In our experience, on average, participants in the
Seabim Vacation Portfolio receive 14% more income.
We challenge you to check it out.
How do we calculate?
The offer is subject to our evaluation of the property and whether we determine that it would be a good fit for the Seabim Vacation Portfolio. No boat management.
What, if we miss the target?
If we fall short of the "114% target income" (as described above), we will pay you 20% on the amount below target.
Previous rental income $100,000
114% target income $114,000
Actual future rental income only $100,000
Amount below target income $14,000
We pay compensation of $2,800 to property owner.
No compensation is due, if the rental income was affected by force majeur or extraordinary circumstances (for example disasters, war, civil unrest, market crashes, travel ban, etc.) or other circumstances that have lead to an environment that was different from the environment that existed during the time the previous rental income was generated.
Why are we so confident to generate more rental income for you?
Seabim guests know that they are our highest priority. Each rental party has their personal guest consultant during their entire stay to make sure that all guests love staying in a Seabim property. Whenever guests voice dissatisfaction with anything, we try to remedy it immediately, mostly the same day or within 24 hours. All properties are kept properly maintained at all times. Non-functioning equipment gets repaired or replaced immediately or as soon as possible. Additional help and advice is provided as well. Look at the comments on our social media sites or at the Seabim Guest Reviews.
Our outstanding guest relations lead to an unusual rate of loyal and returning guests. There are Seabim guests that are renting from us for almost 20 years. Whenever, we do not have a property available for these guests in a certain year, so they have to book somewhere else, they mostly contact us shortly after to make sure they can stay with us again the next time. Often, they even become more loyal after these experiences.
In addition to our very successful high-season rentals, we also have many guests throughout the low season. In large parts, this is due to our strong marketing presence in many European countries. In general, U.S. and Canadian vacation travel to Florida is quite limited during the summer months, especially outside of school vacation. For these difficult times, we have guests from European countries like Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The Seabim newsletters go out to over 30,000 people worldwide.
With regards to rental rates, we do not use the "one-size-fits-all" approach. Each rental inquiry is dealt with INDIVIDUALLY - No automated responses or calculations!
Our rental offerings are TAILORED for each inquiry to get the best possible combination of bookings for guests and owners. Booking gaps of under 7 days need to be avoided because the city of Cape Coral does not allow them to be filled.
We also openly favor loyal guests. This is not only in their best interest but also in the best interest of our owners as we already have past experiences with these guests. They are the ones that will be back even in times of lower demand.
These (and more) policies help us keep vacancy rates low the entire year. This has significant impact on the rental income as vacancies are expensive. Together with our "all individual" approach and various additional strategies, annual rental income within the Seabim Vacation Portfolio is maximized.
We are a family business. We are doing this for over 20 years.
