The Comic-Con International Convention is being held in San Diego, CA from July 22-25, 2010. This annual convention draws over 100,000 attendees, many of whom are traveling in from out-of-state and international locations. When conventions such as this occur, the influx of travelers floods the hotel rental market and many attendees struggle to find lodging. This is where short-term rental by owner can become a particularly attractive option for homeowners.
Currently, CHBO has over 80 corporate rentals in the San Diego area, several of which would be ideal for those that will be attending this convention! Each of these featured properties is available for nightly and/or weekly rental, is centrally located and would provide easy access not only to the Comic-Con convention, but to some of the best dining, shopping and nightlife that San Diego has to offer.
For convention goers and property owners alike, renting a home, as opposed to a hotel, is an ideal, though often overlooked lodging option. While homeowners can make a nice profit from short-term rentals such as these, convention attendees not only stand to be more comfortable and get a better sense of the city and its offerings, but they could potentially save money over what they would be paying for prime hotel rates.
For property owners, it is a good idea to take a look at an events calendar for your local area. These can be found through your local chamber of commerce or online through city-managed websites. Once you find out about major events coming to your area, you can work to market your property to these short-term renters and also be able to forecast when a “down time” may be arriving so you can target more long term renters. Opportunities for Corporate Rental Owners are limitless if you are aware of your market and the local goings-on!
