If you’ve been in vacation rental industry for quite a time, you will know how vacation rental platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, or Homeaway has revolutionized the way we travel and now invest in the previous ten years. With between fifteen and twenty thousand villa postings in Bali alone, the short-term rental market has become extremely competitive. Though vacation homes are good investment, it does need dedicated time and energy to keep the property fully booked. Some people probably just cannot keep up with that—and decided to sell their private villa in Bali. If you plan to sell your villa, here are things to keep in mind to ensure you get the best result.
Take professional, high-quality photos
When potential buyers view high-quality, distinctive photographs, they are considerably more likely to exhibit interest in your private Bali villa. It’s best to hire a professional photographer to take compelling photo that engage potential buyers. The top photographers will gladly talk to you about your brief, offer advise, and, in the end, capture the photos that will attract the ideal buyers to your property. While taking your own images is great for Airbnb as a platform, professional photography is required when selling and can make a significant difference in the value customers perceive and hence the amount they will pay.
Consider putting your furniture up for sale as well
You can sell the current furnishings to the buyer as part of the home transaction if you wish. When the new owner lists their Bali house on Airbnb under their own name, they can use the exact setup and photos you used. While some customers may wish to rearrange items to suit their own tastes, others may embrace the opportunity of saving costs on furniture.
Clean up your villa
Tidy up your private villa Bali. Vacuum the carpets inside and do any small repairs, such as repairing broken hinges and replacing damaged tiles. Try to make it appear as good as it did when you first bought the house. Buyers want a blank slate to visualize how their own items will look in the property, so paint the walls white or another neutral hue. Take some time to clean up the outside of the house as well.

Use reviews from past guests
Great evaluations have the same impact on people that great photographs do on people. And, because over 7% of complaints are related to guests having trouble checking in, receiving insufficient support, or feeling betrayed by the host, you’ll have a lot more positive reviews of your property that are directly relevant to your potential purchasers.
Gather your finest Airbnb reviews, especially ones that mention your home, and include them into your promotion. Reviews can validate the value and potential of a Bali property in the same way that guests validate the value and potential of a villa rental.
Work with local agent
Work with a real estate agent to sell your private house in Bali. They should be not just a real estate agent; but people who specializes in holiday homes and property sales. Your real estate agent should be aware that selling a vacation home differs from selling any other type of property, and should be well-versed in the area.
Sell in the busiest period of the year
Determine the busiest season in the community where your vacation home is located. During the peak season, when buyers are hunting for homes in the region, list the property. Summer is, in most circumstances, the busiest season. Selling during the busy season means you’ll face more competition, but you’ll have a better chance of selling faster and for more money due to the higher buyer-to-seller ratio.

Arrange pricing strategy
Price the home in comparison to similar villa for sale in Bali. Your real estate agent will have information about this. Look for houses that sold with the same amenities as your three-bedroom property with an upgraded kitchen. Look for any tiny variances that make a difference, such as the amount of bathrooms.
Share your contacts of house helpers and more
Be courteous. Share your contact information, as well as any contracts you have for services such as handymen, cleaning, and housekeeping supplies. Many purchasers would appreciate not having to go out of their way to acquire new assistants and being able to leverage your existing relationships with them.
