Owning a rental can be tricky, it can be difficult to find the right furnishing and it can be even harder to make sure that the property you have in place is going to make you money. Having higher quality and higher priced items and services in your vacation rental can help you make more money and get more customers.
Why high quality products and services are the most profitable
- Builds trust
- Better reviews
- Fewer complaints
- Aesthetically pleasing
The first benefit to high quality products is that they are going to help you build trust with your customers. Each time a customer comes to your rental, they are going to know that the items that are there for them to use are high quality and are going to do what they need to do. It also helps to encourage better reviews and recommendations based on the quality of the stay. You should always strive to clean your rental regularly and to provide clean and new items when possible.
Better amenities can also help you get fewer complaints. You are less likely to get people complaining about the quality of your rental when things are of a higher quality and when the space has been cleaned thoroughly between renters and during off-seasons. The last benefit is that the more expensive items in your rental are going to look better. Quality towels for example are going to feel better, look better, and are also going to last better than cheaper alternatives.
💡 Good products must have a strong value proposition and solve a real problem, be easily understood by users, perform their tasks as easily and efficiently as possible, and improve and become more difficult to part with as they are used.
Are expensive products always the best quality
When it comes down to it, a higher price is not always the best option. Higher priced items are likely to be better quality for a few reasons. For starters, these items are often made with better materials, they are often made to last, and they are often made to look better and to last longer. With things like cleaners, the more expensive the cleaner, the higher quality the ingredients often are and the better they may be able to tackle hard messes.
💡 Companies charge a greater price for a product in the hopes that buyers would believe it is superior to others on the market.
Quality over quantity
It is always best to find items that are of better quality rather than trying to get a lot of items. If you have a few staple items that are better quality, you are going to be making a much better investment than if you perhaps buy a large number of items that are lesser cost. A great example would be a pair of shoes. If you buy a pair of shoes that are better quality they are going to last longer, wear better and be better overall than they would be if you were to buy ten pairs of lesser quality shoes.
⭐ A common saying that applies to this is “quality over quantity.” The phrase means that having a few high-quality (fill in the blank)s is preferable to having a lot of cheap or less valuable versions.
How to maintain high quality
The best way to maintain quality is to take the time to listen to what your customers are saying. If they are complaining about one thing or other, try to upgrade it for better quality options. You should also take the time to build a kit of essential products. Things like shampoo, towels, toothpaste, dishes if you are providing them and more are all going to be important.
Taking the time to offer the best is a must, if you cannot afford to replace all the items that are in your vacation home at once, try replacing them gradually. You should also be taking the time to replace items when they look dirty or worn and make sure you clean your property between renters.
Test products and have stocks ready
You also need to make sure you are testing the items that you are providing to your clients. Taking the time to test items to make sure they are high quality and that you are happy with them can help you to ensure your customers will also be happy with them. You should make sure that you also have extras on hand.
If you are providing things like shampoo or laundry detergent, make sure you have some on hand to help refill and replace when your tenants have left so that you can make sure your future clients have what they need when they come. Prepping a rental can be hard, taking the time to find the best of the best is going to ensure that your customers are happy with their stay and that they keep coming back and refer your space to other vacationers.
