Test Tuesdays

Stay tuned for an upcoming edition of Test Tuesdays. Below you can view the last Test Tuesdays’ Question & Answer.


Answer Explained Below

Step 1 – Fantastic Finds: You have found a few properties in your price range that you feel would make awesome vacation rentals. Which of the below should be excluded from your search? 


  1. A 4 bedroom house with a driveway for 2 cars on the cul-de-sac
  2. A house on the main street between 2 other beautiful homes with one having a swing set in the backyard
  3. A house on the main street near other beautiful homes with one having a basketball hoop in the driveway
  4. All of the above


Fantastic Finds, Step 1 of Master of Vacation Rentals: 10 STEPS TO HOSTING SUCCESS explains that in most cases family neighborhoods and vacation rentals do not mix with destination travelers on vacation.

Choices B and C should be excluded and give clues that the houses are in family neighborhoods and thus should be exclude from consideration. Quiet family neighborhoods are not a good choice for potentially noisy vacation rental guests. Stick to neighborhoods with my second or vacation homes.

Choice A should be excluded because as 4 bedroom home would likely have up to 4 couples staying and driving their own cars. If there are spaces for 2 cars in the driveway, where do the other 2 cars go? Cul-de-sac generally have few if any spots. This parking scenario is not good. Noise and parking are the enemies of neighbors. Be considerate and don’t buy a place that will cause problems with full-time residents.
