The State of Vacation Rentals

We have been working all year on launching new programs for our members who manage vacation rentals. Our new Vacation Rental Council Committee coordinates resources, benefits, education, and advocacy efforts related to REALTOR® brokerages that have vacation manage vacation rentals.

We're excited to launch our first event of the Vacation Rental Council and are bringing in great speakers to kick this council off. This event is featuring:

Wendy Northcross
CEO of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce
Wendy will give an update about the state of tourism on Cape Cod, which includes shark updates, but also, where and how the Chamber markets and the demographics of the visitor market for you to use that insight in your vacation rental marketing plans for 2020.

Brian Lynch
Massachusetts Department of Revenue
Brian will be here to go over any questions you have about the registration and tax remittance process of short-term rentals with the Department of Revenue. Come get your questions answered.

Jonathan Schreiber and Ryan Castle
MAR Attorney and CCIAOR CEO
Join our two resident experts on the short-term rental law where they will go over what you need to know about the regulations on the short-term rental law from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue and the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development - including, the 5 things you may not have known under the law you need to be doing and probably are not.
