Special Zoning Requirement vs. Renting Category

Night/Weekly Vacation Rentals in St George Utah, Short-Term Rentals

What makes up the measure of homes in St George being short-term rentals vs. long-term rentals? "Zoning" USED TO BE the designation looked to on the MLS which used to say "Vacation Rental". However, that has changed, and it is no longer listed under zoning, but under the category of "Renting", which must be a categorical change and not a real zoning change per se.  It addresses those second homeowners that get confused with the idea that they can somehow offset their investment by renting it when they still want to occupy it for part of the year. It lets them see that 'No, that is a different animal, making it into a Vacation VRBO or Airbnb type of investment'. It doesn't mean you can't do that, it merely emphasizes that these homes are going to accompany a whole different set of variables like:  higher priced homes for what you get, or like how resalable it might be.

St George is a very popular second home destination, whereby the intent may be to occupy it for part of the year. Thus, it is to help people understand that when examining the logistics of renting a place, based on them being able to occupy it for part of the year or not, it does matter what type of renting it is zoned/classified for, and is important to that end. Because it has to be in a zoned area for that, approved by the city, and there is always the threat of being fined otherwise.

When buyers go to purchase/invest in a second home, buyers may be tempted to envision renting to part-time rental buyers, not realizing that night/weekly renting is a different animal as a "Short Term Rental" now. When it is classified under Renting and not Zoning, it helps them to see that difference better, thus avoiding the pitfall of buying something with the intent to find ready renters when the "monthly" renter "may not be there" OR the development may have rules that negate these possibilities as well.

So other subtleties can exist as well, like the difference between places that allow "monthly" vs "6-month" or "1-year lease minimums" that are better explained under the category of Renting. However, these are secondary to the categorical realities that vacation-bound overran cities, like St George, when NOT wanting to be the next Scottsdale Arizona, like to designate the realities often being that long-term renting may more readily crowd out any ability to now be able to occupy it for part of the year. And so this is a more "absolute" difference to list it under "Renting" rather than inside the category of "Zoning".

This then also helps a city maintain precedence in an increasingly second-home-buying environment to maintain an environment that is run by buyer demand to "see their investment" through that lens of neighborhood requirements, instead of the one that says they can offset occupying it themselves by night & weekly renting "when" it has to have that zoning or designated neighborhood ran environment in order for you to get away with it.

How can I occupy it for part of the year?  Between a Rock and a Hard Spot

Yes, you are like everybody else if you want to be able to occupy it part of the year, yet rent it out to offset the costs of the investment.  Yes, not being zoned Vacation or Night/Weekly rent-able makes it difficult because the city is cracking down on those properties that are obviously advertising night and weekly rent-ability on VRBO or Airbnb when clearly the address is searchable as an offense against the city zoning regulations stipulating that it must have/contain Night/Weekly zoning.  Yes, it is very easy to tell, because the areas that are zoned for it are commonly known and easily deciphered at a quick glance.  Yes, you can try to rent most places in town on a monthly/yearly basis, if the rules governing that subdivision allow it, and most normally would. But, even though "monthly" renting could be allowed, it CAN negate being able to occupy it part of the year if the tenant becomes or prefers to be a more permanent resident. 

Could there be the right kind of renter that only wants it short-term monthly?

As your Realtor, Brian does NOT specialize in the actual renting of properties or rentals.  However, he has an eye for what he thinks MAY be a plausible solution. Caution: Check into this with a property manager that might be more familiar with how these things work. And if that doesn't work, an often hidden key is to check with the HOA or a subdivision president/rep.  But, Brian has found that there are quite a few buyers that would like to rent a home on a monthly basis, more short-term, for a few months until the home they are having built is completed OR until they can get more familiar with the areas before buying in them.  In other words, there are many that would like to first rent as a way to get to know the community before buying in any certain area. But this might be working itself out more into what is becoming more popular for subdivisions to require, at least, a "6-month" lease. While initially, these can be more difficult to find, to require the 6-month lease, just like a yearly lease, people are left with subsequent default month-to-month, they can still be given notice to vacate on a month's notice by the landlord. Thus, the ability to have a renter occupy it for 6–9 months where you can then get it for the remaining 2–3 months is born. Except, renting it after for "6-month" is often more difficult, and you can have more down-time in securing a renter.

Whether as in investor needing to get into the Vacation Renting niche or whether to assess all your subtleties and be equipped with options, use Brian (435-632-0250)? He'd like to help and win your business!
