Incline Village, NV (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- Welcome to the Revolution! ReserveMyHome is revolutionizing the vacation home rentals marketplace and coming to Lake Tahoe for both property owners and renters.
In the past, the playing field was level. All renters had to endure the struggle of first finding a potential home, then wait (days in some cases) for owners to get back to them on availability, location, pricing, proximity to attractions, and all the other details important to making their vacation perfect and relaxing â not the most relaxing way to start when the search process is so difficult. But, renters put up with it, because vacation homes are less expensive than hotels and provide much more convenience â if the right home is found.
All property owners also had to endure the struggle of answering countless inquiries hoping for a confirmed booking, then wading through the reservation process exchanging money, directions, access instructions, and finally (hopefully) reimbursing security deposits. Again, property owners put up with it, because any rental is income. This can be a full time job for vacation homeowners. Not anymore.
Scott Norris, founder of ReserveMyHome, says, âAfter being a renter for many years, then buying my own vacation homes to avoid all those hassles, I was introduced to a whole new world of hassles as the property owner. I thought there had to be a better way. Why canât booking a vacation home be as easy as booking a hotel?â After one year in development, ReserveMyHome is pleased to present their proprietary solution that truly revolutionizes the vacation home rental industry. The website notes renters and travelers can actually book a vacation home faster than they can pack their suitcase.
Tahoe vacation rentals owners list their homes on ReserveMyHome for FREE, presenting to renters photo slide shows, an amazingly comprehensive amenities listing, specific property locations, proximity to attractions, and the coup de gras: an instantly and automatically updated availability calendar. Norris says, âI canât tell you how many 20-second phone calls and emails I had only to tell the prospective renter that the property wasnât available, this was by far the most frequent question I fielded, taking my valuable time. I knew it was critical to respond to as many inquiries as possible to avoid losing business for my vacation home, but so many transactions were over before they even started, it was disheartening. How could I expect these potential renters to remember where they had found my home during their internet search and to come back to me again?"
Norris expressed how much renters enjoy the booking experience and has a hard time figuring out who benefits more. âRenters love us, but owners who use the button and give it a shot want to list all their homes on the site.âA property manager from Alabama called the other day and asked to upload 89 homesâ¦ That says to me they trust us and that is big in this marketplace. These homes are being booked 24/7 365 days a year in Maui, Hi and we need Lake Tahoe rentalsâ¦ we have the renters.â
