Hard to believe that it has been more than 6 months since our world changed. No matter your political position the travel industry in general has been hit hard. The short-term rental (str) industry was not spared to its effects and I have empathy for tenants and landlord/owners alike. Both sides of this industry have been impacted; the tenant who lost his/her job and can’t afford to pay rent and the landlord who cannot pay his mortgage/bills/insurance/etc. There simply is no winner in this scenario.
So the question I will pose to you is what have you done to keep your units filled? It is important during this time to share what has worked for you with others. National Short Term Rental (NSTR) was designed to support and inform the STR industry and no matter what we are facing we need to support and stick together, especially at a time like this.
So let’s share our successes. Email email@example.com with your responses to the following questions:
- What has been your biggest barrier during Covid-19 and how did you overcome it?
- What have you done to keep your units full?
- What changes did you make to your unit/home that made the biggest difference to your guests?
I look forward to your responses and will post them on our website.
