Houszy allows upscale second home owners to find professional butlers willing to stay at their properties while they are for sale, carrying out maintenance work, minor upgradings, and looking after potential buyers during overnight evaluation stays, just in exchange for fifty percent of our finder’s fee or sales commission.
How It Works
SOURCE UPSCALE HOME
We identify an attractive and well-priced upscale vacation home that is for sale, and we establish a connection with its owner.
EQUIP IT WITH A BUTLER
We then appoint a professional butler, who will make the necessary arrangements to get it ready for evaluation stays by potential buyers.
OFFER EVALUATION STAYS
Finally, we reintroduce it in the market with this added feature, allowing a potential buyer to stay in it for as long as needed, before making a decision.
Users Key Benefits
