Although we haven’t been able to put the pandemic in the rear-view mirror quite yet, it isn’t too early to take a look at some of the lasting impacts the pandemic has made on the Cape and Islands short-term rental industry. WeNeedaVacation owner Joan Talmadge and I sat down together recently and did just that.
We have observed some trends and conditions that may have actually started before the outbreak of COVID but have become even more noticeable since. Some include trends in booking and vacationer expectations and some are simple changes in the way homeowners manage their rentals.
Watch as we share our observations, based on both our personal experiences in managing our own rental homes and on what we hear from fellow rental homeowners.
