In the dynamic world of short-term rentals (STRs), the need for specialized appraisal tools has become increasingly apparent. Standard 1007 forms, commonly used for Investment Property appraisals, fall short in addressing the unique aspects of STRs and pose a significant compliance risk. Recognizing this gap, we have developed a customized appraisal form designed specifically for the STR market, STRpro.

Why Specialized STR Appraisals?
Short-term rental properties operate in a market that’s different from traditional real estate. Factors like seasonal demand, local tourism trends, and varying occupancy rates are crucial in determining their value. Traditional appraisal forms are not equipped to account for these variables and many others, leading to inaccuracies and potential compliance issues within the reports. This is where our specialized STR appraisal form steps in, offering a solution tailored to meet these unique challenges.

We also prioritize risk mitigation, adding a layer of protection against loan default and other compliance related issues.
