We are looking at a property there that looks like it has real potential as an STR vs. long term rental. I've been scouring the google this morning for any STR regulation info there and it doesn't look like there is any besides having a biz license so airbnb can collect tax. Would love to pick some brains of you smarty-pants locals or expert Birmingham investors!
I haven't done any. But the airbnbs online are very cheap so I wouldnt expect a huge return. That being said you probably have done better research on that aspect to know if it would work. I don't know of anything else required besides the license for the county off the top of my head.
Airbnb's work in the A sides of town. I have one each in vestavia,mountain Brook, and downtown.
the downtown one has very high turnover.
