Over the past several years, renting vacation properties has gained a considerable amount of momentum, and for good reason. With the expansion of the economy, it is now much easier for families to rent a vacation home of their own that they can enjoy throughout the year. In this blog, we’ll discuss what to look for in a vacation rental property, so you can find the perfect getaway for your family.

Our 16,000-acre neighborhood is at the base of some of the most popular ski resorts, making it the ideal location for your next family getaway.

Choosing The Perfect Location
If you’re interested in investing in a rental vacation property, the first decision to make is where you would like your new home to be. As with any venture into the real estate industry, the location of your property has almost everything to do with the profitability of your home. Many real estate professionals argue that the location of your investment is even more important than the home itself. This is because you can change the house in any way you see fit, but the location will always be permanent.
While this should go without saying, it’s important to choose a rental property in a part of the country that is desirable. If you’re a fan of outdoor winter activities, Steamboat Springs may be the perfect place to call home. Seven thousand feet
up in the Colorado Rockies, this beautiful city is nestled quietly below one of the largest ski mountains in North America. Mostly known for its small ranching community, Steamboat Springs remains firmly linked to a Western tradition that sets it apart from other towns in Colorado. With 165 walking trails and nearly 3,000 acres of ski hills, outdoor enthusiasts flock to Steamboat Springs all year round.
Find Out What Amenities Are Important To You
Your vacation home should be a place where you can unwind and enjoy the company of your family and friends. As you start looking for communities and areas to rent in, take some time to make a list of amenities you are looking for in a vacation home. Some common questions to ask yourself may include:
- How many guests will there be?
- How many bedrooms are ideal for your trip?
- How many bathrooms would you like?
- Are you looking for a one-story, two-story, or three-story home?
- Are utilities included in the price of the renal property?
- Is parking included?
- Do they offer RV parking or boat storage?
- Is the house near popular attractions and restaurants?
- Do they offer shuttles to and from the airport?
