Property Management Services
Swede’s Real Estate is the leader in property management on the Bolivar Peninsula, having been in business for over 60 years. Listed below are some of the highlights of our services. You have invested a lot into your home, and our goal is to manage that asset no matter how far away you live. We have owners who are out of state and out of country and we want them to rest assured that their property is well-maintained.
ALWAYS AVAILABLE: Our office is open 7 days a week 9:00 to 5:00 (closed for Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day only) and we operate a 24 hour answering service. Staff is available to respond to emergencies and to check on your property if need be.
LOYAL CUSTOMER BASE: We are most proud of multi-generational customers who come back to Swede’s year after year. We have families who have rented from Swede’s for 20, 30, 40 years, including a family who will be celebrating their 45th consecutive year of renting with Swede’s in 2017. Our database is comprised of over 15,000 customers.
EXPERIENCED OFFICE STAFF: Our office staff is familiar with all homes in our rental program and are dedicated to assisting guests in choosing the vacation home that best suits their needs. We answer all e-mails and inquiries within just hours of receiving them.
PROFESSIONAL CLEANING/MAINTENANCE: We have a loyal group of professional cleaning and maintenance staff, many of whom have worked with us for over 10 years. We assign an individual to your home for cleaning and that person will clean the house every time it is rented. They become familiar with the home and how you like your items arranged in the house. They know when something is not working properly at your home and it is reported right away. We can get almost anything repaired at your home in a timely, and cost-efficient manner, and can arrange for monthly or quarterly services such as air filter changes, lawn mowing, pest control, etc. We can also arrange for seasonal deep cleans and inspection of your home. We additionally employ a cleaning and maintenance supervisor to facilitate all cleaning and maintenance issues smoothly and quickly. Our goal is to ensure that your house is in tip-top shape during peak rental season and watched over throughout the year.
STATE OF THE ART WEBSITE/RENTAL SOFTWARE: Our responsive-design website allows our customers to access our website from any device—cell phone, ipad or computer. Online booking allows customers to book any time from any device. Owners are given access to our owner networks allowing you to access statements, make reservations and write descriptions of your property. Statements are prepared monthly and you have access to records to keep your accounting in perfect order.
MARKETING/ADVERTISING: We stay abreast of marketing and trends in the industry and partner with on-line travel agencies, e.g. Homeaway to increase visibility of your home. We use social media and google analytics to ensure that we stay at the forefront in our industry. Swede’s is an integral part of the Bolivar Peninsula community and are involved in promoting and supporting tourism efforts.
Rest assured—We have you covered!
