Real Estate Investor, love the furnished model!
My husband and I are real estate investors in Victoria BC Canada and added a furnished rental to our portfolio in September 2018. In addition to building new homes, we have another 10 rental units. We absolutely love this model! I have been blown away by the spectacular appreciation shown by our guests, a welcome deviation from our long term tenants who often seem to resent our status as landlords.
As with our long-term rentals, we always strive to go above and beyond, and include little niceties in our unit - local soap, shampoo, condition, lotion; local treats - like bagels, wine, coffee, etc. (though not all at once and not all the time). This earned us a remarkably performing suite in a short period of time.
What tricks have you employed to help your listing “stand out from the crowd”?
