Vacation Rental Investment and Management

Scottsdale is currently one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Types of Scottsdale Rental Investment Properties

There are two distinctly different types of Scottsdale vacation rentals: weekly rentals (or transient rentals), which can be rented for a week or less, and monthly rentals, which require a minimum 30-day occupancy. These differences have a direct impact on rental income and ROI. It is important for anyone investing in Scottsdale vacation rentals to understand the different licensing rules, restrictions, and how city, county, and state departments regulate each differently. Parsons Villas has a long history of managing both of these types of vacation rentals and has an excellent working relationship with governing agencies.

Transient Rentals as an Investment

Scottsdale transient rentals, most often referred to as weekly rentals, hold a special City of Scottsdale transient license which allows these properties to be rented weekly or nightly, in a way similar to a hotel. Scottsdale transient rentals must also have a Maricopa County business license and tourist tax number, and a State of Arizona sales tax certificate. The City of Scottsdale is not issuing any more transient rental licenses, giving properties that hold this license a higher value. Through regulation, Scottsdale has eliminated the possibility of a constant growing inventory of short-term vacation rentals found in other vacation areas, making them even more valuable.

Most of the weekly rentals are located closer to popular tourist areas, where visitors to Arizona would typically want to stay for a short vacation. Scottsdale transient rentals are in demand all year round, and ownership promises an impressive, immediate return on investment. These properties command increasing rental rates more in-line with hotels, along with appreciating Scottsdale real estate values. The outstanding cash-flow generated by weekly rentals, when managed by Parsons Villas, make this a unique investment opportunity. We will help you learn what to project for rate of ROI with a vacation rental that has a transient license.

Monthly Rentals as an Investment

Scottsdale monthly vacation rentals must be rented for at least a month and no more than six. The demand for monthly rentals is high throughout the year, not just in the high season winter months. Scottsdale is all about location, and monthly rentals offer an excellent investment performance and strong appreciation in value.

Many monthly rentals are located in quieter Scottsdale residential neighborhoods. Monthly vacation rentals are required to have a Maricopa County business license, tourist tax number, and a State of Arizona sales tax certificate. City of Scottsdale Code Compliance Department forbids and enforces renting monthly rentals for less than 30 days.

Absentee ownership of a monthly vacation rental can provide part-time Scottsdale residents the opportunity to use their rental income to offset the cost of property ownership. Monthly rental properties established in our exclusive inventory of homes provide a proven cash flow and can provide a great ROI for the amount of risk, and then provide a retirement home of your dreams.

Since inception, Parsons Villas has maintained an almost 100% retention rate for both customers and properties, continuing to manage properties even when they eventually sell to new owners. When it comes time to sell your vacation rental investment, we can step in and help maximize the return on the sale of your property.
