Which Rental Program is Right For You?

The ERA Rental Program Options

  1. Short-term Rentals (2-180 nights)
    A short-term rental is typically for those guests wanting a vacation getaway or winter haven. This options provides the greatest level of flexibility and profitability and if the property is located within the City of Fernandina Beach, requires a Resort Rental Dwelling Permit and a qualifying zoning (Call our office for details).
  2. Extended Stay Rentals (28-180 nights)
    Listing your home as an extended stay rental will appeal to customers who love long trips and want to spend 28 or more nights as a home away from home. This option does not require a Resort Rental Dwelling Permit regardless of its location.
  3. Extended Stay Leased Furnished (181+ nights)
    Allowing either your Short-term or Extended Stay property to extend into this option is popular for guests desiring to split residency, have a home during construction of their new home or other 6 month or longer visits. Again, this option does not require a Resort Rental Dwelling Permit regardless of its location however, will require a Lease agreement with the tenant versus a rental agreement and is governed differently through our office. (Ask your Homeowner Specialist for more details on how this works)
  4. Long-term Leased Rentals Unfurnished (1+ year)
    When you list your home in the Long-term Rental program, your tenant will be looking to lease an unfurnished home for at least 1 year. The Long-term leased properties are managed through our separate department by a licensed manager. Since leases are required, special laws and processes must be followed to be compliant. (Ask our Long-Term Rental Manager, Chuck Lynch for more details)
