Would you rather not touch vacation and short-term rentals?
Instead of turning down a rental lead – turn it into cash!
Most realtors cringe when a rental lead comes their way. The MLS doesn’t allow them to search availability by specific dates. Sifting through tons of listings during the busy season, only to find that most are already booked, can be exhausting!
It is also tough to get some of the big rental agencies to answer the phone or call you back in a timely fashion. If you’re lucky enough to find a helpful rental agent – the RESTRICTIONS (90-day minimum, 120-day minimum, only one renter for the entire season…, etc.) and the token commissions can make you say, “RENTALS…NEVER AGAIN!”
What about those renters looking for a week or two, or perhaps just a few nights? There are virtually no weekly or nightly rentals in the MLS. If you send your client to VRBO, HomeAway or some of the other big vacation rental listing sites you’ll only be faced with a new set of frustrations. Let’s face it, those channels are too inefficient, frustrating and lack local service. You find it’s hard to know what’s legitimate and what’s not.
We are a local short-term rental company backed by a dedicated service team and we’d be glad to chat with the renter by phone at 239-676-0088 to answer any questions and help them choose the perfect property for their needs.
