The average Dublin property owner can earn approx. €3400 per month from Airsorted bookings.
Airsorted, the World’s largest host management service, which arrived in Dublin in late 2016, has revealed that property owners in Dublin could earn approx. €3400 per month when using its service. The “hassle-free” property management venture is a tech-first offering and already manages around 150 properties in Dublin having increased its client base by 39% since January this year, with this figure expected to rise further in the coming months. The company supports homeowners to use their property to generate a flexible extra income, and supports professional landlords to maximise revenue on their property portfolios.
Using extensive technology alongside its property management expertise, Airsorted maximises revenue for its clients through a number of features including automated guest communications, pricing algorithms based on data and supply & demand, as well as having local intel on Dublin’s accommodation market.
Airsorted gives those who own property in Dublin the opportunity to list a vacant property on notable travel websites including Airbnb, Booking.com and HomeAway for a night, a weekend, a few weeks or a few months. Providing a 24-hour hassle-free hosting platform, Airsorted amalgamates and services all bookings to a property on behalf of the owner for a small percentage of the property’s earnings.
The company’s local, 360-degree service makes it easy for property owners to become a host. Airsorted’s Dublin-based team directly handles the management of properties in collaboration with the owner. From creating and marketing listings, providing hotel-quality linen for every guest, ensuring and maintaining the highest standard of cleaning, Airsorted’s 24/7 service is built with impeccable service as its very foundation.
Of those currently listing their properties with Airsorted profiles include:
- Holidaymakers or business travellers who let their home for short periods throughout the year to earn while they’re away
- Retirees who live outside Dublin, and only use their city-centre bolthole from time to time
- Expats who have left Ireland for work or to travel, who don’t want to sell-up and instead choose a hassle-free, secondary income
- Full time landlords who want a higher return from the properties in their portfolios
Airsorted’s arrival to Dublin is expected to shake-up Ireland’s already-booming tourism economy as its offering expands the traditional meaning of tourist accommodation. According to Tourism Ireland’s latest figures, 2017 was a record year for Irish tourism with accommodation from local hosts allowing the city to accommodate more travellers and simultaneously increasing competition in the hospitality market.
Founded by James Jenkins-Yates in 2015, Airsorted has attracted top talent from some of the biggest players in the tech industry such as Uber, Google, TransferWise and Deliveroo.
Airsorted’s Dublin City Manager, Rachael Moore said:
“Home-sharing is a booming industry and one of the key contributors to the ever-growing sharing economy. Although we only arrived in Dublin in late 2016, it’s already one of our best-performing cities with our current portfolio counting close to 150 properties in Dublin City and Greater Dublin. However, we’ve barely scratched the surface when you consider how our flexible, hassle-free service appeals to both professional landlords and those who want to flexibly share their home from time to time.
“Our properties are owned by a really diverse range of people from retirees who might be new to the world of tech, to professional landlords looking for maximum return, to enterprising families heading off on holiday for a few weeks. Irish people are naturally commercially savvy, and this, paired with the skills of our expert, local team has been central to our success in Dublin to date.
“We like to think we’re challenging the perception of tech start-ups – yes we’re problem-solvers and we’re highly analytical but excellent customer service remains at the heart of our culture. We continuously collaborate with our hosts to ensure we are delivering a wonderful experience for all involved. A host’s involvement level in the day-to-day running of their listed property is decided by the host themselves – we can be in touch as much or as little as they like, and our six full-time, Dublin-based team are available 24/7 on our host support line. This commitment is why our hosts trust us to ensure their property is profitable and well-managed.
“We’re committed to making a tangible impact here in Dublin and we’ve started as we mean to go on using local suppliers to deliver housekeeping, laundering and more. Over the coming months, we’re looking forward to sharing more about our journey and contribution in Dublin. We look forward to hearing from locals who are looking to make some extra income on a flexible basis, and those looking for a consistent, manageable solution for their property portfolio.”
The tech start-up recently announced the successful completion of a Series A funding round worth €7 million to fuel both its footprint in Dublin and its global expansion, highlighting the opportunity for Dublin-based property owners. Outside of Dublin, Airsorted’s current roster of cities includes London, Edinburgh, Paris, Brighton, Bristol, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland. By the end of 2019, the company aims to expand into 38 new cities across the world, affirming the growing relevance of sharing economies and Airsorted’s commitment to global dominance in its field.
