Why does Rentals United create The World’s Top 50 Vacation Rental Property Managers list?

Over the years, the vacation rental industry has grown exponentially and made incredible progress. New companies are popping up next to the old players, while other players are consolidating and raising one funding round after another.

While the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect our everyday lives, the vacation rental industry has managed to continue to thrive. Of course, there are still challenges, as the industry goes through further consolidation and attempts to deal with the attrition of numerous property management businesses. 

The Top 50 list is here to celebrate those top property managers who have continued to work tirelessly to push the vacation rental industry forward. But also to help the industry document and understand the landscape that has emerged in the property management markets over the past year.

Last year, we expanded the World’s Top Vacation Rental Property Managers List to a full Top 50 and intend to continue with this number.  So if you think your property management company is in that echelon make sure you apply for the World’s Top 50 Property Management Companies list 2022.

Why should you apply?

Rentals United’s Top Vacation Rentals Property Managers is known to many in the vacation rental industry and is synonymous with business success and entrepreneurship. 

With over 11,000 views on the blog article, extensive press coverage and continued shares across social media, this particular list gets a lot of attention. Last year it grew exponentially, and this year we are expecting similar results. 

This is an excellent benefit for those who make the Top 50 list! Not only does it offer a fantastic free PR avenue for managers looking to recruit more owners and showcase their professionalism, but it also provides your company with an increasing online presence, helps to grow your reputation and develop your vacation rental brand.
