* A company that will take the best care of the contents and fabric of your property. Renters who are careless will cause damage that is not covered by rental income. You need to make sure your chosen company is on top of things.

* Every rental requires a personal check-in and out. Many companies take advantage of the keyless coded locks that allow renters to check-in and out. They don't know who's in your home, or if your four-bedroom house is actually hosting 16 guests.

* Highest standards of cleaning. It is expensive and time-consuming to clean a property properly. Property management companies often cut corners in this area, and you'll end up paying the price with worn carpets and other forms of dilapidation.

* Excellent marketing skills. It is now a complex business to market vacation rental properties. It is important that your primary website, where your property will be displayed, ranks highly in search engine results for the most relevant keywords to your area. 

Although a local company may be capable of taking care of your property, they will not generate much income as no one will know they exist.
