So how much can you earn through holiday letting your property? That of course will depend on its location and most importantly just how good the sea view is, its size (ie how many people it will sleep) whether it has its own parking or not, and the standard it has been furnished and equipped to.
The higher the quality of furnishing, and the overall presentation, the higher the volume of bookings, and most importantly, repeat bookings. At Porthleven Holidays we pride ourselves on the extremely high number of repeat visitors we have year in, year out.
If a property is performing well, ticking all the boxes with a good sea view, its own parking, and is presented to the highest modern standards, we would confidently expect gross income to be in excess of £12,000 with the larger properties having the potential to earn more than double that. Our commission rate remains highly competitive at 15 per cent.
But just as our owners rely on us to ensure an excellent number of bookings, we rely on our owners to make sure that their properties are always looking good, to keep everyone happy.
