For you to be able to make money you must have a good management company that (not only cleans and manages) but will be active at getting you bookings. There are 3 or 4 short term communities in town that have a good reputation stablished and where vacationeers ask to stay by name. Buying a home in one of those communities will also help you get bookings. Then there is also the idea of doing your own supplemental advertising on the internet. Past of this, to break even you must have a 4 bedroom or bigger home, preferably with a heated pool, that has no rear neighbors. There are too many 3 bedrooms homes competing, a five bedroom or bigger will be even better.

If you are talking about 6 and 7 bedroom pool homes, then yes it is a great way to make a second income. Expect to pay $350,000 to $450,000.

If you are talking about cheap condos, then read this: http://www.trulia.com/blog/mark_lemenager/2011/08/vacation_c…

If you are really talking about Disneyland, then you are on the wrong side of the country.

Hi Phreda11,

If you're asking about purchasing a home in the Orlando area (Disney World) and renting out for Short Term rentals, I strongly suggest that you consider allowing a professional property managament company handle this for you. There is a lot of work involved with locating tenants, then keeping the home maintained. I can recommend a reputable company in the area for you.

If you've not purchased the property yet, that is something I can help you with. Please feel free to contact me directly carlrealtycenter2aol.com or 407-832-4650.
