Short-Term Rentals are an Emotional AND Logical Investment

While working for Citi Bank doing financial research and analytics four years ago, Kenny purchased his first short term rental. After deciding to grow his STR portfolio, he found it difficult to identify the best STR markets based on his budget.

He founded STR Insights in 2021 as a tool to help investors find their best STR markets. He now has 6 STR’s throughout New York. Kenny helps investors find the best STR markets using data and unique finding strategies based on their circumstances.

It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Yellowood Farm😍

These hosts are right in our backyard, how have we not met already? These designers-gone-farmers working on yard-turned-farm. They have axe and tool restoration, they have a farm, and we totally want to stay.

Check out their feed and get ready to feel inspired! This is THE spot. This family had a dream and they made it happen. It’s a renovated 1950s home situated alongside a small family farm where fresh flowers and free range eggs await! Excellent use of wallpaper too 😉

They have mapped out all the areas of landscaping in their property right in their listing, which is so awesome. Far enough out of the city limits but still has some amazing stargazing, and it’s just a short walk from taverns and local shops.

They have really leveraged who they are as humans and what they love to do, and they’ve translated that into their brand. If you’re ever confused about how to brand your rental, look no further than YOU!

Cori, we wanna come hang out with you!

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.
