What is a Property Manager?
Buying a second home in an area you enjoy visiting may be a lovely experience. You have a home there to visit year after year, and you might rent out your vacation house to other visitors while you aren't using it. While purchasing a second property might make your life more convenient, you should be aware of the costs, commitment, and risk entailed.
In order to remove the hassle of managing your second home from afar, you can hire a property manager to take care of the daily operations and of the ongoing responsibilities. As a result, Dalima provides a completely in-house management experience. We take care of the hassle - furnishing, repairs, utilities, cleaning, gardening, you name it. You just schedule your time, travel home, and enjoy yourself with your loved ones.

Property Manager responsibilities
You may handle your rental property on your own, but it will be difficult. Being a landlord without assistance might be a never-ending throbbing pain. Thus, hiring a property manager to assist you to achieve your objectives of generating income or keeping your property in good conditions will be the best alternative.
The property manager's duties may include monitoring and organizing maintenance operations and schedules, performing light repairman and housekeeping work, addressing tenant concerns, marketing, showcasing, and leasing empty units, gathering and depositing rent, and interacting with the property owner on a regular basis about the homeowner's status. The property manager serves as the owner's eyes and ears on the property, ensuring that concerns are addressed immediately and that the property itself is competently maintained.
Dalima’s In-house management
A second residence will almost definitely be placed hours distant from your primary home, requiring either long vehicle trips or flight tickets. As a result, it may be difficult to inspect it to confirm that it is still in good condition. You may not know for many days whether a storm ruined your ceiling, someone broke into your home, or criminals ruined your property.
This is why Dalima will handle every aspect of ownership, eliminating you of these hassles and concerns. We charge a maintenance fee varying from €39 to €99, which is established at the moment the property is acquired.
We've seen it all in our 10 years of working in the hospitality industry in over 30 countries. As a result, we recognize the importance of having actual control over the personnel who have an impact on our clients' experiences. It is critical for us to have our own personnel on-site and we coach them in accordance with our beliefs. And to be able to solve any problem quickly and efficiently. That is why we have decided not to outsource.
Dalima takes care of every home that is part of our portfolio. First, we look after every legal and financial aspect involved in homeownership. This includes handling utilities, insurance, and property taxes, creating and maintaining the legal entity that aggregates the co-owners of each home as well as its accounts and legal obligations, and representing the co-owners as required by outside parties, including municipal authorities.
On the other hand, we take care of every detail. From the maintenance, repairs, cleaning, and daily tasks to the additional services you'd like to enjoy during your stay: private chef, unique activities, restaurant concierge, or massages - you name it. Our in-house team will always be accessible at the location to assist you throughout your stay. And even while they're sleeping, you can rely on our 24-hour support team to assist you with whatever you need.
Enjoy full ownership of one of our stunning homes and none of the hassle!
