Sorry I,m a Yorkshire Las and I,m willing to be generous but I need advice on been too generous or been too hard
We have a potential rental for July of 4 weeks, they can only go Wed to Wed ( well they booked flights from Gatwick thinking they looked cheap and Sat Manchester flights were only £30 more !!). We try to do booking Sat to Sat so we get more in and make it easier to plan.
This potential guest wants to pay £600 for a normal period we rent for £950. His flights mean we also loss 2 weeks at an additonal £450 where we have 3 very firm enquiries on.
I,m not sure if we will cover an costs doing a 2 bed apartment for £150 per week , bearing in mind they will be cooking all food in more or less, using the air con all the time and using obviously more than the average rental water and electric. . Can experienced renters let me know if this will cover out costs. Not run the air con yet too look at costs, so can anyone guide me on the rough costs if they decide to keep it on most of the time in 3 rooms.
Yes £600 is nice , but not if it covers costs costs and well get us at least £50 towards our ongoing costs I,m not sure.
The gentleman concerned is coming out to buy a large property in the area and wants to use our apartment as a base. Also they will be frequent visits to the nuddy beach.
Please do not jump down my thread , sensible answers and good solid advice.
We have to make a decision soon, so this thread can be closed tomorrow.
Many many thanks for all your advice from seasoned renters
