Leveraging Local Expertise to Successfully Run Your Rental Business with Victoria Hawley

Running multiple rental properties can be stressful… but managing them across multiple states? It’s still totally doable!

Victoria is a Superhost who has been at it for over a year in her home city of Columbus, Ohio, and she and her husband recently expanded their hosting business to Nashville, Tennessee. Hosting has allowed her to blend her passion for real estate, hospitality, project management, and design into one industry while creating financial freedom for her and her family and enabling them to practice radical generosity.

In this episode, listeners will hear a firsthand experience of what it’s like owning short-term rentals across multiple states and working with multiple management teams and vendors. We’ll discuss why it’s critical to have a boots on the ground management team that are experts in the area, how to maximize your property’s performance, as well as the local short-term rental laws and regulations! We’ll also discuss why it’s important to discuss your goals with your management company(s) to ensure all parties are aligned.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Mouse House Rentals!

We love the name… but we love the name more after we read their story! We were recently in San Antonio for a Vacation Rentals Management Association Conference (stay tuned for an episode about that), so we wanted to give them some love!

We have a whole section in our Hosting Business Mastery Method about knowing your WHY. Why do you host? Mouse House has their why completely nailed down in one of their posts, and it was hard for us not to get choked up reading it. Head over to their page and read it and we guarantee it will make you want to stay with them.

We LOVE how they have shared their why and we encourage you to do the same. Don’t be afraid to share your story and share why you host with your guests! If you don’t have your why, this industry can be very, very difficult. And when things go wrong with your rental, coming back to your why will keep you grounded and motivated to keep pushing forward.

What’s your why? Share it with us!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
