To increase your odds of a wonderful Las Vegas vacation rental experience, it’s imperative to spend some time researching and considering your priorities and budget, taking these tips into consideration:
- Would you rather rent from a management company or a private owner? A private owner can be less expensive as they aren’t paying commission to a real estate company and may provide a more personal experience. A management company may offer more perks and they also pre-screen properties to make sure they are as advertised.
- Consider the list of features each home offers compared to your own list of priorities.
- Be sure there are photos available of both the interior and exterior of the vacation rental home you’re considering.
- Map out the exact location so that you’re aware of the rental’s distance to major landmarks, such as The Strip.
- Check references and reviews by performing a diligent online search.
- Ask for a discount for longer stays of two weeks or more. If there are many homes with available and you aren’t renting during a peak season, such as the Thanksgiving or New Year’s holidays, you’ll have more bargaining power.
- Ask about guarantees and get everything in writing. The rental agreement should be detailed; specifying the responsibilities of owner/management company and the renter as well as the refund policy.
