Last week marked the first day of spring and that can mean so many things. Flowers are going to bloom, days are getting longer, the sun will shine more and in regards to your vacation home it’s spring cleaning time. We had a lot of snow birds this year and they are leaving the end of this month and Easter/Spring break is right around the corner so we will most likely start spring cleans towards the end of April. It is important to complete at least once a year a spring/deep clean. The cleaning staff work hard all year but at this time they will work a little harder to get your rental homes in tip top shape. Please let us know if you’re going to do your own spring clean this year.
Continuing education, while some feel can be tedious, we feel it’s always informative, helpful, and a must.
We always want to be up on the latest vacation rental property information we can, and that benefits you too!
This year we are really luck because we get to go to “The Happiest Place on Earth” to learn what’s new in our industry!
That’s Right! The VRMA western seminar is going to be held at the Disneyland Hotel in early May.
But don’t worry, we won’t be Mickey Mousing-Around, we will be there picking up valuable information!
We will be busy learning all about marketing, housekeeping, difficult customers (yes we have a few every now and then), revitalizing your Vacation Rentals home, what’s new in the industry, and regulations that are being brought into every city on the legality of homes in neighborhoods.
Also the vendor area is fun because they all give away swag which helps us to remember the goods they want us to buy.
Now to be honest, we will most likely take an extra day to visit the park. You would too – wouldn’t you?
For us, it’s been about 10 years since our last visit, and a little R and R after taking in all that education may be just what we’ll need.
