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
  • Automate your self-management systems
  • Use the income from short-term rentals to scale your investment portfolio

Highly Recommend

This book is awesome. My wife and I have long-term rental properties, but we're about to start our first short-term rental property. Avery does a great job of providing the exact details we need to get started on this journey and how to be successful. I highly recommend this book. Thanks Avery!

Amazing content, great step-by-step guide to begin and scale your STR business

I originally purchased the audiobook but ended up purchasing the paperback version before I even finished the audiobook! So much great content to go back and reference no matter where you are in your journey. I plan on using this as our guide to begin and scale our STR business. The content is very digestible for all REI experience levels. Additionally, I was dead set on hiring a management company until I read this book. I now plan on self-managing our current and all future STR's. Thank you, Avery!!
