With property management firms charging as much as 45% of a rental property’s income, more and more vacation home owners are turning to the Internet to book their rental properties themselves in order to keep more of their rental income. While websites such as HomeAway have given vacation home owners a new venue to advertise their rental properties, most vacation home owners are finding that these sites alone do not produce enough rentals to keep their properties fully booked.

To help vacation home owners find, book and manage online rentals for their rental properties, here are the top 3 time-saving vacation rental management tools that no vacation property owner should be without. 1. Online Booking and Reservations Management System If there’s one thing that online consumers […]

About forty to fifty years ago, a lot the family homes looked the same. The father went to work from 9 to 5, the mother stayed home all day, cooking dinner, while the kids went off to school, came home and completed their homework before supper time. As you know, today is a whole new world. Today, women, moms and wives work… and the standard working hours are not 9 to 5 anymore.

If you really want to become more profitable and improve operations in your company, you have to shift your focus from the following limiting thoughts about technology.   If I buy the latest production software we will be in good shape We don’t do that here We are unique, we don’t have competition that use technology to help them generate profits The plan is in my head, people will steal it off the computer All I need is more sales to make more profits   You’ve got to get the right mindset by eliminating restricting thoughts, and then you’ll be ready to improve people, processes and profitability.
