We started FlipKey to help expand the vacation rental market by providing a platform to highlight professional reputation and trust. There are 6.5 million vacation homes in the U.S. and less than 10% are rented to travelers looking for a great place to stay. This means over 5 million secondary home-owners are foregoing the economic benefits of renting their homes when they are not occupying them. We are convinced there are simple solutions to help bridge this gap.
The FlipKey Blog is our first contribution to the rental community. The founders of FlipKey are passionate about the internet and how it can improve the home rental marketplace. We have industry-leading research, insightful observations and opinions we want to share.
The humble goals of the FlipKey Blog:
- Encourage more owners to rent their homes and more guests to rent vacation homes.
- Provide free access to premium research that has never been available to the vacation rental industry.
- Cultivate a sense of community and thought leadership among property managers, listing services and owners to expand the vacation rental marketplace.
FlipKey’s core service is still in development and will be launching this Fall. If you are a property manager, homeowner or are involved with the vacation rental industry and would like to be included in our service launch, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the Blog and we look forward to your thoughts and comments.
