Texas Property Owners Go Gaga (No, NotThat Gaga) Over Airbnb Vacation Rentals

Texas vacation rental property management service

The Lone Star State is having a full-blown love affair with short-term vacation rentals. Thanks in part to popular vacation destinations like Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi, this booming industry poured more than $3 billion into the Texas economy last year.

In “The 150 Best Places to Buy a Vacation Rental Property in 2018,” a total of nine Texas cities appeared in the ranking, including San Antonio (#12), Corpus Christi (#18), Galveston (#23), Port Aransas (#49), El Paso (#68), Austin (#82), Fort Worth (#86), Dallas (#95), and Houston (#101).

A big driver of the passion for short-term vacation rentals on sites like Airbnb among Texas property owners is (no surprise) good old-fashioned greenbacks.

A vivid example of the added income advantage is found in the Cockrell Hill area of Dallas. A peek at its 75211 zip code from 8/18-7/19 revealed median annual revenue for short-term rentals of $30,120 vs. $16,740 for long-term leases – a $13,380 difference and 80% improvement in revenue.

Texas tourists choose short-term rentals on Airbnb over hotel rooms for a variety of reasons beyond the obvious ability to prepare one’s own food, sleep more people, and very often, save money. For example, Austin, a festival mecca with world-class entertainment, offers vacation rentals where owners encourage guests to enjoy their records and books; play the piano; and bang away on the pinball machine.

Throughout America’s second most populous state, property owners with small and substantial investment portfolios are catching vacation rental fever. One well-known Waco couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV fame, offer “Magnolia Stays” for fans. These include the historic Hillcrest Estate that commands a $995 daily rate; the Magnolia House at $795 per day; and the Carriage House, with a $545 weekday rate.

Of course, most vacation rental owners lack the Gaines’ market knowledge and other advantages. With a wide variety of factors contributing to success when renting to vacationers on Airbnb and other sites, many Texas property owners are relying on a full-service Airbnb vacation rental management company.
