Buying with the End in Mind

We are all about starting fast without overthinking things. You don’t have to have everything dialed in and figured out before you dive into your first short-term rental property. But one thing you should have some idea of at the very beginning, is the end. That is, what do you do with that property once your STR journey is over? You never know where life is going to take you, so it’s smart to have these things in mind as things change over time. We’re going to explore what you need to know when you buy so that you can plan out a successful exit strategy. 




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Black Barn Ranch! This beautiful space is located in San Luis Obispo, CA and hosted by Sean and Lindsey. 

This “barndominium” is on their 2.5 acre property and it is SO gorgeous. Located on the second floor of their barn, this space has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and also has a kitchen, living room, dining space, and even has a deck for you to watch the sunrise and sunset!   

Sean and Lindsey have really upleveled the experience, there’s plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, it’s kid friendly (and they include some kid-friendly tips!) the design is impeccable, and they’ve done an amazing job making their space inviting!  

Check out Lindsey’s personal IG account @thepleatedpoppy! We love when our hosts use their personal accounts to promote their rentals.

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