Are there any restrictions on the type of property I can list on Airbnb or VRBO in St. Pete?

St. Pete allows various property types to be listed as short-term rentals, including apartments, condos, and houses. However, compliance with local zoning laws and possible HOA rules is crucial.

What are the best areas in St. Pete for investing in a short-term rental property?

"The team at Vello is simply the best. In my experience, they are responsive, professional, and reliable. Their customer service for guests is that of a 5 star hotel (even better) and they take care of my property like it’s their own. Recently, my home took some storm damage and Vello not only fixed the issues promptly but also rented it out again within three days. I could not be happier or recommend a better team and company to trust with your rental property."
