Fort Lauderdale is among the least seasonal short term rental markets in the country due to its year round weather conditions and continuous leasure demand. However, during the winter months there is an increase in leisure travel demand both domestically and internationally. The high season begins at the beginning of the holiday season in December and continues until Memorial Day. There is also a drop in demand during the hurricane season, when occupancy rates are typically the lowest. Due to the increasing number of corporate guests and relocations to South Florida, many hosts have seen success doing longer stays during the hurricane season to maintain occupancy.
Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals must be registered with the city on a yearly basis. You need to pay a $350 registration fee for up to 4 rental units under the same roof. Also, vacation rental operators should make sure they are current with their State/Local licenses and tax requirements. Each vacation rental property should meet minimum housing and life safety standards. For any questions about the Fort Lauderdale vacation rental license you can visit the city’s website or contact us.
