3 Reasons Why Videos and Floor Plans are Necessary for a Vacation Rental

In the simplest answer possible……….. Yes
Why you ask?  Let’s start at the inception of your vacation plans. You and your family or friends have decided to plan a vacation to a destination where you plan on relaxing, having fun and hanging out together. This vacation will take some planning and organizing to find the perfect home that is in the right location, big enough to accommodate all of you,  comfortable and fit everyone’s budget. This is no small feat especially if the group is larger but even small groups of 4-6 can take some coordinating to find a vacation home where everyone is happy.

Step 1 Start the search. As you google different site you will find that many have photos, descriptions, and rates. That’s a great first start but remember there are several people in your group and all have different needs. Photos alone only show you how a room looks it does not show you the proximity of that room to bathrooms, living room, stairs within the home and other bedrooms. Why is that important? Elderly vacationers might have trouble with stairs and knowing this ahead of time would eliminate mobility problems. A video and a floor plan would make this easy to see and account for. But perhaps no one is elderly in your party but there may be infants. Parents generally want to be close to young children and knowing that bedrooms are next to each other provides that peace of mind. On the other hand,  teenagers who like to be up all night may give you a reason to want a bedroom on the opposite side of the home. Perhaps all this is in the property write up but who really reads all that information, who has time? A 90-second video will provide all that information clearly so you can find the best possible vacation rental.

Step 2.  Video time!  A 90-second video will provide all that information clearly so you can find the best possible vacation rental. Why is a video important? Lets look at a few examples.

a. Elderly vacationers might have trouble with stairs and knowing this ahead of time would eliminate mobility problems. A video and a floor plan would make this easy to see and account for. But perhaps no one is elderly in your party but there may be infants.

b. Parents generally want to be close to young children and knowing that bedrooms are next to each other provides that peace of mind.

c. On the other hand,  teenagers who like to be up all night may give you a reason to want a bedroom on the opposite side of the home.

Perhaps all this is in the property write up but who really reads all that information, who has time? A 90-second video will provide all that information clearly so you can find the best possible vacation rental for everyone!

Step 3. Floor Plan. Now you must be thinking how important are floor plans? You saw the video why a floor plan? Videos are a quick snaptour of the vacation home. 90 seconds does not allow for much time to really understand the layout of the vacation home. Think about it. You are going to be paying for a home that you have probably never stayed at before. You have worked hard to save up for this amazing vacation why leave things up to chance. A floor plan will not only show you the layout of the home but also the size of the rooms. So you will be able to tell which rooms are bigger and which are smaller and the layout of furniture. One added feature of a floor plan is you will also know where the fire extinguishers are located. Accidents can happen it’s good to be prepared and know where things are.

A video and a floor plan in addition to photos and a written description will provide you will all the information you will need to find the perfect vacation home for everyone. NomadnessRentals vacation homes offer floor plans and video tours. Find your perfect vacation getaway at NomadnessRentals.
