The landscape of travel is radically changing with people opting for authentic homestays and vacation rentals. The AirBnB craze has rocked the world and India is no exception. The demand has grown exponentially but few in the supply have the time and resources to understand the different online travel agencies, much less optimize for each. This is where the need of a vacation rental management company comes in. Roamhome differentiates itself from the others because of the following characteristics.
Roamhome carefully vets every guest before they stay at your property. Their identification documents are scanned and stored before they reach the property and any discrepancies trigger an immediate cancellation without a refund. Roamhome specifically states which properties are not open to bachelors and enforces this diligently.
The guests who stay in a Roamhome are usually urban families and foreigners looking for a getaway. In an overwhelming majority of cases, they have seen our guests take care of the property. Roamhome is committed to ensuring that the guests who come and stay at your home are bound by the same values as you and appreciate your home for what it is. They implement this using a thorough guest vetting process.
Roamhome charges significantly lower fees than other companies. Before Roamhome existed, our founder tried to put some of his properties up for short term rent. At the time, the market had been cornered by a few medium sized players. The incumbents had poor service, charged obnoxious fees and maintained little concern for the well being of the property. The process was so painful and expensive that the founder decided to take matters into his own hands and started Roamhome. A way to host guests in a hassle free manner without unreasonable fees. This clear vision remains today and is only augmented by each property they take on. This low fees covers access to their experience curation service, a platform that repeatedly pushes the visibility of your home across all major channels, social media marketing, guest management, vendor management, revenue maximization strategies and payout disbursement on a weekly basis.
Broad marketing push
Roamhome is the only company that creates a comprehensive channel map and markets your property individually across each channel. Your property is pushed out across every channel simultaneously which radically increases its visibility. Often customers will bounce around different channels. This broad marketing push increases the retention of the property in their mind and is proven to increase the likelihood of a booking.
Their professional photographers, copywriters and designers are of a high quality and they book slots with them months in advance. At Roamhome, the key differentiating factor for any listing is the content. A vast collection is clicked, a small number is carefully selected, edited and pushed through the various channels. Their copywriters physically visit the properties before writing their piece and the designers are given every resource they need to succeed. This is the Roamhome difference.
Their experience engineering team is the core of removing the hassle from hosting. Whereas most platforms require a host to be present and deal with various tasks, Team Roamhome exists to deal with the homeowner concerns and the tenant’s requests. They are some of the most hardworking people you will ever meet. Going the extra mile is a highly underappreciated service but resonates deeply if you are a guest.
Imagine the feeling of renting a gorgeous villa but being unable to enter your property because the location or keys were not provided to you. This simply does not happen with Roamhome. Their operations team and experience engineers hold your hand every step of the way. If you are a tenant, they are in constant contact until your vacation is over and you are on your way home. If you are a homeowner, they are in constant contact until your weekly payout is received. Once this is accomplished, the cycle begins again.
Experience engineering is exemplary only when it is managed on an end to end basis and Roamhome hits the nail right on the head. Their sales and service team work cohesively and ensure that no guest or homeowner is promised something that will not be delivered. Trust takes a lifetime to build and one moment to throw away. They are cognizant of this and strive hard to gain your trust.
Low vacancy percentage
Their marketing push has a unique feature, it is localized. They show people from Bombay and Pune ads for Goa and Panchgani. They show people from Delhi and Gurgaon ads for himachal. They show people from Bangalore ads for Kerala. Every property is treated as unique, as is the location of the property. Yes, this takes a massive amount of additional effort but it is worth it. Roamhome are able to attract those customers that search into Google at precisely the moment where buyer intention is high. The customers are then redirected to our website to make a choice out of the wide range of properties displayed. Additionally, Roamhome uses a dynamic pricing model that estimates how much of an increase in demand each rupee of lowered price corresponds to. This allows them to drop prices and increase sales while providing a net gain to the homeowner.
Rigorous inspection schedule
Roamhome follows a rigorous inspection and maintenance schedule. They inspect once before check in, inspect and run an inventory check after check out, inspect once again monthly and conduct a maintenance check every year. After much trial and error, they have reached a formula of inspection that works well for the homeowner and the guest. They have their own staff, the staff are dedicated and have clear instructions that help each of their homes reach the quality of a four star hotel. This is the consistency that Roamhome provides, a simply unimpeachable service that will ensure that your holiday is authentic yet high quality.
These are the reasons why guests and homeowners repeatedly choose Roamhome. We have a massive recurring list of customers who have faith in us and a large number of homeowners to whom we have provided a consistent service. We guarantee to deliver on our promises, without any exceptions. Try it out for yourself, let your next vacation home be a Roamhome.
