The Beauty of Short-Term Guest Suites
’Tis the season for hot cocoa, fires in the fireplace, twinkling lights and … family! Like winter, family is coming and this year more than ever and for longer periods of time. TSA has noted that travel is up more than seven percent than in 2017. And it’s not just Thanksgiving Day or weekend. There is a significant change in travel patterns –people are traveling from November 16 all the way through November 26. And December is looking very much the same for holiday travel.
What does all this mean for you as a landlord or apartment community manager? It means that more people will need places to stay this holiday season.
Guest suites are becoming a valuable amenity, especially over the holidays when it might be harder to fill those empty units. It’s a win-win situation – you can offer your residents a solution other than Airbnb’s or hotels to their family holiday housing and at the same time, generate revenue from inventory that is going vacant.
Here are four ways to market your guest suites for the best results for you and your existing residents.
