Bridging The Gap

Is a short term residential winter let right for you?

Buying and renting a holiday home can be a great long-term financial decision and of course one of the key considerations for most owners is that of maximising the return.

Clearly, the lion’s share of the average holiday home’s bookings will come in between Easter and the October half term but come the winter month’s bookings can drop off. Therefore, for many holiday home owners the option of a short term (up to 6 months) winter let can make good financial sense. With this in mind, we are delighted to have teamed up with Cornish Traditional Cottages to offer a great rate on short term residential letting and management to all customers of CTC who feel that they would benefit from such a service.

So what sort of tenant might you expect would be interested in a short term let? Clearly there will be a whole range of scenarios out there but more often than not the average short term tenant is in a period of transition, for example starting a new job, new to the area and wants to take some time to decide where they wish to settle. Or very often the tenant is between house sales – they might have sold their own home and in the process of buying another but need somewhere in the interim.

At Tidmans, we already let and manage a large number of winter lets and we regularly house a wide variety of quality tenants from medical staff and MOD workers to artists and writers looking for some winter inspiration away from home.

Of course we reference each applicant to ensure that they are likely to make a good tenant and our checks include credit, employment and landlord references.

Our fully managed service includes professional detailed inventory’s at the start of each new tenancy, regular inspections to ensure that all is well, online portal access for all landlords allowing you to view tenancy details including live financial statements and above all, great personal service!

So if you think a winter let might make sense for your holiday home we would be delighted to hear from you and will only be too happy to discuss our services in greater detail.
