This company manages the advertising, booking, calendar, cleaning, repairs, etc. on several high end units. The company also manages the key distribution, cleaning, and maintenance for owners that self-manage their units. This allows for growth and revenue from two different avenues. The owner most oversees the managers and maintains relationships with the unit owners. She mostly has to be available for communications with the unit owners. The new owner does not need any industry experience and needs no special licenses or permits besides a basic local business license. The owner has also created her own “system” which makes this a very easy to run and grow and to teach a new owner. She even has a website with all policies, procedures, documents, etc. which enables new employees and the new owner to have easy access to training and resources.
The company has a high focus on customer service, quality maintenance and cleaning and is very responsive to both the unit owners and guests' needs. The company utilizes a one year automatically renewing contract with the unit owners and historically has only lost a unit if it sells to a new owner. It has not been a big effort to finish each year with more “net” units than the year before. A new owner can do many things to increase this and grow this company faster without having to try risky or new ideas or spend a lot of money.
Marketing and Advertising: The company runs online ads periodically and sends focused area soliciting mailer postcards. This is a very effective low cost way to grow the company that has proven to work. They also have advertised with Google Ads in the past. They are also currently updating their website.
Growth Potential: The ads work but there is an opportunity to continue to grow this business by being more present and attending local events, meetings, etc. A new owner can also expand this model by expanding their territory into nearby towns and still manage the business from their current offices.
Employees: The company employs 8 to 12 people depending on the season. They have 3 representatives who book properties, 1 sales manager, 1 operations manager, 1 housekeeping manager, 1 handyman, and 2 to 6 housekeepers depending on the time of year. The owner also hired a replacement for herself last fall who stayed only 6 months. During those 6 months, the owner was training her and was allowing her to handle the majority of her responsibilities. The new manager had left a nearby home owner's association and was offered a similar job again which she took. This was a waste of time and money which also distracted the focus on growth. The business is back to normal and the owner will transition the business and can train a new owner very easily.
Competition: There will always be competition but the company has now established itself as a high end property manager with a top reputation whose services are priced in the middle of the market.
Location: They have 2 locations. One is 365 square feet and is located in town. The cleaning business is located close by in a more commercial area in a 1,2600 square foot building better suited to its needs. There is a commercial washer and dryer along with all their maintenance/cleaning equipment and inventory is there. Both locations will be easy for the new owner to secure a new lease and/or take over the old lease. It is a very popular town for both locals and tourism with great restaurants, skiing, rafting, fishing, hiking, biking, schools, etc.
Other Considerations: They have an accountant and use QuickBooks. The books are detailed and in order. The equipment will be included in the sale but unused inventory will not. The owner is confident in and will help ensure a smooth transition of the business. The owner is very interested in seeing the business prosper in good hands. The hard work is done and the systems are in place. She believes that the business will grow just executing the model. The seller will offer full warranties, indemnifications, and further states there are not any legal or other issues of any kind that they are aware of that are pending. This is a mostly turnkey profitable business. The model is just waiting for a new owner to step into it.
Thank you for your interest in this business. Please email detailed questions to me at email@example.com or call me at 303-905-7607. I will be happy to set up a meeting or phone call with the owner.
