How do you make money with short-term rentals? Is it worth it? Is the market over saturated?

This is Queer Money episode #498, and today we’re joined by Jason Muth, owner of Prideaway Stays where he focuses on helping the LGBTQ+ find and rent out short-term rentals, especially in the Provincetown, MA area.

  • Jason’s conservative approach to growing a short-term rental portfolio
  • The hidden costs of getting a short-term rental business off the ground
  • Why it’s crucial to set clear expectations in your listing and then overdeliver
  • Strategies for mitigating the risk of ‘bad guests’ trashing your property
  • Jason’s advice on responding to negative reviews by taking the high road
