Short-term vacation rentals are an affordable and little-known way to monetize your property’s value. However, it is important to understand the location, the regulations and the potential pitfalls before taking the plunge. As with any type of rental property, you must ensure that your property meets all local regulations. You should also ensure that your property is in good condition before taking a short-term rental booking.

Before getting started, it pays to do some research. There are plenty of resources available to help you get started, including websites like Airbnb, which have information on local laws and regulations as well as listings of already established short-term vacation rental operators.
