It's not weird to love Portland. One of the food capitals of the United States and located close to some of the Pacific Northwest's most stunning state parks, tourists prefer to stay in vacation rentals when they make Oregon's largest city their home base. If you own a Portland vacation home, renting to visitors could be a profitable path to keeping your home in great shape while you're not around.
However, short-term rentals are somewhat of a fraught topic in Portland. The city has strict regulations against long-term vacation rental use; homeowners must occupy their property for 270 days of the year to rent on a short-term basis. Permits for accessory short-term rentals differ by the number of rooms in a home, and properties with 6 bedrooms or more are not eligible for STR use. Check with the city to find out which permit you'll need to apply for and what additional measures you'll have to take to make your home compliant. Guest-facing taxes on vacation rentals consist of a 1 percent Oregon, 5.5 percent Multnomah County, and 6 percent Portland tax.
When you're not at home in the Rose City, trust a thoroughly local, full-service Portland vacation rental management company to look after your home (and earn you profits, too). Not only are we based in Portland, but we hire—not contract—local housekeepers, maintenance staff, and operations support teams to care for your home. If you or your guests need help, your local operations manager is available 24/7 to assist. We're here to make managing the everyday and the unusual stress free.
