Money Matters - Selling, Buying, and Raising Money in the Vacation Rental Industry

Selling a vacation rental company is not only about talking with either Vacasa or Vtrips

Airbnb, Vacasa, Hometogo, and Sonder have gone public recently, and vacation rental tech companies are raising money from VCs. Giants such as Vacasa and Vtrips are gobbling up others, but they are not the only game in town. Many smaller property management companies have been acquired, but you never hear about them – until nowHow do YOU become part of this vacation rental boom and is it here to last?

When it comes to investing, it can be hard to know what’s worth your time and money with all the noise. Conversely, with so many companies competing for attention, it can be tough to get your business seen by potential buyers.

Join us for this free 1-hour long online conference to learn from subject matter experts about what investors are looking for, how you can set your business up for success when selling, or how and where to invest.

More buyers and more money are entering the market than ever before. There are also newer models being
explored outside the traditional 3rd party management, such as asset ownership (prop-co vs op-
co), lease arbitrage, build-to-rent, and everything in between. Different buyers focus on
different metrics, including geographical regions, quality/type of inventory, and revenue
metrics (i.e., net revenue, EBITDA, gross rents). Buyers are also expecting more professionalized
Sellers. With all of this interest and expectations, it’s important for sellers to be informed with
up-to-date information on buyer criteria and how to best prepare their company for a potential
