I have a vacation home in Hawaii that I rent short term when I’m not there. I was thinking of shipping my old car there for use when I’m on the island (about 3 or 4 months a year). It costs me a lot more to rent cars while I’m there than it would to ship this old car, so it seems to make sense. I would more than make up for the shipping cost in the first year. Or I could just buy a cheap car there. Either way, it seems to make financial sense to have a car.
But my property manager is against the idea because I have a one-car garage that the renters occasionally use (though mostly they just park in the driveway). I think he’s concerned that once in a while someone will rent two cars and there will only be space for one car in the driveway, with no good options nearby for a second place to park. Are his concerns valid?
Am I setting myself up for bad reviews. I would disclose it on my listing, so that it wouldn’t / shouldn’t be a surprise, but that would possibly scare away a few renters.
Maybe I’m over-thinking this, but just wanted to see if other folks agree with my property manager’s intuition or if you feel he’s over-thinking it.
