an in-person or virtual online appointment and see how we can deliver for you.

What do our owners say?

We have worked with the Company for some years and the Short Let Space Team are professional, efficient and effective, so we have every confidence that they will take the best care of our property and of our guests.

Short Let Space have looked after my cottage in the Cotswolds for 3 years now and I'm really pleased with Mandie and the team. We live abroad and rely on this agent to look after our cottage.

I partnered with Short Let space after leaving a national agent. I really value the bespoke and personal service of the team. Whoever I speak with knows my property and can help me without being passed onto ‘other departments’.
