Short-term rentals have seen growing popularity over the past few years and there’s never been a better time to invest in the rental market. With domestic travel on the rise, the demand for short-term rentals has simultaneously grown which is great for people looking to invest. The bounce back we’re seeing in the Sydney rental market and opportunities for growth are exactly why 2021 is the time to invest in the short-term rental market.

But where does someone start? Accessing the Australian short-term rental market has traditionally been an expensive and difficult exercise. These are the best ways to set yourself up for success whether you’re fresh to the market or a seasoned professional.

1. Improve your listing

How do you get the competitive edge in a growing rental market? It starts with a great listing. Showcasing your property’s best assets, putting your guest’s needs and comforts first and getting positive guest reviews all help you stand out from the growing competition.

The first question you may have when investing in a property is whether you should list for short or long-term rental. And while short-term rentals are showing great promise in 2021, that is not to discount the many benefits of long-term rentals.
