Before Purchasing a Vacation Rental

The Hidden Expenses of a Beautiful Bed.

Before purchasing your vacation rental, remember to check out the beds. It’s an expense that so many new buyers overlook. The list below will help you understand the costs of a straightforward bed.

Examining the beds might seem silly when purchasing a vacation rental, but the new buyer should know where they stand before they place that offer. Replacing all headboards, frames, mattresses, box springs, pillows, and linens can be a considerable expense.

A king bed has a frame, headboard, possible footboard, one king mattress, and two twin box springs. It could be just the mattress which is a platform bed. The house linen list below is for a king bed with one mattress and two twin box springs.


The list above is just the beginning, and it does not include the backups required. Proper Mattresses and Bed Linens can be a costly oversight to a new owner.

Book it before you buy it vacation rentals

A significant advantage to purchasing a vacation rental is that you can book it before you buy it. So don’t get lost in that beautiful ocean view with all that white sugar sand. Spending a few days in the unit you wish to purchase is one way of knowing beforehand whether you’re buying new beds from the start.

Focusing on new lamps, end tables, and other decorative items first without checking out your beds and knowing your expenses on linens might upset the budget. Great comfortable beds will keep your guest coming back year after year. Other decorative items have little to do with booking and keeping your guest happy. An extra firm mattress is best because somebody can always soften it using mattress pads.
