Should you invest in Airbnb, VRBO, and other short term rentals in the space coast, Brevard county Florida, or should you go somewhere else?
Location is one of the most important aspects when it comes down to having a short-term vacation rental.
Brevard county, is a hidden gem for some real estate investors, but is it the place for Airbnb? Afterall is said and done, and you're all in, are you going to be making serious life-changing money or is it best to go somewhere else?
Homes that offer experiences for the occupants should be prioritized. Location. Location. Location. Examples of an "experience":
Homes with bars built into them
Creative interior design homes that really provide interactive experiences for the guests [similar to that of a themed home]
Finally, Mansions. Seriously though who doesn't like a good mansion party and event house?
I guess, in Brevard County, Florida size really does matter.
12-months of Stats
Statistically speaking the average for the entire county within the past 12-months Nov20-Nov21 is roughly $189/night. That's for all bed counts and all occupancies.

Not too shabby, but what really matters is the occupational rate.
