Evolve has worked with over 7,500 homeowners to make more than $300 million in rental income and we’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks for success along the way.

Here are three things smart owners do to get bookings, outperform the competition, and earn the most rental income:

1. Invest in the amenities you would want

Kevin Farmer from Tucson, Arizona, outfitted his properties with Keurigs, blenders, high-end bathtubs, and comfortable mattresses. These expenditures cost a little upfront, but guests appreciate those special touches and their satisfaction makes the expense well worth it.

2. Choose a property with a proven track record

Elizabeth and Jeffrey VonderHaar bought a property in Big Bear that had previously been used as a vacation rental. With the demand already there, they’ve been generating income to help cover the costs of their vacation home ever since.
