How often will my home be occupied?
Our property management services maximise income through high occupancy and optimum pricing. Using various rental platforms like Airbnb, we ensure that each listing is consistently generating income. For those who also live in the home on occasion, our holiday let management system works around your schedule to make sure that your home is always clean and ready for you when required.
What happens if something is damaged during a guest stay?
Frank Porter prides itself in a careful vetting process that ensures guests staying in your home are most likely to take care. Before and after each guest, the home is carefully inspected. In the event of damage, we handle all aspects and correct the situation. Airbnb offers a Host Guarantee that protects hosts worldwide if damage occurs during an Airbnb occupancy. We will also implement our own policies, such as guest deposits to mitigate this risk. (Please get in touch for more details)

Does it matter when I list?
With over 15 million visitors to Dubai in 2017, demand for short-term rental listings is growing quickly. The sooner your home or apartment is listed, the sooner you can generate revenue. An important part of Airbnb success is the ratings guests leave after each visit. Once your property is listed our Airbnb management begins generating quality ratings that increase booking frequency and revenue.
Airbnb is relatively new to Dubai. With its increasing popularity comes growth in traffic and revenue that are immediately beneficial to the home owner. This is an optimal time to use Frank Porter’s Airbnb management services to list and manage your property for short term letting.
Can I list on Airbnb on my own?
Yes. Due to new policies, you can now list your property on your own. It requires applying for a holiday home licence with Dubai Tourism, listing through Airbnb, and maintaining your home and listing. You will need to have a contact person in Dubai if you are not local during bookings, register guest’s passports with Dubai Tourism, and pay monthly fees.
Can tenants list their home or is it only for home owners?
Yes. Tenants can list their home with Airbnb provided they follow all procedures and register a No Objection Certificate with applicable documentation from the homeowner. This states that the homeowner agrees to the subletting of the property through Airbnb. Our property management team ensure that your documentation is appropriate so you can generate income through this lucrative opportunity.
Is Frank Porter licensed?
Yes. We are a fully licensed Holiday Homes operator in Dubai. We follow all recent regulations, according to the DTCM (Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing).
