Why are yurts a great long-term investment?

Why buy a yurt? Many of our customers would consider themselves yurt enthusiasts – drawn to their comfort, charm, and aesthetics. People around the globe look forward to their yurt getaways. But another reason is that they can be excellent investments. Yurts are durable, affordable, and easily rentable. When used as vacation rentals, they can earn back their cost quickly.

Potential to Earn Income through the Sharing Economy

Yurts are perennially popular on rental sites. Yurts are comfortable for all and can be placed in remote spaces for a truly unique vacation experience. Investment in a yurt allows your family plenty of time to enjoy your new connection to nature. And when you’re not using it, you can bring in extra cash by hosting guests from all over the world.

Resell Your Yurt if Needed

There is a strong demand for yurts. Used yurts can be very difficult to find on second party sites such as Craigslist because they often sell quickly after being listed. If you decide to sell your property and take down your yurt, chances are you will be able to sell it for a sizeable portion of its original price.

Quick Return on Investment (ROI)

Investment in a yurt is smart because it can bring a quick ROI. Guests have been willing to pay $60 or more for yurt accommodations on the weekdays, and up to $260 on weekends and holidays.

Most people find they can erect yurts on their own, cutting costs. Even if you select to have a contractor add electricity, sewer access, and other interior features, your final cost will probably be far lower than with a traditional structure.
