Long Term Property Management

Owning a vacation rental property is an investment in both the short-term and long-term.

Unlock steady income year-round

While our primary focus is providing exceptional short-term rental management, we also offer comprehensive long-term property management services to help you maximize your income during the off-season months.

Different Approach, Same Expertise

Long-term property management requires a different approach from short-term rentals. Our licensed property managers are well-versed in the unique laws and regulations governing long-term tenancies. We implement these regulations meticulously, ensuring your property remains compliant and protected.

Rigorous Tenant Screening

Your peace of mind is our priority. We conduct a rigorous tenant-screening process to find responsible, reliable, and trustworthy long-term tenants. Our thorough checks help secure tenants who will treat your property with care.

Steady Income Throughout Winter

Winter months can be challenging for short-term rentals in some areas. With long-term tenants, you can count on a steady stream of income during the off-season, ensuring your property remains a profitable investment year-round.

Seamless Transition

We make the transition from short to long term (and vice-versa) effortless. Our team conducts property inspection checks a couple of times per year, ensuring your property is well-maintained and addressing any necessary upkeep. This seamless process ensures your property is ready for any guest, whether they're staying for a weekend or an extended period.

Long Term Property Management FAQs

The long-term management fee in Kelowna is typically 10% of the monthly rental income. At Big White, the fee is 15% for long-term rental management off-season. This fee covers a range of services designed to ensure the smooth operation of your property during long-term rentals.
Our long-term management fee includes a comprehensive package of services. This fee covers finding the right tenant for your property, conducting thorough tenant screening, ensuring the property has all necessary amenities and is in good condition, managing the tenant-owner relationship, addressing maintenance and repair issues promptly, and providing ongoing support and assistance throughout the tenancy. Our goal is to maximize your income while ensuring your property is well-maintained and compliant with all relevant regulations.
In British Columbia, a short-term rental (STR) is typically defined as any rental for less than 30 consecutive days. Conversely, long-term rentals (LT) are stays of 30 days or more. The distinction is important as different areas have varying taxation, laws, and authorities governing STRs and LTRs. We take a tailored approach to help our owners navigate this complex landscape and ensure compliance with all regulations.
In Kelowna, the long-term season typically begins in September or October and lasts until April or May. This transition allows property owners to make the most of their investment by capitalizing on the high demand for short-term rentals during the peak tourist season, while also securing steady income throughout the winter months when short-term demand tends to decrease.
