The profitability of the investment in vacation homes depends on various factors:

  • Location: Choosing an area with high tourism demand and attractive to visitors is essential to maximize the rental possibilities. 
  • Cost:  The sale price, renovations and the maintenance costs must be considerate to determine the financial viability of the investment. 
  •  Demand: Studying seasonality, the tourist profile and local market trends allows you to adjust the rental strategy.
  • Management:  the management efficiency and commercialization of the property is the key to optimize the rentability.


Risks and considerations 

  • Vacancies: Low season, competition or unexpected events may affect the occupancy of the property.
  • Costs: Maintenance, repairs and regulatory changes may incur additional costs.
  • Competence: The vacation rental market is dynamic and requires strategies to stand out.
  • Financing: If the investment is financed with a loan, consider the fees and the impact on your cash flow.


Key strategies

  • Strategic location: Prioritizes areas with high tourist demand, access to services and attractions for different types of travelers.
