Frequently Asked Questions

"I'm nervous about listing my property as a short term rental.  I've read horror stories!"

When third party booking sites like AirBnB and VRBO began to gain traction in the economy many hotel chains started smear campaigns to spread a lot of negative information.  In our experience, hosting more than 1,000 guests from across the world, we've never had a guest leave a negative impact on a property.  In fact, many services such as AirBnB actually carry a blanket policy covering up to $1 million in damages for their hosts.  Combined with our careful vetting of potential tenants, Orange Court actually believes short term rentals show less wear than long term rentals!


"How could my property show less wear as a short term rental, than a traditional rental?"

This is a great question, and an easy one to answer; on average an Orange Court property is viewed and cleaned 3 times per week.  That's a LOT of eyes and upkeep on your property.  Additionally, most guests are looking for a home base to sleep for the night, your property is not LIVED in like it would be with a long term tenant.


"Furnishing my place would be expensive and I'm just not equipped to lay out that much cash right now, any ideas?"

We understand that this can be a barrier for many potential clients.  Orange Court is prepared, and we're willing to work with you on options that don't require you to layout any upfront cash.


"How do I know my property will succeed as a short term rental?"

Orange Court is very selective about the properties that they take on, we won't work with just any property.  If we reached out to you, rest assured we've already done quite a bit of leg work and have found your property to meet the criteria.  On top of that, Orange Court doesn't roll the dice on a property succeeding.  Using our proprietary formula we grow your listing like a new born baby, stacking 5 star reviews and launching you to the top of search results!


"What about Insurance?"

Airbnb carries a $1 million dollar policy for its hosts, as do our other listing partners.  Rest assured, you're covered.


"OK, what sort of occupancy rate should I expect?"

Orange Court's properties generally see an average occupancy rate of 87%, which translates to roughly 26 booked days out of 30.  The more your place is booked, the more money you make!  There's nothing more expensive than a vacancy!


"Is the market becoming over-saturated?"

Kentucky tourism has increased 15% each year since 2015, and Louisville hosts roughly 24 million visits annually with an economic impact of $1.6 Billion.  There is still plenty of that pie to be had. 


"How do you determine pricing?"

Orange Court uses a proprietary system that is geared toward increasing search rankings within short term rental booking sites.  Our intent is to quickly grow your listing by maximizing occupancy and generating 5-star reviews.


"This sounds great, but why wouldn't I just do this myself?"

You certainly could, but consider that for just 30% of your earnings that Orange Court does the following:  Markets and manages your property on multiple platforms, partners with short term rental data providers to maximize your daily pricing and occupancy rate, manages your bookings and provides concierge services for your guests, all while cleaning your property multiple times per week saving you many hours per week.
