Owner Testimonials

“I have worked with Nate for over a year and one thing that really impresses me is his commitment to his guests and property owners. It is a rarity these days to find someone in this industry so committed to making sure every guest has a great stay and owners are seeing their investment is being taken care of. I appreciate the fact that all units are maintained and customer service is a priority for the team!” – Heather F.

“Anchor down makes the process so simple for buyers and investors. Came to them with a plan and Kristi and Nate acted on it quickly and professionally and made our dreams into reality. First helped us purchase a home, then made the transition so easy to turn the old house into a vacation rental. Told us everything we needed to do in order to get it started and anywhere we lacked they were able to pick up and get the job done in order to get it ready for season. They are great at communicating and professional in every aspect. Literally a one stop shop and I couldn’t have asked for a better team!!!” – Joshua M.

Rental Management FAQ’s

What is your process like to get started?

Complete the “Contact Us” form below and an Agent will be in touch with you as soon as possible. We are happy to discuss any questions you may have about the rental program and if we are a good fit for you. We will then schedule a viewing of the property to assess the house and provide any feedback on improvements or changes needed to assist in hitting your “Property Goals”.

What is the fee for using your management company?

Management fee is 20% of the rental revenue collected from each reservation.

How will I measure performance?

We provide you with a unique owner dashboard so you can review results from your properties on any day and at any time. We send you a monthly report to your email and to the owner portal. Our owner portal allows owners to view and book reservations, pull performance reports, and print monthly statements directly online.

When do I get paid?

Our company operates using accrual accounting. Revenue is reflected on the owner’s account when the revenue is earned rather than when payment from the guest is received. We pay all our owners on or before the 15th of each month for the month that just ended. So, if the guest stays at your property in January, you will get paid on your January statement, which will be released on or around February 10th.

What marketing does Anchor Down do?

Anchor Downs marketing strategy includes a variety of targeted online and offline tactics designed to increase revenue and occupancy.

Custom Dynamic Website & Social Media Retargeting  

Third-Party Partnerships – Advertising your property to more people through Vrbo/HomeAway, Airbnb, Booking.com & More!

Targeted Email Strategy- Regularly engaging with past guests and potential renters.

Robust Content Marketing - Blogs and area guides on our website keep guests planning for their vacation.

Strategic Paid Advertising – Reaching new and existing audiences through paid search and social ads.

What if I have a guest that I want to rent to?

This would be classified as an owner-referral reservation. Our owner portal makes it easy for you to reserve your property for yourself when blocking out for personal use.

You are welcome to send an email to sales@anchordownre.com. Include the guest’s contact information in the email along with the following details: the guest’s first and last name, phone number, email address, arrival and departure dates, and the price for rent you quoted. Please remember that there are additional taxes and fees when quoting your potential guests. This is important to avoid lost bookings due to a difference in quotes.

What happens if I have a balance due at the end of the month?

If expenses exceed revenue generated for the month, you can pay off your balance by Card, Check, or Wire Transfer.

Is there anything I am required to have in my home?

Yes. We strive to make the guest experience the best it can be so we have some minimum standards that are required. We are happy to share a list.

If there is a service or repair done to my property, how do I pay for it?

The invoice can be included on your owner’s statement and deducted from your monthly revenue. Please note that there is a 10% supervisory fee associated with all service orders that Anchor Down pays and includes on your owner’s statement. Please keep in mind that when our service team provides you with a quote, it will not include the supervisory fee unless specifically indicated. Additionally, you can opt to pay the vendor directly; if so, please be sure this is communicated with the local office upon scheduling the work.

Who do I communicate with?

Jodi is your Operations Manager who oversees the operations team and the day to day activities at the property, ensuring it is in accordance with our Anchor Down standards. In addition, Nate manages the Revenue Team that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to manage your rates and maximize revenue.

What is ARDI (Accidental Damage Insurance)?

ARDI is through a third-party insurance company and covers the guest for up to $1,500 of accidental damage to the Property or its contents (such as furniture, fixtures, and appliances). The insurance company determines contribution amount based on age of item, price paid, and life expectancy.

Who pays the credit card fees?

Guests pay the credit card fees associated with the reservation payment.

Who pays the cleaning fees?

Guests are charged the cleaning fees, in addition to the rental rates, when booking a reservation. Owners are only responsible for cleaning costs when they use the property and/or allow others to use the property at no charge.

What fees do guests pay?

When a guest books your property they will pay the rental rate, cleaning fee, sales tax, ARDI (Accidental Damage Insurance) and a credit card processing fee. Additionally, guests are offered optional travel insurance protection through a third-party company.
