Would Your Home Make a Good Vacation Rental?

Published Date Author: , January 31st, 2014

vacation rentalsWith the advent of home rental sites on the Internet, including airbnb.com, vrbo.com, vacationhomerentals.com and others, turning your home into a money-making vehicle is literally a breeze. But before you get too excited and start counting your take, it’s wise to size up your property and determine whether it’s a good candidate for the job.

It’s a no-brainer really. Think about what you’d be seeking in a vacation rental. A good location, close to popular attractions. An ocean, bay, skyline or mountain view would be a plus, but at a minimum the property must be in a place where people want to go. It’s got to be super-clean, up-to-date, modern and fully equipped with all of the basics and some special goodies to give that vacation feel – a hot tub perhaps or big soaking tub or best of all, a swimming pool.

No one thinks dreary in the same sentence as vacation, so bright, stylish furnishings will be appreciated (and look great in those all-important photos). Good quality, scrubbed clean appliances (an espresso machine would be nice), fluffy towels and uncharred fresh pots, dishes and glasses are a must. Your guests will be bringing their devices, so high speed Internet is de rigueur.
