Tallinn short term rental

The questions you should ask your (short term rental) property manager

1.Does your property manager offer the full-service property management?

This is an important question because there are a lot of services to consider:

  • Key delivery to the client which can have several options; meet and greet, self-check-in option, transfer from the airport and key delivery
  • Cleaning service (inside or outside company, checklist and quality control)
  • Property inspection and maintenance
  • Advertising and which channels your manager is using to promote your property
  • How many employees there are and is there 24/7 emergency support for the clients?
  • Is there any working system set up to discover high noise levels or water damage or smoke and fire hazards?
  • How are towels and linen washed and who has to provide them? Can the linen and towels be rented?
  • What languages do they speak and are those the same languages used by the biggest client groups you would expect in the area?
  • Does your property manager offer any unique services that might differentiate your property from the rest?

 

2. Property management fee and the terms of the payment?

Ask how many properties the company manages and how many properties they manage so you can make a rough estimate if they have a sustainable business.

3. Look into the company history: where are they registered for how long have they operated do they pay their taxes, read client reviews

 

4. Terms of the contract and the most important cancellation costs?

Because short term apartment rental clients tend to book their holidays well in advance beware of property managers who offer too soft cancellation terms with very short notices for your property management contract.This might mean that they can not take advance bookings and you will be loosing out on many potential clients.

 

5. What happens if there are damages to the property and up until which amount are your managers responsible in case the damages are bigger than the deposit provided by the client ?

 

Best Apartments is a professional property management company which currently manages multitude of short term rental properties in Estonia.

Tallinn Christmas Market

Tallinn Christmas Market 2018/2019

“Tallinn Christmas Market (EstonianTallinna Jõuluturg) is a Christmas market held every year in TallinnEstonia. The modern Christmas market was founded in 1997[1] and it is open from the last week of November to the first week of January the following year. Founded by Paul Oberschneider, the market brings tourists from all over the world to Tallinn[2]. This is due to the Julian calendar according to which, the Christmas Day of the Russian Orthodox Church is on 7 January.[3]

This is traditionally held on the old Town Hall Square. At the heart of trading is the most important Christmas tree in Estonia,[4]surrounded by Christmas cabins/stands that sells handcrafts, hot wine and souvenirs[5] to about 200,000 visitors every year.” – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tallinn_Christmas_Market

Tallinn Christmas Market

Following tradition, the Tallinn Christmas Market will open its stage and sales kiosks this year in order to make it possible for us to enjoy the Christmas spirited fairy tale land as long as possible. In the Town Hall Square, there is already erected a fluffy Christmas tree, the symbol of Christmas, which for the first time in the world was erected right here in 1441. The Tallinn Christmas Market delights everyone with its coziness, historical location, half a century old buildings and long traditions. In recent years, the Tallinn Christmas Market has become increasingly visible in the foreign media; it has a number of times been elected as one of the best in the tens of thousands of Christmas markets. ….. read more from http://christmasmarket.ee/en/

Best Apartments – Jahu reviews on AirBnB

Very good hospitality, the apartment was comfortable and as described in the ad. Good location just a few min. walk to the old town, nice and quiet neighborhood. Would recommend especially for a family stay.

 

This is a really clean, spacious and comfortable flat, it was a real pleasure to stay here. The flat is very well positioned for the old town and all the main attractions of the city. Annika was hugely helpful in organising everything.

Communication tips for an apartment rental company (20 years of experience)

The communication layer depends a little bit on the size of the company and is very important.

1 Family business size where you manage 5-10 apartments and work together with your spouse/partner/friend etc. If you discuss all the matters that happened during the day in the evening most likely all are in the loop so no need to worry.

2 Any operation which involves more than 2 workers and 10 apartments. You have to ensure that all have the information and whenever another shift comes to work they have all the information concerning promises given to clients, and issues in the apartments which come through the cleaning personnel and client information. The ideal situation is when both client information and cleaning feedback from the cleaning checklists comes to one place and can be reacted upon swiftly.

The must haves:

Cleaners check-lists in real time and with multimedia

Central communication platform which brings together all the information from different channels in one place.

Communication with property owners. If you manage properties for owners you have to keep them in the loop both about the sales and what happens within the apartment (things that need fixing or upgrade etc.)

Public relations within your community and neighbors (be friendly and react swiftly to misbehaving clients who do not respect silent hours in the evening) this is important both for your business and the image of the apartment rental industry globally.

Quality control communication layer. Congregate feedback from client feedback about cleaning and appliances. You have to have a system to check the cleaning quality in real time and give instant feedback to the cleaning personnel before the client arrives, this will ensure high satisfaction rate both with your clients and your cleaning people and you will have a mechanism to filter out the “bad apples”. The most useful feedback for the cleaning is straight after the cleaner has finished where he/she can see the areas which need to be improved. Be friendly, do not attack the person explain then improve then forget and go forward.

 

THE BEST AREA TO STAY IN TALLINN, ESTONIA

The best area to stay in Tallinn, Estonia

That is a quite popular search term in Google so I decided to give an answer and in order to do so you need to answer those questions:

1.Are you just visiting Tallinn for a short period or you are moving to Tallinn?

2.Are you traveling alone or with family and kids?

3.Do you need to use a car while in Tallinn or prefer to walk and do not plan to go to long trips in the surrounding area?

 

If you are coming for a short trip and do not plan to use a car then Tallinn Old Town and Tallinn City center areas are perfect for you as all the sightseeing spots are nearby and for the ones that are a bit further you can use the Hop on- Hop off buses.

In Tallinn Old Town be prepared for:

  • Uneven street surfaces as cobbled streets and narrow passages
  • Most buildings will not have an elevator the ones that have might be old and narrow one which will be adventure to ride 
  • On lower floors, there might be occasional smell from the pipes as they are quite old and expensive to change
  • Apartments on some streets might get bit more noise during the weekends due to the fact that nightclubs and bars are located in the Old Town
  • Parking spots are rare and very expensive

 

In the Tallinn City Center you can expect:

  • Modern new buildings and apartments
  • Elevators and no smell from pipes
  • Bit longer walks to the Old Town sightseeing spots
  • You can even find a parking spot in a garage
  • More family friendly situations (fewer bars, elevators, better infrastructure)

Best Apartments PLC is the biggest apartment rental agency in Tallinn and we have a suitable apartment for everyone www.bestapartments.ee/tallinn/

If you plan to move to Tallinn for a longer period there are a lot more areas to choose from and you will have to answer another set of questions: Apartment or house? Budget ? Distance from the city center? Need parking? New or old building?
