At the Lake of the Ozarks, the winter season is the slow season, which means it’s a great time to work on that remodel or those vacation rental property updates you’ve been wanting to add to your home or condo at the Lake of the Ozarks. When the weather is too cold to enjoy the water, people don’t come to the Lake. Less than 10% of our rentals take place during the off-season, and most of those nights are in the spring and fall, with very few from November-February. Take advantage of this slow time to make those changes to your property you’ve been dreaming of.
February is the slowest month for rental nights at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you’ve been thinking about overhauling your vacation property, the month of February is a great time to schedule it! Whether you want to redo your entire kitchen because it’s outdated or you just want to give your home or condo a fresh coat of paint, now’s the time to get it done. By taking care of these things now, along with any regular maintenance items, you’ll be able to maximize your rental potential by leaving the high season dates open for booking.
Simple vacation rental property updates such as an fresh paint color, new flooring or more modern décor can really make a big difference in how your property is viewed online. You’ve heard the saying a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the vacation rental industry, pictures can make or break your rentals. Once you’ve drawn guests in with great property pictures, you keep them coming with great reviews by making sure to keep your property updated and fresh.
As for major remodeling projects, we only advise doing these for your personal enjoyment, as it’s difficult to recoup the entire cost considering how short our rental season is. For these larger projects, the sooner you start the better! As you know, sometimes things don’t always go according to schedule, and you want to make sure your home improvement projects are complete well before Memorial Day and the start of our busy season. Depending on the location and type of property you have, you may want to make sure everything is complete before March, to take advantage of our many spring golf guests.
