2021 Trends for Vacation Rental Properties

Another busy summer of visitors arriving soon!

1) With limitations and concerns about indoor dining, 2020 tenants prepared more meals at their rental homes.  The trend is likely to continue in 2021.  Inventory your kitchen with this in mind and replace well used cookie sheets, frying pans, utensils, etc.  Make sure to run the oven’s cleaning cycle prior to your first guest.

2) Gas grills have always been popular.  Check on the condition of the grates, and grill tools.

3) Some owners are creating “work/learn from home” space in their properties.  Adding a simple desk (by wall outlets of course) is a practical and appreciated update.

4) We expect another extended rental season.  Realistically, the change over cleaning crews have limited time, so it’s helpful if owners plan one or two in person visits during the summer.  Check the ceiling fans and HVAC return vents for dust, clean the outdoor shower, and organize/clean the deck furniture.  If distance makes this impractical , work with your cleaner to tackle a few add on tasks throughout the summer months.

5) Speaking of deck furniture-the value of outdoor living space has never been greater! Look at your pieces objectively for comfort, cleanliness and function.

Planning for summer is a wonderful distraction from our snowy February!

I am here to help with any questions in the meantime.
