There is a growing number of people buying and spending time on Lake Como! The reasons are obvious, you only need to visit the Lake once to be enraptured and captivated!
Buying can be a simple exercise provided you use the right company. All the usual rules apply when buying but can be concentrated to that old school issue: “Do your homework”.
Also many people want to rent out their new holiday home to help pay the mortgage or loan. There are many properties to rent on the lake, which just goes to show how popular it is! The lakeside villas are expensive but command excellent weekly rentals, however the hills around Menaggio, Varenna, Argegno etc have a wide and varied selection of houses and apartments that can command unbelievable views and are a walk or short drive from the local town or village.
There are some considerations when renting however and the following are pointers to appointing an agent to look after your home and business!
This subject is more involved than you might think, there is the absolutely vital cleaning, management and emergency call out to be considered. Living hundreds of miles away is not easy and using local friends, the lady next door or even family may seem like a good idea until something goes wrong or they go on holiday etc.
Then there is marketing, booking, payments, enquiries, telephone calls, payments, professional photography, reviews, damage deposits, language variants, visas and more. Discovery Holiday Homes have a good section of the particular points to address on their website.
The industry has changed noticeably these days and many owners also want to market their own properties to friends and family without pushing them to the listing sites. Any good marketing company will supply owners with their own web sites. This means they can Facebook the site, Tweet it or simply add the links to their emails. These sites can synchronize with an agents booking systems and then there are no double bookings and payments are made easily.
Lakecomohomes.com (A Discovery brand site) does just this. Owners websites such as villatorno.com are an ideal opportunity for the owner to establish more interest!
