Why consider a vacation rental for my property?

In one word: ROI (is that a word?). Short-term rentals consistently deliver significantly higher revenue than conventional long-term tenant leasing. As of 2019, annual vacation rental revenue in the U.S. is at $14.8 billion and averaging an annual growth rate of 6.4%. Over 50% of travelers now equally consider a vacation rental with a traditional hotel when planning their travel. Millennials, who are the largest vacation rental market demographic at 40%, are predicted to spend $1.4 trillion on travel in 2019. The online vacation rental marketplace, along with the “sharing” economy, has become a true disruptor of the traditional hotel and hospitality industry. All this and more points to a booming vacation rental industry that is one of the most exciting growth areas for real estate investment. This is providing many investors in this business a significant advantage, with net income often being 50% to 100% higher than traditional lease arrangements.

How it Works

Your Home. Their Home. Our Home.™

Get It Out There

Using our PMS (Property Management Software), we will list your home on multiple channels, including Airbnb, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, VRBO as well as our own direct website. This maximizes your exposure to travelers from many different areas. Our dynamic pricing software is continually analyzing events across the local region as well as monitoring hotel bookings to set and update nightly rates to keep you perfectly priced in your market.

Stay Connected

You will be given a personal online portal to view in real-time all of your bookings and revenue as well as to be able to reserve the property for yourself if you so choose. By the 10th of each month, you will receive an automatic direct deposit of funds into your bank account for the previous month along with a detailed, professional owner’s statement.

Sit Back and Relax

You will have no out-of-pocket expenses and no sign-up fees–a small annual linens and amenities fee will come out of your first deposit and we retain a commission on each booking. Our annual contracts have a 60-day exit clause, so you don’t have to fear being stuck long-term with an arrangement you are not happy with. We will handle photos and listing the property and once it’s listed, we will manage the entire guest process along with coordinating maintenance and cleaning of the home. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the income! Contact us today to discuss how we can help you make the most out of your investment.
