A big question many have on their mind when they are researching everything about camping in Iceland is where to camp , on and off season. Well, you can all relax for there are so many campsites all around Iceland. Even the all year around campsites are increasing every year.

A B.C. business wants to alleviate the pressure many people may feel to book summer campsites long before the camping season even gets underway — by having landowners rent out private land to campers.

Campertunity's co-founders, Guita Yazdani and Nora Lozano, started an online platform where people can book camping spots on private property.

"We're bringing camping into the shared economy," said Yazdani. "It's like anything where you share your home, [or] you share cars. Now you're sharing camping."

Yazdani hopes that Campertunity will help relieve some of the frustration people feel when provincial campsites get booked up quickly.

Airbnb-type rentals a $70M business in N.S. last year: StatsCan

Airbnb-type rentals a $70M business in N.S. last year: StatsCan Numbers released by Statistics Canada peg the revenue generated last year by private short-term rentals such as Airbnb in Nova Scotia at about $70.8 million, a 45 per cent increase over 2017. For the first time, the agency analyzed data gathered from online booking sites that advertise short stays, such as Airbnb, Kijiji, VRBO and HomeAway, as well as information collected through surveying Canadians and tax forms. It found a huge annual increase in the number of listings. Across the country, revenues went up 35 per cent between 2017 and 2018 with a total of $2.76 billion coming through the sites last year.

Similarly, other people tend to rent the house with the style of decoration they are in favor of. Finally, renting a house can have more flexibilities. To sum up, renting or buying a house completely depends on what the person pursues. If people like new challenges, they probably would rent a house.

Succeeding in the business of rental properties requires a certain set of skills and desires, and making a living isn’t always as easy as Tenants will certainly not care for your property as much as you would if you were to live there. Even nice people can surprise you in a tenant/landlord relationship.

Provincial campsites snapped up quickly

"It's like a bombardment every year," she said. "You have to [book] your campsite months in advance."

She believes this frustration will draw more people to booking camping spots on private land. Campsites on Campertunity run up to $120 per night. Provincial campsites fees range anywhere between $5 to $120 per night.

Starting Jan. 2 each year, provincial campsites in B.C. can be booked four months in advance, but often get snapped up quickly.

"At campsites it's like buying concert tickets," said Yazdani.

"Canada is the second largest country in the world and it's this hard to get into our nature? It just seems wrong. So we're bringing camping into the shared economy."

Prairie landlords cheer rent market stability

Prairie landlords cheer rent market stability CALGARY - Four years after an oil price crash that's been blamed for more than 40,000 oilpatch job cuts in Western Canada, stability is returning to the residential rental market. Apartment owners including Boardwalk REIT and Mainstreet Equity Corp., along with smaller operators and industry observers, say that people moving to the region, and generally lower unemployment rates on the Prairies are driving vacancy rates down and allowing rents to rise.

Instead of hitting their head against the wall when their boss makes a mistake, they can take charge and do it their own way. Whether you’re interested in starting an online business or a brick-and-mortar company, LegalZoom can help you choose the right business structure, serve as your

Rental Property as Business . Although renting even a single unit can be a business , in some cases, you could have trouble showing that your management activities (or those of an agent) are sufficiently continuous, systematic, and regular if you own only one or a few units.

Online listings

Landowners can list their properties on the Campertunity website along with the amenities they provide, and users can browse for a spot by location and pay per night.

Last summer, when the business launched, it only had a dozen bookings. Today, there are 300 users and 32 listings, said Yazdani.

"We definitely expect more people to sign up this summer, especially since it's already spring, and camping is on the mind of many outdoor enthusiasts."

Promoting agri-tourism

Yazdani hopes that the business will increase interest in agricultural tourism.

Some of the properties listed on the site are owned by farmers and ranchers. The income they generate from rentals can help sustain their land, she said.

"It's kind of a way of having people learn about farm life and it's promoting agri-tourism."

The province's Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) rules say that agricultural tourism is permitted on ALR land as long as it doesn't change the principal use of the property and doesn't have a negative impact on farming operations.

The rules also stipulate that accommodation on the land must be short-term and is limited to a maximum of ten tents or sleeping units.
