Report On Current Olympic Accomodations Market Pricing
Posted By: David Chemago, Wednesday February 18, 2009
Our team at van2010rentals.com has just completed a survey of what homeowners are charging. We have gone to several sites and compiled an average rental price from several hundred properties.
From the results table below you can see what the average posting prices are for one, two, three, and four bedroom properties.
|$607 per night
||$985 per night
||$1,110 per night
||$1,239 per night
|$4,249 per wk
||$7,770 per wk
||$8,673 per wk
We have removed places that we consider to be grossly overcharging as they would throw off the average prices. Visitors are looking to rent homes not buy them.
That being said I believe the average posting prices are a little high for the average person regardless of where they are from, but there are lots of great deals out there.
My advice would be to keep your rental price realistic to increase your chances of renting out your property.
Why Rent? Vacation Rental Properties vs. Hotels
Posted By: David Chemago, Thursday September 11, 2008
There has been a shift over the last 10 years in what travelers are looking for when on vacation.
More and more vacationers throughout the world are looking for apartments or homes to rent as an alternative to traditional hotel rooms.
Space-if you are traveling with family or friends, an apartment, condo, or house can often accommodate more guests than a hotel room, as well as being a better value for your money.
Amenities- room service and eating out several times a day can be expensive. Having the option to cook meals with a full kitchen, and the ability to do laundry whenever you want will give you a feeling of living there.
Privacy- maids start early and have a lot of rooms to clean every day. Although usually friendly, they always seem to come at the worst times and you feel rushed to get out of their way.
Live Like a Local- whether staying in downtown Vancouver, Whistler, or in the suburbs you can live like a local. We can provide you with information on things to do, restaurants, and attractions in the area you are staying in. Our team grew up in Vancouver and has spent many seasons enjoying the slopes at Whistler, Blackcomb and Cypress Mountains.
Budget- there are rentals to fit every budget. Bed and Breakfasts, Executive Homes, Condos, and Rooms for rent are all available to satisfy the needs of single travelers and groups alike.
