Short Term Rental Monitoring Software - Features

Understanding Short Term Rentals

A short term rental is the renting out of a private room, apartment, or home for a period that is less than 31 days. The rental generally comes fully furnished and provides an alternative to a traditional motel or hotel room. They are especially popular in cities and towns that see a large amount of tourism and are a great way to stay in an area that lacks conventional accommodations. Short term rentals are also a way for residents and tenants to make extra cash on their primary home or vacation property while not in use. The short term rental industry has exploded in popularity with over 50% of travelers in 2019 searching for them leading to a 277% growth. Sites like Airbnb, HomeAway, FlipKey, and VRBO have seen record growth in recent years due to people looking for these non-traditional accommodations. However, some municipalities, apartment communities and HOAs have rules in place to limit or restrict the use of properties for short term rentals. Also, some states have put limitations in place such as the need to acquire a permit or license before a property can be rented out. Properties found not following the rules and not in compliance with regulations can be issued citations that are often aggressively pursued.
