Staykeepers vs Property Management : What’s the difference?

At a high level, here’s the main difference between a company like Staykeepers and a property management company:

  • Staykeepers specializes in increasing your revenue through technology and short term rental marketing, with supporting guest communication services (vetting, check in/out). These on-the-ground services only happen for reservations generated by Staykeepers.

  • Property management companies (predominantly) focus on long term lets and are here to make your life easier. Managing everything to do with residents, collecting rent, operations and maintenance of your portfolio.

In fact, Staykeepers has a number of clients that are property management companies, hiring Staykeepers to market units and facilitate short term rentals for their clients. Property management companies we work with include Homes for Students, Fresh, Abodus and Unite Students.
