Property rentals in the Okanagan can be challenging to navigate. Some of which include:

We encourage any prospective investors to reach out to us to discuss this in more depth.

Duval screens all potential guests to ensure they have verified identification, and a history of positive reviews. We engage personally with all potential guests in advance of a booking to better understand their objectives for their holiday. Some questions we may ask are as follows:

– Numbers in the party?
– Age group (particularly of the Principal Guest)?
– Purpose of the holiday?
– Potential visitors who may become occasional guests

These are all crucial components to ensure a successful and worry free rental.

Throughout our guests stay we maintain constant and effective communication as well as offer a mid stay check in and clean. Lastly, at the end of each turnover we complete a comprehensive post occupancy report that is instantly uploaded to your personal owners portal.

For long-term tenant screening, additional measures are taken such as income verification and background checks.

Managing and marketing a short term vacation rental takes a great deal of time and effort. Securing Duval Management as your partner to handle these challenges minimises your time and involvement (i.e. no more late night calls from guests) and maximises your income return.

It’s important for our investors to understand our fee structure which is transparent and results orientated. Duval is competitive about all our costs and provides detailed financial statements with breakdowns of any additional costs to investors to ensure complete transparency.
