Episode 064 - Seven Things You Can Do to Prevent Parties in Your Short Term Rental

 

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

Here are Seven Things you can do to prevent parties in your Short Term Rental:

 

  • In your listing and in your House Rules, make it very clear that NO PARTIES ARE ALLOWED EVER. Be so clear as to add that those who break the rules will be responsible for any damages, all repairs, all fines, and fees, including but not limited to all legal fees by you and the owner to recover costs, lawsuits, fines, and fees you incurred.

 

  • Use tools like Noise Aware: a noise detector that measures the sound in decibels without infringing on a guests’ privacy. When the level rises above your set amount, you will be notified by text and email.  You should then notify guests by message THROUGH PLATFORM and by a quick phone call right away.  Document everything.

Episode 059 - Addendums: What to Put in Them & Your Co-Hosting Contracts

 

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

What Type of Things Go into an Addendum?

 

Title the Addendum to Link it to the Original Contract, Date, and attach to the original.  State effective dates and any additional payments (or state the fact that there are none).

 

Define everyone involved and what roles they play. Make it crystal clear who you are, what you do, and who your guests are and what part they play in your business.  Be clear in and make it understandable to those not in our business.

Investing in Out-of-State Real Estate

Investing in Out-of-State Real Estate

 

Buying real estate rarely goes smoothly, and buying property out-of-state has even more potential challenges. If you are planning on renting property out-of-state, there are similar challenges involved.  However, either are entirely manageable if the potential trouble areas are planned for and addressed.  Many people rent and own property out-of-state, and you can too. 

 

Also, whether you decide to buy a property or rent it, let’s just call it what it is: Controlling the Property.  Whether you rent or own, you are “controlling” the property in order to run a Short-Term Rental Business out of it and you must be able to “control” the use of that property within the eyes of the law.

 

Reasons for Buying Out-of-State Real Estate

 

There are several reasons why you might consider owning or renting a property in another state. Maybe local real estate prices are simply too high...

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

LIES WE ARE TOLD & HOLD AS LIMITING BELIEFS... It takes money to make money. NOT TRUE! You just have to work harder.

Co-hosting is to Short Term Rentals what Wholesaling is to Real Estate Investing.

The Key to Any Type of RE Investing is Marketing! Consistent Marketing is best but you have to FIND the properties. Actively go looking for the type of homes you need.

What type of property do I look for? You are looking for a home that no one lives in but is furnished. It could even be a staged house for sale. Just non-owner occupied, no one living there, but furnished.

Where and how do I find these properties?

*Buy a list on Listability.com

*Craigslist

*Zillow

*Put out Yellow Signs (Bandit Signs)

*Realtors

*Attorneys

You are looking for homeowners who are open to allowing you to host guests in their already furnished home.

What is my job as Co-host? You will run the STR business. You will get the property BNB ready. Clean & Stage,...
