Home Owner Checklist - What Makes A Profitable Vacation Rental:

Location - Depending your property location, you may see higher occupancy in different seasons of the year. ( Lakefront homes in Summer, Ski resort locals in Winter etc)

Amenities - Adding most desirable amenities such as a hot tub, pool table, or game tables, etc can boost your property in search, as well as offer potentially higher rates based on demand.

Style/Decor - Creating the right experience to ensure comfort and sleeping arrangements that will maximize the occupancy of your property. Adding outdoor patio seating, BBQ areas, or furnishing an experience for a retreat can really boost your properties potential for bookings and revenue.
