Short Term Rentals via Zoom

STR Renovations are Different - Where to Spend the Money

Monday, April 22, 2024 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

STR Renovations are Different - Where to Spend the Money


  1. Think TOUGH. Sure, you want your rental property to look nice, but smart renovation can enable your property to STAY nice.
  2. Always think of your cleaners! Your cleaners are some of the most vital keys to your success. Making life easy for them benefits everyone.
  3. Beware of shiny objects. Setting aside any structural renovation that needs to be done, for each area that you are thinking of devoting cosmetic renovation dollars to, the decision should be based on this question - Is this investment in renovation going to make my property more desirable to guests?
  4. Learn to love math. I like to think of each STR as its own math story problem, made up of factors unique to each property owner - purchase / carrying costs / rental income (projected or historical), etc. You don't want to embark on any cosmetic renovation plans without first running ALL the numbers.
