Short Term Lets

Making your home available for Short Term and Edinburgh Festival Lets can be an excellent way to make extra income.

More and more, people are finding that for a number of reasons, their property is empty from time to time. If your work involves frequent travel taking you away for periods of time, your property could be earning you money while you’re not there. Or you may own a second home that you visit for extended periods; you may be in the process of considering a move or a new job and are as yet, uncertain as to your plans for your property.

In all of these cases, it is well worth making your property available for a Short Let, to take advantage of the increased rental yields over those of long lets.

Edinburgh Festival Lets

One of the most lucrative Short Let opportunities for Edinburgh property owners is The Edinburgh Festival – for just short of 4 weeks every August, the population of the City swells with tourists and performers, all of whom need accommodation, some for the full month; others for a few days at a time.

It can be extremely time consuming to manage Short Lets; attracting high calibre occupants, preparing the property for rental, ensuring all paperwork is in order. Using an agent to manage your property for you will ensure that all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed.
