Short Term Rentals are Taking Off

Why Hotel?

The short-term rental game is gaining some steam. With more properties being developed, multifamily owners are wanting to take advantage of vacancies.

One company, in particular, has created a business model around short-term rentals; WhyHotel. This company will partner up with developers to lease up to 100 empty units. These empty units are then treated like hotel rooms with 24/7 service.
