is easy just use a few common rules to help you through the process.
Tip 1 Determine rental
rates (daily, weekly, weekend, monthly and seasonal) for your home by
checking advertisements for rental rates of similar vacation properties
in the same area. Check VRBO, local classifieds, and with local real estate
brokers. Generally in the Pocono area you can check PoconosHotels.com
for homes or villa rates

cancellations, refunds and maximum occupancy. Post these on your website,
in the home and include them with the written lease you have each tenant
Tip 3 Prepare a classified rental ad for your vacation home with a brief
description of the location, available dates, desirable features, rental
rates, required deposits and a phone number to call for more information.
Tip 4 Attract renters by placing your classified ad on Internet rental
and vacation sites like vrbo.com, in rental property exchange newsletters
like the Pocono Farms community paper and newsletter, or in local newspapers.
Also create your own website with it's own availability and rates calendar.
Tip 5 Contact the Pocono Mountain chamber of commerce or Pocono Visitors
Bureau to see if they provide prospective renters and tourists with listings
of available rental properties.
Tip 6 Require deposits and signed rental agreements from renters these
are available from your local Stables, online or from your attorney. Provide
confirmation of rental reservations.
