Why Hire Me to Sell Your Short-Term Rental?
1. MAXIMUM PROFIT
I will value and price your STR as a turn-key BUSINESS, not as a house, which means maximum profit for you.
2. EXPERT KNOWLEDGE
- I attend EVERY showing and my knowledge of the local STR Rules & Regulations enables me to represent, and sell, your STR Business with confidence.
- When an Investor decides to purchase an STR, it's usually the 1st Vacation Rental they have ever purchased.
- Because of this, they are usually not familiar with the local STR rules & regulations.
- In most cases, the Buyer's Agent isn't familiar with the local STR rules & regulations either.
- Because I can answer all of their questions, with the authority of an "expert", the Buyer's confidence that they understand exactly what they are getting into, increases.
- When a Buyer is comfortable, that they know exactly what they are buying, they will make a purchase offer.
- If they feel they don't know everything, or worst yet, the listing agent doesn't know everything about what they are buying, they will not make a purchase offer.
3. EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE CLOSING VACATION RENTAL DEALS
- 95% of my past sales have been Vacation Rentals.
- I know all the questions a Buyer will ask, before an offer is made.
- I know all of the issues that will come up, after an offer is accepted.
- And, I know how to address all the questions and all the issues that can cause an STR deal to fall apart.
- The bottom line... I've sold so many Vacation Rentals, that I know how to keep a deal together, which means fewer headaches for both Buyer and Seller.
4. NETWORK OF STR BUYERS READY TO PURCHASE
- Because I sell so many Vacation Rental properties, I have developed a large network of STR Buyers and REALTORS® that represent STR Buyers.
- As soon as I get a new Vacation Rental listing, I know exactly who to call to get a qualified Buyer.
- This enables me to sell my STR listings quickly and at full-asking price.
- In fact, many of my listing receive multiple offers, which increases the likelihood of securing a purchase offer over the asking price.
5. NO BUSINESS DISRUPTION WHILE SELLING YOUR STR
- No "For Sale" sign will be placed in the yard, or property window, while your STR is being sold.
- No "REALTOR® Lock Box" will be place on the door.
- No showings will be conducted while guests are staying at the property.
- I will do everything possible to ensure your Vacation Rental business is not interrupted while your STR is being sold.
6. CONTINUE MAKING MONEY UNTIL CLOSE OF ESCROW
- Since you are selling your property as a business, not a house, you will continue to operate your STR business, and continue making money from it, until escrow closes.
- The more "future reservations" you book, while your STR is for sale, the more desirable it will be to potential Buyers.
- So, you can keep booking reservations, attending to guests and making money from your Vacation Rental until the day escrow closes.
7. SEAMLESS RESERVATION TRANSFER PROCESS
- I have a fully documented, seamless, process for transferring future bookings from STR Seller to STR Buyer that makes is easy for everyone involved (Seller, Buyer, Guests & Booking Sites).
- Before escrow closes, your booking sites (AirBnB, VRBO, etc.) and Guests (with future reservations) will need to be informed of your Vacation Rental sale.
- If not handled correctly, this can become a nightmare for everyone involved, resulting in canceled reservations and lost revenue for the Buyer, angry Guests, headaches for the Seller and confusion from the Booking Sites.
- When handled correctly, the Seller, Buyer, Guests and Booking Sites know exactly what to do to ensure a smooth transfer of reservations that will result in no lost revenue for the Buyer, no headaches for the Guests or STR Seller and no confusion on the part of the STR Booking Sites.
8. NO SELLER ESCROW FEES
- My strategic partnership with an escrow company that charges no escrow fees to Sellers, saves my clients thousands of dollars in closing costs.
