Successful short-term vacation rentals in Portland, Maine

When you think about renting out your home to a vacationer, there are some key things to keep in mind. One of the most important things to consider is how long you plan on being away from your home. If you’re away for only a week or two, it might be better to rent out an entire home instead of just an apartment. If you want to rent out a private room or shared space, make sure that you're clear with the renter about what they can and cannot do before they move in. Every property manager has different policies when it comes to short-term rentals. Some allow short-term rentals at all times while others only allow them during certain times of the year. Make sure that your rental agreement clearly states whether or not you’re allowed to rent out your space as a short-term rental. Many people are renting out their homes because they are unable to afford a full mortgage payment or they don’t have enough time in their schedule to take care of their house every day. While short-term rentals can be lucrative, there are also many risks involved. When deciding whether or not to rent out your home as a short-term rental, make sure that you do your research and consult with an experienced property manager before taking the leap.
