You don't indicate either your budget or your prefered style of housing - condo, townhouse, or single family pool home. Let's look at each.
Regardless of the type of unit, success in the short term rental business depends on how much work the owner is willing to do marketing the property on the internet and taking direct bookings. If you are looking for truly turnkey in which you do no work at all, then your best bet is a single family pool home, with townhomes
a distant second, and condos not worth much, if any, consideration.
Condos - You are not going to find competitive finance terms on a condo. Of almost 1000 vacation condo sales int he past year, a grand total of 19 were purhcased with a new mortgage. You can probably find the odd hard money lender willing to finance 50 to 60% of the purchase for rates in excess of 10%.
Townhomes - You might be able to find normal lenders for townhomes. Depends on the location. Of almost 600 sold in the past year about 100 had finance.
Single Family - Shouldn't be a problem to find finance. Of almost 1400 sold in the past year almost 500 had finance.
