Renting your home to travelers and others who need a temporary place to stay is a great way to expand your travel budget and make sure your home is cared for while you’re away. But it takes a lot of work and attention to set up and manage your short-term rental, and there’s lots of competition, especially in popular areas. What better way to learn what to do – and not to do – than by reading what experts have to say? A good source for information and tips is the owners blog at Tripping.com, where you’ll find a collection of articles written by “industry experts,” people who know a lot about the ins and outs of short-term rentals. Although the focus is on vacation rentals (Tripping.com is a portal to top vacation rental sites), much of what these authors have to say is useful for those of us who rent out and exchange our primary residences. Take a look.
