Is the weeklong rental dead?

Is the weeklong rental dead?
No, but it might be on the endangered species list. It's easy to think that increasing your nightly minimums is a good strategy to boost revenue. There is often an inverse relationship between minimums, occupancy and revenue. A solid understanding of the rental market in your area is key to finding the right balance between nightly minimums that will actually drive increased occupancy and minimums that will kill your reservations. I’ve increased my minimums. Where have all my rentals gone? Owners are often surprised when I tell them that the average stay in Breckenridge, Colorado is around 3.5 nights. This sounds low, but it’s actually within trends that we are seeing nationally.  There are some areas of the US that still thrive in the weekly rental market. One market that comes to mind is the Outer Banks In North Carolina. If you’ve ever rented a beach house there, you know that...

Summit hits record lodging rates for all seasons

Summit hits record lodging rates for all seasons
Both the summer and winter seasons are on-track to reach new highs, in Summit and across the western U.S. Thanks to a solid snow season, a relatively stable economy and a growing reputation, Summit broke records in lodging rates for the 2015-’16 ski season. According to statistics gathered by DestiMetrics , a Denver-based destination consulting service, Summit County saw a 1 percent increase in occupancy and an 8 percent increase in lodging rates, for total revenue growth of 9 percent. Compared with western U.S. resorts, Summit saw less occupancy growth, but more rate increases; the overall U.S. Mountain Market saw occupancy increase of 4.4 percent and rate increases of just under one percent. “Summit County gained more overall revenue,” DestiMetrics director of operations Ralf Garrison said. “But they did so largely by raising the price, not attracting more people.” With strong demand across the board, winter rates have traditionally been higher...
