SCOTTSDALE HOMES IDEAL FOR VRBO
Homes in Scottsdale for sale considered ideal for VRBO use. All are single family homes. With a private pool and NO HOA. Scottsdale is a great location for a VRBO rental investment. Scottsdale vacation homes are known to attract many travelers and tourists.
Why are VRBO and Airbnb rentals here so popular? Just outside of Phoenix, Scottsdale is a hotbed for people looking for a weekend getaway full of mountain biking, golf, and hiking. And while cities across the country are creating tighter rules and outlawing short term rentals altogether, Arizona has gone in the other direction—it signed a law in 2016 that prevents cities in the state from banning short-term rentals. That legal protection combined with vacation rental demand makes Scottsdale the perfect place for investors.
The City of Scottsdale defines Vacation rentals or Short term rentals as dwelling units offered for a rental term of less than 30 days to transient guests. They are considered the same as traditional dwelling units and are allowed by-right in all residential districts, subject to the following:
- All Dwelling units and any accessory guest houses must be rented or offered for rent together, and may not be rented or offered for rent independently.
- All Dwelling units, including Vacation Rentals and Short term rentals shall have a maximum family size of 6 adults (and their related dependent children).
- Non-residential uses, including retail, restaurant, banquet space, event center, bed & breakfast, or other similar use is prohibited.
- All Vacation Rentals and Short term rentals have a Transaction Privilege Sales Tax and a Transient Tax liability. A Transaction Privilege Sales Tax license with the State of Arizona Department of Revenue is required. Be sure to list Scottsdale (SC) as a region code on your license. Please visit www.aztaxes.gov to register.
- All rental units, including vacation and short term rentals, shall be registered with Maricopa County, in accordance with ARS 33-1902.
The owner of a vacation rental shall provide to the City of Scottsdale the name and contact information of a person designated as an emergency contact, as well as contact information for owner or owner’s designed for responding to complaints.
