Is Your Home Working For You? Earn Income as a Vacation Rental Owner

Your North Shore property could provide you with additional income next summer! If you own a second home or are away for a significant portion of the year, put your home to good use as a vacation rental home when you are not there to enjoy it.  

Here are the top 5 reasons you should consider listing your home with Atlantic Vacation Homes:


Earn additional income to offset your property expenses

Home ownership entails many responsibilities and costs, including property taxes and general maintenance. Renting your home can turn a liability into an asset. Considering that the average traveler will spend $2500 or more per week on lodging for their vacation, how many weeks will it take you to reach your financial goal?

Peace of mind
