SHORT TERM RENTALS

Ideal Purchase

Buy One Bedrooms or Studios

I only buy distressed properties. Open and bright. All completely redone. I remodel kitchen and bath. Add fun design aspects. 

 

Close To Commercial Areas

Walking distance to restaurants and shops are ideal! 

 

Comparables

Use Airbnb to comp out expected rental rates. Don't be fooled by AirBnb. Their site shows the lowest price of the unit. So if the owner prices one night six months out $70. It will show on the map that the unit rents for $70 a night. You must click on the dates you wish to book. Check weekday pricing, weekend pricing, and see how many days they are booking out.
