For the most part it is based on our performance in getting your home booked and used by many great guests. Although the vast majority of the money paid by the guest will go to you the owner, a portion of it goes to our organization. Rates in the US vary from about 20% to 50% of the gross revenues. The average is 28%. City locations tend to be less and more remote areas (like in the mountains) get more. We will need to sit down with you to fully understand what we can do for you but I think a good ballpark number to use is 25%. Might be less or a little more.
If you use an excellent organization like what we believe we are, most of this is absorbed as we will be able to bring in more renters than you can likely do on your own or with many other property management companies.
In summary, if we do our job right, it can end up costing you little or nothing as our expense can be offset by more business. The good thing is that you will not have to invest the time or have the headaches. Win-Win.
