Operating Costs – Short-term rentals have several different costs that traditional long-term rentals don’t have. These costs include everything from supplying the toilet paper to replacing furniture and appliances. When deciding whether or not to join the short-term rental industry, you should carefully consider the operating costs.
Competition – With the recent explosion in new short-term property rentals popping up all over the country, competition is picking up. However, the industry is still relatively new, meaning that competition isn’t out of control and there’s still room for more.
Rental Restrictions – Another major risk to short-term rental owners are rental restrictions. These restrictions are proving to be a challenge to the fast-growing short-term rental market.
