I know this is somewhat off-topic, but there are some hosts that mix STR with LTR for off-season rentals and such. I did a forum search and saw Furnished Finder mentioned a lot, but not many success stories.
My wife decided to try renting to travel nurses (our LTR and former STR rental fall under her business) and I agreed that it seemed like a good idea, so she signed up with TravelNurseHousing.com which is a sister site to Furnished Finder.
The listing has been live for almost 2 weeks and, so far, it’s been a complete waste of time.
There’s no way to make your listing available to only travel nurses. Anybody can see it on Furnished Finder and send you an inquiry. They don’t proxy any communications, so potential tenants get your e-mail address and mobile phone number. We get one or two “Traveler Housing Requests” from Furnished Finder every day, and they all fall into two categories:
People that want something other than what is specified on the listing. E.g., they want to bring their dog when the listing states no pets, or they want to rent for 1 month when the listing states a minimum of 3 months, or they want to have 6 people when the listing states the max is 4, etc.
We communicate a few messages back and forth and everything looks like it will work out, so we send them a request to do a tenant screening with KeyCheck (Furnish Finder’s own tenant screening service), and they either withdraw their request or just never respond again.
Not one inquiry from a travel nurse, either.
