So what are the different occupancy models that you’ve got available to you? Short term rental? Medium term rental? A long term rental. And we’ll just go over what the differences are between these models and what some of the benefits are and what they can be useful. So short term is any rental that’s between zero and 30 days.

The ideal kind of property that works well for a short term rental is one or two rooms. Oftentimes it’s couples, single couples that are travelling or maybe small families. And the kind of properties that work well for this are premium properties in central locations.
