2022-09 (September) : Updated Base Price, Customizable Comp Sets, and Faster Set-Ups :

To help you manage your revenue and occupancy better using our recommendations, this month, we made several key changes!🦾

🆕Work efficiently:
Duplicate Date Specific Overrides and choose which days to apply them for

💡Market Adjustments: Our base price suggestions are more relevant for current market

We have made key changes to how we calculate the “recommended base price”. Given the economic uncertainty (we did a webinar recently on this topic), historic performance was not a good indicator of the future prices. The Base Price Help tool now gives more importance to future trends to recommend a relevant base price. We expect this to result in better pricing recommendations.

Head to the Review Prices tab and select ‘Help me choose a base price’ to see the new recommended base price. Once you save the new base price, your calendar will be updated with the new prices.

🆕Customized Comp Set:
Use a customized comp set in Neighborhood data to improve benchmarking📈

The Neighborhood Data (ND) tab within Dynamic Pricing tool lets you compare your performance against the competitors in your area.🗺️

But your properties may be unique🏊, and your neighborhood competitors may not be relevant enough to provide a correct picture of your performance in that market. Say you have a villa in a locality with apart-hotels. In such cases, you might want an option to be able to make your own set of competitors for bench marking.

We had always allowed custom comp set creation in Market Dashboards and you could previously use this in Portfolio Analytics.

With this new update, you can use the comp sets in the ND and all the charts will be updated with comp set data.

Note that the comp set allow you to compare your property's performance with similar ones. This does not impact the comp set we use to calculate prices for your property

🗒️Other Useful Updates
