This will add ambiance when a guest is staying in your home as well as when they are booking online. Photos are key in the decision making process. Be sure your home looks inviting.

Upgrade Your Appliances & Electronics

Guests have high expectations when it comes to appliances and electronics. They want the same quality that they have at home or better. Black Friday is the perfect time to evaluate and decide if it is time for an upgrade. Additionally, vacation rental homes see more wear and tear. You can expect to replace items more often than in a primary residence. We recommend choosing mid-grade options in terms of quality/price.

Here are some great ways to save on appliances and electronics:

Home Depot – Savings on Appliances, Paint and Hardware

Lowes – Up to 40% Off Appliances and More

Target – Special Pricing in Every Department
