Short Term Rental Riches

Mar 14, 2023

An exciting thing is happening in the real estate industry; the technology sector has finally entered and embraced this age-old industry. 

Today we have improved processes and efficiencies across the board and, for many, higher investment returns. Companies like Blackstone for example, have acquired nearly $600 billion in real estate world wide. 

That just wasn't possible to manage in the recent past. 

This week I will be discussing why I beleive virtual management is the future of all property management.

I've been scaling slowly but have certainly learned a lot over the years. After managing over 25,000 guests with my team and I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I’ve made. 

It’s important to always remember there are two sides to every story.

So from the less exciting side, today’s story reads…

“Short term rental owner fails to manage his property professionally, or hire the right manager, and now has another job has to go back to his day-job because his expenses have exceeded income”

So what do you do? 

Option #1: You can catch all the latest youtube videos, blogs, and podcast episodes pulling out every tip and trick you’ve learned. This works for a lot of us (and recommended if you have the time) but a lot of us don’t have the time.

Option #2: Explore virtual management options where you can use the expertise of established companies (or co-hosts) to manage your properties professionally and many times at a discounted rate compared to traditional STR managers.

Option #3: You turn to your local property manager knowing they have a firm grasp on the local market but the 25% commission digs even deeper into your pocketbook. 

Whatever way we go we need to be careful with who we entrust to help us with our properties and if we are managing them ourselves we need to make sure we don’t skip any steps–the same steps professionals dedicate their careers to staying on top of.

My pick? Option #2.

Let’s talk about what exactly virtual management is, why I think it’s the future for most STR owners, and what you need to know if you are interested in having your property virtually managed (or are planning on doing it for someone else).

Stay tuned as I break down for you:

  • Why Virtual management is the future 

  • Virtual management Vs. Traditional Property Management

  • Why choosing the right partner can make or break your rental performance

  • Are the big box management companies, like Evolve, right for you? 

  • How much does virtual management cost

  • Are you interested in managing other people's properties? 

  • What the onboarding process looks like (listener Q&A)
