Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best communities to purchase a vacation home in?

We are happy to tailor recommendations to you based upon your interests so please contact us for more information.

Can all properties in Orlando be used as a vacation rental?

No. Only certain neighborhoods/properties can be used as vacation rentals as they need to be authorized as “short-term rental zones”. 

Can I advertise the property myself on Airbnb/VRBO?

This is dependent upon the regulations of the community your home is located in, more commonly known as the Homeowner’s Association (HOA) by-laws. These documents will be specific to your neighborhood and you would need to verify whether Airbnb/VRBO is permitted.

In addition, using Global Vacation Rentals as your property management company means we advertise you on our website as well as our partner websites such as Airbnb, Vrbo, Marriott Homes & Villas, Air Canada + more!

What does the HOA fee cover?

This also varies from community to community depending on the cost of the HOA fee. Usually communities with higher HOA dues will offer access to better amenities and include services such as lawn care. Before you purchase a home, we recommend reading through the by-laws of the community and reviewing exactly what is included in the HOA fee so you have a full understanding. 

How much is the Tourist Development Tax (also known as Occupancy Tax, Rental Tax or Resort Tax)? 

The Tourist Development Tax for Osceola County (the vacation rental capitol) is currently 6%. For up to date percentages or more information you can visit the Tax Collector’s website. In most cases, the fee is passed onto the guest booking your home and collected by the property management company.
