Trends & Forces

Opportunity to Improve Inefficient Vacation Rental Market

The vacation rental market is a highly fractionated and inefficient market space with significant opportunity for online advertising. In the past, vacationers have not had very many consolidated locations to compare offers or explore new travel locations. Historically many property managers have also had issues being to maximize revenues by renting locations during low periods. These inherent market inefficiencies have largely been reduced with online marketing services similar to the ones that HomeAway provides. Similar to EBay (EBAY) and other e-commerce companies, the sellers rely on customer feedback ratings and reviews to develop credibility with potential renters. [4]
