48. How to Determine if You Will Do Well in a NEW Market

It can be nerve wracking investing in a new market. Will a short-term rental do well there? What happens if it doesn’t stay booked? Is there too much competition? These are often questions that race through our minds and keep a lot of people from investing in the first place. Luckily information is readily available to help us determine the potential occupancy, potential average daily rate to charge, seasonality and potential revenue of a market among other things BEFORE we invest there. Tune in this week as Tim discusses: 

  • Software tools to forecast demand
  • The metrics; potential occupancy, average daily rate to charge, seasonality, regulations
  • Going directly to the sources (Airbnb) 
  • Staying in the new market!
  • Your ultimate back up plan
