Written by Brian Enright

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


The first step is to look at the laws that your city has regarding short term rentals.  Many cities have restrictions on short term rentals (typically less than 30 days) that if not followed can lead you to penalties and fines.  You can easily check to see what your regulations are by doing a Google search with your city name and the key words “short-term rental regulation”.  There have been hotel and zoning laws enacted by your city far before the AirBNB

The USUThis is one of our new favorite things!  The USU was created for urban dwellers, and is especially useful for high-rise residents as it provides much-needed storage space right in your parking space.  USU launched in Austin, TX, where they have hundreds of units in buildings throughout the city.  Because of the demand USU has expanded and can now ship and set up their storage units throughout the United States.  If you could use about 60 cubic feet of extra storage give them a call at 512-981-5735 or visit the USU website.  They even provide "white glove" delivery and set up right in your parking space.  Click here to see their brochure.

Really!  Here are the details.

This former Washington DC schoolhouse was purchased by the current owners in 2000 from the city.  It was vacant, flooded and filled with pigeons… The owners undertook a massive, renovation and restoration project and created a spectacularly glorious property. (see all the pictures HERE) This property is listed by TTR Southey’s agents Peter Lane and Robert Sanders.

They created 9 apartments PLUS a 9,500 SF owners unit with a restaurant sized kitchen, palatial living room with 50 foot ceilings, an airplane themed movie theater, a phenomenal roof deck and more bedrooms than you could count. The creativity and devotion displayed in their creation is truly inspiring.
