Avery Carl is the go-to contact for short-term rental investing. Her business, The Short Term Shop and The Mortgage Shop not only helps find properties and secure loans for prospective short-term rental investors but also helps guide investors through their first vacation property purchase. While this type of property can be a cash flow king, it also takes more management and a bit more time upfront to get the system oiled and operating smoothly.

Since we last talked to Avery, she’s quadrupled her portfolio from twenty-something short-term units to ninety-six units, sixty-one of which are large multifamily properties. Avery gives an in-depth analysis on why short-term rentals should hold a place in every investor's asset collection, and the common pitfalls investors go through when purchasing their first short-term rental.
