Long-term rental VS short-term rental, which is the next Australian investment trend of real estate?

1

2If you have a vacation villa or an investment house which is often vacant, and you now want to use it for profits, then, rental mode is definitely the first question you need to consider.

Is it good to choose a long-term rental or a short-term rental? This troubled not only many tenants, but also many landlords. Which will be the better choice? Let us carry out the pros and cons of analysis.

 3

What is the long-term rental?

 Long-term rental, is also the traditional and the most common rental model. The literal understanding is the long-term lease of housing. In general, the landlords take months as units to collect fees from tenants. And in this common rental model, landlords and the tenants need to be sign an agreement contract.

In Australia, there is no legal requirement on the term of the lease,  however, the common term is usually based on 12 months, even though it can be adjusted according to the specific situation of tenants and landlords.

4

What is the short-term rental?

Short-term rental is a kind of rising trend in recent years, This kind of rental model is paid by the day. Because the short-term rental often takes days as units,  so it is also known as the daily rental.

The term of this kind of rental is not fixed, so it’s usually changeable from 1 to 90 days. The most common short-term rental platform is Airbnb.

Airbnb, which was founded in San Francisco in 2008, has expanded to 191 cities,  providing more than 2 million rental properties. The landlord can put his own house (or a room, or even just a sofa) on the website without being charged, indicating the available time, the requirements for customers and fees. Aribnb charges a 3% commission for each book and charges up to 12% from tenants.

At present, Australia has more than 70,000 properties on the Airbnb website for rental. Owners get profits though this kind of short-term rent.

Advantages of short-term Rent

Many landlords said that their 6-month income got through Airbnb was basically the double of traditional rental income. Thus, it is easy to see one of the most obvious advantages for short-term rental is more income.

Australia’s two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, are the world-famous tourist cities. There are many tourists. With the opening of Australian ten-year tourist visa, there must be more people coming to Australia for short trips.

6

However, the number of hotels in these two cities is far behind the number of tourists. The Bureau of Statistics suggested that the number of people for short-term visits / trips per year is as high as 8.35 million. And the accommodation needs mainly concentrate in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. As a result, Australia’s short-term rental market has a high occupancy rate. There is much potential in this market.

7

In addition, the other advantage of short rental is its flexibility. Assuming that you need to use the house one day, then you do not need to inform your tenant or the platform, you only need to leave the date unavailable on the website. And this is the convenience for many landlords who rent holiday house.

Disadvantages of the short-term rental

Every coin has two sides. When Short-term rental brings more income for landlords, it’s disadvantages come hand in hand.

Firstly, not all kinds of properties are suitable for short-term rental. Those properties which are far from the urban areas or far from coast lines can hardly find a way to get more money though short-term rental. After all, the mainstream for short-term rental is holiday crowds, and the urban area which has convenient transportation and the beautiful seaside, are the first choice for holiday people.

8

Secondly, the landlords need to pay more funds and labor for short-term rental. Under the long-term rental mode, the landlord can lease the house without  any furniture or decoration. But the short-term rental is different, in addition to commonly used furniture such as refrigerators, washing machines, beds, sofas, tables and chairs, the landlord also need to provide customers pots and pans, toilet paper, tableware, drying racks, towels and other daily necessities.

The landlords also should bear the responsibilities for many services such as cleaning, wash bed sheets and others.

The third disadvantage of the short-term rental is that the risks to be taken by the landlord will be greater. In the case of a long-term rental, the landlord will sign a residential lease agreement with the client, while the landlord can purchase Landlord Insurance and Home Insurance at the same time. But all these are not applicable for short-term lease.
9

Although in this model, the landlord can have more flexibility and has the right to ask the tenant to leave immediately without any notification before. But at the same time, this behavior is defined by many insurance companies as business activities. Therefore, short-term insurance can not be comprehensive. Common short-term rental insurance does not include public liability. If the tenant damaged the public facilities, the landlord could not get compensation through insurance.

And finally,  and most importantly. The biggest disadvantage of short-term rental is that there is a legal problem in itself. Under the current conditions, the short rental model is still in the gray area of the law, and there is no clear legal provisions to regulate it. Many tenants engaged in long rents or even short rents, and release the house secretly.

10

In addition, the property management of the apartment building has the right to formulate the relevant short-term rental requirements. A spokesman for the Australian Property Management Association said that many property management companies have received complaints from the landlord that more and more short-term rental will bring noise, personal safety and other issues. Therefore, the property company has the right to manage the short-term rental landlords.

长租VS短租,谁才是澳洲房产的下一个投资趋势?!

1

2如果你拥有一套度假房,亦或是投资房。常常空置,而你现在,想要将其用来进行盈利,出租他人。那么,短租还是长租,肯定是你需要考虑的首要问题。

租房是长租好,还是短租好?这个困扰了许多房客,也困扰了许多房东的经济问题,究竟该怎么抉择?让我们来进行利弊分析。

3

什么是长租

长租,也是传统意义上最常见的租房模式。从字面上理解就是房屋的长期租赁。一般来说,房东以月为单位,向房客收取费用。而常见的租房模式需签订协议合同。

在澳洲,出租的租约没有法定的期限,但市场上,基本都是按照12个月起。根据租客和房东的具体情况可以随时调整。

4

什么是短租

短租,是近年来逐渐兴起的一种租房模式。是一种按天计费的租房方式。因为短租多以天为单位,按天计费,故短租又被称为日租。

短租的期限多不固定,通常指代1到90天的出租时限。而最常见的短租平台,则是Airbnb。

Airbnb于2008年成立于美国旧金山,目前已扩展到191座城市,提供的出租物业超过200万个。房东可以免费把自己的房子(或一个房间,甚至一张沙发)挂在网站上,注明可入住的时间段,入住旅客的要求及收费等。Aribnb对每笔预定收取3%的提成,并向租客收取最多12%的抽成。

目前澳洲有70,000多个物业在Airbnb的网站上出租,通过短租,来获取利润.

5

短租的优势

很多短租的房客都表示,他们通过Airbnb短租平台,6个月赚来的租金收入基本上能达到传统租赁价格的2倍。因而,不难看出,短租的一个最明显的优势便是,它能为房东带来更多的收入。

澳洲最大的两大城市悉尼和墨尔本,皆是世界文明的旅游城市。游客众多。加上澳洲十年多次往返签证的开放,势必也会让更多的人来到澳洲进行短途的旅游和休息。

6

然而,这两座城市的酒店数量却远远跟不上游客的数量。统计局表示,每年这样的短期访问/旅游人数高达835万人次。而这些住宿需求主要集中在悉尼和墨尔本以及布里斯班这三大城市。因此,澳洲的短租市场入住率高。市场发展空间较大。

7

除此以外,短租的另一个优势便是其灵活性。假设某天你需要使用房屋,那么,你不需要通知你的租客或者平台协商沟通,你只需要在出租的日期上将改天停止对外出租即可。而这一点,为许多出租度假屋的房东带来了便利。

短租的劣势 凡事皆是有利有弊。在获得更高收入的同时,短租的劣势也随之而来。

首先,并不是所有的物业都适合做短租。那些距离市区较远的郊区,以及偏远地区非海岸线上的物业,想要通过短租获得更多的租金可谓是非常困难。毕竟,短租的主流群体便是度假人群,而交通便利的市区和环境优美的海边,才是度假人士的首选之地。

8

其次,房东短租情况下需要付出的资金和劳动比长租要多得多。长租模式下,房东完全可以将空房出租,不需要配备任何家具,也无需装修。但是短租则不同,除了常用的冰箱、洗衣机、床、沙发、桌椅等寻常家具外,房东还需要为入住客户提供如锅碗瓢盆,卫生纸,餐具,晾衣架,毛巾等日用品。

除此之外,房东还要承担打扫卫生、布置房间、清洗床单被套等类似酒店管理的清洁服务。

短租模式的第三个劣势在于,房东所承担的风险将会更大。长租状况下,房东将和客户签署住宅租赁协议,同时,房东可以购买房东保险(Landlord Insurance)和房屋保险(Home)。而这些,在短租情况下统统都不适用。9虽然这种模式下,房东掌握了更多的灵活性,有权在不提前通知租客的前提下让其马上搬离。但同时,因为这种行为被很多保险公司定义为商业活动。因此,短租保险没法做到全面。常见的短租保险并不包括公共责任险(Public Liability)。如果租客损坏了公共设施等,房东无法通过保险获得赔偿。

而最后,也是最重要的一点。短租模式最大的劣势在于,其本身存在法律问题。目前条件下,短租模式还处在法律的灰色地带,并没有明确的法律条文对其进行规范。许多租客在进行长租或者在自身扔为短租租客的条件下,再讲房屋/房间的转租。

10

除此之外,公寓大楼的物业管理也有权制定相关的短租规定。澳洲物业管理协会的发言人称,很多物业管理公司都接到了房东的投诉,认为越来越多的短租会带来噪音、人身安全、背包客聚集等问题。因此,公寓物业有权对短租的房东进行管理和要求。
