Making the most of or using your property is always a matter of intuition and knowing how to seize the opportunities that the times and current legislation set. Nowadays, we often talk about the sharing economy and its potential as a new form of economy, like business turnover and above all, as a new lifestyle. It is precise “the sharing economy” that helps those who are thinking that their home can be used in alternative ways or to make use of it, especially during holiday periods.
This idea goes perfectly with the need to not engage in long-term contracts or not to renounce the availability of your apartment permanently. There are many alternatives to long-term rent, and we can see some of the most interesting ones together.
The short-term rent that is the tourist rent or “holiday homes” is the rental for limited periods of an apartment furnished on a weekly or daily basis. Many vacation homeowners rent their property for most of the year, at all times when they do not use it themselves; this allows perfect flexibility between use and income.
The income level is also an exciting aspect of this new type of rents. The tariff is in fact adherent to the tourist needs, that is, high or low season. This differentiation in rates offers income opportunities higher than traditional rent. It is also guaranteed by the fact that a minimum rental period can be foreseen in high season, to ensure that you maximize your income.
The fiscal aspect is not secondary. In fact, rented property in Delhi in the short term often means access to tax breaks or deductions for expenses. For this, it is necessary to be somewhat informed about all the novelties of the current legislation, and the advice to contact professionals is not to be taken for granted to make sure you are aware of all the news and all the typical features of the local legislation.
Finally, there is one final aspect to consider the advantages of this innovative type of rental. Since the short duration varies from a few days to a few weeks, the guests do not need to personalize the environment or to redecorate it, and this guarantees the owner from the bad management by the tenants of the apartments rented traditionally.
Although the advantages of property provided by real estate agents in Delhi may seem many, some short-term drawbacks must not be overlooked. To preserve its appeal on the tourist rental market, special attention must be paid to the quality of the environments that make up the property, guaranteeing a high level of cleaning and maintenance and these can also be significant expenses. The qualitative and aesthetic level becomes particularly essential when you are in contexts of stiff competition, such as in the historical center of a city, where the offer can far exceed the demand.
Therefore, although less demanding than a traditional tourist activity, the holiday home has particular characteristics of the sector and still requires a good deal of participation and attention from the owner. But as often happens in many entrepreneurial or para-entrepreneurial contexts, once the activity is started, the most is done!
