10 property management best practices from my European vacation
I made 10 profound observations that are important property management best practices for landlords during my summer 2018 European vacation. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing these best practices.
Let me start off by telling you a little about the trip.
About the trip
My wife, Salima Hirani, is a travel agent with Expedia CruiseShipCenters Terwillegar. Being in the industry, Salima needs to travel to learn about the various products, services and destinations. Of course, I hop along for the ride – lucky me!
This trip was a 19-day European vacation that started with 2 nights in Barcelona, followed by a 10 day cruise on the Azamara Pursuit through the Mediterranean that ended in Athens. From Athens we flew to Santorini for 2 nights and then off to Paris for 3 nights. And a couple of days allowance for travel to and from Europe.
What a trip this was!
In the 19-days, Salima and I travelled through 5 European countries (Spain, France, Monaco, Italy and Greece) and visited 13 cities, towns and villages through Europe:
- Barcelona, Spain
- Saint-Tropez, France
- Monte Carlo, Monaco
- Livorno, Italy
- Pisa, Italy
- Civitavecchia (Rome Port), Italy
- Amalfi, Italy
- Giardini (Siciliy), Italy
- Nafplio, Greece
- Athens, Greece
- Kamari Beach (Santorini), Greece
- Oia (Santorini), Greece
- Paris, France
If I had to pick my 5 favourite places that we visited, it would be Barcelona, Saint-Tropez, Monte Carlo, Amalfi and Santorini.
Property Management Best Practices
I’m an observer. I’ve always been that way. I analyze what I see. I incorporate the good and learn from the bad. And on this trip there were a lot of observations. These observations were confirmations of property management best practices for landlords that I’d like to share with you over the next few weeks.
