Renting out a home is a great way to have a passive income. The reality however, might not look as luxurious and comfortable as it seems from the outside. Renting out a home requires a lot of work: you need to find guests, make sure everything is in order, provide maintenance and all other headache worthy details. Thankfully, advanced technology and software offer us highly efficient solutions. There are lots of different apps that can help you rent out your second home, manage different properties and communicate with your clients.
All the apps that help you rent out your home have different features and benefits. Some of them provide easy access to big audiences while others such as Lodgable offer channel management. The best apps serve different purposes; therefore, you have to choose the one that suits your needs and delivers good results.
Some of the best apps include Airbnb, Vrbo, Booking.com, Expedia and Orbitz. In this blog we will share our favourite apps for efficient renting of your second home.
If you have not tried yet, you most certainly should start using Airbnb. This app is the best friend for people who want to put up their second home for short term rental. Whether your home is in the upbeat city centre or by the beach you can rent it out through Airbnb.
This app is number 1 on Forbes’ list of best vacation rental apps for a good reason. The listing is quite easy. The payments are secure and most importantly, you could earn a lot through Airbnb. As an Airbnb host, you will have opportunities to meet new and exciting people from all over the world. Managing the reservations of your home is an easy and comfortable process. After the initial introduction to the app, you will get used to it and make the best of its features.
Airbnb is chosen as the #1 app for booking vacation homes by many local and international tourists. Just listing your home on Airbnb is a huge step forward to start making money from renting out your home.
While Airbnb is my absolute favourite for renting out my home, there is another app that I highly appreciate:
If you do not have a lot of time for your property management, then Vrbo might offer you the best solution. You can rent out your home without spending too much time creating the listings on different websites. Once you create a listing for your property on Vrbo, the app will immediately list your home on affiliate websites such as Expedia, Trivago, KAYAK, Travel Mob and more. Getting digital exposure for your home without putting too much effort into it, has never been easier.
I believe, based on this information, that you can make a sound decision and choose an app that suits your needs and brings the very best results for your situation. Most importantly, these apps can be easily managed through Lodgable’s all-in-one management software. You can avoid double bookings and accept payments easily from multiple channels.
