Miami Beach is a 15-mile island in southern Florida that lies between bustling Miami to the west, and the vast blue stretch of the Atlantic Ocean to the east. In essence, it’s a friendly, laid-back city with a lively arts scene that welcomes tourists, snowbirds, and year-round residents of all kinds. It’s connected to the mainland by a series of bridges and is a cosmopolitan paradise, with pristine beaches, a year-round warm climate, and the most expansive collection of art deco architecture in the world — more than 800 protected buildings, to be exact!
The urban, self-sustained city of 90,000 is a melting pot of transients from around the world, creating a cultural island that’s home to more than 150 ethnicities — and a housing market just as diverse.

Investing in a home to use as a vacation rental is an excellent move. Especially in Miami, the property market is booming for landlords — the tourist attractions are a highlight. But there are things potential buyers need to know about finding the perfect property to buy and market.

From sourcing tenants to promoting vacancies during low times, you may not be able to do it all alone. Using a vacation rental management company can be a smart move both for saving money and preserving your time. An ideal agency such as Turnkey will handle cleanings, bookings, and 24/7 support for your visitors. Not only does this help keep your involvement relaxed, but it also means a better experience for (and feedback from) your guests.

Owning a rental property is a big responsibility, whether it’s for vacationers or long-term tenants, and it comes with a lot to think about throughout the year. One major concern for most rental property owners is how to keep the area safe and secure.

Even if you’re on a budget, you can invest in security management systems that allow you to keep your property — and your renters — safe throughout the year. Not only that, but there are also several tactics you can utilize that will help to deter burglars and prevent fires and other disasters. Some of these, such as reinforcing locks and installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in each room, are extres ...
