How to maximise rent in the age of Airbnb

It’s the new property dream – finding a home away from home in paradise that will generate sky-high returns from short-term rentals.

Australia’s short-term rental sector is booming with an increasing number of property owners and investors offering up properties to vacationers across the nation. Currently New South Wales generates the highest short-term rental revenue followed by Victoria and Queensland but according to Your Investment Property magazine and short-term rental specialist MadeComfy, it’s the Sunshine State that is the sweet spot for growth as it caters to a real mix of both holidaymakers and corporates.

On some occasions corporate tenants will secure 30 to 80-day bookings. MadeComfy’s Calum Walters explains to Your Investment Property: “They are wanting to have a home base for a longer period of time, rather than a traditional holiday rental.”

It’s all about selecting the right area. For example, two-bedroom apartments in South Brisbane listed as short-term rentals could reap annual incomes $16,000 higher than long-term rentals. Properties in the Brisbane CBD and Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast also present good opportunities for property owners looking at a short-term rental strategy.

More information on how to maximise rents through short-term rentals is available in the latest issue of Your Investment Property on sale now. The issue also features in-depth analysis of potential changes to negative gearing; coverage of the national Property Investor Awards which highlight the businesses and individuals who are achieving the best outcomes for their investor clients; and profiles of successful investors. Your Investment Property is on sale at leading newsagents and Coles supermarkets and online at www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au/
