The Pass the Keys® Property Management Business opportunity:

Airbnb revolutionized the short-let market in 2008 which enabled homeowners to let out their properties. Millions of people have adopted the platform already but there remains an extremely large number of potential hosts who cannot use the platform because they either don’t have the time to manage it themselves or they live remotely.

Pass the Keys® provides the solution by offering an end-to-end short-let property management service. Homeowners can let out their property without doing any of the work and can earn up to 50% more by doing so on the short-let market rather than the traditional long-term market.

Pass the Keys® Franchisees offer an end-to-end solution for homeowners who are unable to manage their properties. They manage the entire booking process, providing their hosts with a hassle-free service, dealing with everything from guest communication to cleaning and invoicing.

Pass the Keys® Franchisees take 18-20% of each booking.

With bespoke systems automating a large part of the process, franchisee have time to spend growing the business.
