Summary

From analyzing potential properties to effectively managing your listings, this book is your one-stop resource for making a profit with short-term rentals!

Airbnb, Vrbo, and other listing services have become massively popular in recent years - why not tap into the gold mine? Whether you’re new to real estate investing or you want to add a new strategy to your growing portfolio, vacation rentals can be an extremely lucrative way to add an extra income stream - but only if you acquire and manage your properties correctly.

Traditional rental properties are a great way to create wealth, but short-term rentals can bring in five times more cash flow than long-term rentals. Avery Carl, the CEO and founder of The Short Term Shop, will show you how to choose, acquire, and manage a short-term rental from anywhere in the country, plus how to avoid common pitfalls and overcome obstacles that keep many would-be investors from ever getting started!

In this book, you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify the best markets for short-term-rental investing
  • Analyze the potential income and profitability of a short-term-rental property
  • Self-manage a short-term rental right from your smartphone
  • Build a local boots-on-the-ground team for an out-of-state investment
  • Automate your self-management systems
  • Use the income from short-term rentals to scale your investment portfolio

Best to the point RE book I’ve read!

Books usually have so many long drawn out stories and fluff in between all the advice so the advice gets lost in the mess of it all. But this book is straight to the point, tells you exactly what you need to know, and super helpful! I learned so much!

Outstanding. Nuts a bolts + illustration

Many books in this genre either go heavy on mindset and motivation but light on details, or descend into dry technocratic analysis. This book does neither.

Instead, Avery provides the nuts-and-bolts roadmap for replicating her success, names and explains the steps and resources she relies on, and provides plenty of real-life examples to illustrate. She doesn’t purport to give the exhaustive manual, but she covers the waterfront of issues so readers know where the decision points and pitfalls might be, and then she explains how to approach them and often cites additional resources for those who want to delve deeper. In short, she covers numerous “unknown unknowns” and leaves the reader with a mix of “known knowns” and “known unknowns” for further study.

That is not to say this book fails to inspire motivation. Quite the contrary. Because Avery effectively weaves her own life story and numerous real-life illustrations throughout the instructional chapters, it would be hard to read this book and not come away with the vision to chart your own course and the motivation to actually pull the trigger.
