Can you rent my home if it is for sale?

Yes, renting and selling at the same time is no problem. In fact, renting short term can be a great way to offset the costs of upkeep and cleaning.  Most guests don’t mind a real estate showing during their stay and are generally happy to keep the house tidy when it happens.

We can manage showings, disburse keys to real estate agents and keep everything running smoothly.

A proven track record of rental success is also a great way to increase your home’s value as many potential buyers are considering their vacation rental potential when they buy.

As reservations are taken 3-6 months in advance, there is is the possibility of your home changing ownership where future reservation exists. As many new owners have no plans to occupy their new home immediately, future reservations are often seen as a plus.  On occasion, a rental listing site may assess a fee for a cancelled reservation, however this can typically be avoided by transferring the reservation to alternative accommodation with guest consent.
