Things are changing and evolving in the economy, and with rising rents and fluctuation in the real estate industry, it was bound to trickle down into the STR market.
This week Sonder, one of the biggest short-term rental companies in the world, announced it is cutting 20% of its workforce.
On this edition of STR Conversations, Eric and I walk you through Sonder's announcement, their first-quarter losses, and the reality of the over-leveraged master leasing model in a post-Covid market.
We discuss what we believe the forecast will be for the STR industry as the crowds return to travel with the current economic correction filtering into cost-of-living increases across the board.
Listen in to learn how to position yourself to ride the waves. We’ll offer insight into how to take advantage of the opportunities in real estate and diversify your income streams to handle any season and situation in your STR business. Plus, the two places that are always worth investing in, no matter the economy.
