Are you thinking about putting your condo on one of the many vacation rental sites like AirBNB but not certain if your HOA allows it?  Here are some steps to help you navigate the process of renting out your condo for a short term vacation rental and avoiding personal liability.Airbnb Logo

One real estate agent recently pulled market data on 750,000 homes across the country. Here is what he discovered about Winter listings: 

  • they sell quicker: 46 days winter vs. 55 days summer
  • they have a better chance of selling: 59.2% winter vs. 53.1% summer
  • they sell closest to original price: a 2.7% drop from the final price in winter vs. a 5.2% drop from the final price in summer ( more than $7,000 on a $300,000 home)

This is the perfect time to list your home! With many folks waiting until Spring, you can cut down on the competition by listing now. You will have a solid pool of serious buyers who are motivated by interest rates that are still at an all time low.
