We also provide storm damage checks, and property checks as needed when homes are not booked.

Pricing

Our introductory is 25% of the TOTAL NIGHTLY BOOKING AMOUNT, Other companies will take 25% of the total amount received. We don’t feel that is fair because then you are coming out of pocket for housekeeping and registration (if applicable). WE PUT MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET!!

We make money when you make money so we make increasing your revenue a full-time job!! we have the team and the time to get this done. There are no hidden fees and no up front costs for you.

We do require a contract that protects all of us, however, if you are unhappy with our services, you can walk away at any time PENALTY FREE!! That is our guarantee and we know you will be happy with our services.

Commonly Asked Questions

Q: Why go with a property management company?
A: There is a lot of work that goes into the day to day operations of your rental to make it make money. We take the headache out of all of that. we treat your home like it’s our home.

Q: Why does Evolve only charge 10%?
A: We will never speak ill of a competitor company, however we have the resources in the local area to respond to your and your guests needs 24 hours/day. We are ‘boots on the ground’ meaning we are local and as such we have the resources to respond to yours and your guests needs immediately.

Check out our stats on AIRDNA.

Q: Is housekeeping included in the management fee?
A: The short answer is no. Our management fee covers our ability to manage your home and all of the different facets of your day to day operations like coordinating contractors, housekeeping, guest relations, advertising, managing inventory, restocking, check in /out checks 24 hour emergency service, etc. The housekeeping fee is paid by your guests so you are not out any money. This covers the staff, cleaning and disinfecting, laundry, inventory management, cleaning supplies (they use all of their own including vacuums, mops, trash bags and paper towels) and reset for next guest.

Q: How do you recover for damages?
A: We weigh each situation individually. Some situations are not as simple as a broken chair or excess garbage left behind. We want to be sure that our guest is leaving with a good experience and a good last impression of their stay. We have adopted the $100 rule. If anything is less than $100 it will be chalked up to the “cost of doing business.” This stained linens and/or towels. If there is damage above that, we will first speak to the guest to find out what happened and how to get it resolved. Our guests must take the $99 insurance policy through VRBO that covers up to $5000 in damage/theft. Airbnb offers AirCover which covers spot to $5000 in damages. We will put claims into the appropriate insurance company. We are adding this insurance to our direct booking site but until it is in effect, a $750 security deposit is collected. If a guest receives a fine we will provide a copy and request it to be paid through the platform with the assistance of the platform.

Q: What do I need to add to my homeowner’s policy?
A: You must let your homeowner’s insurance know that you are doing short term vacation rentals. Some offer a short-term rental rider, others offer balloon policy coverage. Typically the deductible with these policies is $1000. Please consult with your insurance agent for the best protection on your home.

Q: Can we get sued if someone gets hurt?
A: Anyone can attempt to sue for anything however this is seriously mitigated by a number of factors. First, we do a safety inspection according to state rental inspections guidelines. Second, Airbnb and VRBO provide $1,000,000 in liability coverage. Third, our guest contract has a hold harmless/use at your own risk clause in it for everything on your property from fire pits and bunk bed ladders to hot tubs and amenities. Our guests must sign this prior to arrival or they cannot come. Finally, we are working on adding liability coverage through our direct booking site.

If you have any other questions please be sure to ask!!
