Just shoot us an email or complete this inquiry form and we will respond promptly!
Why Owners Choose Playlist Properties?
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Playlist Properties. Our owners are local Nashvillians and love to celebrate Music City, USA! Playlist Properties is a property management company in Nashville, TN that was the FIRST 100% locally owned and operated licensed Vacation Rental Management Company.
This increases both search rankings and bookings. Because of our current inventory of Nashville vacation rentals, we are able to take inquiries from one that may be booked and filter them to others, increasing your visibility more than ten times over!
We do this by using our constant awareness of market rates, Nashville events, and comparable properties.
This allows us to keep a close eye on your investments as guests enjoy it as their home away from home.
Our housekeeping staff are our employees, allowing us more direct control over housekeeping standards and security, as opposed to contracting out the cleaning to various companies.
We purchase and keep track of all of the supplies for our properties. We also take care of bookings, monetary deposits/ refunds, welcome packets, personal check-ins, parking passes, laundry, linen inspection, air filter changes, and most importantly, keeping records of collecting and submitting short-term rental taxes to the city, county, and state agencies.
This includes mortgage, HOA dues, cable, electric, parking dues, permitting, insurance, sewer, maintenance, etc. Owners also receive a monthly account statement with your payout documenting all your unit’s reservations, expenses, gains, deposits, refunds, including 1099 at year-end for your taxes.
We Cover the Costs
Most national management chains charge owners $7+ per reservation for guest amenities. Playlist covers that cost by including it in the guest’s cleaning fee.
Most national management chains charge owners a processing fee of 2.5% of higher. Playlist Properties is our own merchant of record and has a processing fee of 2.19%.

We welcome the opportunity to share with you our approach to property management in Nashville and we work closely with our owners to develop a plan that will meet their expectations. Swipe through the panels below to learn more about what makes Playlist: Distinctive, Qualified, and Working for You!
We distribute our listings on more channels than most national management channels, including PlaylistProperties.com and:
- Trip Advisor
- EasyJet Holidays
- 139 Additional International Channels
- 14 HomeAway Partner Sites Internationally
We run a Linen Pool, which means owners simply pay a fair rate to rent the use of our linens for their property. When linens are worn or damaged, owners do not need to be bothered with replacing linens, trying to match the existing sets. We take care of maintaining the linen pool. In addition, with our new laundry facility, our linens are laundered off-site, to OSHA standards.
The Playlist staff is ALWAYS readily available on the other end of the phone, whether a guest has questions about renting your property, or you, as an owner, have questions for us. We are always here. You will never be shuffled from departments, and you will always know who you are speaking to.
We also greet our guests with southern hospitality and have local recommendations for our favorite restaurants and music venues in Nashville. You can't get that with other property management companies since many are not local to the area of their rental properties. We will also keep a close eye on your property, especially during inclement weather.
Playlist Properties reads every review that is posted on every property. This allows us to know exactly which features we should be highlighting in our vacation rental listings, or if there is room for enhancement.
We start with dynamic pricing models, based on seasons and current occupancy. Plus, being seasoned Nashville locals, we have a significant advantage with our fingers on the pulse of what is happening in Music CIty at any given time.
We started back in 2010 managing our own property as a vacation rental, so we truly understand what is important to you, the property owner. We have had the same concerns and questions you might have now. Our firsthand experience as property owners enables us to understand your needs perfectly. Before we became licensed and took on additional properties, we had already established our own repertoire of best practices, policies, and procedures.
First and foremost, when you choose to have someone assist you with your property, it is important to make sure they are operating within the laws and regulations of the Tennessee Real Estate Commission. In Tennessee, a real estate broker or an affiliate broker’s license DOES NOT cover vacation rental management. Playlist is the ONLY local firm with proper licensure in accordance with TREC to manage vacation rental properties, and we are the local experts!
We LOVE Nashville! We truly do love Nashville and all it has to offer our visitors. Our passion and excitement about our city is reflected in our southern hospitality and the in the level of customer service all your guests will receive. We make sure each guest feels they are special and unique. We often check our guests in personally and give them a quick but thorough tutorial on all things Nashville. We make sure they have all of the information they need to make the most of their stay in your property.
Because we are locals, we have scoured through the local options in photography. We have a specific favorite local photographer we use to photograph your property. We are ON-SITE for the photos shoot to ensure your property’s photos are given the time and attention necessary to produce THE BEST photos!
We understand that your time is precious and we’d love to see how we can best maximize your property’s earning potential. With the reach of our marketing, where we list our properties, our extensive repeat guest contact list, and the time we spend target marketing – we can look at your current booked rate and focus on filling in the gaps! We not only track city events, we will get the best rates for you on any given night due to our understanding and utilization of LOCAL market rates.
Are you paying the proper taxes? Do you have the proper required permitting? Do you understand the laws and regulations pertaining to your vacation rental? YOU DON’T NEED TO! Playlist has complete knowledge of all state, county and city requirements and will take care of them as your property management team.
Also enjoy peace of mind knowing that your property is being looked after by locals. When temperatures rapidly drop, we are pro-actively in your property preventing freezing pipes and other possible damage. After heavy rainstorms, we check for leaks or flooding. You can rest assured that we are watching over and protecting your investment.
Our high standards have helped us to build a strong reputation and lasting impression with guests. We work one-on-one with each property owner to ensure that their rental will receive great reviews and repeat guests. All of our properties get staged for professional photography, are well-maintained, ultra-clean, and use our high-quality linens. Each property is inspected on a regular basis to help us keep it in great shape and well-appointed. We will even help with décor and functionality ideas if needed to maximize the appeal on-line and in person!
