Why use an airbnb management company?
Increased Return on Investment (ROI)
Maximising income on your short-term rental requires knowledge and skill. Choosing a management company can increase your return by as much as 75% compared with trying to do it yourself.
Peace of Mind
You want that great feeling that peace of mind brings, knowing that your property is being looked after. You also want the assurance that its always clean, tidy and ready for the next guests.
You want your guests to have the best possible experience and to be happy with their stay. Happy guests result in more five-star reviews and an increased occupancy rate for your property.
It’s all about making your property management easier. When you have a question or want to make changes to your listing, speaking to just one person makes for a much simpler and stress-free experience.

I used Firsthand to manage my property whilst overseas and was extremely impressed with their professionalism and service. They handled all guest arrivals, linen and even picked up my personal items to put into storage while I was gone. Highly recommend Mitchell and his team

The Firsthand team are great! They managed our property for over 5 months. Handled everything and were always available to talk. If you or the client had a problem they were always willing to solve it. I highly recommend using them if you are looking for some to manage your property either long or short term. They go well above the call of duty and are extremely friendly.
