This post is a tribute to the people who worked very hard for 2 days at the VRMA International 2018 – the n#1 Vacation Rental Conference held in Las Vegas this year. We feel that the vendors at the conference hardly get the limelight they deserve… so let us say “Well done for your energy and passion!”. And if you haven’t yet checked out what they offer, this post may also come as a friendly nudge to do so! Lastly: congrats also to our team for photo-bombing all the pics! haha! #loveyourteam

A giant in the vacation rental industry, HomeAway has been making bold changes to the platform in 2016. The results in terms of profit have been incredible: HomeAway made more profit in the last quarter of 2016 as it did in the whole of 2015! With all these changes affecting the way PM and owners have historically worked with HomeAway, the company is often organising local workshops, helping shed the light on how the platform now works, from guest stats to booking models, costs and what affects the algorithm. The last one of those was on the 24th of Feb 2017 in the very cool TSociety venue in Barcelona. HomeAway kindly invited Rentals United to present alongside top managers in the HomeAway group.

It would hardly be news to state that our vacation rental industry is booming and attracting many new players every year. What hasn’t been attempted until now however is to produce a map of how all the old and new services available to property managers and owners fit together. After spending a year researching service companies in the vacation rental industry and producing the very popular “Who’s Who of the vacation Rental World” we can confidently say that we came up with such a map. We hope you will find it useful in trying out new services to help you with both the management of vacation rentals and the guest experience.
