This is entirely up to you, but several considerations should be taken, including:
The number of acres you’re renting.
The number of other land owners near you who are renting their land for the same activities you are, and how much they are charging.
The quality of the pictures on your listing to show off the landscape and wildlife.
Whether your rental includes a dwelling, or guide services as well as the land rental.
The number of active bookings you currently have. A filled calendar might mean you’re not charging enough. An empty calendar, while other properties around you are booked solid probably means you’re charging too much.
All of these factors need to be considered when setting your own price.
Creating an account and listings on the website and offering your land for rent, and/or expert guide services is FREE!!
iRentLand takes 10% of the reservation total price to cover our expenses like payment processing fees, taxes, administrative costs, website maintenance, etc. For example, if your reservation total is $100/day, you will receive $90/day as a final payment.
If your booking includes a dwelling, iRentLand’s fee is 15% of the booking total to account for the additional occupancy taxes and fees. For example, if your booking includes a dwelling for $200/day, your payout will be $170/day.
Checks are mailed once a month within the first five business days of the month and will pay out any rental that concludes during the previous month. For example, a rental that goes from May 23 to May 28 would be paid by check in the first five business days of June. A rental that goes from May 30 to June 3 would be paid by check within the first five business days of July.
Please note that checks are cut during the first five business days of the month and will be sent first class mail by USPS. iRentLand does not control the amount of time it take for checks to arrive.
No. Part of the sign-up process is choosing which types of activities you want to offer. You can offer any combination of activities. For example, you may allow hunting and camping but not ATV, snowmobiling or fishing. Or you may allow camping and fishing but none of the other activities. Or you may allow just hunting. Any combination is acceptable with the only requirement being you need to offer at least one activity.
Land owners are responsible for knowing if they are legally able to hunt, snow mobile, ATV, camp or fish on their land. Part of the Terms & Conditions required for landowners to sign up requires them to acknowledge this.
Landowners are required to acknowledge in the Terms & Conditions that they have consulted with their insurance carrier regarding insurance coverage options and limitations that might exist. In the unlikely event of a claim or a dispute, any claims or disputes are to be settled between the land owners and renter(s), and their respective insurance carriers, and are not the responsibility of iRentLand.
Absolutely. Guide services enhance the experience of outdoor enthusiasts and help ensure they have the most enjoyable time possible.
There are tax considerations that should be made for guides, as guides are considered to be making self-employment income when they offer their services. Your rental will likely need to be considered a Schedule C rental for reporting on your personal income taxes.
iRentLand is not, and does not, give any tax advice, other than to recommend you consult a tax professional to ensure you are following all reporting requirements.
When offering your property for rent, if you intend to include optional guide services, be sure to check the “Guide Services Offered” button to let outdoor enthusiasts know why your rental might cost a little more, and allow them to find you when they filter their search to “include guided experiences”.
The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires US companies that process payments, including iRentLand LLC, to report gross earnings for all US users who earn over $20,000 and/or have 200+ transactions in the calendar year. If you exceed either IRS threshold in a calendar year, iRentLand LLC will issue you a Form 1099-K.
While this is an extremely unlikely occurrence, please immediately call local authorities and have them help resolve the problem right away if you notice this during the rental period. Then, please report this to iRentLand and we will investigate and potentially ban the renter. If you have any documentation, such as a police report or photos/videos of this, please include that in your communication to iRentLand. Our email address is email@example.com.
Though this situation is extremely unlikely, please consult your insurance company regarding reimbursement for potential damages to your property. It’s important to ask your insurance company questions like these before offering your land for rent. If any renter does cause damage to your property, please inquire with your renter regarding their Property Damage Liability Insurance coverage. They are required to have this type of insurance to rent your land.
You, as the landowner, are not able to cancel a reservation. Just like you wouldn’t appreciate it If you booked a hotel for a vacation and the hotel called you and said they canceled your reservation; landowners are expected to honor the reservations they take. In extremely rare and extenuating circumstances, this might need to happen (for example: if you sell the land before an already booked reservation takes place). We will work this out with you and the renter on a case-by-case basis, and you will need to provide documentation and return the full amount of the reservation.
Renters are also not permitted to cancel a reservation, however, they do have the option to communicate with you and request a change of dates. Approving this is entirely at your discretion. No refunds will be given.
If you choose to allow a renter to change the dates of their reservation, you may absolutely re-list the dates of their original reservation.
Land owners are required to upload a satellite photo of the entire property with boundaries marked. Stay within these boundaries. If you have any questions whatsoever about property lines, please ask the landowner before engaging in the activities of your rental. Other resources, such as apps like OnXHunt, or HuntWise are great resources for land boundary reference.
iRentLand fees to renters equal 20% of the rental price to cover our expenses like payment processing fees, taxes, administrative costs, website maintenance, etc.
iRentLand also has a “Land & Wildlife Preservation Fee” of a flat $5 per rental. We donate 100% of every penny of that to various non-profit groups that align with our values. For more information, please visit our “Giving Back” page. This fee is not taxed.
So for example, if you make a two day rental for $60/day you will be charged $120 for the rental, plus $24 (20%) in service fees, plus tax on those amounts, plus a flat $5 Land & Wildlife Preservation Fee which is not taxed.
Renters are required to acknowledge in the Terms & Conditions that they have consulted with their insurance carrier regarding insurance coverage options and limitations that might exist. Renters are also required to acknowledge that they have purchased and currently have Property Damage Liability Coverage before renting. In the unlikely event of a claim or dispute, any claims or disputes are to be settled between the land owners and renters, and their respective insurance companies and are not the responsibility of iRentLand LLC.
HOWEVER, you may communicate with the land owner through the messaging function within the website and request that they change the dates of your reservation. This is at the landowner’s sole discretion.
