  1. Airbnb Shortterm Rentals Are Worth Investing In!

    More and more people started a real estate project or company on the side since the economics of short-term rental sites Airbnb, Roomorama and VRBO also appeal to people who do not live in the house or apartment they rent out. This enables all kinds of people, from newbie property owners as well as professional real estate investors, to make a profit from renting out the home.

  2. Super interesting! Thanks. I was wondering if you know anything about https://residology.com/ ? I am going for about a week to Austin TX and was thinking about doing this, I don’t need a full house and like the idea of a furnished Apartment. I am curious about what you know/think. Thanks!

    1. Hi Lucy,

      Thanks for the kind words. I can’t say I know about Residology specifically, but serviced apartments and corporate housing are other great options for a non-hotel stay. I’m sure if you contact the company directly they will be able to answer any queries you have and help you to make up your mind.

      Best wishes,

      Jess

    1. Hi Melissa,

  6. Hi Jess, I hope you are doing well. Thanks for the article. Wanted to know if any articles/lists have been published about great blogs from the rental owners? I ask because I want to start for my new Florida rental and was looking for great ones to learn from. My rental is Sunshine Stay IRB on Facebook if you want to follow along. Who doesn’t like some good before and after pictures while we renovate?? 🙂
    Thanks
