It's clear consumers, companies, and property owners want the COVID-19 epidemic to be controlled as quickly as possible. Everyone is taking the proper measures to contain and reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
What is not clear is how quickly the short term rental market will recover.
We recognize there is strength and resilience in leisure travel destination markets, like Seacoast NH and Maine, where travelers face far less risk than they do in urban crisis centers.
The impacts of this pandemic are highly localized, meaning the markets affected are largely limited to where the virus outbreaks are. In fact, short term rentals on seacoast shoreline may be more resistant to this temporary slowdown than other markets. Here’s why:
- Vacation rentals are often in more remote locations with less direct exposure to other travelers
- Vacation rental guests often visit destinations within driving distance which allows them to bypass the potential risks of airline travel
- Because vacation rentals are booked further in advance than hotels, canceling is often more cumbersome with tougher cancellation policies
Vacation rentals are open for business. That said, it becomes even more challenging for property owners to manage and maintain their seasonal or secondary homes when faced with a stay home order.
That’s when having a local, trusted management company is important.
