More than 25,000 books sold since October 2021! From analyzing potential properties to effectively managing your listings, this book is your one-stop resource for making a profit with short-term rentals.

Airbnb, Vrbo, and other listing services have become massively popular in recent years—why not tap into the gold mine? Whether you’re new to real estate investing or you want to add a new strategy to your growing portfolio, vacation rentals can be an extremely lucrative way to add an extra income stream—but only if you acquire and manage your properties correctly.

Traditional rental properties are a great way to create wealth, but short-term rentals can bring in five times more cash flow than long-term rentals. Avery Carl, the CEO and founder of The Short Term Shop, will show you how to choose, acquire, and manage a short-term rental from anywhere in the country, plus how to avoid common pitfalls and overcome obstacles that keep many would-be investors from ever getting started!

  • Identify the best markets for short-term-rental investing
  • Analyze the potential income and profitability of a short-term-rental property
  • Self-manage a short-term rental right from your smartphone
  • Build a local boots-on-the-ground team for an out-of-state investment

Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth

Stephen Clarke

My wife & I have a couple of LTR & have been struggling with ways of coming up with capital to finance more. After seeing your interview on BiggerPockets and reading this book I believe that it has given me a lot of courage for me & my wife to move forward in purchasing our first STR. I loved the book & I am planning on using the information in this book on our journey as STR owner’s. Thank you.

Thanks to this book, BiggerPockets as a whole, and every single resource I've been finding since getting into this environment, I just bought my first house hack and will be looking into make it a short term rental! And my goal is to have at least 4 properties by the end of 2022!

Gold nuggets & paradigm shifts!

Great book, quick and easy read (or listen;) I found myself saying "that 1 piece of information was worth 100x the book price!" over and over.

I was stressing about self managing my Joshua Tree Airbnb from San Diego, but didn't want to give up 20-40% of my income to a property manager. "Short Term Rental, Long Term Wealth" has eliminated my remote MGMT fears.

My entire perspective on the Airbnb client relationship is shifted, and I now have the confidence to self manage remotely.

This book delivered exactly as promised.

I highly recommend this book to anyone in or aspiring to be in the STVR business.

Thanks Avery for a no B.S. guide to maximizing my STVR profits!
