We manage over 40 properties

TRUSTED & ENJOYED BY
OVER 100 GUESTS
Since November 2012
Evergreen Property has been serving landlords from around the world for 8 years.
When Barry took over, there were 5 properties under management. The company has since doubled its properties under management year on year and continues to grow at an exceptional pace as landlords move to Evergreen for the exceptional customer service and integrity.
Short-Term Rental Fee Structure
We work on 15% of NET reservation costs.
That means, 15% of reservation costs after the OTA takes their commission.
What we do for our fees and how we work
After the initial viewing, proposal and client instruction we:
- Establish a target market and advise accordingly so the landlord can furnish appropriately. (If a property is furnished, we will optimise listing to fit furnishing).
- Create and optimise listings on the 4 major channels (Booking.com, Airbnb, Holiday Lettings and OwnersDirect).
- All channels are linked to our channel manager and automatically synced to avoid double bookings.
- List on our own website (currently being overhauled to include search facility and booking engine).
- Create a social media profile as “branch” in Evergreen Apartments.
- If needed, we will arrange and pay for professional photography. (if you wish to have access to photos after, you would need to pay).
- Work and liaise with one of Edinburgh’s finest cleaning teams.
- Take bookings (and payments) from guests from around the world.
- Place any future Booking.com commission into a float (without commission to Evergreen) to pay off invoice when it comes from Booking.com.
- Run checks on guests’ credit cards, check profiles and assess the risk of parties or ‘working girls’.
- Liaise with guests from reservation through to departure. 24 hours on call.
- Act as concierge-lite for guests – we will make taxis, restaurant and trip reservations for guests if requested, free of charge.
- Give landlords back-end access to both our channel manager and CRM system for total transparency.
- Manage minor maintenance issues whilst liaising with landlords.
- Pay invoices received from suppliers (cleaning, Booking.com, contractors), deduct from balance, create and send a statement on or around 10th of the month.
- Pay landlord. For itemised statements of stays, landlords can log in to either system.
- Answer emails within 4 hours (8 am – 8 pm)
- We take 15% of the NET reservation cost (after OTA commission).
