Buying or building a house on Samos has become increasingly popular over the past years.

Low interest rates along with high inflation make investments in real estate an appealing alternative.

Combine this with the relaxed lifestyle and the comparably low costs of both ownership and living on Samos, it is no wonder that the amount of properties owned by persons from abroad has increased a lot recently.

However: Having a beautiful holiday house may be great, but it still costs money in taxes and maintenance.

Wouldn't it be ideal to turn your holiday residence into a business asset that actually *makes* money?

This is no rocket science since the rise of AirBnB and other OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) like booking.com, Expedia and Tripadvisor. More and more home owners rent out part (or all) of their houses to tourists during the season.

The trouble starts when you live abroad and can't take care of the work involved. You will not only have to set up the listings on the travel portals but also communicate with guests, make sure they arrive well, have the house cleaned and the garden maintained, stay around for questions they might have, clean their linen frequently, react quickly should there be a problem that requires fixing... the list doesn't stop here.

This ended the dream of a nice passive extra income for house owners living abroad.

The good news is that there is actually a property management company on Samos to handle this!

Carefree Samos deals with all the aspects of maintaining holiday property for clients abroad, be it for their exclusive personal use or for renting it out.

They have been doing rental management since back in the early 2000s, when there was not even an AirBnB to help with that.

Now, seeing the ever increasing demand,they decided to work on this business full time again.

Their offers include winter maintenance - which means checking on the house in regular intervals, cleaning, heating and airing, and for those who don't want to rent their house,

summer maintenance, which also includes the garden.

House owners who want to enter the holiday rental business will find an impressive list of rental related services. These range from cleaning, house and garden maintenance, guest hotline to handling safety deposits and airport/port pickup.

For the less internet savvy house owners Carefree Samos with their huge expertise in travel related internet business can set up the complete listing, with description, photos and all needed information to make their house appealing to travelers.

And to make the most out of their clients' homes they place their listings not only on AirBnB, but also on booking.com, tripadvisor and a dozen other travel websites, exposing the property to millions of additional travelers.

Their rates are affordable, ensuring that you will actually see a good return from your investment.

Being a company that wants our clients to get the most out of their properties we are happy to recommend this convenient way to have your house on Samos safe, secure and even profitable!
