    GOALS – What type of investment goals do you have? Will you be investing for financial goals, family goals or both? Will you be purchasing a vacation rental to maximize your rental revenue or will you be using this home for your family and offest costs by renting your vacation home when you are not enjoying it. Both of these options can be great and invaluable investment opportunities for you and your family.

    Size – 3 to 5 bedroom, 2 plus bathroom homes will yield the best revenue, yet we know that your budget may only allow for a 2 bedroom home. Guests prefer a minimum of 2 bathrooms, if possible.

    LOCATION – When selecting your vacation home from an investment perspective, the location is imperative. The most lucrative Big Bear rental locations are Lakefront, Lakeview, Walk to Lake,  Moonridge, Walk to or Ski In / Out Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, walk to Village, Fox Farm, Castle Glen, and Boulder Bay neighborhoods.  Fawnskin is becoming a more popular area as well, when marketed properly. These locations can produce great rental income in the Summer months as well as the Winter months, keeping in mind the Lake areas produce the best rentals for Summer and Winter months. Staying as close to the lake, Village and slopes will produce the best rental income. For non lakefront homes, 60 % to 70% of your rental income will be generated from November through March, with an exception for Lakefront rental homes.

    QUESTION to HELP YOU SELECT the BEST VACATION HOME – When selecting a vacation rental, look around the neighboorhood and see if this would be a place that you would love to visit on vacation. What is your first impression when driving into the driveway, when stepping in the home (views, smells, feeling, memories) what is the neighborhood experience, how are the neighboring homes, what are the views, what is the backyard experience, what is the hot tub experience, the views from the deck and the general feeling evoked.  All of these questions will help you create the best guest experience and the best rental income for you.
