01. Data-Driven Profitability
By analyzing the market demand and competition in your area, we use our Fernweh Rental Income Calculator to calculate what income is possible for your listing. It may be more than you’re currently charging. Additionally, we use data-driven analytics to keep up with the fast-paced market, creating and maintaining a competitive advantage for your listing.
02. Beyond Hospitality
Your home isn’t a hotel, it’s a home. We make sure guests have access to things they can’t find in most hotels. Including personal high-speed WiFi, a fully stocked kitchen/bathroom, smart TVs with streaming services included, personal washers/dryers, a laptop-friendly workspace, and more. The more we can provide to your guests, the more we can ensure a positive 5-star experience.
03. The Fernweh Creative Touch
Most of our friendly competition will hire out creative companies to provide them with beautiful photography, captivating videos, marketing, and social media. We have nearly a decade of experience in digital media and create all of those important listing elements in-house. Making us your one-stop solution and giving you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Efficiency is key when turning over a home between guests.

What is my ROI?
We’ve seen properties that can earn up to a 3X ROI when switching from a long-term to a short-term rental model. If we don’t beat your existing revenue, we work for free.
How long does it take to get my listing ready?
Depends on how much work needs to be done to make your listing 5-star ready. If a property is fully furnished, clean, has all recommended amenities, and is “photo-ready” then you’re looking at a quick turnaround. If a property is unfurnished, needs additional amenities, and is not “photo-ready" then you’re looking at an extended turnaround. Either way, we'll help you achieve a 5-star look and feel in no time.
Do you screen guests?
When we screen for guests, we follow all guidelines and policies provided by marketing channels we use. We are allowed to ask questions based on those guidelines.
1. What is the purpose of your stay?
2. Why are you interested in this property?
3. Where are you traveling from?
4. What is your past experience with short-term rentals?
How hands on are you with my property?
We always spearhead the setup of each property with the highest level of care. Beyond the initial set-up, we make an effort to visit the property at least once a quarter to make sure everything is up to our 5-star experience standards.
