Posted on February 23, 2013
Do you have a second home in a popular vacation area?  If so, and you would like to turn the time its sits empty into some extra income, then renting out a vacation property can be a great way to generate additional revenue.  There are a few things to consider before you take the plunge, generally it’s not as easy as finding a renter and cashing in.
There are taxes, fees and payments, insurance, inquiries and bookings, cleaning and maintenance, marketing, and other administrative tasks involved. Overwhelmed yet?

An experienced property management company can make the daunting task of renting your property completely manageable. There are different types of property management. They range from booking services, which will focus on marketing, and managing your inquiries and bookings, property management companies, which will handle maintenance and upkeep, and finally, full-service agencies which can take care of everything from collecting payments and meeting guests as they arrive to marketing. It all depends on your budget, the amount of time you have to dedicate to managing the many aspects of renting, and how involved you want to be.
