Why choose an agent to rent your property over VRBO or AirBNB?
I am always amazed that owners still use VRBO and AirBnB. These do-it-yourself services are very expensive, do not properly cover for tenant damage, do not interview tenants to find their true intentions with the property, and still require the owner to clean and inspect their own property. It seems that VRBO and AirBNB are really just marketing websites for rentals that can leave homeowners dangling, earning far less than hiring an agent to oversee the whole rental process. In addition, the marketing on VRBO and AirBNB is difficult for potential tenants to navigate with messaging leaving out phone numbers to chat with owners directly.
