Get More Renters. Work Less.

What can I do to make sure my HomeAway listing stands out?

I just created a new listing on HomeAway, but there are so many other homes in my area. How do I make sure my home stands out among the crowd?

When trying to entice people to your rental, you want to make sure you're being as transparent and helpful as possible. The more questions they have, the more likely they are to turn away and look for a home listing with more information.

Make sure you have a meaty, descriptive headline that either quickly explains the home's best attributes, highlights its amenities or describes the surrounding neighborhood and benefits. Make sure your description is at least 700 characters long (but not so long as to intimidate people) and spell-check everything. Always upload the maximum number of photographs; visuals sell. Lastly, stay on top of your availability calendar, or else it reflects poorly on you as a manager and may reduce your placement in the search results.
