3 Tips for Investing in Your First Vacation Rental Property

Added: Jan 17, 2022
Category: Property Owner Tips

According to Forbes, Florida’s tourism industry experienced a massive rebound this past summer. This means that right now is the perfect time to invest in a vacation rental property.


If you've already begun to search for the right property, that’s excellent! Vacation rentals are a fantastic way to supplement your income while having an exciting place to visit in your spare time. However, you should keep a few things in mind before investing for the first time.


Tips for Investing in Your First Vacation Rental Property


Find the Perfect Spot


The location should be a top concern when you’re preparing to invest in a vacation rental property. Currently, travelers have specific things in mind when choosing a location. Recent research states that 61% of families prefer traveling to locations with outdoor-oriented activities instead of major cities. While urban centers will still be attractive to some, we expect vacationers to flock to the beach post-pandemic. Kids love playing at the beach, adults love the chance to unwind, and all can enjoy the outdoors. After being cramped inside for so long, tropical vacations are the perfect antidote!


Sanibel and Captiva beaches provide endless fun, from boating to shelling to water sports. There's no better place to invest in a property, and our area guide can give you all the information you need!


Buy Something You Love


You will likely visit your property on occasion for your vacation. If you pick something you love, chances are others will love it too! Think about what you value most in a vacation rental and what amenities you require. Do you prefer an ocean-front view? Do you enjoy a private pool or a hot tub? Do you tend to use in-unit laundry appliances? If you don't know where to start when investing, it's always best to put yourself in a renter's shoes. Refer back to your high standards to set the bar for your property.


Use a Trusted Property Management Company


Making a purchase is just the first step. From there, you’ll have to maintain your investment and keep renters booking. If you have a lot on your plate already, this can prove to be an overwhelming task. However, the goal is to keep maximizing your profits, which can't happen without efficient property management strategies.
