HomeAway Incorporated just introduced a property manager-specific section on the site’s Community from HomeAway site. Community, which was originally launched with a focus on vacation rental owners, now has a designated area for vacation rental managers that are interested in sharing information as well as interacting with others who hold the same desire for enhancing their vacation rental business.
HomeAway members of varying experience levels and backgrounds can now engage with one another on topics related to their vacation rental business via open forums and groups, thanks to Community. In addition to that, the site will feature tools to help educate users and facilitate conversation. This includes:
- Blogs from experts in the vacation rental industry
- How-to Articles
- Private groups in which community members may self-organize based on their interest or location
- A vendor Showroom that will allow users to browse and compare products from service providers in areas like software systems for reservations and payments, industry associations, website design and in-home services like keyless entry or cleaning services.
The expert blogs that are centered in the vacation rental industry include PM Perspectives, which is authored by HomeAway employee and 20-year vacation rental industry veteran George Volsky. This blog provides recommendations for property managers to generate greater return for their business and the homeowners they represent. Another blog that is also featured is POV: A Q&A with Property Managers. This blog will feature unique perspectives from various property managers replying to their peers’ questions each month and offering insights to their successes.
The introduction of HomeAway’s Community for property managers coincides with a Community for travelers. This allows for an open forum for those interested in vacation rental stays to get more information on the benefits of vacation homes and seek guidance on trip planning and choosing the right property. In addition to that, the Community will also offer seasoned vacation rental travelers an opportunity to share their stories, as well as advice, with others.
