Vacation Rentals & airbnb's can be a great way to exponentially increase the returns on your real estate investments. But there are also many pitfalls that investors must avoid and be aware of in order to be successful.
On February 23, 2018, the RPOA hosted an expert panel to discuss short-term vacation rentals - how they work, why they're such a great strategy for real estate investors, tips on being successful, and how to avoid the pitfalls that can cost you extra money.
