  • Rise of sharing economy
  • Expansion of online distribution
  • Increased investments in vacation rental homes

Rise of sharing economy

Abhay Sinha, one of the lead analysts at Technavio, talks about sharing economy saying, “A sharing economy refers to an ecosystem where collaborative consumption of resources takes place. This model is adopted into a variety of sectors from hospitality to transport, and is witnessing tremendous growth,”

Sharing economy provides environmental, economic, and community benefits by enhancing the use of available resources. Customers thrive in such environments, and many millennials are open to this style of accommodation. With increasing acceptance of this type of accommodation and benefits it provides, the revenues of the enterprises following this model will rise exponentially.

Expansion of online distribution

Vacation planning has largely shifted online with a majority of the travelers relying on various forums on the internet to decide on the destination, the itinerary, and booking transport and accommodation. Thus, increased internet penetration has unlocked a higher potential for growth and global exposure to vacation home rentals. Additionally, these online forums also provide services such as professional photography, trust and safety management, and security provisions, which has fueled tremendous growth in the market.

Increased investments in vacation rental homes

Vacation rental homes are drawing increased investments to ensure higher profits from rental homes by improving their features and adopt better marketing strategies. Additionally, the number of investors purchasing single-family homes to use them as vacation rentals are increasing, thereby driving market growth,” says Abhay.

Many homeowners are turning second homes into vacation home rentals to supplement their incomes. Additionally, the proliferation of online vacation rental platforms has provided residential property owners the ability to connect with a larger customer base. A combination of these factors is responsible for the increasing investments into vacation rental homes, leading to increased revenue generation.
