About the Property


About the Deal

Why I liked it

I happened to get linked up a STR management group because they were run by vets and operated in just about all of the markets I did.

I didn’t know what the connection was yet, but figured there had to be one. I brought up the fact that I was interested in STRs but hadn’t really taken the plunge.

I happened to be visiting one of my new markets and one of their established markets at the time, and they said they had a property I should check out.

They had managed it for the previous 2 years and it had done very well and the owner was looking to sell but they wanted to keep managing it since it was performing so well. I went to look at it the next day and went under contract the day after.

Lessons Learned

1. Lending on short term rentals can be “complicated,” even if you do have two years of historicals.

2. If you can, avoid using lenders and title companies who aren’t familiar with exactly what you’re doing.

3. Sometimes a slightly higher interest rate or additional one or two points at closing are absolutely worth it to make sure the loan closes smoothly and with the terms it was supposed to.
