Rentinptown, Renter in Provincetown, MA

In a good west end location what rental asking price per week will get you a few off season reservations for a recently renovated 2 bedroom unit?

Asked by Rentinptown, Provincetown, MA Sun Nov 28, 2010

The unit rents for roughly $1,700 in the high season. What should I ask in the off-season to get a few weeks rented?

Todd got it right. Check out rentals on cyberrental or homeaway other sites and compare it to yours.
Be ready to cut a deal.

That's a tough one without seeing the place and knowing the specifics. Your best bet would be to go to one of the big rental sites like cyberrentals.com or homeaway.com and see what other similar properties are renting for. In general, weeks into the fall and over holidays (Thanksgiving, New Years, Valentines) can be decent rental weeks. You may be able to get half or more of summer rates for some of those weeks. In general, winter month demand is pretty low for rentals. Things that help rent your place in the winter include water views, fireplaces and short walks to town. One other option is to look for an off season renter to rent your place for the off season if you have no plans to use it. You may not get as much money but you have the benefit of someone watching your place over the winter and paying the utilities.
