"I have a $1.4M home in Destin; FL. VRA approached me in the middle of January 2008 after I had booked "$0" rentals for the season. As of today, March 1, 2008, my property "Destin Riviera" has 30 booked rentals and over $80K in rents! VRA knows how to get results!" A. Short, Florence, KY.
Vacation Rental Associates, LLC
Are you struggling to figure out how to make your vacation rental property cash flow or even just get bookings? Are you disappointed with the results and returns from the "management company"? Not sure where to turn?
Don't feel all alone! Many owners of vacation rental properties feel the same way! Many owners are very successful and busy business people! Many think they simply do not have the time or experience to successfully market and rent their own property. Most owners are forced to turn their investment over to a local or regional management company! Your property becomes one of thousands in a rental pool. The management company controls your level of success and absorbs all you profit potential. Sound familiar?
Until now, the owner was left with very few choices! Working with the owners, Vacation Rental Associates, LLC, and ivacationonline.com can empower you to cut through the fog of successful vacation rentals. We are consultants and will deploy a customized, comprehensive marketing strategy tied together with our own on-line management software program to make booking and managing your vacation rental much easier than ever imagined.
VRA will set up your own website addresses and even offer you an optional custom web homepage in our booking software. We enable the owners monitor their rental success 24/7 from anywhere in the world through the internet. Best of all you immediately receive 100% of your rental transactions in your own account.
Owning an asset and not maximizing potential income does not make sense in today's economic times. Vacation Rentals are our business. Let us share our success with you and help to optimize returns on your vacation rental properties.
Most vacation rental properties are not operated at annual high occupancy levels. Most struggle to find a few quality bookings a year. That is where VRA comes in. We have developed a "system" of running a vacation rental at possible 90% - 100 % occupancy! So if you are grossing maybe $10,000 to $20,000 a year on your own or with a traditional Management Company, we can take that to much higher levels. You may be able to experience rental income of $50,000 to $100,000 per year with a quality rental program.
The bottom line - we get results! VRA doesn't make money unless our owners are renting their properties! VRA has literally "written the book" on how to do this and developed the systems and software from the ground up. Now you can take advantage of our success!
VRA, LLC and ivacationonline.com will even send you a copy of our book, Vacation Rentals for Profit at no charge if you decide to sign on to our program. This book has been described as the manual for being successful in the vacation rental business.
