If you decide to rent out a home in the short term for vacation purposes to families, this will mean some expenditure will be required to clean the home itself and maintain the grounds every time one vacationing family leaves to ready it for the next guests. After all, hotels don’t simply leave rooms in the same state that previous guests left it, and you’ll need to do the same.
Regardless of which route you take, as a landlord, you will be responsible for the maintenance of the residence and some or all of the utilities. Always make sure to keep in mind these costs in mind when budgeting out the income of your rent.
Orlando rentals are in demand with investors, so having a residence that’s already been converted over to a rental unit saves time—and ultimately money—for those that are looking to invest. Ensure that your unit is in good condition and make all appropriate repairs and renovations. If tenants have recently vacated the premises, now is a good time to add value to the building with repainted walls, checking the wiring and making sure that everything is set to make a good impression on a buyer. If there are already tenants present, this can be an added bonus to investors as it means that rental income is generated immediately rather than having to wait for tenants to take up residence.
