Great Options for Short-Term Renting Seasons
Are you transitioning to something new for a short season and thinking about renting your home out to people? Maybe your work is 30+ miles away, and you are tired of driving back and forth, but you don’t want to sell your home or permanently move out of the city you are currently residing in. Maybe you have decided to spend a short season abroad traveling, studying, or doing some work and you don’t want to sell your house because you know your time overseas is only going to be short-term. So what are some great options if you are in this kind of a predicament? As property managers in Redding and Shasta County who have years of experience under our belts, we would love to offer some suggestions that could help you out.
1. LISTING YOUR HOUSE ON A SHORT-TERM RENTAL SITE – short-term rental sites such as Airbnb, Roomorama, and CorporateHousing make it possible for you to rent out either a room in your house or your whole house to people who are looking for a place to stay in your area on a short-term basis. Short-term rental sites have become a huge hit for many reasons being: people get to stay in a bedroom and place that feels like a home rather than a hotel room, people usually have access to the kitchen for storing and cooking their own food whereas they don’t at a hotel, and it can potentially be cheaper than staying at a hotel. These sites are a great option for renting out your space short-term!
2. RENTING TO STUDENTS – renting out to students is another great option if you are looking to rent out your house on a short-term basis simply because students are constantly in transition. Let’s say you are going to be gone for only the summer months. Renting your house out to students for the summer is perfect because it is normal for students to have to find new housing for the Fall anyway if they are continuing on in school. Or let’s say you are only wanting to rent your house out for six months to a year or for two years. You can easily rent your house out to students by the semester or by the school year and then rent it out for the summers as well depending on if the students who rented during the school year are staying or leaving. Housing students is a great way to keep your home filled while you are temporarily gone!
