“How do we make adjustments now to bring more eyes to our short–term rental portfolio? And so, we started marketing our properties on websites that market to corporate housing, and nurses who are traveling for work for COVID to work at hospitals.” – Jorge Contreras
“We started bringing down the pricing where we started to attract locals who were living, say near downtown LA in tiny little apartment spaces where they had no social distancing and they were going down the elevator or something and they wanted to rent a single-family home with some space.” – Jorge Contreras
“Between the staycation, there’s the corporate housing and the nurses, we actually made less money, a lot less money. But we were still making some small profit cash flow margins every single month, even during the worst month of March and April.” – Jorge Contreras
“I believe that co-hosting is a great way to get your feet wet. You also learn management, marketing, customer service. It’s a great way for people that want to get into real estate investing, but don’t have a ton of money.” – Jorge Contreras
“As an investor, we always look at how can I make the most amount of money with the least amount of risk and the least amount of money and the best I did is co-hosting.” – Jorge Contreras
