Opportunity awaits

If you own a second home, you have the chance to join the rapidly growing, $36.6 billion vacation rental industry. It's an incredible money-making opportunity, but the benefits don't end there: Whether you want to offset your mortgage costs or make the most of vacant space, using your property as a vacation rental has plenty of perks. Discover more below.

The benefits of vacation rentals

When you’re not visiting, your home can generate income as a vacation rental—and a trusted property manager like Vacasa makes the process simple and worry-free. We handle everything from marketing to rate optimization to listing on top booking channels, helping you earn the most money with the smallest amount of effort.

Wouldn’t it be nice to share your home away from home with others? When you open your door to vacation rental guests, you're giving them the opportunity for memory-making and quality time together.

A vacant home creates an opportunity for break-ins and weather-related damage. Opening your door to guests is a great way to deter burglars—and working with Vacasa means you have a local team with feet on the ground, ensuring your home’s safety and security.

When considering renting for the first time, it's natural for homeowners to worry about potential damage. When you work with Vacasa, you can rest easy—our housekeepers maintain your home to hotel-quality standards, regularly checking for damage and addressing wear and tear as it arises. We go above and beyond your typical vacation property management company, too, offering regular deep cleans, options for installing a keyless entry system, and enrollment in Assurant—supplemental insurance tailor-made for vacation rental homes.

With Vacasa, getting your home guest-ready is simple. We maintain dedicated teams for finance and interior design so you won’t have to worry about getting the right permits, filing lodging taxes, finding vacation rental insurance, or stocking your home for guests. We even offer options to furnish your property, provide hotel-quality linens, and install a hot tub.

The partnership with Vacasa has been a blessing. It has enabled my wife and me to transition these real estate investments to the passive category, where they belong. They are now rewarding, enjoyable, and profitable. I highly recommend working with Vacasa.

Only had long-term tenants?

If your home is in a desirable travel destination or close to attractions, it might perform well on the vacation rental market. Whether your long-term tenant just left or you’re looking for more flexibility, here are a few reasons to consider using your home as a vacation rental.

Growing opportunity

Vacation rental bookings are growing fast: In the U.S. alone, the total market will reach $36.6 billion by the end of 2018. When you list your home on the vacation rental market, you become part of a rapidly growing industry with huge earning potential.

More access

Say hello to spontaneous trips and weekend getaways. Without long-term tenants, your vacation home is always available for you, your friends, and your family. Our online owner accounts make reserving your own vacation time easy, too—simply log in and block out the days you wish to stay.

Better care

Unlike a long-term rental, your home is routinely cleaned and maintained to hotel-quality standards. We even provide opportunities to enhance and improve your property through interior design, hot tub installation, hotel-quality linens, and more.
