Palm Springs and Palm Desert Vacation Rental Owners Shouldn’t be Deterred by Regulations

Palm Springs Airbnb management

Yes, regulations for vacation rental owners in Palm Springs and Palm Desert can be daunting and even intimidating. But they shouldn’t stop you from taking advantage of what could be an excellent income source.

According to the Mashvisor Palm Springs Real Estate Market Report 2020, the city’s average monthly Airbnb rental income is $4,470. That works out to $53,640 a year. Of course, that’s just the average. Some short-term vacation rentals pull in far more in annual income (and some considerably less).

Now, about those pesky regulations: if you’ve Googled your way to the 21-page Ordinance No. 1918 or combed through the Frequently Asked Questions document on short-term vacation rentals in Palm Springs or the collection of documents on Palm Desert vacation rentals and concluded you have no desire to tackle this on your own, we have a suggestion: don’t (we’ll discuss an easy way to take care of this stuff in a moment).

After all, few Palm Springs and Palm Desert vacation rental property owners are interested in the minutia of existing regulations governing vacation rentals – or in staying on top of regulatory changes going forward.

And regulatory compliance is just one facet of optimized vacation rental property management. On Airbnb and many other sites, listings should take advantage of each site’s qualities and attract the right potential renters. Communication with inquirers and renters must be flawless – and timely (even during evening hours, including, at times, 2 am calls from renters).

Pricing needs to be optimized on a daily basis. Housekeeping must not only be maintained at a hotel-quality level; housekeepers should be trained to spot damaged items, wear-and-tear, and other issues, and promptly report them, to help maintain strong reviews.

On that note, “review management” isn’t just a fancy term; it could mean the difference between high and mediocre net income. Gaining Superhost status on Airbnb is, for many owners, a financial bonanza.

As for that easy way to keep you from having to go it alone, many owners have chosen to get the best Palm Springs or Palm Desert vacation rental management company available. Very often, the added income from price optimization alone covers the monthly management fee.

With a vacation rental property management business like One Fine Flat managing your property, you offload a big burden while enhancing your listings, broadening your exposure, improving your reviews, and raising your income.

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.

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.
