Using your property when you want and then renting it out when you’re not sounds like the perfect plan right? And for most property owners, that alone is enough for them to make their property a short-term vacation rental. But here’s some more food for thought…
Turning your property into a short-term vacation rental can not only be a lucrative opportunity, but a wise choice for the preservation of your property as well. The clientele of short-term tenants as opposed to long-term tends to be a safer bet. Most vacationers and short-term renters are home owners themselves, and they are more inclined to respect the properties they stay in. With long-term stays, properties will start to show typical patterns of use that occurs when you have the same individual living in the same area. These patterns never have time to take place with short-term tenants. Also, FVH has a professional cleaning staff that will keep the property in pristine condition and negate the ‘wear-and-tear’ that occurs with long-term renters.
You do need to consider the initial investment of properly furnishing your home for rental, but depending on your property’s features and location, you should cover that investment within the first year. The likelihood of making a higher percentage return on short-term rentals as opposed to long-term, coupled with the ability to use your home for your own enjoyment makes renting your property short-term the perfect choice for many home owners.
