Did you know that the largest growth segment in the vacation rental industry today is private owners managing their own vacation properties? There are many software tools available for the private owner that did not exist five years ago which make it simple for a homeowner to market their own property. However, there are still logistical challenges that private owners face.
Here are a few of those challenges:
- Consistent quality cleaning
- Check-in and check-out
- Maintenance and repair work
- 24 hour emergency service for items such as lock outs or failed heating systems
- Snow Plowing
- Carpet cleaning
- Checking the condition of the home upon departure
Based on communication with many owners who manage their own properties, we have found that it can be very difficult to get all of the logistical challenges taken care of when renting your own home due to the fact that you have a number of contacts for all of the services you need. We can be your single contact to take care of all of this for you. After all, contacting several contractors or vendors in order to get your emergency dealt with can be very time consuming. As a premier Sunriver vacation rental company, we know that you are not interested in hiring a property management company, but we also know there is an opportunity for us to provide you with a high-quality service.

The best part of this program is the opportunity for you to make money without having to do anything. Since we are a vacation rental management company, we can take all of the overflow business you are turning away and turn it into MONEY for you. We would pay you a 10% referral fee on all of the business you refer to our office. For example, if your home is booked for President’s Day weekend and you refer five potential guests to Sunset and we book four out of the five at an average of $600 per stay, you would receive a referral for the month of February of $240. This would more than likely cover your costs of cleaning and maintenance for the month. Think about how much potential there is during the months of July and August with the average booking being $1000 or more. With Sunset Lodging’s Independent Owners Program, you get all of the benefits of a professional property management team behind you without the cost. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to make money in the process—a win/win situation for everyone involved.
