Our goal has always been to democratize access to the wealth-building potential of real estate investment. Arrived's expansion into vacation rentals is another great step in the right direction toward fulfilling that vision.
Short-term rentals have historically shown high returns and the market is growing as domestic travel patterns change and more people choose to stay in vacation homes. The cost of purchasing a home and the time, effort, and expertise needed to run a successful rental property has traditionally put this out of reach for the average person.
That's why we are adding this exciting new asset class to our platform. With Arrived anyone can buy shares in income-producing rental properties starting at just $100. Arrived takes care of all the real estate operations so that investors can sit back and collect net rental income and their share of the home's appreciation.
US vacation rentals are currently a $13B market & expected to reach $20B by 2025, +53% growth!1
On average, a full time vacation rental can generate up to 130% more revenue than a traditional long-term rental*.2
Work-from-home flexibility & increased business + leisure travel have raised the average stay from 3.5 to 4+ nights from 2019 through 2021.3
Vacation rentals in destinations like Nashville & Orlando have tremendous income potential. Why? Owners can charge higher, competitive nightly rates than they could for a long-term rental property. On average, a full-time vacation rental can generate up to 130% more revenue than a traditional long-term rental.
The total vacation rental market in the United States accounts for over $13B in revenue in 2022 alone. That market size is expected to reach $20B by 2025. A +53% growth in market size means there will be plenty of demand from travelers choosing vacation rentals for the next few years.
Vacation rentals may have more significant income potential, but that income may not remain consistent. The reason? It’s a highly seasonal market. Vacation rentals are most active during their peak seasons, like summer and around the holidays. Less active periods will incur more vacancies and produce less income.
That’s right! Since long-term rental properties are leased to long-term tenants for long periods, it means no fluctuating income. The result? Steady, consistent income and cash flow.
It can be costly to maintain the upkeep and bookings of short-term rentals. Long-term rentals, however, are usually cheaper for the owner to maintain. The savings add up over time. Plus, you get complete control over tenant screening. Most property owners hire a property management company to help with this process.
Rental homes on the Arrived platform receive the tax benefits of being structured as a REIT. So when a property is sold, there are capital gains taxes instead of ordinary income. Additionally, REITs can use a qualified business income deduction, which lowers taxable income by 20%.
