The range that condos rent for represent a variety of properties. They vary not only size and location but also in position within the building. For example a 2 bed 2 bath on the first floor overlooking the parking lot may rent for $900.00 per week where the one on the 5th floor looking directly out to the Gulf may rent for $1600.00 per week.

Another example is two different condos both looking directly out on the gulf from the 3 floor. One condo is on a large sandy beach within walking distance of a well known beach area that has all the resort hotels, restaurants and beach shopping. This unit rents for $1800.00 per week in season. The other condo similar in size and with a beach view....is on a smaller remote beach and not within walking distance of restaurants, beach shopping etc....may only rent for $1,000.00 per week in season.

The difference is the vacationing public. MOST families want to be where activities and dining are abundant. They are more willing to pay higher rates for the atmosphere of the area. Whereas other vacationers may be retired and are looking for more remote locations that are less expensive and quieter. Both condos will be rented. Both will be busy. One just has a much greater potential for earnings.
