30Awesome Vacation Rentals Is All About Relationships

October 11, 2017 by Kerri Parker

Deciding to make your property a vacation rental is deciding to start a new business.

There are dozens and dozens of details that can be easily overlooked, even if you're great at business. Whether you recently purchased a “hot rental investment” or have owned property for years, there are so many things to consider. As with any new business, it's wise to seek guidance from an experienced source.

Enter 30Awesome Vacation Rentals owner Teresa Baum! She's a long-time SoWal local with a resume that reflects her pioneer spirit. She has forged a path for property owners that is unique and profitable.

Do you remember when buildings on Scenic 30A were miles apart? Teresa sure does. There is a distinct difference between folks who have watched our beloved beaches grow to become one of the most coveted destinations in the world, and those that moved here merely to catch a wave. Some are put off by the growth, others have helped manage its direction through the years. Sit awhile with Teresa and you'll learn she's had a humble hand in guiding marketing, development, and business at our local beach towns like Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and Seaside.  

“It’s important that a homeowner trusts that our 30Awesome team understands South Walton, and how to share local insight with guests who rent their property. We want to share what we love about our beach town. Our authentic approach assures guests have the experience of a lifetime,” says Teresa.

Teresa is dedicated to fostering relationships that last, with both owners and guests. Bringing focus to the bottom line is one of her favorite subjects when speaking to a homeowner about their rental property. 30Awesome offers marketing and strategy services that include rental income projections over several years.

“Projecting rental income is part of our strategy process. We use varied marketing tactics to support projections – bringing guests to their property repeatedly,” says Teresa. “What we bring to the table is a solid understanding of how to create a sustainable rental income for their property at a fraction of the fees other rental management companies charge.”

As South Walton bulges with millions of visitors each year, the rental management business has become extremely competitive. The team at 30Awesome doesn’t want all the market share. Their goal is to exceed expectations without over-extending their team.

“It’s clear to us that we only want a small portion of homes to market because we want to nurture our homeowners and guests with personal touches nearly impossible to make if we do not maintain a boutique concept,” says Teresa.   

Beyond booking rental homes, one of the most difficult things for homeowners is finding reliable resources for repairs and maintenance, especially if they live out of the area. 30Awesome has this common peril covered because they partner with trusted contractors. With skillsets in plumbing, air conditioning, painting, etc., 30Awesome makes maintenance a seamless process for homeowners.

“It’s important that our 30Awesome team and the homeowner feel mutually invested in their property. We want to be the right fit for them and vice versa,” says Teresa.
