Cape Cod Rental Essentials: Cost & Checklist Guide.

Updated: Mar 6

The Checklist: Tailoring Your Home for Vacationers

Very often ProHost™ is supporting those who are early in their Cape Cod vacation rental venture. Therefore, we provide homeowners with guidance to ensure their vacation home meets the high expectations of Cape Cod guests. Our guidance includes a comprehensive checklist of essential items across various rooms in the home, and outdoor spaces, ensuring comfort and convenience for guests. The flexibility of our checklist accommodates different homeowner needs, allowing them to mark items they already have, plan to purchase, or do not need, making it a personalized tool for preparing your property. We often take it a step further by pre-filling the checklist to the best of our ability before encouraging homeowners to fill in the blanks.

Cost Calculator: Streamlining Your Budget

Accompanying the checklist is a cost calculator that simplifies budgeting for your vacation home setup. By inputting the items you intend to purchase, their quantities, and unit prices, the calculator provides an estimated total cost, including Massachusetts sales tax. This feature aids in financial planning, helping you to allocate resources wisely and avoid unnecessary expenses.

Advantages for Homeowners

Using the checklist and calculator offers multiple benefits:

  • Efficiency: Saves time and effort in preparing your home for rental.

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Helps in budgeting and identifying areas where you can save money.

  • Customization: Allows for a tailored approach to setting up your vacation home based on existing furnishings and personal preferences.

  • Progress Tracking: Facilitates the management of your home's readiness for guests through the "Delivered" and "Installed" status columns.
