Today I am going to give some advice for those that are looking at renting a condo for their next vacation.. You might be planning a big family gathering which no one has the room or motivation to host. Or your nuclear family might just to take a break from your house. Either way, here are some things that you will want to keep in mind.
- In real estate, they say that location is everything. You will want to be to sure where the place you’re looking at is. Is it close to the the places that you would like to go? Are you going to have easy access to a grocery store and/or restaurants? You will want to check on all of that, unless you are going away to get away from everything.
- You know that you can edit photo, people do it all of the time these days. And a lot of people also know how to take pictures at the best angles. You will want to look at the pictures of the places that you are considering, but don’t go by just the photos.
- You will want to book your condo through a vacation rental service. Craiglist is known for having a lot of scams, so you will not want to book anything through them. Also you will want to go with people who accept credit cards. Those who want money transfers are also suspect.
- Most the good websites have places for both the host and the guest to leave reviews of the visit. You will want to read those reviews and kind of figure out what is going on with house. Read any complaints the hosts have and try not to do those things yourself.
