Having a vacation home is a popular goal amongst most working adults. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors, vacation-home sales jumped 29.7 percent in 2013 to an estimated 717,000 last year from 553,000 in 2012. Whether it’s a condo on the beach or a cabin in the woods, many adults enjoy having access to a home away from home.
But what happens when you’re not visiting your second home? Whether you’re using the home or not, it’s still costing you money. But it doesn’t have to.
If you are already a member of websites like Airbnb, VRBO or Flipkey, then you know filling the home with vacation renters can help offset or eliminate your monthly mortgage costs. However, did you know that BizX can help you with this too? People all around the network are renting their timeshares and vacation homes out to other BizX members, with homes located in Whistler, British Columbia or Puerto Vallarta, to name a few.
What makes vacation rentals through BizX so great is how convenient it is. Members simply send a link to one of their current rental website profiles, and BizX will create a separate listing for your property. If your house isn’t already listed elsewhere, no problem. Just send us a description, photos and rental rates. The BizX travel department will promote the listing and send vetted queries to the vacation homeowner. Vacation rates should be the same as cash, which will be converted into BizX dollars and extra fees such as cleaning services will be charged to the renter in cash.
Just as any other good or service exchanged through BizX, you’re offloading your excess inventory. Let BizX help you turn your vacancy into another member’s vacation.
