Whether you’re buying or selling a vacation rental property, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we created HighFlyRE, a community-oriented website for those who want to learn more about vacation rentals, buy and sell them, and connect with top-of-the-line resources. This allows each person to make more informed decisions and maximize the value of their rentals. Check out some of the ways we empower rental owners below. 

Vacation Rental Listings 

Chances are, you’ve already taken a look at HighFlyRE’s vacation rental listings. This is where buyers can familiarize themselves with available properties all over the world, from Pennsylvania to Panama. Would you like to own a vacation rental near your primary residence or buy a property halfway across the globe? The rental listings page is where you can consider all these possibilities and see which is a good fit.

For sellers, this page is also a great resource. Share your property with an audience that truly understands the value of vacation rentals. To start, sellers can post photos that represent the unique charms of their property. (For example, here’s a look at a gorgeous rental on Carenero Island!) Our rental listings page also gives you plenty of space to write a vivid description. Is your property professionally managed? Does it already have lots of positive reviews on Vrbo or Airbnb? Share this essential info. That way, there’s no miscommunication between buyer and seller.

Insights On Vacation Rental Properties 

Right now, you’re scrolling through one of our many blog posts. This is where we bring you the latest on short-term rentals and best practices. We update this page every week. For example, here’s our recent look at rentals as investment properties

HighFlyRE’s readers also get to hear from their fellow VR owners. Everyone’s journey looks different. That’s why we take the time to interview VR owners about the unique strategies that work for them. One of our recent interviewees, Amy from Austin, Texas, told us how she built a rental property above her own garage. If you’re thinking about hosting guests in or near your primary residence, Amy’s interview is one to check out.

Real Estate Agent and Resource Directories 

Keep an eye on our website for our forthcoming Real Estate Agent and Resource directories. Both of these will offer rental owners an accessible guide to their most needed services. 

The Real Estate Agent Directory will connect you with agents who are well-versed in vacation rentals. That way, you’ll have someone in your corner who understands the unique needs of rental owners. For example, those looking to add a property in Belize will find high-quality agencies like Boris Mannsfeld & Associates.

Meanwhile, the Resource Directory will bring you an at-a-glance view of products and services that will streamline your day-to-day as a rental owner. Property managers, rental photographers, and marketers are just a few of the helpful services that will be right at your fingertips.

Final Thoughts 

At HighFlyRE, we believe that well-informed vacation rental owners build better, higher-quality properties. This ensures you get the most out of your asset. We look forward to getting to know you better as your vacation rental journey continues. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell or just need a word of advice, HighFlyRE is here for you!
