Why Rentals United is creating The World’s Top 50 Vacation Rental Property Manager List

In recent years, vacation rental property management has seen incredible progress. New companies are popping up next to the old players, while other players are consolidating and raising one funding round after another.

At the same time, this year has brought with it many challenges and none have been so big as the COVID-19 pandemic, which has sadly seen the attrition of some property management businesses.

Even with the pandemic bringing the world to a stand still, top property managers have continued to work tirelessly to push the vacation rental industry forward. They have provided a high-quality service on par with hotel standards in terms of consistency, cleaning and professionalism. They know how to take comfort and innovation to the next level.

We think that deserves some recognition. That is why Rentals United has expanded The World’s Top Vacation Rental Property Managers List from top 20 to a full Top 50! 

This prestigious list will give an overview of the biggest, fast-growing, tech-enabled companies that are redefining the future of the vacation rental property management industry.
