An experienced San Diego landlord succeeds with short-term vacation rentals

If you’re a landlord with years of experience in long-term rentals, you know exactly how you want your properties managed.

You know who you want to clean them, where you want to promote them, and how you want to maintain them.

But what happens when you decide to branch out of long-term rentals and buy your first short-term vacation rental property? You will surely need a partner to help you with the aspects of vacation rental that are new to you – especially promoting your property and handling traveler inquiries.

However, you might not want to hand off the reins completely. When you have so much experience with rental properties, that personal touch is something you aren’t willing to sacrifice.

This was Julie Arnold’s situation before she partnered with Evolve.

As a successful landlord with 8 properties across Southern California, she didn’t want a property manager to come in and take over as she launched her first vacation rental property – a brand new house in San Diego’s Pacific Beach.

Julie wanted to manage the property personally. She planned to handle guest interactions herself. She already had connections with cleaning companies and maintenance services she trusted.

What she needed was a partner that could fill in the gaps. She didn’t want to have to spend her time managing the property listing and getting bookings on the calendar.

When Julie found Evolve, she knew it was the perfect fit for her needs. She wouldn’t have to assume the time-consuming task of booking her property OR give up control of her rental property.

Six months after joining the Evolve network, Julie has no regrets about the partnership. She started getting bookings as soon as her listing went live. And so far, she’s made an impressive $64,559 in just 6 months.
