VRBO, or Vacation Rentals by Owner, is an online rental marketplace that has well over half a million properties
in 100 countries. The different types of rentals available vary widely and include everything from loft apartments to lake houses, country farmhouses, mountain cabins and even harbor
side houseboats. Impressively, there are over 25,000 properties that are listed as dog friendly, which means that this service is opening up new travel options for pet owners. VRBO also adds a level of personal touch to the travel and vacation rental experience as renters can talk with owners in advance to their stay. This is a level of personalization that hotels just cant hope to match.
VRBO and other homeowner rental sites, such as Airbnb, are connecting those that have homes they wish to rent with travelers looking for a way to save money and enjoy more for their rental dollar. Sound great, right? Sounds as though everyone should be very happy, right? Well, not so fast, as everyone is not happy.
In fact there are a lot of very rich and very upset people. Large hotel corporations as well as small hotel owners are downright terrified that this idea is going
to catch on and spread even more. The hotel industry has enjoyed a long de facto monopoly on travel, and that means theyve traditionally received a huge chuck of all business and leisure travel that takes place globally. Site, such as VRBO, threaten this pretty cash flow and in a fairly dramatic way.
Those interested in cashing in on what VRBO has to offer need to keep many factors in mind. First, it is vital to have a high quality product that people want. Part of having a high quality vacation rental is to make sure that your vacation rental is clean.
House cleaning services are definitely the way to go when it comes to keeping your home clean enough to use sites like VRBO. If your home is judged unclean by the weary travelers that stay with you, then you can be certain that your time using this service to rent your property will be short lived.
A professional cleaning service is essentially an investment in your vacation rental business that VRBO is helping to facilitate. Keeping your home clean is made a great deal easier when you opt for an experienced home cleaning service.
