Rental Property Investment with Shipping Containers
Shipping containers are an excellent opportunity to develop a rental property investment strategy with low overhead, low environmental impact, and customized units built according to the needs of you or your guests. Picture yourself in a few short months, four 20 ft container homes placed on a nice plot of land just north of town, all four listed on AirBnB and other vacation rental websites, two inquiries just came in to fill out the entire month of June’s weekend (premium) rates. With the popularity of the container and tiny home lifestyle continuing to grow traction, your rental properties listed will have excellent initial appeal, increasing clicks and interest on your property. Our team of container technicians know how to make use of the space in the best possible way while taking you and your guest’s considerations into account. The project we executed in the photo below is slightly larger than the example above, but you can see the concept and execution of the space we are helping build up near canyon lake to the North of Austin.
Why Shipping Containers?
We may be partial in this particular regard, but shipping containers provide a wide range of benefits over something already built or a new construction project for a short term rental investment. As with many construction projects you may run into:
- Longer Build Times
- Many Different Subcontractors
- Old/Decaying Property
- High Upkeep Costs
- Limited Customization Potential
Using shipping containers for a rental property investment allows you to acquire the unit much more quickly as our build times average about 3 weeks. A traditional build could take several months or more. Once you put your deposit down with Bob’s you will only have to work with one entity, keeping communication errors to an absolute minimum. Since we build your property as ordered, you do not have to worry about upkeep costs and problems with an old or decaying property. The icing on the rental property investment cake is the customization potential we provide to you here at Bob’s. From upgraded fixtures to rooftop party decks, we have solutions to fit your needs. It is a no brainer, choose Bob’s Containers.
The Lily Pad
The Lily Pad, a shipping container unit for rent in southeast Ohio runs for a few hundred a night and has a similar look and feel to our Joshua Model found on the site. Paired with a deck and pergola this unit grabs the user’s attention and functions quite closely to a space with larger square footage and open footprint. Keep an eye out for a similar unit to pop up on our site soon as we are developing some of the more customized features of the Lily Pad into a unit of our own. Units like the Lily Pad being listed at nightly rates allow you to “try before you buy” to experience the container lifestyle in the frame of a short term rental investment.
