Perfection is the Key Part in the Choice of the Home Equipment for the Rented Room

A critical question often overlooked: how to equip your vacation rental to attract a maximum of tenants? Here is perhaps one of the questions that we are asked the least often: “what is the essential equipment to make available to tenants?” And yet, it is a real challenge to seduce and convince a maximum of visitors, a critical point too often neglected. This may even be the primary reason for a very low occupancy rate.

It is true that it is very difficult to know in advance, and with certainty, what will please your future tenants. Everyone with their own desires, we can legitimately think that what will some will not necessarily please others! Does this mean equipping your accommodation offer at random?

  • Would you make such a risky bet to disqualify yourself from the race for tenants?
  • Is there no way to identify a common denominator to the expectations of all vacationers?
  • How to choose priority equipment and leave out superfluous home equipment when you rent your furnished apartment or bed and breakfast?
  • In short, how to equip his vacation rental to attract a maximum of tenants?

This article is there to answer these different questions and help you to address the subject with very concrete answers.

A very common mistake that you must avoid absolutely: confuse equipment and luxury! First of all, we want to draw your attention to the fact that we must not confuse equipment with luxury. Indeed, offering well-equipped accommodation does not mean offering luxurious accommodation.

Equipped Options

We know of luxury accommodation that is poorly equipped (which therefore attracts few tenants) and modest accommodation extremely well equipped (for which the owners have really “thought of everything”, according to the testimonials of their tenants). To convince a maximum of tenants, it is better to think first “equipment” than luxury. One does not prevent the other, of course, provided that the necessary equipment is actually made available to holidaymakers. I simply insist on the fact that, if you want to offer a luxury service, you must not consider that luxury will forget essential equipment missing!

It is therefore important to keep in mind that offering well-equipped accommodation does not mean investing heavily, but rather spending smartly for what makes your tenants comfortable. This is what I propose to explain below in my method of “4 dimensions of the equipment”.

A key asset for your accommodation offer: Master the general expectations of your future tenants in housing.

Before addressing in detail the “4 dimensions of equipment” of your rental (furnished tourism, bed and breakfast, cottage), and give you the tools to better position yourself, it seems important to me identify the general expectations of your tenants for housing. Let’s take a look at the preferences for their habitat and way of life. It would be interesting to focus also on the mores of our foreign friends (because they are also your potential customers, and their lifestyle may differ), but this article might then ask you several hours of reading in the end!
