Our most common FAQs

Do you work with property investors?

Yes, absolutely! We’re property investors ourselves and Host & Stay was formed due to the demand of our property investor clients. We have a proven track record of generating double figure percentage returns. If you are a property investor interested in learning more about our services, tell us about your
portfolio and what you’re looking to achieve and we’ll connect you with the right member of our team to discuss things further.

Do you list across multiple websites?

Yes, at Host & Stay Northumberland we list your property across multiple channels so that your property reaches a global audience. These include: Airbnb, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, Booking.com and Expedia. We have a dedicated Channel Management team who keep track of all property bookings using our fully integrated property and channel management
system. This means there are no crossovers between stays booked on different platforms, your prices are continually optimised using our dynamic pricing tool, and you have full visibility on how you property is performing.

How quickly can we go live?

Once we have all of the relevant details required from the owner (including but not limited to: government ID, fully completed draft House Manual, key drop off scheduled, and set-up fee), your listing can go live within a matter of days. If your photography has been scheduled, it can take
up to 72 hours for our editorial photographer to edit and send the final photographs, after which the listing will go live within 48 hours. Every Online Travel Agent has different timelines, and the listing can take around 24-48 hours for approval from TripAdvisor and HomeAway. We’ll keep you informed as we make progress with each, and your property will go live on hostandstay.co.uk/stay as soon as it is ready.

Which of my personal belongings can leave in my property?

We always recommend that items of high monetary or sentimental value be removed from your property for safekeeping and peace of mind. You may leave other personal belongings in the property provided they are stored away and leave sufficient space for guests to unpack their belongings. We encourage our owners
to follow our design and interior guides to ensure they provide guests with a fully functional, high specification property.

What is the minimum number of weeks my property needs to be available to qualify for your services?

We have no minimum requirement for availability and work on a completely flexible basis with our owners. You can use as many days and weeks as you want for your own bookings, and we can even just manage your property whilst your travelling or working away. The more availability we
do have to let your property, the easier it will be for us to improve the ongoing performance of your property through increased reviews and incoming booking momentum.

How long will it take for my listing to reach its peak performance?

A brand new property listings usually take 3-5 guest bookings to begin gathering momentum, and we expect to see annual increases in both nightly rates and occupancy rates. We can help you do this more quickly by following our advocated property design and set-up guides. Due to the seasonal nature
of the holiday let market, this can vary depending on the time of year, season and holiday periods.

What happens to my existing bookings if I am moving from another management company?

With our superior yields and service, we have managed many owners switching from our competitors, so this is a process we are very used to. We will happily manage any existing guest bookings and incoming guest communications. Once you sign up with us, all of your existing and future bookings
will be managed under our Host Northumberland management terms. Tell us about your property here and a member of our team will be in contact to answer any questions you may have.
