One of the best locations that is across the street from the Waldorf Astoria resort hotel is the Tennis Villas gated community.  This is one of my favorite communities as it offers beautiful Mediterranean style townhouses that typically have nice open floor plans and nice finishes to them.  One of the biggest trends in this community is to buy homes in this community and then do short term rentals since the rental industry has boomed recently.  That's why when you look at what is available in the Tennis Villas you will see a lot of rental properties that are offering these short term rental opportunities.  The best time to rent out these homes is during the high season summer months which consists of June, July and August.  During these months a lot of

First, figure out the current value of the home.  This will be important to establish a fair market value
