Summer Vacations 2020

My observations from MANY conversations with tenants:

Those with serious health concerns for themselves or extended family members are not comfortable moving forward with their lease.  All of the CDC guidelines and intense cleaning protocols will not change their perspective.  This is the tenant who will be sad, yet frankly relieved to cancel their plans.

Others are approaching their vacation rental as an opportunity to FINALLY leave their home and enjoy the shore.  They understand that the situation may not be perfect, but feel overall it’s low risk.  This summer, tenants will come prepared with their own bed pillows and Clorox wipes.  They acknowledge the dining limitations because it’s the same at home.

With the confirmation of beach openings and the hope for outdoor dining (mid June?), prospective tenants who held off making plans are calling to book. Rental property owners are grateful for the new reservations in their open weeks.

It’s a bumpy ride, but we are hanging on!
