As we enter November here in Ecuador.
And all the leaves on the trees are exactly the same color as they were the rest of the year…
As the owner of vacation rentals on the coast of Ecuador I’m being constantly reminded of one fact as the email requests start to flood in.
That the demand for home rentals on the coast of Ecuador really spikes upward from late December to early April when all the folks from the northern hemisphere try to escape the winter.
The difference in demand is huge and shouldn’t be overlooked if you own a rental on the coast of Ecuador.
You really can charge double, maybe even triple the rent that you could during the rest of the year.
And you’ll get it! Just be patient.
Especially if you market to both Ecuadorians (who also want to be on the coast more in those months due to the nicer weather) and English-speakers (escaping the winter up north).
A lot of renters will want to enter starting in November and drag into the high season paying the same low-season prices, or pay you months in advance for the whole high season at a discounted rate.
Don’t let them, or you will be leaving serious mu-la on the table.
