Most efficient path to my goal?

10 Replies

Hey BP, I was looking for some help/opinions on getting to my financial goal through STR- AirbNb…

I have a goal of getting to $5000 a month in cash flow in the next 2-3 years. I have $60k in my savings…. I live in KC, should I look at buying STR here, or consider looking for properties near the beach?

From your experience, how would you efficiently get to $5000 a month cash flow in my situation? Do you have a STR that produces $5k+ a month? What does that deal look like?


I look forward to hearing from everyone!

You can do that with 1 larger cabin or beach house in the right market. (Smokies, Florida panhandle specifically) I’m sure there are other markets also.

If I were you I’d go ahead and buy a smaller property in one of the vacation markets. Maybe a 2/2. If you manage it right it will gross north of $50k/ year. Probably more around $60k. That should get you around $15-20k net. Rinse and repeat as you save your income to reinvest.

Get the biggest and nicest place you can afford in one of the vacation rental markets. Beach mountains, Lake etc.

One large property is easier to manage than 2 smaller ones and will likely do as good or better than 2 small cabins.

One or two of these type properties should get you to your goal.

I'm glad you chose STR's to increase cashflow, in my opinion they are giving the best COC right now! Your goal is very easily achievable. If you were to partner with someone you could possibly bring in even more. Let me know if you've got any questions.

Good luck!

 Hey Kyle thank you for your reply! I’m actually planning a vacation to Destin, and that is one of the markets I was looking in. I’d love to connect!

Really? That is so awesome to hear. Would it be okay if messaged you a couple more questions?

Thank you for your reply! I have a couple places in mind, do you mind if I message you?
