Extending into Cornwall’s south coast, Pass the Keys – the UK’s leading short let management service, are now welcoming property owners in the Falmouth and Truro area.
Pass the Keys has worked with hundreds of property owners across the UK since 2015, offering services to help make managing their properties efficient, convenient, and straightforward – using multiple platforms, which include Airbnb.
With the demand for short term lets in Falmouth at an all-time high, comes an equally high demand for support and services to manage the properties. Pass the Keys are very pleased to announce a partnership with business owner Rosie Bradbury – who is based locally.
Rosie explained to us why she’s so enthusiastic about the short-let industry and why Falmouth is the place to be.
Rosie, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a Director of SBPR, a PR agency based in Cornwall. During 2019 I managed the conversion of a rundown barn into a holiday cottage and welcomed our first guests – quickly realising I have a passion for short let property management.
With my background in PR and marketing (and here’s a bizarre combination, wastewater engineering), I bring the necessary skills (and nose) to this exciting new venture.
What made you choose Falmouth as a Franchise area?
Falmouth is my home, and I grew up only a short drive away – it’s a place I know incredibly well.
It’s a tourist hotspot and has the strongest year-round events programme of any town in Cornwall. Out of the 4 million who visit each year, 49% are motivated to travel by events and festivals – of which there are many. This puts Falmouth at the forefront of event visits.
Falmouth University and the University of Exeter Cornwall Campus also continue to drive a year-round economy in the town.
I’ll also be covering Truro and the villages along the main corridor to Falmouth – all of which are fantastic locations for short-let properties.
Why does Falmouth need a Pass the Keys Franchise?
Demand for short letting has grown exponentially and we’re experiencing a staycation boom – with no signs of it slowing down.
Whilst many hosts have chosen to manage their properties themselves, using platforms such as Airbnb and Booking.com, a year like 2021 could have made for a full-time, demanding experience. The service provided by Pass the Keys allows those owners the chance to step back, whilst retaining full oversight of upcoming bookings and financials via the client portal.
There are other holiday accommodation and management companies out there, but Pass the Keys offers technology that is second to none.
If you have a passion for the short-letting industry and are looking to become your own boss, then why not consider becoming a Pass the Keys Franchise Partner? Operating and managing properties across their local area, our Franchise Partners are supported by the reputation and technology of a national brand, to grow a successful, cutting-edge local business.
