We get this question all the time, What Is A Condotel?
Condotels are like condominiums that operate more like a hotel. Unit owners also have the option to place their unit in the hotel’s rental property where the unit is rented out like any other hotel room individuals own each unit, although the complex shares amenities like a registration desk, lobby registration, and cleaning services. When owners are away, they have the option to make income by renting their condotel as a short-term lease for vacation stays. Condotel owners have the option to rent the units out while not occupying them in order to generate income. Florida Condotels are often treated like second homes and or investments and are quickly growing among Florida vacationers looking for shorter rental income investments in Florida real estate.
