Perfecting Your Mid-Term Rental Guest Screening, Payments, and Lease Agreements (Part 2)

Welcome to the Short-Term Rental Riches, in this second installment of our three-part series, we focus on the critical steps you need to take after receiving an inquiry for a longer guest stay.

In the first part of our series, we explored strategic listing placements and optimized copywriting to attract longer-term guests. Now, as inquiries start rolling in, we shift our focus to the meticulous process of running tenant background checks. The transition from guest to tenant varies across states, typically kicking in after 28 days. Now, it’s time to change how you manage things. Property owners need to handle longer stays with the same care as they do for long-term leases. Buckle up as we guide you through securing your property, from checking guest reviews to running comprehensive background checks.
