Your Property Will Be Marketed Worldwide
Managing a vacation rental property without experience, the right marketing tools and message, and a team of people to see that your property is cared for and rented as often as possible can be challenging. That's where our expertise can help. We'll market and rent your property professionally to the right target audience and care for it like it's our own – so sit back and relax and collect those rent checks. Your work is done!
When the Sarah Bernard Realty Team manages your vacation rental, it will be listed on many nationwide and international websites, including AirBNB, VRBO, Homeaway.com, VacationRentals.com, Glamping Hub (resort properties only), Booking.com, Tripadvisor.com, and our own Lodgify website. We have earned the very coveted “Super Host” status on AirBNB many times – your property will be included in that status – going right to the top in listing searches.
We market our properties and yours to a database of over 3000 people who have already rented from us or have expressed an interest in renting from us. This includes an ongoing digital marketing campaign with SEO and pay-per-click advertising, drip marketing, Facebook ads, and other online platforms. And, as a bonus, all marketing fees (professional photography, website fees, online or direct mail advertising costs, Facebook advertising, etc) are included at no additional cost to you!
Buy & Rent a Vacation Home
If you have been considering buying an Innsbrook Resort or St. Louis area home as an investment in the vacation rental market, we can help you not only purchase the property, but manage it as well. Now that you know you don't have to do a thing to maintain your vacation rental, you can enjoy earning passive rental income without the responsibilities and worry and potentially add to your investment inventory. Reach out to us today for a complimentary consultation. We look forward to meeting you!
