If anyone is thinking of buying a vacation rental, if they currently own one and manage it themselves or have it with a management company, this seminar or book will provide invaluable information. Finding information on how to operate a vacation rental for a profit is no longer a mystery. It is all available at the seminar or in the book.
With over 6 million second home owners in the US alone, running a vacation rental unit without a management company has become almost a necessity due to the current prices of the units. All the tools are now available to a private owner, like online booking, online marketing and local managers that help you even though you may live hundreds of miles away.
"I have been helping private owners for years. With my real estate and e-commerce background, running a vacation rental online was second nature for me," said Joe Godar, author of Vacation Rentals For Profit and creator of ivacationonline.com, an online vacation rental software site that provides online booking and complete property management for the private owner.
"Now I have a system of marketing, online booking and sound business principals that keep our units full. We are able to show a private owner how to compete and WIN online. That is the reason we wrote the book and created the seminars." Joe Godar added.
When asked "What is the difference between using a property management company and your system?" Godar said, " Usually 40 to 50%. Trying to pay your mortgage and expenses on top of the management fee of 20 to 40% leaves you about 50% of your gross rents, if you are lucky. No one will watch your business like you will. Once you know what to do and use the online tools we have, there is no need to pay the management company."
Look for more seminars to be announced soon.
