SummitCove Owner Services Update

Homeowners in Summit County should be aware that the County has signed on with a private company to begin seeking short-term rental properties not properly registered or paying lodging taxes within the community.  SummitCove managed properties are automatically registered and SummitCove Property Management takes care of the tax payments for these items.  We are committed to providing excellent service for our homeowners, and this is just another way that we make the process easier for our owners!

Increasing demand for your River Run Condo

Does your neighbor seem to get more reservations than you? Are you considering upgrading your rental property?

River Run Village is the most highly demanded area in Keystone Colorado, so if you are a home owner in River Run Village already congratulations. Now when a guest is looking at finding the vacation rental for a ski vacation or coming up for one of the several festivals and concerts they begin the search for there perfect place. Maybe they were told by some friends that they should stay in River Run Village and that is all they know. Maybe they are just looking for a place withing walking distance to the slopes.
We like to take a step back and think like a guest, so we did our homework and we asked our vacation planners what is important to our guests when reserving a property in River Run Village? What is important to me when I want to reserve a property on any vacation I take? Here is a short list of what we have come up with for what a guest would like to have in there rental property.

Guests like to stay in a property that is convenient to the activity they are going to be doing.
Guests like to vacation in a property that is as nice or nicer than their home.
Guests like a place where they can be comfortable.
Guests like a place that is clean.
Guests like a place that is modern.
Guests like a place that looks warm and inviting.

Now when you narrow down the short list and find a place that meets all of these criteria we realize that some additional factors come in to play. These are like the added features you get when you go to buy a car, navigation, heated seats, leather, auto dimming mirrors, stuff you don’t need but you would certainly take them over not getting them if they are the same price. Now take that mentality into your rental property.

Guests like flat screen TV’s.
Guests like comfortable inviting looking beds.
Guests like new furniture.
Guests like nice decor.
Guests like upgraded EVERYTHING.

We have put together a photo slide show of before and after some of our homeowners did a remodel of Expedition Station 8589

SummitCove Property Management is dedicated to working with our home owners in Keystone Resort to meet and exceed your goals as owners, maximizing revenues, increasing repeat rentals, and keeping our properties in first class condition.
