Empty Nesters: how your home can fund your travels

London: With September upon us, we are set to wave goodbye not only to the warm summer days, but also those returning to or starting university, and according to City Relay, your home can help fund your travels.

A leading short let property management company, City Relay aims to take the hassle out of letting your home, allowing the new generation of ‘Empty Nesters’ to pursue new experiences whilst their home is looked after and they earn some extra cash to fund their adventures.

The company has calculated that a four-week vacation for two people to a mid-range European destination could be 67 per cent financed by renting out an average four-bedroom home in Chelsea for around £1980 a week.

Every September, a wave of homeowners finds themselves residing in their family home – sans family, and the best way to get over those back to school blues is to enjoy some time away and let your home fund your next holiday. This year, City Relay reports it has already seen a 30 per cent increase in the amount of people wanting to rent out their homes from September, compared to last year’s figures, with new hosts coming on board in preparation for their children flying the nest.

We have heard of the honeymoon, and more recently the ‘Baby Moon’, but what about an ‘Empty Nest Moon’? Is it not now time that you enjoyed a bit of quality time with your partner or friend, to take the time out of your ever-busy working life and travel without the children?

City Relay wants to provide London’s homeowners with a local, personal and fully managed service when short letting their property enables hosts a greater sense of confidence to short let their home.
Providing a full service from start to finish, City Relay handles the housekeeping and maintenance on a property while it is occupied, and also offers a 24/7 guest support service. All guests are screened and there are ID checks so there is no need to worry about wild parties either.

Your house can really help you to earn some extra cash while you too fly the nest!
