Travelers Who Might Rent Your Vacation Home and How to Bring Them In

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Arizona Living Realty

Fall is a great time to take a vacation, especially in resort communities such as Lake Havasu City.  Visiting old friends and taking a break from the cold winter weather in other parts of the country may make your vacation home the perfect spot for travelers. 

There is an abundance of possibilities for booking your home this fall. And it's important to know what might interest travelers who are interested in renting your vacation home.  Therefore, I have some tips that will help bring them in. 

Warm Weather Lovers  

If your vacation property is located in a warmer climate, then yours may be just the place for people that search for warmer winds.  Be sure to include outdoor activities available to entice people to put on their shorts one last time before winter. 

Outdoorsman 

Entice hunters and fishermen as well as families with information about best times for deer hunting, fly fishing etc,.  Include information for families about hiking and back packing for others to do while Dad's hunting or fishing. 

SemiLlocals 

Many people with their budget in mind look for short trips closer to home.  Include in your posting that a long weekend is the perfect get away.  Fall breaks from schools or Columbus Day provides extra vacation time for families as well.  Advertise with that in mind for travelers within driving distance.  Post pictures of animals vacationers may see on or near your property. 

Bargain Seekers 

Bargain hunters can be frustrating during your peak season.  Let them know you might be willing to entertain their offers once the off-season rolls around.

Promote your available fall weeks for those deal-seeking inquiries.   Bargain hunters might take what they can get. 

Treasure Hunters 

Shopping for some is the highlight of their trip.  Fall is prime for antique auction season and shopping.  In your home's fall postings, include information about shopping locations and auctions and any Christmas expos coming to the area.  

Empty-Nesters

Parents will take advantage of their new-found freedom and extra spending money by traveling.  Not being restricted to school time anymore, these couples may be more inclined to travel during off-season to avoid the crowds.   Be sure to include attractions to your town during these times. 

Honeymooners 

June weddings aren't for everyone.  Focus on couples planning a fall wedding and promote your home as the perfect honeymoon place.  Add romance to your ads by including photos of candles, rose petals, the tub filled with bubbles and champagne.  

Event Seekers  

Think of local events to promote your vacation home.  List festivals and concerts or a trip to the pumpkin patch with hayrides.  Be sure to include all events in your listing-you never know what will attract renters. 

Pet Lovers 

For travelers that can't bear to leave their pets behind, including them in your vacation package may broaden your reach. 

Retreat Planners  

Employers try to boost employee morale by heading outside.  A mix of brainstorming sessions and rounds of golf can do wonders for businesses.  Sometimes professionals need time away from the bustle of the office to get inspired.  Focus your posting on the quietness of your home and the availability of work space for those working vacationers. 

Guy or Girl Getaway Travelers 

Guys and girls of all ages need to get away from home and from each other.  Feature local attractions that would appeal to groups like fishing, spas, and golfing.  Think about father/son, mother/daughter getaways, too.
