The Short-Term Rental Landscape
As the hospitality and property sectors continue to merge, we are seeing an increasing demand for the full management services offered through Host & Stay. Fuelled further by our flexibility, ease of use and the incremental returns we deliver for our property owners.
According to a report by letting agent professional body ARLA Propertymark last year, nearly 50,000 properties have been changed from long-term to short-term letting. Its research, which was carried out by Capital Economics, found that a further 10% of landlords were considering offering short-term lets in the future.
Host & Stay is an industry leader, and our service ensures we are the ideal partner for those looking to enhance the performance of their assets professionally and responsibly.
We’re looking for business partners
No matter where you’re located within the UK.
Like us, if you’re passionate about property, have great local knowledge, and are an ambitious like-minded individual entrepreneur, or experience property professional within lettings or estate agencies – then we’d love to hear from you! Our partnership models are a unique relationship between our team and you. Our solution gives you access to the knowledge, support, and infrastructure needed to build a multiple income stream portfolio without having to do all the work yourself. Not everyone has the time or expertise to build a Short-stay lettings property portfolio.
We will help you grow a portfolio of properties across your hometown and beyond, managing meaningful relationships with your own loyal customers. We’ll be with you the whole way. With our experience, teams, and technology. Your passion and local knowledge.
Host & Stay has always been strong in growth. We offer a variety of opportunities and growth in elevating your business and being part of a respected and passionate brand with one of our professional avenues below.
Our Franchise Partnerships are perfect for those individuals that are looking to take the next step in their career and want to open their own short let management company but with the backing of Host & Stay’s brand recognition, established database and network.
Franchisees can find this route highly rewarding in the long run as cold start opportunities give potential franchisees the autonomy to set up the office and grow it how they see fit right from the beginning.
This is where an independent estate agency, letting agent, property management, or a property professional business wants to enhance their growth into a new market segment within the local property marketplace.
Our Host & Stay licence structure allows you to utilise the intellectual property of the brand and its trademark to enhance your business in an exclusive territory as a full-service holiday lettings company whilst retaining the freedom of operating your business independently.
