Hello and welcome back to “Real Estate News You Can Use.”
What is the peak season? Now, that's an interesting question in Maryland because for example, in some locations, you do have peaks where you have certain times that you can charge extra. For example, Ocean City Maryland for example, your peak season is going to be during all those warm months and not during the winter months.
In Southern Maryland though, our peak months are going to be the similar time frame. The summer, the spring, this summer and a little bit into the fall but we have a unique situation in our area because we are not necessarily a vacation destination, but we do have a lot of military that come to the bases here and they come all year long and they come for short assignments and they come for long assignments.
So, in our case, with regard to vacation rentals, we have a useful time all year long that people are looking for this kind of a stay. It's not necessarily a vacation but it's a short-term rental so you don't have to worry so much in our area that you're going to have a big lull in the winter because if you market to that military contingent, you'll be able to find tenants all year long.
There you have it. Our vacation rental season really doesn't have a peak like you see in other vacation destinations. I hope you found this information useful and if you have more and more questions about vacation rentals or short-term rentals, please reach out to me.
