Tip for Bradenton Vacation Rental Owners:
Leave Regulations – and Profit Maximization – to a Full-Service Vacation Rental Manager

Bradenton airbnb management

Bradenton, FL property owners say local regulations governing short-term vacation rentals are filled with “garbage.” They have a point.

When Ordinance 17-476 went into effect, owners of some vacation rental properties that required side yard trash pickup service missed that fact. It was easy to overlook, because the only way to know was to read the Ordinance, which doesn’t exactly contain consumer-friendly language.

The side yard trash pickup requirement doesn’t apply to vacation rental properties exempt from TPLE regulations and licensing requirements. That’s because those properties are located in the Planned Development, Mixed-Use, Limited Commercial, or General Commercial zoning districts.

The side yard pickup requirements also don’t pertain to vacation rentals in R-1 and R-2 residential zones if a property owner lives in part of the home or duplex, or the property has onsite management at least six hours a day.

Got it? We didn’t think so. And that’s just a portion of what Bradenton, Florida vacation rental property owners who go it alone need to know relating to garbage. There’s plenty more where that came from on the regulatory front.

San Diego Vacation Rental Management
(or, a Guide for Property Owners
on Riding the Roller-Coaster)

san diego airbnb management

In 2018, the San Diego City Council approved regulations governing short-term vacation rentals. Three months later, they abruptly canceled them. Now, with the City Council under pressure to enact new regulations, many vacation rental property owners are feeling as if they’re in limbo and waiting for the next shoe to drop.

It’s understandable if the ups and downs of San Diego vacation rental regulations induce a sense of dizziness. But it’s worth emphasizing that when short-term vacation rentals are properly managed, ownership can be largely stress-free – and extremely lucrative.

Consider this: AirDNA lists a $210 average daily rate for San Diego vacation rentals – and a 69% average occupancy rate. This means many San Diego vacation rental owners are making what they consider very good money during each day of occupancy. Trouble is, they aren’t getting enough occupants.

One big contributor to underperformance for San Diego vacation rental property owners is the complexity of the optimization game on sites like Airbnb. Most owners aren’t experts in the hyper-competitive world of Airbnb (or Vrbo, or HomeAway, and so on). And with 11,000+ active rentals in San Diego, according to AirDNA, it’s easy to feel a bit intimidated.

These challenges have led lots of San Diego property owners to full-service vacation rental property management companies for handling everything from staying on top of changing regulations to managing site listings for a competitive edge – and even daily rate optimization via advanced technology for revenue management.

Here at One Fine Flat, we do all that and more. Our aim is to be the very best vacation rental property manager in San Diego, so you largely sit back and collect a check each month.

Whether you’re in Mission Beach, Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, over in La Jolla, or elsewhere in greater San Diego, we’re ready to help keep you off the roller-coaster and on the gravy train. Schedule a complimentary consultation with a One Fine Flat expert on short-term vacation rental management in San Diego. If you qualify, you’ll receive a free revenue projection for your property. And you’ll learn how One Fine Flat makes the entire process surprisingly easy for owners.

City of Anaheim to Vacation Rental Owners: Manage Your Properties With Care … or Else

Anaheim airbnb rental

Attractions like Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center – combined with a desire among visitors to avoid hotels – make Anaheim a popular location among users of Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway, and other sites.

But many owners have found the local regulatory environment daunting. Some recent history: In 2019, following complaints from property owners, the City of Anaheim reversed a ban and phase-out of short-term vacation rentals and allowed most owners with permits to keep operating.

Under these rules, short-term vacation rental owners in Anaheim, California who opted to shut down by August 2019 must do so. Short-term rentals located where homeowner associations have banned them must close by December 2022, but those with permits can relocate elsewhere in Anaheim. Other than relocations, for now, permits for new vacation rentals aren’t being granted.

Vacation rental owners will continue to pay the City of Anaheim’s transient occupancy tax. They must also comply with a strict set of “good neighbor” rules or risk losing their ability to legally operate.

Rules include having a local contact ready to respond around the clock, within 45 minutes, to complaints and violations; supplying contact information to neighbors; limiting guests to those ages 21 and above; and compliance with a “quiet time” from 10 pm to 9 am.

Punishment for violators is severe. Two major violations or 10 minor violations within a one-year period are “grounds to revoke a permit,” according to the Anaheim Fact Sheet on Short-Term Rentals. Fines run as high as $2,500 for owners/operators and up to $500 for guests.

In this challenging environment, it’s no surprise that owners are turning to full-service vacation rental property management companies to ensure compliance with regulations – and handle everything from prospective renter inquiries arriving from sites like Airbnb to contact with renters and review management.

After all, many if not most Anaheim property owners don’t consider themselves experts at the vacation rental game and prefer to largely sit back and receive a direct deposit from their vacation rental management service each month.

For owners looking for the best full-service vacation rental property manager in Anaheim, we suggest a call with us. Schedule a complimentary consultation with a One Fine Flat expert on short-term vacation rental management in Anaheim. If you qualify, you’ll receive a free revenue projection for your property. And you’ll learn how One Fine Flat makes the entire process remarkably easy.
