Quotable moments from this episode:

“The number one thing for (a) short term rental is location… the question I answer probably a hundred times a week is ‘how far is downtown?’”

“Running a short term rental is a business… you have to be actively involved. It is NOT a passive investment.”

“Property management… is not where you want to go cheap. It can make or break your deal.”
