Frequently Asked Questions

How much do short term property management companies charge in Gulf Shores?

The typical fee for short term rental property management in Gulf Shores can range from 15-30% depending on who you go with and whether they offer partial or full-service management. As an example, some larger national companies only offer partial management at a reduced rate, which requires more effort on your part coordinating with cleaning crews, restocking supplies, changing linens, maintenance, etc.💪 As a full service management company, we use the mentality of low-effort, high-reward for our owners.

Are short term vacation rentals allowed in Gulf Shores, Alabama?

Yes, however, there are some rules and guidelines to be aware of. First, you'll need to determine whether or not you have the right zoning for short-term rental.  Next you will need to submit a business license application even if you are out of the city’s corporate limits but still in police jurisdiction.  All short-term rentals require a building inspection every three years so you will need to contact the building department to set that up as well.
✍️ As your property management company, we’ll work with you to ensure all necessary steps are taken and your property remains in compliance.

Do I need to collect and remit taxes for short term rentals in Gulf Shores?

Before collecting any short-term rental taxes from your guests, you need to be aware of whether any taxes have already been collected for you.  If you hire a management company, you need to be sure that they are collecting and remitting taxes on your behalf. If you leave a management company’s rental program, then you become responsible for collecting and remitting lodging taxes back to State, County, and City.
🏡 As a state licensed property management company, we will collect and remit the accommodations taxes on your behalf.
