And there are certain keywords that come along very often at the Lisbeyond office. Curious to learn more about these important terms in the property management business? Read it all here!

Keyword #1 - Alojamento Local

Keyword #5 - Revenue

The result of our hard work is of course: revenue! This keyword is usually of the most interest to our property owners. Right from the beginning, property owners ask us, ‘how much revenue do you think my property would make’? We provide our answers based on our experience and market data from our specialized software tools AirDNA and Beyond Revenue. After the property is published online and ready to receive guests, we make sure the revenue management is taken care of everyday, to obtain the best occupancy for the best nightly prices.
