Case Studies

The best backyard investment

Sam and Ian were looking to increase the earning power of their backyard “casita”. After a long term tenant decided to move out, we took the opportunity to upgrade the casita space and list it on Airbnb.

Since then, Sam and Ian are on track to gross over 300% more in annual gross earnings vs the traditional long term method. They were also able to increase the equity of their property by investing some earnings into upgrading the casita and their landscaping.

According to Airdna’s occupancy estimate, the property is also beating the market average of 59% by 27% YTD.

About Isaac

Isaac is an Arizona native with a diverse set of interests. Isaac’s career started off with a sales and operational role at PepsiCo. Isaac later moved to a marketing role which opened the door to a better understanding of consumer needs and wants. After a successful 5 year tenure at PepsiCo Isaac got the itch to dive into the ‘peer sharing’ space at a tech startup.

During his time at this startup, Isaac began to have a deep understanding of the peer-sharing space. After purchasing his first investment property and ‘house hacking’ his duplex via Airbnb, he opened up his property management services and started taking on clients.

Isaac’s main focus is to utilize his short term rental knowledge to help create passive income for investors and consult people through their short term rental journey. Being a STR real estate investor can come with a lot of angst and uncertainty. Isaac and the Strasa team are eager to partner with you and make the STR journey a fun and lucrative one.
