Wanna know how to clean luxury vinyl plank flooring also known as LVP? It's really easy if you have the right tools and techniques. You can use a luxury vinyl floor cleaner after you dust mop, or you can use a pre-wet microfiber mop head on your laminate flooring with a simple soap like Sal Suds or dish soap. The thing to be careful of is machines that will scratch the floor or leave too much water on the floor. And a big key to vinyl floor care is to stay away from steam mops as the steam can warp the seams where the vinyl planks groove together.

Real Estate 2022 Predictions, Inflation, and Home Values. How does a person actually make predictions about the housing market?  Most importantly how will the historic changes in the overall economy (and inflation) affect you and your real estate business? There are 6 major factors that affect the Housing Market predictions: Demand Supply, also known as Inventory Affordability Interest rates Enthusiasm for real estate, (the American Dream) is here to stay. Inflation and appreciation, mixed together but inflation prevailed.  Definitely not ‘transitory'. Let's circle back to the top of the list and understand each piece as relates to today's market conditions: Important: 2022 Top Agent Success Secrets [Revealed]: New FREE Real Estate Coaching Web Event, Revealing 17 Surprising Secrets Of The Top 100 $ Millionaire Agents.

You Will Soon Know How To Become One of the 1000s of Agents Making HUGE Money Who Never Thought They Could. https://timandjulieharris.com/webinar-reservation.html How do supply and demand relate to pricing? Factor #1:  DEMAND simply means: the number of people who want to buy a house. 1-investors, big, small, and institutional. 2-millennials at peak home-buying age: early to mid-'30s. 3-family formation: growing families.  This is known as ‘fundamental demand'. 4-huge amount of people who are coming up under the 30-somethings. Thus, demand is both high and stable.   When there is high demand, prices go up.  There's not enough to go around, so the market is competitive, favoring sellers.  This is how the market has been since about 2010 when the enthusiasm heated back up, rates started to consistently fall and scarcity of listings became a theme. When there is low demand, prices stay stagnant or sometimes fall.  This is when there is one buyer for each listing (balanced) or fewer buyers than listings (a buyer's market).  This is when the buyers have more control. Did Covid spike demand?  Definitely.  However, the Mortgage Banker's Association shows increasing demand within the past 5 years, even without Covid. Covid made for some ups and downs but demand has returned to what it would have been without Covid, based on previous charts and graphs of demand trends.  Normal demand, post-Covid means that demand is staying stable with some additional increase. The housing market will continue to appreciate as a result. Factor #2:  Supply, or :  INVENTORY: 4-5 million homes short of demonstrated demand.  Inventory has a long way to go. Why is inventory so low?? 1). Housing starts (# of homes being built).  Was huge until the recession/housing crash.  Builders were building more than the demand was. 2)  Housing Crash: builders simply quit building…abruptly, about 2009/2010. 3). We are nowhere near the ‘speculative building' we saw before the housing crisis. 4). Continuing at this rate, it could take a decade to make up for the missing 4-5 million homes. Could construction accelerate? Maybe, but then it's ‘only' 5-8 years to get there. 5). Some estimate that 30% of the shortage can be attributed to VRBO, HomeAway, Airbnb, and other short-term rental sites.  Those possibilities didn't exist until fairly recently, certainly not at the scale of today.  Empty nester/baby boomers are keeping their homes and turning them into rentals in the most popular markets.  Less inventory as a result.

Wanna know how to remove cobwebs from high ceilings? We use the Doca Pole https://amzn.to/3wLsD90 with an artichoke-looking brush. It's actually part of a kit that is designed just for tall areas like ceiling fans, entry windows, and ledges. You can use the wall duster or recessed light bulb attachments for other deep cleaning projects as well but today I'll show you why I prefer and recommend this brand to all the cleaning companies I consult for. Note: There are some cheap knock-off versions of this on Amazon - and it will be tempting to pay half the price for what seems to be the same thing. I really don't care which one you buy but please know that the brackets on other models that hold the extension pole in place often don't stay. So while you are trying to clean using a competitor brand, the pole will slide back into itself and you'll get really mad at yourself for wasting your money. Note 2: I also recommend the 24 ft pole over the 18 ft. pole. You can still only use it for 18ft if that is all you need. But if you ever go outside to extend the pole with your smartphone on the end as a camera looking for a leak in your roof - you'll wish you had the 24 ft pole. (The 30 ft gets a little hard to manage when fully extended at 30 ft.) *** HOW TO REMOVE COBWEBS CHAPTERS *** 0:00 - Why are there cobwebs in my house? 0:27 - Where do cobwebs come from? 0:49 - Why do spiders abandon their webs? 1:10 - Why Angela Brown, the House Cleaning Guru uses the Doca Pole 1:56 - The lightweight durable extension pole reduces arm fatigue 2:07 - The resin wheel adjusts the head in any angle 2:42 - How to wash the cobwebs out of the reusable brush 3:11 - Ask your house cleaner if they offer this service.

Avery specializes in connecting investors with short term rentals with the highest ROI potential and then training them to manage their short term rental from their smart phone from anywhere in the world. In this episode, Avery tells us about short-term rental strategy, hot markets, returns, and what you should know about short-term rentals in contrast to long-term rentals.     https://theshorttermshop.com/  --- Transcript Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content. The Remote Real Estate Investor podcast is for informational purposes only, and is not intended as investment advice. The views, opinions and strategies of both the hosts and the guests are their own and should not be considered as guidance from Roofstock. Make sure to always run your own numbers, make your own independent decisions and seek investment advice from licensed professionals.   Michael: What's up everyone? Welcome to another episode of The Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today I'm joined by Avery Carl, distinguished author, speaker, investor, agent, mortgage broker, she does it all and she's going to be talking to us today about things you need to be aware of when looking for short term rentals. So let's get right into it.   Avery Carl, thank you so much for taking the time to hang out with me today. I really appreciate you coming on.   Avery: Thank you so much for having me.   Michael: No my pleasure. So I think a lot of our listeners probably already know who you are. You've got quite a bit of notoriety behind you. But for anyone who's not familiar, can you give us a 32nd elevator speech on who you are, where you're come from and what it is you're doing real estate?   Avery: Yes, yes. So my name is Avery Carl, I am the author of Short Term Rental Long Term Wealth of about investing in short term rental properties. I'm a real estate investor, I own 100 doors, but eight of them are short term rentals. And I was able to scale from zero to 100 doors over the course of about five years with a starting salary of $37,000 a year. Because I invested mostly in short terms at the beginning of my portfolio. So since those cash flows so much heavier than long term, I was able to scale much more quickly than if I'd started with traditional long terms.   I also own the Short Term Shop, which is a real estate agency that focuses exclusively on working with short term rental investors where not only do we act as the real estate agents to help them purchase their property. We also teach them everything they need to know about managing their property remotely. We help them get it all set up on the the listing sites and teach them the ropes of remote self management. We've helped about 4500 families, build some generational wealth through real estate investing there. And then I also, own co own The Mortgage Shop, which is basically the mortgage counterpart of the short term shop, we focus mostly on short term rental investors there as well.   Michael: Oh, that's awesome. So you were doing short term rentals before it was cool. It sounds like   Avery: Yeah, oh, just slightly before. Michael: That's awesome. And so what is it, you think that people need to know if they're just getting started in the short term rental business?   Avery: So I think the main thing to know is that it's you don't have to live in the city or even drivable to the city where you're investing, you can't always live in the best place to invest. So getting comfortable with long distance real estate investing, can make sure that you are able to make the most lucrative investment in short term rentals.   Michael: That makes total sense. And what a place to have you on The Remote Real Estate Investor. It's perfect. So how do you evaluate what a short term rental market looks like? Because doing the long term thing, I think is relatively easy. I can go on Zillow, I can go on property manager websites and see okay, what is the rent, the monthly rent versus what are my expenses ballpark? And what is the price? So what is it that you're looking for in a short term rental?   Avery: I'll start by saying there's not necessarily a black and white right or wrong way to do it. There's a certain way that I do it. But there are three types of markets that you can invest in short term rentals. The first one is the Metro market. So like Nashville, Austin, New York, places like that. The second is the big fly-to I call it fly-to vacation rental markets. So these are, these are the markets that people are like saving up all year to take a big vacation to like flying to Aspen flying to Hawaii, places like that.   Michael: Okay. Avery: And then the third type, which is the type that I focus on exclusively with myself and my clients, is the regional drivable vacation rental market. So these are areas that the majority of people that travel to them are traveling between five and eight hours by car like the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, Panama City Beach, Florida, Big Bear in California, places like that, where people aren't necessarily taking these big, expensive vacations, they're really affordable, and they're really accessible. So that's the type of market that I focus on.   Michael: That makes sense. And I actually just bought my first vacation rental out in the Smokies. And I'm very excited to hear all the all the big news about it.   Avery: Awesome.   Michael: Yeah. So curious to know when I think one of the biggest hurdles or biggest risks that people see with short term rentals is changing jurisdictions, or jurisdictions changing their laws or ordinances. And so what's something that people can do to combat that or to be ahead of that curve when when looking at short term rental markets?   Avery: So choosing the market is really going to be your biggest the biggest thing to get through in terms of getting past that. So I used to have an office in Nashville where we sold short term rentals, I shut it down because Nashville is really really volatile in terms of short term rental regulations. So that's why I focus on the regional drivable vacation rental markets because they're typically areas like take the Smokies, for example. People have been coming to this monkey since the 60s and 70s and staying in cabins rather than hotels. Also, Destin, Florida where I live right now, I'm there where I'm actually reading a really nerdy book about the history of this area.   MIchael: Awesome.   Avery: And there were actually vacation rentals that people rented here in the 20s before they actually even had electricity out here. So these are areas I focus on areas that short term rentals are not a new thing. As of the inception, inception of Airbnb focused on areas that people have been staying in condos, beach houses, cabins in the mountains since well before Airbnb existed. So you run into the problems with the changing of jurisdictions and things like that. It mostly in Metro markets, it does happen in vacation markets as well. But it's mostly Metro markets or areas where people have historically stayed in hotels like Nashville, for example. There were not short term rentals or were not vacation rentals until Airbnb came along. Everybody who came to Nashville up until mid 2000 stayed in hotels, there's also a lot of primary residents because there's a lot of industry outside of tourism in Nashville. So there's a lot of jobs, there's a lot of primary residence.   So the, when, Airbnb came along, and investors started realizing how much money they can make in Metro markets. You know, obviously, a lot of investors moved in, started taking market share away from the hotels started making primary homeowners angry because they're moving into what was previously a quiet neighborhood where people are trying to raise their kids opening up Airbnbs, Nashville is like, you know, the bachelorette party capital of the world, you can see why you might not want that happening next door to where you're trying to raise your kids.   So it's the hotel presence and primary owners, primary residents that kind of come together to make anti short term rental regulations happen so that we stick to those markets where the cities and counties figured this out a long time ago figured out how to monetize it a long time ago. This is the way that it's always been. And the cities and counties are just way too dependent on the income from short term rentals financially to ever really regulate against them.   Michael: That makes so much sense. I love it. So, so something that I like a personal take that I've had on short term rentals is I've always said, Well, I'll invest in a short term rental if it also makes sense as a long term rental because I'm scared of the ordinance or law changing, but it sounds like for you because you've really done your homework. That's not a concern that you have. Is that fair to say?   Avery: Yeah, yeah. So and that's kind of, you know, a pro and a con of vacation markets versus Metro markets as Metro markets, you could convert to a long term, probably if the numbers make sense. But in like in the Smokies or in Destin, or any of our other markets that we that we operate in, there are more short term rentals. And there are people who actually live in those areas, because it's so heavily dependent on tourism, that if something came along and like wiped out all the short term rentals, you probably would not be able to convert to a long term just because there there's not enough people to meet that.   But again, that's these areas have been through decades and decades of economic ups and downs. So they're still tourists coming and they're coming heavy. So, you know, we, we feel pretty confident about it. And then if there was anything that was going to come along and sweep away all the short term rentals, it would have been a global pandemic. And it actually had the opposite effect. So I think we're pretty good. We're feeling pretty good about it.   Michael: Awesome. And you took the words right out of my mouth, I was gonna ask how was it for you? Because you've been involved in this over five years. So through through the pandemic, what did you see in your short term rentals during that time?   Avery: Sure. So short term rentals still, as of 2020, being a little bit of an of a new asset class, when COVID came along. And we had at the time that we had five short term rentals and maybe like 20 or 30 long terms, when COVID happened, we thought, Oh, crap, they're the short term. They're the apartment building investors were right. This is like an early adopter crowd. Right? Great. Well, at least we have our long terms because if somehow if this kills the short terms, we at least have long term. Well, actually, it was the opposite.   So you know, we sat on the couch and watch Tiger King for two weeks and open back then the doors got blown off. We we were getting higher prices per night than we've ever seen. We still are. All of our income has increased in all the markets we invest in across the board, but actually the opposite of what we thought was gonna happen. happen, so we didn't have to worry about the short terms. They're doing great better than they ever have. But we had to worry about our long terms because of the eviction moratorium. So, luckily, we only had one eviction and that person was a problem well before COVID. So we actually came out our entire portfolio came out just fine. Really no change on the long term front, but the short term is just skyrocketed.   Michael: I'm glad to hear it. I had a similar experience with the long terms and I was so thankful for it. So NACA continues. So Avery I'm curious and let me know if it's market dependent. And we can talk kind of market specifics, but I'm curious to know what type of property condo townhome apartment single family cabin do you target for your short term rentals?   Avery: I personally do only single families. Condos work really, really well in beach markets. Nothing wrong with condos. I just prefer single families. Condos don't work so well. In mountain markets. Typically, the tourists and mountain markets are more interested in staying in cabins. I don't I know a lot of people are kind of trying to get into the multifamily short term rental thing to me that's like, that's a hotel guys that's been already done. Like they're like, Oh, we're gonna do multifamily short term rentals. Nobody's ever done this before.   Michael: I'm a genius. Yeah.   Avery: So we stick to this to single families, we have Multis for it in our long term portfolio that we stick to single families mostly.   Michael: Okay, awesome. And so here's like a massive dichotomy between the long term in the short term market, in the long term, there's a price point for single family, which that's not going to cash flow, because you're rents just not going to keep up versus your long, you seem your short term. Does that occur? I mean, is there a spread at which Yeah, I'm just paying too much money for the purchase, that the rental income is not going to support it? Or does that not exist?   Avery: Yeah, sure, there's definitely a limit. But the thing about short terms is like it's, they're more difficult to analyze, because it's always a range of what a property will be able to do. Whereas in long term, it's like, this is the rent, this is going to be the rent all year. And unless you go in and get the property and do all this updates, that's what it's going to be we're short term, that's always kind of a range, because you know, a week, in the second week of February, you're gonna be making way less money than the second week of July. So it just kind of depends.   And then also, there's a range of the income that can make really just based on how you manage the property. So I mean, for example, even if two people own the exact same property right next door to each other long term rentals, they're making the same no matter what short term, even if they manage everything exactly the same. But one person has a two night minimum night stay, and the other person has a five night minimum night stay, the two night minimum night stay person is gonna make more money because they have less poles in their calendar that 1-2-3 and four days long. So even just little tweaks like that can make a difference. Although there there does come a point that like a two bedroom, the most a two bedroom is ever going to make is here. And if the purchase price is here, then it doesn't make sense. So you just have to get a lot of different data points for your analysis.   Michael: Yeah, makes total sense. And so to that end, how do you recommend folks evaluate the properties of potential income from an expense perspective? Because that's something I've seen is massively different than your long term as well. So what do you recommend to folks?   Avery: So I recommend there's a there's several different places you can get data for what for the short term rental performance air DNA is one of them, it's not perfect, it's decent, good enough. Rabbu is another one, Rabbu has some pretty good data. Price Labs, which is actually a pricing manager that you would buy, when you buy a short term rental, you get a subscription to this to help you price your property, it has a function called the market dashboards, which will give you a pretty good data on properties in that market. So I recommend getting data from two or three different sources.   And then as far as expenses and things like that. So in conjunction with looking at the number, numerical data, and the short term shop we read, we preach something called the enemy method, which is where you go in on Airbnb and VRBO. Zoom in on the neighborhood that you're interested in buying in and look at your enemies or your neighbors enemies just kind of tongue in cheek. But then there's a few things you're looking for when you do the enemy method. So a there there are things that the numbers in the data can't tell you like the intangible reasons that the properties are performing the way that they are.   So you're going in, you're looking for outliers, like you know, if you've got a four bedroom that you're looking at, and next door is like a four bedroom dump with terrible pictures, and the host never responds. So it's like way, way, way down on the search results and never get seen. Well that's going to drag the data down, you're going to be able to do better than that one obviously.   Or conversely, if next door is another four bedroom that is just like the craziest four bedroom anybody's ever seen. And it's like celebrities rolling in and out in there and you're like making they're charging a million bucks a night to get to meet these celebrities at your house. Well that's gonna drag the data the other direction. So you're looking for that you're also looking for what you your enemy's cleaning fees are because that's gonna be a big one for you.   And then the rest of it is very similar to as if you were purchasing the house for a primary home like in terms of internet costs, utility costs, things like that, I found that my maintenance costs in short term are less than in my long term rentals, they're more like 1% of my income. Just because you have a cleaner in there who's professionally cleaning two, sometimes three times a week, so nothing ever really falls into that much disrepair if your cleaner is doing their job and you know, letting you know, stuffs happening. Whereas my long terms, you know, they're doing God knows what in there all year, maybe two years, maybe three years, however long they say. And when they when they move out. i   Michael: That's when you find out about it.   Avery: Yeah, paint carpet cabinets, the whole thing.   Michael: Yeah. Okay, that makes a ton of sense. I want to shift gears a little bit here and talk about a topic that's very near and dear to my heart, which is insurance. And so how do you insure these things? Because it's this kind of unique thing that I feel like a lot of insurance companies really haven't wrap their heads around yet.   Avery: Yeah, so you definitely want to get short term rentals, specific Insurance Proper is the biggest name in that space. They're also the most expensive, but they do have pretty comprehensive coverage, like all the way down to covering loss income, if you get bedbugs. Um, some insurance companies are kind of catching on and adding short term rental riders that you can add on. You also want to or I recommend any way of getting a commercial umbrella policy, in addition to short term rental specific, just to make sure that you're totally covered. And I get this question a lot because Airbnb and VRBO do offer a million dollars worth of liability coverage, when you sign up with them. And a lot of people are like, do I need insurance? In addition to that, yes, 100,000% Do not rely only on what Airbnb and VRBO provide, because their goal is to not have to pay bat. So better to be over insured than under. So definitely make sure that you're getting STR specific and a commercial umbrella.   Michael: Okay. And so kind of in that vein, if someone's owning the short term rentals in their personal name, do you think an umbrella a commercial umbrella is still appropriate? Or could they just add it on to their maybe existing Personal Umbrella?   Avery: You could it just kind of depends on your entire financial picture. And really just kind of a number of things. So it's hard to answer. But I would recommend just everything you can get get it no better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.   Michael: No, I'm right there with you. And it's one of those things like you're only gonna know how much you really needed after a loss or after a claim. And by then it's a little bit too late. So I'm with you. 100%. All right.   And then. So shifting gears here again, how do you purchase these things, and it's so perfect that you you own the mortgage shop. And so, because there are short term lenders out there, but I feel like they're kind of few and far between and if you start talking with your traditional lenders about I'm doing short term rentals, like I don't know, so what are some things that people should be looking for? And what are some products that the mortgage shop offers that people might be able to take advantage of.   Avery: So we have three main products that most people use, a lot of people use that 10% down vacation home loan, that's a conventional product, there are rules that you want to make sure that you are following in regards to doing that meaning you do have to use the property for I think it's about two weeks a year. You are there's nothing nothing out there prohibiting you from renting it on Airbnb and VRBO the rest of the year when you're not using it, but you you know, what you don't want to be doing is skirting the rules and like you know, trying to like syndicate with a bunch of people using 10% downs and like taking equity there and all that don't skirt the rules because you're going to get the product taken away from all of us.   Michael: Don't ruin it for everyone.   Avery: Yeah, if any has caught on to people abusing that for buying like I saw somebody in a Facebook group the other day that was like yeah, that second home loans awesome. I've got two on the same street as me that are both second homes and like that, there's none like they totally like lied, they had to have lied to their loan officer to even get that because one of the main things is it has to be there's not a specific mileage amount that it has to be away from your primary, but a lot of lenders use like 50 miles or 65 miles because it has to make sense you're clearly not vacationing and you so that part that's the kind of thing that will get it taken away from from everyone but if you want to buy a vacation home that you're gonna use for two weeks out of the year and rent it the rest of the year, you can totally do that for 10% down so a lot of people do that.   We also have a 15% down investment mortgage, let me sorry, investment mortgage investment loan that is also conventional. So if you just want to use this is a pure investment 15% down you don't have to worry about all the second home rules you can just do it that goes up to the jumbo limit which I think is like a 725 ish or 750 purchase price on Have a look. And then the biggest one that people have been using lately, is what's called a DSCR loan. So that's a debt service coverage ratio loan, it's kind of a mix between a portfolio and a commercial loan. So it's not conventional. So the interest rates going to be a little bit higher, it is 20% down, but you can close it right in your LLC, it doesn't take into account any of your income or debt or debt to income ratio, all that it counts on to qualify is will the property make the same amount as what the mortgage payment will be on a one to one ratio.   So if the mortgage payment is 2000 bucks a month, all we need to see is that the property will make 2000 bucks a month in income, and then you qualify. So that's a really, really great one, especially for people who maybe have switched from w two income to 1099 income. And they don't have two years to show yet. Or maybe you're out of conventional lows, because you can only have 10. Or maybe you have the downpayment, but your debt to income is a little wonky. So a lot of people are using that DSCR loan just because you can drop it right in your LLC, you can have unlimited finance properties, and it's just a lot easier to deal with and not having to qualify based on your own income.   Michael: Yeah, that's amazing. And so when you say a one to one ratio for the mortgage payment, are you talking principal interest, taxes and insurance as your mortgage payment are truly just principal and interest?   Avery: Principal interest taxes in an insurance? So, um, the way that it works? Like I mean, you wouldn't be buying a property that wouldn't make at the very least, that each month,   Michael: I should hope not,   Avery: Because it's not a good investment. So I've actually had never seen one not go through unless you're buying a really weird remote area where no one has ever short term or long term rented before, then that would be probably a gray area, but in the big vacation markets and Metro markets and things like that. I've never seen one not, you know, not go through.   Michael: Awesome. What a cool product. That's great. And Avery, I'm curious to know, from your experience, where do you most new short term investors go wrong? Where do you where do you seeing them then botch themselves?   Avery: Analysis paralysis, just like anything just like any asset class, all real estate investing? The number one thing that stops people from getting started is analysis, paralysis, and short term is no different.   Michael: Oh, that's great. That's great. And so I'm just curious to know, as well, you mentioned some of the markets that you're currently investing in, and you've got investors and both personal properties. Where is the new hot place.   Avery: Um, so our newest market that we've opened an office in that I'm really excited about, probably the next place that I'm going to buy a short term rental, probably next year is the Crystal Beach, Texas market. It's right, right next door to Galveston, and the returns there are actually higher than the Smokies, which up until now has been our highest return market. It's also one of the most expensive markets, you know, in the Smokies, it's going to be a million dollars for a five bedroom maybe a little bit more. And to get a beach front or like second to your back beach property, you can get a five bedroom like a nice, pretty new five bedroom new construction for like the 700 range.   Michael: Wow.   Avery: So and make almost the same income as the Smokies. So don't quote me on that it's a case by case basis, obviously. But across the board the returns, they're really, really exciting.   Michael: Oh, that's amazing. And when you say returns are high, what are we talking in terms of percentage cash on cash?   Avery: So it depends on what kind of loan you do. Because obviously, if you do a 10%, down vacation how long your cash on cash can be twice the amount of what it would be, if it's 20%. But I mean, you're looking at 30%, like without issue. So depending it depends on what kind of loan you get. But even with a 20% down, like you're looking at some at least 20% cash on cash. So really, really good.   Michael: Oh, that's an that's amazing. That's amazing. So I'm curious to know, too, and I don't want you to give away the secret sauce that that's included in the book, but what are some things that people should be aware of with regard to professional management versus self management.   Avery: So this is something that I I talk about a lot so and and this is not an across the board thing. I 100,000% have managers for my long term. So it's a different game, we're talking about short terms, exclusively here. So um, if you are someone who is trying to use the income from short term rentals to really Bootstrap and boost that income and buy more properties faster, a traditional style property management company is probably not going to be the partner to help you get there.   Managing one short term rental is really only going to take you about 30 minutes per week. And it's not going to be all at once. It's going to be like I'm responding to a notification here responding to notification there. It's really like answering a few text messages a week. You might have to pick up the phone and call a plumber sometimes but it's really not anything, it's not any significant amount of work.   I have eight. And so to give you some perspective, so the traditional Property Management split and short term rental is average 25%. It was actually 40% When I started, but a lot of self managers and stuff have kind of brought, you know, people have had to lower their rates to stay competitive. But even if I had had a 25% manager this year, my properties are on track to hit an $800,000 Gross this year. So if I paid somebody 20% 25% of that, that's $200,000. This year that's like upper management level salary, to do something that I can do straight from my phone, like, is it work? Yes, but it's very easy work considering the $200,000 that I would be paying someone else to do that for me.   So when you look at it that way, it really makes a lot of sense. Once you get to probably about 10 properties, you might want to hire a virtual assistant to kind of help with things. But the way technology is now with channel managers and pricing managers, almost everything is automated, a lot of the things that were not automated when we started are now automated. So there's really no reason why I mean, really, anyone can self manage if they want to.   Michael: That's incredible. Nicely done. Nicely done. Avery, before I let you go here, I want to talk about your book, short term rental long term wealth, what should people expect to find in it when they pick it up?   Avery: So you will find the first half of the book is about how to choose a market, how to analyze a property, how to find the team in that market to help you so agent, mortgage broker, all those people. And then the second half of the book is actually about how to self manage remotely so that you can keep at potentially $200,000 a year to get yourself started so that you can then grow your wealth through short term rental investing.   Michael: Amazing. And people can pick that up on BiggerPockets calm as well as amazon.com.   Avery: Yes, so right now it's on bigger pockets, calm slash STR book, and you can pre order it on Amazon, it will ship November 14. It is also available on Audible right now.   Michael: Amazing. And if people want to take advantage of the short term rental shop, or the mortgage shop, what's the best way for them to get a hold of you and your companies.   Avery: So you want to go to the shorttermshop.com There's a little box in the middle of the page that says schedule a consultation, hit that button. That's the best way to get started with us. And then for the mortgage shop you want to go to www.mortgageshop.co   Michael: Amazing. Every This has been so much fun. So eye opening any final thoughts for folks before I let you out of here?   Avery: I think we've pretty much covered it. Thank you so much for having me.   Michael: Awesome. Well take care and we'll talk soon I'm sure. Thank you alrighty everybody, that was our episode a big big big, big big thank you to Avery This was so much fun. I learned a ton. If you're interested in short term rentals, I definitely recommend picking up Avery's book as well as going back to this episode and giving it another listen. As always, thank you so much for listening, watching, and we look forward to seeing the next one. Happy investing

10 Ways to Take a Stress Free Family VacationIf your trip involves air travel, eliminate stress from the get-go by opting for a direct flight. Short layovers can be agonizing as you hurriedly navigate your children through unfamiliar airport terminals in search of food and restrooms. On the other hand, long layovers generate tiredness and boredom. Taking a direct flight will also help you avoid spending money on airport food and unnecessary shopping purchases.In an era of air travel when basic economy fares offer tempting prices, it's easy to ignore the add-ons. Pre-flight seat selection is one addition that is fundamental for families. When the time comes to choose your seat, make sure you select this option regardless of whether the airline offers the service for free or not. Most airlines will sit families together, but it isn't a foolproof system. Waiting until check-in to find out where your seats are can lead to being separated throughout the cabin. Even if flight attendants can rearrange you, it'll probably involve having to convince another passenger that they'd be better off sitting elsewhere.A sound night's sleep is essential to successful traveling. Guarantee you get some much-needed shuteye by sticking to your home sleeping arrangements and find accommodations with individual bedrooms. At the end of the day, you can put the children to sleep and then enjoy some uninterrupted downtime before turning in. You'll all wake up fully refreshed and ready to embark on the day's adventure. To achieve this, you might need to veer away from the standard open-plan hotel room. Vacation rentals on websites such as Airbnb and VRBO offer apartments at rates lower than many hotels.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

Property managers, even in the long-term space—if they are in coastal areas or have really popular destinations—have vacation rentals they are also managing and dealing with. You've been an expert in that industry for a while. Why don't you give us a little bit of background on you, how you got started with this, and then we can hear more about Booking With Ease, TripAngle, and all these cool things that you've got going on. Rick: The reason we started this whole business plan is because my mom passed away when I was younger. One of the last things she told me was that she wishes she could have traveled more often, but it was so expensive. The reason she mentioned that is she had a really good job, and they flew her everywhere. But to include me, her son, who she wanted to bring me to several places—she took me to Philadelphia, Boston, you name it—it would cost her the full price to bring me. Her company paid for her. I remember pretty much every time she would tell me man, I would love to take you to Charleston. I just can't. She was very apologetic. That's one of the last things she tells me. She wishes she could have travelled more often. Our thought process was how do we lower the cost of vacations? What we came up with is eliminating the overhead to the owners completely and lowering the cost of their travelers significantly. We came up with TripAngle. TripAngle actually merged with a company called Keys to the House that's been around for over 25 years. We've been in the industry forever. We built it from the ground up. We have our own MailChimp, and we built tools for the owners to be able to rent their properties easier, more efficiently, and once again, lower their overhead big time. When you rent through some of the big boys online with the vacation rental listing sites, it can be quite costly. The reason being is they keep outbidding each other to buy the top spots. What we do is we grow organically. We spread by word of mouth because everybody loves to tell everybody the money that they're saving. We work in conjunction with everybody else. It's a way to just gain more exposure for their short-term rentals. Some of our customers use our features, some don't. We offer free accounting and scheduling for cleanings. We even have where instead of putting our business on all the receipts, you can upload your logo, and all emails sent to your customers have your logo on them. It looks more professional. It's to grow your rental business. We just grow by word of mouth, and we love saving all of our owners' and customers' money Jason: People can white-label this. People can use your tools and services. They're going to save a lot of money versus using these systems that have been a monopoly (it seems like) to some degree. You've got Vrbo. You've got the HomeAway things. You've got Airbnb, of course. How do you stand out in this market of all these big guns? Why would property managers be inclined to leverage and use your system instead of these big networks? Rick: They can use them in conjunction with it. It works well. It keeps the calendars in tune. We're the only site that can guarantee no double bookings because of the way we built our system. It's just much easier to use. What happens is people will sign up with us. They'll use other people mainly. They'll use us a small percentage, but they'll use us. Once they start seeing how much money their customers have saved and how easy it does everything for them, they start transferring everything over to us. We just had a lady sign up with us. Vrbo upped her booking fee to $470. Using our system, on average, her booking fees are about $100. What's neat about that is she makes $20 extra, meaning it's 100% customizable per property. She added the dollar amount. Some people add a percentage amount. Jason: So you can add your own markup. Rick: To the processing fee, right. Her customers went from Vrbo paying $470, and now, they're paying $100–$120 and she makes $20 every booking on top of that in addition to saving the customers $300 a pop. Not to mention that Vrbo also charges her to rent it out. They charge a percentage and things of that nature. Most of our owners collect their own income, their own credit cards. If they collect, our services are 100% free. Jason: Okay. For those listening that are property managers, they can do this and act as the owner for and on behalf of their owner-clients and do the same thing. Rick: Absolutely. Property managers, condo complexes. We've helped a lot of people basically get out of the restraints of property management. I spoke to a town in Texas just recently. They just signed up with us, but the woman told me that they only have the same three property management companies. They've gone through that list about five times because they'll pop somebody, get tired of it, fire them, and go to the next guy, but that's all they have access to. Now, with our system, it does everything for them. It's fully automated. Once you set up your parameters, it's 100% customizable, meaning some of our owners collect $1 amount at the time of reservation. You can set it up per listing. Others collect a percentage of the rental. Some of them charge the remaining balance—which it does automatically through our system once you set that parameter—two days prior to a guest's arrival. Others have it 60 days prior to the guests' arrival. Just whatever it is, it'll run automatically. Somebody lists with us. They say, put $20 down, they'll make $20 extra every reservation, and their customers are saving quite a bit of money. Another thing that they save money on is through Vrbo and Airbnb, they charge $60–$65 for $1500 worth of damage protection on their property. We sell $39 for $3000 worth of coverage. We make sure that all of our owners are covered. We built this to grow the owners' companies. They can add as many fields as they wish. The way it works is let's say they put it in there and say, run the remaining amount 10 days prior to the arrival. Let's say they put 50% down at the time of reservation. When somebody books that, that amount will charge for 50% down. It will shoot them a receipt with their logo on the top and check-in instructions with their logo on the top. Nothing to do with us. Ten days prior to the arrival—if that's the parameter they set—it'll run it in full, it'll schedule it to be cleaned, and it'll alert the cleaners. The cleaners even have it color-coded, knowing if there's an out and in that day. They can make notes. All those notes are sent back to the owners once they're cleaned. Whenever it runs it in full, it'll send them all that info. Two days prior to their arrival, it will send them again that receipt showing paid and check-in instructions because some people make a booking a year ahead of time. Then, a couple of days before, they'll get reminded, this is how you check-in. Our customers can do anything they need. Sometimes, somebody will say, hey, can you send me that receipt again? All they have to do is log in to our website and send it back to them. Another great feature is if they collect their own credit cards, more than likely, they use a company called Authorize.Net. All Authorized.Net is just an online credit card machine. That's it. Whenever people go to log in Authorize.Net, they make you change your login all the time. It can be somewhat frustrating. Through our system, they never have to log in to Authorize.Net. They can refund, they can charge extra, they can do everything through our system. We're integrated with RemoteLock. We're integrated with Authorized.Net. We just helped integrate BookingPal, Vacasa. We've got some big tentacles out there, and we're just growing everybody's company. That's all we care about is growing the owners' rentals. Jason: Awesome. For those listening, a lot of property managers who hear this will go, wow, that sounds really great. Maybe it'll replace me. Maybe you could touch on that. Is this something that the property managers listening to this could use for and on behalf of their owners to be really effective, have better tools, better pricing, and maybe be a better profit center for them? Rick: We have a ton of property managers that use us. What it's done is it helped them eliminate more than half of their staff. It really helps do that. We do hate that a lot of people are getting let go, but it helps make the owners more money. That's what it's all about. Jason: Business owners, I don't think, would be sad to hear that they can't. They don't need as much staff. Staffing is always the most expensive resource in a business generally, so every business owner would be happy to hear that they can operate with less staff. That doesn't mean they're just going to fire everybody, but maybe it means they now can afford to spend more on acquiring more properties to manage, doing more marketing, and shifting their team members' efforts towards building the business up instead of just trying to deal with what's coming in. Rick: We just talked to an owner in Texas that signed up with us not that long ago. This was about a year ago. I remember her specifically saying—and it blew me away—how her property management company at the time used software, meaning that if anybody made a change to a reservation or anything, she would have to go to the office to make everything. From our system, you can change it from your cell phone, tablet, or computer—you can change it from anywhere. We've taken as much out of the owner's hands as possible. Let's say they have it where it charges 10 days prior to their arrival. It'll schedule it to be cleaned. It'll do all that stuff. Let's say somebody calls and says, hey, I want to change my dates or change my condo or home. You can change it in our system with just one click of a mouse. It'll change the cleaning for them. It'll change the calendars on both their properties. It does absolutely everything for them. It's really a simple tool to use. Another great feature is we have search by availability for owners' websites where it will only go through their rentals. We offer rate tables, calendars, custom-built widgets for owners' websites to more efficiently run their rentals, and tape charts. Jason: Rick, let me clarify some of this for those listening. Most of my property management clients and property management business owners refer to their clients as owners. I just want to make sure for those listening, it sounds like what you're saying is when you're saying owners, you're talking about the business owners really. It could be the property manager or the direct owner of the property, but you're talking about the business owner. These business owners have these tools available for them to integrate your system with their website for bookings, to manage their business, to send out white-label emails with their own branding on it—all this stuff. Rick: Yeah. Mailchimp can send specials to everybody they've been with, but as far as the clients go, property management companies love using us. They've been able to grow their businesses and like I said, cut their costs. It's a very simple tool to just plug and play. We've helped a lot of property management companies really get over the hill, so to speak. Jason: You showed me around a bit and had me take a look at stuff. My feedback was initially, it's not the sexiest, prettiest thing, but it sounds like it does everything. It has lots of bells and whistles. You guys have put a lot more attention on the backend, on integrations, on features, and really, it's very client-centric. It sounds like your business is really taking care of your customers and making sure you're building the best product that can do a lot of cool stuff. My feedback to those who are listening to this is give it a check out, take a look at it, and don't judge the book by its cover. Really get into the features and the benefits that could be really beneficial for your business. Rick, what are some of the biggest questions that a property manager who has never used your system? You're selling to them, what are some of the biggest questions that they're concerned about or they want to know? Rick: We prefer property management companies as opposed to individual owners. We serve everybody. We have tons of different clients. But if an individual owner comes to us, they have one property, two properties, we answer those questions. Once they've asked those questions, they know how to use the system so we don't ever have to hear from them again. We prefer a property management company with 500 properties asking those 1 or 2 questions and then learning the whole system. They're off and running 500 properties as opposed to 1 or 2. It's fully accountable. It's 100% customizable per property. If you put 10 properties on our website and you wanted all 10 properties' money to go to a different account for each rental, we have that option available to you. You can set it up per rental. We have it to where some you charge tax, some you don't. We even have features in Florida, if they stay 180 days or longer, it's considered a homestead. If you book a rental for four months, you have to pay taxes on those four months. Those taxes are usually about 17%, 18%, 19%. In Texas, it's 30 days. If they stay 30 days or longer, it's a homestead, so there are no taxes. Whenever they set it up with us, they could say, I want to set up city tax at 7%, hotel tax at 6%, convention center at 2%, and only charge if they stay 29 days or less. If they stay 30 days or more, don't charge taxes. It automatically does the calculation for them. It does it all right there. They book it, they get sent their receipts, and it really helps our owners out because they see where the taxes need to go. It's all itemized right there. They can edit their spreadsheets on our system. Some pay for extra cable, and some like to add in their homeowners' dues. It's just got every feature you could think about. Another great tool for our property management companies—I'd say 70% use the tool this way, whereas 30% use it this way. Some of them, the 30%, make it to where their owners can change things. I have an owner in Virginia that has a property in Florida. They may want to change some pictures on their listing or they may want to change the cost of the property. They can log in themselves through TripAngle, edit that one property, and it will change it on the property management company. That's about 30% of our property managers. The 70% don't like them being able to touch anything, and that's understandable. They could show everything through there. But once again, we made our entire system 100% customizable for whatever their requests are. Jason: Usually, with software that has so many options, features, levers, and buttons, it gets a little bit confusing. How steep is the learning curve? What's the support process like in terms of getting onboarded? Rick: The support is we will hold your hand and walk you through everything. People know how to list their properties. They've done it on Vrbo and on Airbnb so they know how to do all these things. We get very few questions. We should probably get more questions, but people seem to figure it out pretty easily. But people will cancel their reservation. They will change. Our system would be 100% automated if it wasn't for this, but since people do change and they'll call, we'll show them how to click a button or two on our website, and they've got it. You've got a section for all active listings. We even have a feature if you want to set it up to approve the booking. Some people have their property listed on so many different websites. They don't even really know how much they have it listed on so they don't like to take the instant booking, which I understand because it could have already been booked and you just didn't think to put it on there. Our calendars will stay booked. If you have it synced with Airbnb or Vrbo, it will stay in tune. But a lot of people don't like to use calendars on any of them, and they like to approve a booking. A booking will come in, and they have 24 hours to approve it. I'd say 90% of the bookings that come in are approved by our owners. Once again, they can just make it as customizable as they want, but it's really easy to use. It's really simple. It's all about keeping it simple, stupid. We learned that a long time ago and man did we not make it easy getting to that point through professionalism and luck. We have some partners that can do anything. Our team has really been on top of the ball in just putting everything together. If there are ever any questions or any problems, we fix it within hours. We don't have any. Jason: This sounds really great. How can people get started with this? How can they find out more? What would be the next step for those that are curious of taking this for a test drive or maybe taking a look at it? Rick: What they can do is they can go to either one of our websites, bookingwithease.com. You can look at our features. It just answers some of your questions, the general information of every company. It gives you links to be able to click on where it'll divert you over to TripAngle and you could sign up. It's free to sign up. Once you sign up, we recommend putting a RepID number. You had a RepID number for us because I wanted to have a RepID number in there to make sure that the people from DoorGrow get taken care of. What was that RepID number again? Jason: Rick, had me set up an affiliate code or a RepID number. My representative number is 2167. I guess if they go in once they're going through the registration on tripangle.com, towards the bottom, there'll be a representative number. If you put in 2167, Rick's going to do some special for you, some discount or something like that. Rick: Absolutely, yeah. We take care of all of our customers. We'd be happy to reach out to them once they put in that representative ID number. That's how we've grown our business is word of mouth. Most people like to tell others of the great deal that they found. Once they realize what they make on it, they love it. We pay 10% of what we earn. We're doing strength by numbers. The reason our numbers are so low compared to everybody else is because they're trying to compete with each other. We're doing it organically through each other's websites and spreading by word of mouth. As people sign up with us—let's say somebody enters in the 2167 under you, what that will do is on your dashboard, you'll be able to see who's signing up, what bookings are coming through, and all that good stuff. When you have a customer sign up through DoorGrow, they go in there, they sign up, they can agree to our affiliate program—just like you did—they'll be assigned a number, they can tell their neighbor to go sign up, and they'll get 10% of every bit of our earnings per property. Jason: Very cool. They can go to bookingwithease.com which also links to tripangle.com where they would register. They can also just go to tripangle.com to check that out. Cool. Rick, before we wrap this up, is there anything else you feel like a property manager should know regarding TripAngle? Rick: They're in the process of uploading all of them, but we just signed about 3000 properties in Colorado where I know for a fact that they're offering it through an affiliate either breckenridgelodging.com or mountainskitrips.com. If you go to those websites, it'll have our link to be able to book their rentals. You can pick out their rentals, but they're offering 15% off right now for the first month. They just signed up with us. Any properties you find in Colorado on our website should be through those companies—Breckenridge Lodging or Mountain Ski Trips. They're offering 15% off right now on top of their already lower rate. Just to give a quick example, I spoke with a lady the other day from Airbnb. She was a traveling nurse. She asked if she could book one of our rentals. She said she could only afford $1400. If she would have booked directly through TripAngle, it was $1275. She would have booked for less. But through Airbnb, you can't really discuss information until after the reservation's made. I went in there and I adjusted it to where she should have been at the $1400 range. I told her. I said we did the $1400. I don't know what they charge. She looked at it and she said, I'll never use them again. She wanted to book it for four months. They were charging her $2350 a month, meaning they were making $950 a month to use our system when I'm the owner and I'm only making $1400. That doesn't seem like it's the right thing there. If they would have charged (say) $950 upfront, maybe a one-time fee, even that is too high if you ask me. But that's the point. The cost of vacations has definitely skyrocketed since Airbnb has been introduced. We're here to get owners more exposure. They use us in conjunction with Airbnb. The one woman I just told you about from Vrbo for $470, she stopped using them quite some time ago. Airbnb can be fun. Let me tell you that. That can be exhausting at times. I feel that Airbnb has taken a lot of control out of the owners' hands—a lot of it. Our system gives owners 100% control over their listings. If they want to go in and do anything through our system, they can do it. I had a woman who, through Airbnb, booked for September 20th because I had somebody checking out on September 20th. She let me know just now that she actually has to be here on October 18th. She thought she booked it on the 18th, so I went to the Airbnb to switch it out. It wouldn't let me change anything. It was the most difficult process to get her. What I finally did was she agreed to pay me cash when she shows up. There shouldn't be anything like that on Airbnb. With our system, you can adjust the rate. You can adjust everything. You can offer percentages for discounts. One thing that a customer of ours just brought to our attention that they absolutely loved is they have over 2000 rentals. They use another website, but they have to go through on all 2000 rentals to add a discount for that rental. We offer—where you can do that—a master discount so it goes immediately on all 2000 of their rentals. That's so much easier. Jason: Yeah. Rick, I'm sure you could probably tell us features. You just spout these off the top of your head, but you could probably go on for an hour just telling us all the features and benefits of this. It sounds really awesome. Again, I recommend everybody to check it out. Go to tripangle.com or bookingwithease.com, and take a look at that. Rick, I appreciate you coming on and sharing this with us. I think it's cool. I'm excited to expose my audience to this. They're always looking for some cool hack or something that might keep more money in their pocket. I hope your continued success against these companies. Rick: One quick thing I do want to say—and this is all thanks to you—is I do love how you're a straight shooter. Love it. You told us that our logo on TripAngle was awful. I don't know if you know this, but I worked with your team, and they developed it. My business partners and I were cramming, collaborating, and all over the place. What logo that we came up with doesn't even hold a candle to what you all came up with. I even gave your team specific instructions envisioning in a certain way. What they did was 100 times better. I'm so glad they really didn't listen to me because I was wrong. If you go to TripAngle right now, you can see that new logo. There's one at the top and at the bottom. Jason: I like it. Rick: That came from you guys. Jason: Yeah. My team does good work. That's really cool. Rick: They do great work. Jason: I appreciate you being open to feedback. I'm a little rough but hey, if I see a business owner that has something cool but there's something on the surface that would be super easy to fix that would make business easier, I'm going to call it out. That's what I do. Kudos for taking some advice from me. Sometimes it's not comfortable to be told your kid's ugly, so to speak. They need plastic surgery. Rick: Right. That's why they have braces. Jason: Awesome. Cool. I appreciate the little plug for my brand-new team. Rick, I'll let you go. I appreciate you coming on the show. I'm excited to see what you do. Rick: Absolutely. Thank you so much. I look forward to growing with you guys. Jason: Awesome. If you have a crappy logo, you're not really proud of your brand or how things look, you are being perceived falsely as mainly a real estate company, but you do property management, or there's something off with your branding, let us teach you how to clean that up. Let us help you clean that up. We've rebranded hundreds of companies. We are the world's leading property management, branding, and web design agency in existence.

Is the weather starting to change where you live? Autumn has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere and this week Kim and Tamara talk about where they have visited recently for fall travel and some other fall favorites. Full Episode Transcript [00:00:00.000] - Kim Tate It's time to fall into fall travel.   [00:00:14.670] - Announcer Welcome to Vacation Mavens, a family travel podcast with ideas for your next vacation and tips to get you out the door. Here are your hosts, Kim from Stuffed Suitcase and Tamara from We3Travel.   [00:00:29.180] - Tamara Gruber So Kim, by the time this comes out, it's going to be less than a month from Halloween. Do your girls still do stuff for Halloween, or do they dress up or do they go on any haunted hay rides or any of those kind of things they have done?   [00:00:42.560] - Kim Tate We have haunted corn mazes and stuff down here, and they normally get together with friends. And there's some kind of youth event that happens at some of the local farms and pumpkin patches and stuff. And we've been known to go to the pumpkin patches and do some of the kiddish activities. But with Mia being 14 now, she's kind of at the cusp of that, and she's got a sweet heart, so she still likes it. But she's not quite into all the activities as much anymore.   [00:01:10.100] - Tamara Gruber No more trick or treating?   [00:01:11.930] - Kim Tate She actually mentioned because they didn't go last year, and she said, I think I'm going to go this year. It'll be with her best friend. She's like, it'll be our last year, and we're going to go for it. And I said, go do it. That's awesome.   [00:01:23.240] - Tamara Gruber So yeah, I'm waiting to see what Hannah will do. I know her friends have really been trying to convince her to do some kind of haunted house hayride kind of thing. To me, the whole idea of a haunted corn maze sounds absolutely terrifying. Something could just jump out of you. I don't like jump scares either. As a teen, I did do a haunted hayride, but at least then you know, the direction they're coming from. They only come outside, and I can kind of sit in the middle in a little safer, but right down the street for me, they have some kind of I don't even know I've never gone, but it's this whole horror thing in one of the parks that you kind of walk through.   [00:02:00.240] - Tamara Gruber So it's a little bit more of a walk through type of thing, but they've not convinced her. So I don't know about trick or treating, though, because last year obviously no trick or treating. The year before she was going to go with one friend, but then it ended up raining. So I think they decided just to stay home and hand out candy instead. I'm not sure if there'll be one last or she'll just stay home, and we usually try to do Apple picking or some kind of visit to a farm this year.   [00:02:27.240] - Tamara Gruber I've already gone and picked up Apple cider Donuts for her. I think she's just so busy she can't really see about it this year. I'm trying to still give all the fall treats. Here's some Apple cider and Apple cider Donuts. And I made pumpkin pie dip when we had some people over recently in our backyard. And so as she's getting the fall stuff without the scary stuff, that's cool.   [00:02:52.230] - Kim Tate I grew up in Kansas City, and when I was a teenager, there's this area. And I can't even think because I know it's something like all the Kansas City listeners are going to be laughing that I can't think of this. I want to say it's something like the flats or the bottoms, or I can't remember. But there's this area in Kansas City, and it's like, known for having some of the creepiest most amazing haunted houses. And because it's this old warehouse district, right. And they would dress them all up and everything.   [00:03:19.730] - Kim Tate And that was the thing that we always did as teens. And I'm kind of glad that my girls haven't gotten into that. I do know there's one up north, that's kind of a haunted house type thing in a warehouse. But other than the corn maze, there's not as much around here, but I remember as a kid those things that freak me out so mad.   [00:03:38.260] - Tamara Gruber I'm starting to wonder if it like, haunted or not haunted, but it's just general, like, really creepy lawn decorations are like the new holiday lights. You know, how people know, there's the houses that do a really good holiday lights, and they drive around and look at them. The other day, I was driving and a home from practice, and there's a house that is absolutely terrifying. I don't know what's wrong with the people that live there, but there's basically a 15 foot skeleton. Then there's a whole line of super creepy zombie dudes.   [00:04:09.280] - Tamara Gruber And then out of the corner of my eye, I see it's got to be like, ten foot tall pig with a giant knife and an apron on. And I'm like, Where do you even find this bizarre stuff? I really need to go buy the house and take a picture of it. But I'm scared that if I do, I don't know somebody who's a little disturbed in there.   [00:04:31.390] - Kim Tate Yeah, I think I saw something a while back that spending for spending for decorations and all that stuff on Halloween is second only to Christmas.   [00:04:42.320] - Tamara Gruber Yeah, it's so easy. And I were talking about all the houses that we used to never be able to go to when she was little. There was the house with the giant Spider. No, we had to skip that one. There was the one that had the little smoke tunnel you went through. We had to skip that one because she was scared of everything when she was little. So we were laughing about that. But not everything has changed because, yeah, I know, literally, we couldn't even go down certain aisles and target because if something started to move and make noise, she'd have a little breakdown.   [00:05:10.370] - Tamara Gruber Oh, man, she's not the haunted house type. That's for sure.   [00:05:14.760] - Kim Tate Yeah.   [00:05:15.470] - Tamara Gruber Well, there's lots of other fun things to do, though. You just went and did some haunted kind of stuff. I know I saw your picture when you're in Disneyland, and I'm like, Whoa, that looks kind of crazy for Disneyland. But tell me what you did when you were just down in California.   [00:05:29.370] - Kim Tate Yeah. So for those of you who know Disneyland, they actually do a lot of seasonal parties. And starting in September, they do a Halloween time at Disneyland Resort, and they go out. They kind of decorate the parks with beautiful Orange swags, and they have some hand carved pumpkins decorating Main Street. And then they do a few other things this year, they have quite a cool area back in one of the regions for Coco and Dia des Muertes. And then some celebrations around that as well. And then the bigger thing that you saw my picture of was they have parties called Oogie Boogie Bash, and it's kind of crazy how expensive it can be, especially for a family, because they sell these bash party tickets in addition to your park ticket.   [00:06:19.400] - Kim Tate But you don't have to have a park ticket for this party, which is kind of nice. So you can theoretically go to the parks with normal park ticket and then buy one of these. And you can get in 3 hours before your park before the party starts. You can get in at 03:00 p.m. When the party starts at six. And so some people choose to do that, but they are sold out. So if anyone's hearing this, you need to be looking ahead to 2022 if you're thinking of doing kind of a Disneyland and fall.   [00:06:45.290] - Kim Tate But you can still go to Disneyland and celebrate stuff during the Halloween time celebrations. They do a ride overlay for Haunted Mansion, which is called Haunted Mansion Holiday. And it's got Jack Skellington, and he kind of takes over the ride. And sorry for Disney people. I should say the attraction. But anyways, so he takes that over and that lasts all for Christmas because it's kind of like him like that spooky mixed with Christmas season. So it's kind of fun thing. And then they also do cars Land also gets a big makeover and becomes radiator screams, which is kind of funny. And they do a lot of fun, like car part themed, like spiders made out of engines. And, you know, Crow bar stuff. And then they've got these fun cones and tire eyes. And each of the two rides that are not the main radio racers. Each of the two rides get a makeover with fun music and theming around Halloween. So they do that. And then the last one is Guardians of the Galaxy, which used to be Tower of Terror.   [00:07:45.380] - Kim Tate It gets a makeover at night. So kind of later afternoon evenings, it becomes Guardians of the Galaxy, Monsters after dark. And so the theming of the ride, like the story that you see on the screens and the music changes, and it can be pretty intense and scary, I think, for some people. So anyway, that's kind of the thing at Disneyland, but the OG Boogie bash party is something different. And that's what I showed your picture of. Yeah.   [00:08:10.200] - Tamara Gruber Well, I mean, Tower of Terror or Guardians of the Galaxy. The attraction itself is scary to me with that one.   [00:08:18.930] - Kim Tate I know. I see that one I can't handle. My stomach can't handle it.   [00:08:23.210] - Tamara Gruber Yeah. So how long do they keep that theming before they switch over to Christmas stuff?   [00:08:28.900] - Kim Tate so this actually is ending October 31 for the season. Sometimes it goes to the first day or two of November. I think it depends on how the week falls, but there's a chance you'll see some stuff. Still, if you're there on November 1 as they take it down. But they're pretty good about getting those holiday things up. And then right back down and then the Halloween decorations will be gone. And then you'll have until about the second week of November. I think this year it's November 12 is when the holiday overlay starts happening and kind of comes alive.   [00:09:02.960] - Kim Tate And then they'll have some festival, the holidays, events that celebrate not just Christmas. So they tried to bring in like Hannukkah and Kwanza and Three Kings Day, so they're trying to make it a little more open to everyone. And then they also just launched this brand new party thing. It's just kind of like the Oogie Boogie bash party called Merriest Nights, which is a ticketed event. There's still a couple of tickets for two days open for that one. So if you did want to do holidays in Disneyland, you could look into that.   [00:09:31.820] - Tamara Gruber Yeah.   [00:09:32.510] - Kim Tate So there's a little about ten to 14 days that you get the parks without anything. And then it goes from Halloween time to Christmas time. Or I guess I should say holiday time, out of time, festive season, winter festivities. Yeah.   [00:09:50.540] - Tamara Gruber And they do some similar things, but different at Walt Disney World, right?   [00:09:54.870] - Kim Tate Yeah. So the big news with Walt Disney World right now, they are doing like a boo bash thing. That's an after hour ticketed event. I haven't heard as much about it. I don't know how big of a hit it was. And then they normally do some kind of Christmas thing. They've announced a few things down there. But the big news for Disney World right now is that October 1 is the start of their 50th anniversary celebration, and they've kind of gone all in on decor and merchandise and special things around that.   [00:10:23.730] - Kim Tate So if you are headed to Florida and Walt Disney World this fall and winter, you'll be kind of looking at that 50th anniversary. Definitely. Check out the two Halloween and winter holiday activities that they have and parties.   [00:10:39.310] - Tamara Gruber Yeah. It's good to know, too, that you need to plan in advance for some of these, or at least you might get lucky with some tickets, but it makes sense to try to think ahead.   [00:10:48.730] - Kim Tate Yeah, especially since you have to make reservations for all the park. Still. So you still have to be making you buy your tickets and make your park day reservations and stuff. And park hopping is very limited. So you pick the park, you're going to start it, and then you can't go to another park until 01:00 p.m.. I'm not quite sure on the timing at Walt Disney World.   [00:11:08.590] - Tamara Gruber Yeah, it's even more complicated.   [00:11:11.280] - Kim Tate More exactly, even more planning than it already has been. But, yeah, that's just a little bit of fall holidays. But what about in your neck of the Woods, about fall seasonal stuff? What kind of things are you for? Travel wise? What do you know about what do you hear about?   [00:11:30.200] - Tamara Gruber Well, we're kind of in that time where everybody wants to go all type of fall here in New England, but I just got back from a trip to the Finger Lakes in New York, and that's definitely a great destination. We were there for the grape harvest. You know, it always varies a little bit on timing when that's going to be, but definitely a fun time. And we have a beautiful weekend. It was low 70s or high 60s, but sunny, and it was just such a perfect we I went with two of my College friends, and we had a blast because I've talked about the Finger Lakes before.   [00:12:06.840] - Tamara Gruber This time I stayed in Ithaca. I was actually hosted at Hotel Ithaca in downtown Ithaca, which is home to Cornell and Ithaca College. It has that College town vibe. In the past, I've stayed at on a different Lake. I've stayed Ithaca right near Cayuga Lake, and in the past I've stayed at Watkins Glen, which is on Seneca Lake. And then one time, I took Hannah to the Finger Lakes, and we stayed in Hammondsport or Corning, which is on Keuka Lake. So there's actually eleven Lakes in the Finger Lakes region, and there's over 100 wineries.   [00:12:39.510] - Tamara Gruber And there's also a ton of craft breweries. There's distilleries, there's tons of cideries, there's tons of farms. So we did a really nice mix of, like, some wine tasting. And we also went to a cider place. But we also did agritourism types of things because it's beautiful up there. It's kind of like a little bit hilly between the Lakes. So there's so many farms or wineries where you're looking down a gentle slope to the Lake in the distance. It just gives such a pretty backdrop. And the leaves there are just starting to change.   [00:13:12.610] - Tamara Gruber So I think in the next couple of weeks, it's going to be really nice. We started with a boat tour with Discover Cayuga Lake, and that was like a little sunset cruise. They do a whole bunch of different Eco cruises. And then the next day, we went to their farmers market in Ithaca, which is like amazing tons of food and beautiful produce. Wineries, cideries, honey, there's local apiaries, so many nice things. We picked up some breakfast there and sat at a picnic table by the Lake and just enjoyed that.   [00:13:45.400] - Tamara Gruber And then we did a couple of tastings at wineries like a pairing with everyone had a charcuterie board, too. And it was just like a really nicely paced, like, really good, relaxing, enjoyable pairing. And then we did a blind tasting somewhere, which is a lot of fun. And then we visited a goat farm. And then yesterday we went to an alpaca farm. I don't know if you got a chance to see my Instagram stories on that, but they're so cute.   [00:14:13.240] - Kim Tate Sweet. Did you buy some alpaca socks or Wolf?   [00:14:17.760] - Tamara Gruber I bought plenty. I had held back at the farmers market and all these other places, but then I was like, okay, I'm supporting the economy right here, which is nice because it's a family on farm. We had signed up to do a farm tour and to take the alpacas for a walk. And I can just say from a wellness perspective, getting to see and interact with really cute, adorable animals is just really nice. It gives such a good feeling, right? Yeah. But yes, I bought a hat, which maybe I'll bring with me to Portugal.   [00:14:51.940] - Tamara Gruber Maybe you'll get to see it. I bought a little scarf. I bought this adorable little fluff ball thing that looks like an alpaca for Hannah, because that was the one thing I always say these days. She's not very jealous of when I go away and do things like she still enjoys when we get to do things together. But she's so busy and stuff going on with her own life that she's not like, oh, I wish I could come with the one. I told her I was going to an Alpaca farm.   [00:15:16.990] - Tamara Gruber She's like, Can you send me pictures?   [00:15:20.020] - Kim Tate Well, I'm jealous. Definitely. I can't wait to see your hat. I hope you do bring it because is it like a felted wool hat?   [00:15:26.650] - Tamara Gruber Yeah, it's kind of. I don't know what kind of like a news boy hat.   [00:15:31.760] - Kim Tate Oh, yes. I don't know what that's called. The sweeper.   [00:15:37.760] - Tamara Gruber Yeah.   [00:15:38.430] - Kim Tate Yeah.   [00:15:39.450] - Tamara Gruber I'm not a fashion person, as you know, I'm not a fashion person.   [00:15:42.030] - Kim Tate But I know I should know what that's called, but I can't think of it right now. Okay, cool.   [00:15:46.230] - Tamara Gruber So that's definitely one great destination. And I can see just from the traffic on my website. Like, what the other popular things to do are. I think even back to last year, last year, we did some family glamping, and I did some glamping on my own, and I think that that's a really nice time to do it before it gets too cold. The nights are crisp and the days are nice. You're not, like sweating in the tent. It's kind of perfect camping or glamping.   [00:16:15.590] - Kim Tate Kind of want the fires at night and stuff.   [00:16:18.550] - Tamara Gruber Exactly. So I think that's a really fun thing to do now. And there's so many places to do that now. I have a whole post on my website about places to go glamping in New England and new ones keep cropping up, which is great. But I know Vermont and New Hampshire are super popular. I think some people come a little bit too late, so just keep track of every state puts out a fall foliage kind of tracker. I have a blog post on my website about following road trips in New England, and I have links to each of those state trackers, so you can see when they expect it to be peak and stuff like that.   [00:16:56.060] - Tamara Gruber But basically the further north you go, the early it's going to be. So things are starting to really pop right now in New Hampshire, in Vermont and Maine, and that's going to continue to kind of work its way south. So one of the things that we like to do is in New Hampshire, there's a scenic drive called the Kancamagus Highway, and I have a post about all the scenic spots to stop along there.   [00:17:23.560] Nice.   [00:17:24.040] - Tamara Gruber And that is now kind of doing really well on the website. And I have a post about New York road trips to take in the fall and Vermont. I know I've been getting a lot of messages from people like, what should I do in Vermont? All of how many people are open to and yeah, exactly. The thing to think about, though, is that it's total leaf peeping season, and it is hard to find hotels on certain weekends, especially the three day weekend in October can be really tough.   [00:17:55.110] - Tamara Gruber So you might need to, you know, try to search early. It's a little bit late for that, but try to look for maybe Airbnb or VRBO or the Glamping and things like that to try to find some alternatives cool or just plan for 220 and 22. What about by you? Do you have other I mean, I'm sure between, like, Apple season and wine harvest, you must have so many great places to go for fall by you as well.   [00:18:19.280] - Kim Tate I was going to say I think Washington State is definitely a big gem for October trips or fall seasonal trips, especially people think about New England, but if you look, it's latitude, right? Not longitude. Yeah. Latitudes. We're kind of similar. And even though we are like the evergreen state, there's a lot of aspens and poplars and Maple trees out here, and we get some beautiful fall colors mixed in with the green trees. So I definitely think that in Washington State, October is also just a really nice temperature.   [00:18:53.680] - Kim Tate If you want to do hiking or drives, you definitely do have to prepare for dreary weather. I'll call it because it's not necessarily always rainy. But dreary is definitely the right word. And fall is when we do get most of our wind storms. We don't have, like, thunderstorms like I grew up with in the Midwest. But we have these massive wind storms, and that normally is in the fall when that can be a problem. So that is something to keep in mind. But otherwise, it's just so nice here.   [00:19:24.150] - Kim Tate The temperatures are so mild, and it's like you said, with glamping and things. It's cool in the evenings, but can kind of get a little warm in the in the daytime, but not too much. It depends how much of the cloud cover Burns off. But I think kind of like with the Finger Lakes. The big thing out here is the fact that it's harvest season. And there are a lot of fall festivals and wine crushing events. And I know that Chelan, which is a very popular vacation destination for Seattle people.   [00:19:52.630] - Kim Tate It's kind of a Lake community destination out here. And they have a massive fall festival that lasts from October through Thanksgiving. And so you can find stuff happening all the time there with different vendors and activities and things like that. And they have, like, an evening. They have family events during the day, and then they have these evening haunted things as well. So it's kind of a big destination. So if you're in Washington state, Chelan is kind of a big thing. And then, of course, some people may have heard of the little town of Leavenworth, which is a Bavarian village out here in Washington.   [00:20:26.820] - Kim Tate It's about, I'd say, about 2 hours from Seattle, probably it depends what traffic's like. And when you're going. And it is known for first, it's October Fest because of the fact that it's a Bavarian town. So it's very German inspired. And they do a big October festival. But then they also do a big holiday lights festival and that's very popular local. So those are kind of the main things I'm thinking about here, of course, like you said, with apples, there's a lot of cider events happening.   [00:20:56.800] - Kim Tate So if you like to drink cider, Washington State is a great place for that as well. And I think Oregon is pretty big in breweries and cideries and stuff as well. And of course, they have their whole Willamette Valley for wine. So they're pretty big as well in the fall embibing travel. Maybe that should be a term. But yeah. So those are kind of the big things that I can think of. I've heard also that I am not a fan of mushrooms, but supposedly Washington has a big mushroom festival as well.   [00:21:28.850] - Kim Tate I guess October is a good mushroom season. So if you know.   [00:21:32.620] - Tamara Gruber A and the Finger Lakes, there is a mushroom spirits distillery. Okay. I don't know much about distilleries. You know, obviously, they're they're made from many different things from vodkas.   [00:21:43.720] - Kim Tate Potatoes, but you never know exactly like.   [00:21:46.770] - Tamara Gruber I don't know what that would be like.   [00:21:49.050] - Kim Tate No idea.   [00:21:49.570] - Tamara Gruber I also saw that they were having an Apple Fest in Ithaca, like next weekend. Definitely. The Apple Fest is huge. Yeah.   [00:21:58.330] - Kim Tate We also have Washington state and even in Oregon and stuff. It's really, really big. I know you have this on the East Coast too, but pumpkin patches and corn mazes. It's just huge. Like I mentioned with when I was talking about what the kids do with the haunted corn maze and all that stuff. It's insane. In our little area. We have probably seven pumpkin patches and corn maze and stuff we could choose to go to. So, I mean, some are definitely bigger than others, but it's a huge thing out here in Washington are the at least at Western Washington is the pumpkin patches and all that stuff.   [00:22:31.820] - Tamara Gruber Yeah, it's definitely big here, too. We have were small state, but we have quite a few in Rhode Island, and then in Massachusetts, there's some super massive ones. I remember taking Hannah to one in Rhode Island, one where the parents didn't go in. We kind of stood outside and chatted, and then we're like, it's been a really long time. Are they ever going to make their way out? But that wasn't haunted. It was just during the day, regular regular comes. But yeah, there's so many fun things to do.   [00:23:01.620] - Tamara Gruber It's outside and a lot of the farms by us. They'll bring in food trucks and live music and sometimes like, little kiddie rides. You definitely do the wagon rides into the pumpkin patch.   [00:23:14.380] - Kim Tate Hay rides, and there's normally some animal.   [00:23:18.700] - Tamara Gruber Some cows, petting Zoo kind of thing. And then there's all kinds of great baked goods. And I love this time of year. I will still always love summer more, and I try to really get out and appreciate fall when I can, because it's just so short for us. September through mid to late. October is beautiful. You still see blue skies. The weather is great. This year has been fantastic, but by November it's Brown and Gray, so it's over. It's done. So I try to take it in as much as I can.   [00:23:57.470] - Tamara Gruber Now, even I'm sitting here looking at my window, like, Why didn't I go for a walk out?   [00:24:02.190] - Kim Tate You can still go.   [00:24:03.970] - Tamara Gruber I know. I have to get work.   [00:24:06.440] - Kim Tate I can still go. I'm with you. I definitely prefer summer. And being in Seattle, we don't have that nice blue sky. Fall day in Seattle is celebrated as if it's the best thing in the world because it's when the cloud cover definitely moves in. So that is one kind of bummer, but we definitely keep our green. I mean, I love the fact that we have green trees all year round, so there's a payoff to it.   [00:24:35.080] - Tamara Gruber Well, I think for people that are looking for some fall color and stuff a little bit later in the season because I've had people reach out to me like, we're coming to Boston in November and where can we see the best? I'm like over one, but you think about a Great Smoky Mountain National Park and so many parts of Tennessee, North Carolina, the Northern Georgia mountains that gets it in Yosemite and stuff as well. That too.   [00:25:02.710] - Kim Tate It's absolutely gorgeous in the fall.   [00:25:04.880] - Tamara Gruber And I know you mentioned Aspens. I definitely see, like in Colorado, they are really popping right now.   [00:25:09.560] - Kim Tate Like, Vail is gorgeous right now.   [00:25:11.510] - Tamara Gruber Not everything is on our time schedule since we're up here further to the north.   [00:25:18.480] - Kim Tate Well, and then we headed in November will be heading down to Arizona. And so for those people who are looking to start escaping that dreary winter, moving in the south, especially Arizona in the fall can be amazing. I'm looking forward to spending a few hours by the pool with you.   [00:25:38.460] - Tamara Gruber I'm kind of hoping that this year we can go back to previous years where I can escape my drink Gray dreary winter with some Sunshine if you the winter. So, knock wood, because Arizona. And then we're supposed to, as I mentioned, go to Aruba, and then we'll see how it all goes. But I really look forward to those little bits of Sunshine in the middle of the cold is that we have well.   [00:26:05.800] - Kim Tate And for those people that are looking for that are into cruising. I know Thanksgiving cruises are very popular. I do feel like they're doing limited capacity on ships because it seems like prices are not really moving on cruises. You're not going to be getting a steal of a deal. And I think getting to choose your cabin, it's going to be limited as well. But I don't know how long that's going to be kept up, but cruising is always kind of a fun fall getaway because you normally head somewhere warm.   [00:26:34.980] - Kim Tate I know the fall is really popular for a lot of Seattle people. They go down to Cabo and that area of Mexico in the fall.   [00:26:41.980] - Tamara Gruber So here's to a good fall. I feel like I need to go pour myself some Apple cider right now.   [00:26:47.830] - Kim Tate I'm jealous of the Apple cider Donuts. Do you know that I've never had Apple cider?   [00:26:51.550] - Tamara Gruber Donuts?   [00:26:51.940] - Kim Tate I don't think I ever have, and I would love them. They sound amazing. I've had pumpkin spice Donuts and I've had lots of fresh Apple cider, but Apple cider Donuts. I don't think I've ever had one.   [00:27:01.480] - Tamara Gruber See, now I'm going to see you soon, and I would happily bring you some Apple cider Donuts. But I will say there are nothing like getting a hot, fresh, fresh one cider donut. So can you just come visit me next fall? Yes, I will have to.   [00:27:16.960] - Kim Tate That's a plan. Let's make it happen. 2022 New England or Bust. Yeah.   [00:27:22.400] - Tamara Gruber New England. You should see New England in the fall for sure.   [00:27:26.030] - Kim Tate Yeah, definitely.   [00:27:26.990] - Tamara Gruber Yeah.   [00:27:27.530] - Kim Tate Well, you'll be my tour guide, so I think we can make that happen. It's always so busy. Like I just got back from a trip. And why is the fall always so busy with work?   [00:27:37.210] - Tamara Gruber Stuff. I know as excited as I am about Portugal. And I know that we're going to get a little taste of all there, too, because we're going to be there during their wine harvest. And we're going to get to in some of those wine events. And for those of you that are listening, pop over to Instagram and check out our Instagram accounts because we're going to be doing some really cool things, like hot air balloon and some very special wine events. And so staying at some really interesting, amazing hotels sounds like it's going to be awesome.   [00:28:09.740] - Kim Tate We're staying at some amazing places we are staying at. Now. This will give you guys a little idea, like work is work, and it's not always vacation. But we are staying at a new hotel almost every day. I think there's two times that we stay at a hotel two nights. Yeah. And we're there for 17 days. So just so you guys know, we are going to be sharing a lot. And we're not just in Lisbon, we're going to Porto and the sorts and Lisbon and and we're going to see a lot of the country.   [00:28:40.580] - Tamara Gruber And I think people are kind of used to seeing certain pictures from Lisbon in particular. And I no Porto is very popular as well. But we're going to get out into the countryside and show you and be able to help figure out what are the great itineraries to do. How can you organize it? So you're not visit our not a new hotel every night?   [00:29:01.640] - Kim Tate Yeah.   [00:29:02.180] - Tamara Gruber Exactly.   [00:29:02.740] - Kim Tate Well. And also knowing it to be a situation where it's like, what's worth? What are these gems that you're not realizing so that you're not just the standard tourists going to the Portugal is an amazing country. And so I'm so excited to get a feel for more of this country that I've already fallen in love with. And so I'm really excited about that and being able to share kind of the other because I think you and I have always said that there needs to be this balance with doing the standard touristy stuff.   [00:29:29.280] - Kim Tate It's a touristy thing for a reason. Most of the time it's worthwhile. And some you don't want to not see it. But you need to balance that with some more, not even off the beaten path, but more things that you wouldn't necessarily know about or think about. And that's why I'm so glad that we're working with the epic travel people because they're on the ground there, and they have all those little gems that they can help put us on that you and I I don't think we wouldn't necessarily have known to look for I'm really excited.   [00:29:56.480] - Tamara Gruber So of the regions we're on top of mind. Right. And then we're doing something like one of the big products in Portugal is cork. And so we're going to do a cork trekking hike. I can't wait where we're going to go and look and see how they would harvest it.   [00:30:16.380] - Tamara Gruber So there's so many interesting things, like digging deeper, traveling in a way that really gets to know the culture and totally up our alley. I'm super excited. So I know we were talking all about fall, and my whole point was as excited as I am about Portugal. I'm missing out on some of the best part of here in New England, but I'll take it. I agreed.   [00:30:39.170] - Kim Tate I mean, everything I'm looking at, it sounds like Portugal is going to be an amazing October destination. So if any of you are listening and thinking about October trips, definitely be following along Tamara again is @we3travel and I'm @stuffedsuitcase, and we will be sharing because from the research I'm doing, it seems seems like a great time to go.   [00:30:58.230] - Tamara Gruber Yeah. Definitely follow along when we come back. Our next episode is going to be all about our Portugal trip. So hopefully you'll follow along and then you'll want to hear even more about it. So you'll tune in next time.   [00:31:13.160] - Kim Tate Well, thanks for joining us, as always, and we hope that you have some wonderful fall travels or local adventures planned ahead. Tchau.

You can also hire a property manager to do the work for you. Once you've got your processes in place, it's easy to sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Once you have a stable income from your first rental unit, finding your next 5 or even 10 units in most urban areas is very doable.

Good Morning, Colorado, you're listening to the Daily Sun-Up with the Colorado Sun. It's Wednesday September 22nd.   Today - Given the affordable housing crisis, many resort towns in Colorado are attempting to limit vacation rentals like those offered on Airbnb.    But before we begin, let's go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett's book “Colorado Day by Day”:   Today, we take you back to September 22nd, 1963 when a ceremony in El Paso County dedicated one of Colorado's most impressive buildings, the Cadet Chapel.  The cadet chapel at the United States Air Force Academy was once described by a critic as “seventeen aluminum tetrahedrons set on end to resemble both a small Gothic cathedral and a squadron of fighter planes ready to zoom into the stratosphere.”   Now, our feature story.   Resort towns across Colorado are taking action to limit vacation rental homes like those offered through Airbnb and Vrbo. Tourists love them for the chance to stay in a house and feel like part of the community. But that luxury comes at the expense of affordable housing. The resulting pinch means that workers can't find a place to live, and businesses can't find workers — making it that much harder to survive. Jason Blevins has been on top of the high country housing crisis from the earliest signs of trouble. He joins us today with the latest.    To read more of Jason's reporting on mountain communities, go to coloradosun.com.    And Before we go, here are a few stories that you should know about today:   Colorado's economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis remains strong, despite troubles from the more contagious delta variant and supply chain and labor shortages. State lawmakers Tuesday found a mostly rosy picture in the state's quarterly economic forecast, which predicted they could have $3.3 billion more to spend next year compared to this year. Gov. Jared Polis called it more evidence that Colorado is “roaring back.”    Criminal charges have been dropped in the death of a spiritual leader whose mummified body was found in southeastern Colorado. The body of Amy Carlson, 45, the leader of the Love Has Won group, was found in a makeshift shrine in the small, rural town of Moffat in April. Seven people were charged with tampering with her corpse as well as child abuse, presumably because there were two children living in the home. Charges against six of them were dropped at a court hearing in September. The Saguache County court clerk's office said it has no record of a case against the seventh person, but didn't explain. It's unclear why the charges were dropped.   Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has activated the Wyoming National Guard to help at hospitals after a surge in COVID-19 infections. Ninety-five soldiers and airmen will deploy to facilities in 16 cities. The guard members will assist with cleanup, food service, coronavirus testing and other needs, serving in rotations of 14 to 30 days. The move comes as 190 people are hospitalized with coronavirus infections in Wyoming, down from a recent high of 223 on Sept. 8.   Three caregivers have been charged in the death of an 86-year-old woman who investigators say was left outside a Grand Junction assisted living facility in the heat for six hours in June. The caregivers are accused of negligent death of an at-risk person and criminally negligent homicide in the June 14 death of Hazel Place. The Rifle native was a mother of three, grandmother of five and a great-grandmother of 12, an obituary said. The Colorado Attorney General's Office helped investigate.   For more information on all of these stories, visit our website, www.coloradosun.com.

Glamping and How Some Members Cash Flow with it (LA 1591) Transcript: Steven J Butala: Steve and Jill here. Jill DeWit: Howdy. Steven J Butala: Welcome to the Land Academy Show, entertaining land investment talk. I'm Steven Jack Butala. Jill DeWit: And I'm Jill DeWit broadcasting from the Valley Of The Sun. Steven J Butala: Today Jill and I talk about glamping and how some of our members are cash flowing with it. This is a huge mile long topic, and rightfully so in Discord, and everybody chimed in. I can tell when it's a good topic in Discord, because people that are just lurking, they start piping in like, oh yeah, this is there's people in there. And so this is why I joined Land Academy. And then they're giving us as an example that five miles down the road this is what this person is doing in their unused cow pasture. Jill DeWit: Do you think what we do is a version of glamping? Steven J Butala: No, not at all. Oh yeah. I think it can be, but I'll explain it. Jill DeWit: Okay, good. Steven J Butala: Before we get into it. Let's take a question posted by one of our members on the landinvestors.com online community. It's free and don't forget to subscribe on the Land Academy YouTube channel and comment on the shows that you like. Jill DeWit: Erin wrote, "Airbnb, VRBO, glamping. Anyone here ever released their land to Airbnb campsite operators getting $135 a night for a tent with a composting toilet and an outdoor shower? I've been watching some YouTube videos about people buying or leasing lands near natural attractions for these style campsites. I have some lots that could be used for this. Any thoughts?" Jill DeWit: Oh, sorry. Nelly wrote, "I've been looking at these for a while. $40,000 canvas tents. Yikes. You can rent out campsites on your property with Hip Camp. Also, been thinking about doing that on a three acre lot that I live on, cleaning up an area near the pond to run out to campers. Maybe do a Deliverance experience for Halloween." That's kind of funny. Steven J Butala: I have to tell you, Nelly, if you've ever seen Deliverance, nobody's going to pay for a Deliverance experience. Most of you who are my age know exactly what I'm talking about and you're laughing in your cereal right now. Jill DeWit: I don't. Steven J Butala: I know. Jill DeWit: I have not seen Deliverance deliberately. Steven J Butala: Yeah. Deliverance is not for you. Jill DeWit: That's what I [crosstalk 00:02:13]. Steven J Butala: There's no singing and dancing or anything like that. Jill DeWit: No happy ending. Like who's still alive, basically, at the end. Steven J Butala: So I put this question in here. It's not really not even a question. I mean, I think the real question is, has anybody thought about this? And everybody responded and said, not only have I thought about it, it's happening down the street and all of that. So because it is a topic, we'll just get right into it. Jill DeWit: Okay. Steven J Butala: Today's topic glamping how some of our members are cash flowing with it. This is the meat of the show. Steven J Butala: Glamping is the combination of two words, glamor and camping. So, it really depends on who you talk to and where they're coming from in life. But there are some people in, I used to be one of these people, I think Jill did too, were look, I just want to stay in a five-star hotel and order some room service and jump in the pool. [crosstalk 00:03:01] any part of camping. Jill DeWit: I still have those days. Like today. Steven J Butala: And so I've slept, probably, unless there's grandchildren in my distant future, this way distant future, I've spent my last night in a tent. You know, this is not what I'm talking about. I'm not talking about pitching a tent, like a soldier and an eating an MRE and downing a half pint of whiskey and go to sleep. That's not what I mean. I'm talking about glamping, which is these... I mean, picture of a fully produced movie from the eighties or nineties where the...
