    I always thought the reasoning was so they knew which linen to wash, probably shouldn’t be trusting random guests and just wash them all anyways

    Fine print: must supply your own lawnmower and cut the grass before check out
    If staying during the fall, clean out gutters within an hour of check in
    Shovel and salt the driveway during winter stay.

    You will get over that quickly. I sold one of my cabins earlier this year for over double what I paid for it 18 months earlier. I was able to take the profit and put in investments that don’t require me to be involved day to day and I make more money than what I was making with the cabin. I still have one other STR that does well. Would gladly sell it if the appreciation had been anywhere as good. I won’t miss dealing with some of the idiots that you get when you rent properties to people.

    Been renting out since 2020 and haven't had too many idiots. Just filing our first insurance claim through VRBO today. Has anyone gone through it before on there?

    So we put our property on Airbnb 2 weeks ago and immediately had seven reservations spread over the rest of the year. We were excited but wanted to add a few things and take a short holiday out there. While driving 13 hours to the western slope a reservation came in starting the next night. Ended up sleeping at our grandparents down in the valley and we just got the email about our first 1k dollars has been sent by Airbnb!!!

    We’re on the board!

    Have my eyes on a third place. Different location but listed for 155k in July and now asking 105k. Could prob grab for 80-85k tbh. It's really pretty nice, as well. 4/2 1500 sq ft. Old house but lots of updates.

    Bought a duplex in New Orleans a few weeks ago, just got the appraisal back at $10k over contract, full steam ahead. Rates obviously suck but it will still be profitable, hopefully refi in 2-3 years.

    Sold fucking turnkey, so convenient.

    New Orleans has a moratorium on new STR permits in the city, only way to do multi-fanily STRs is buy a place that already has a permit grandfathered in. When they come on the market they're usually sold in under 24 hours. Had an absolute rockstar realtor, we had an offer 6 hours after it went for sale. Fucking riiiiight.
