You also have to look at the property itself and see if it’s even suitable to use as a rental. Does it have a separate guest cottage or room to build one? Increasing the number of units on the property means more possible income streams. But setting the per-night price goes beyond buildings.
The outdoor amenities including decks, gazebos and sitting areas are all important. Renters are looking for properties where they can really relax, entertain family, and soak up the sun.
Having well-maintained recreational items on the property, such as kayaks, outdoor games, air mattresses and sand toys, is also a big draw to potential renters without too much upfront cost. These are the little things that will set your property apart from the rest. Renters will feel like they’re getting more bang for their buck, with the potential to create even more memories with their family. If you do invest in recreational items, be sure to have lifejackets for all ages, and always do a quality check after renters leave.
