How do you price our home? 

 

Our revenue team thoughtfully uses a combination of human intervention, exclusive pricing software, and algorithms to ensure our homes rates are aligned with market demand. We use dynamic pricing, which means the rate will fluctuate based on the supply and demand for any given time period.  This combination of technology and human oversight has proven to maximize our owner’s revenue and return on their investments.   

Homes are established with minimum rates so that each of our homes do have a threshold or floor rate that it cannot go below.  

Where do you advertise? 

 

We invest heavily in the marketing and promotion of your home. This includes boosting our proprietary website MeredithLodging.com, a continued outreach to our repeat customers, a strong social media presence, and home listing on third-party booking platforms including sites such as Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. It is our goal that someone looking for a home like yours, finds you!

Do you have a local office? 

 

We believe property management is best done locally and pride ourselves on being a family-run, locally based company. We invest in fully-staffed physical offices in the markets where our owners have homes. Our locally-based, experienced teams are available 24/7/365 to meet the needs of our home Owners and help our guests plan their perfect getaway. Once our guests arrive, they can count on having a local team to take care of any needs that arise. We focus on all the details of their stay, so they can focus on making memories and enjoying our Owners’ homes as much as possible.

We are committed to the ongoing success of these communities, and give both in time and money, with a special focus on organizations that further the development of children, provide resources to our country’s Veterans and come to the aid of animals in need.  

What happens if there is an emergency at my home? 

 

Our team is available 24/7, 365 days a year.  Whether there is a noise issue, a guest is locked out or your home loses heat, we will send a team member to your home to assist. 

Will we receive more revenue if we allow dogs?  

 

Allowing dogs does increase revenue. On average, revenue is increased around 10%. Simply, allowing dogs opens (or closes) a % of the rental market. Though there can be some additional wear and tear, the additional revenue received from the increase in bookings does overall yield more revenue for owners.  

Guest are charged an additional pet fee when bringing a dog. This fee goes to the additional cleaning/inspection. Should our staff find that a dog was to cause damage guest will be responsible.  

What are the top amenities guests are looking for?  

 

The number one amenity clicked on our website and request by guests is a Hot Tub! Featuring this amenity in your home tends to increase revenue around 20%! Other top amenities include: game rooms/tables, TV’s, king beds, outdoor furniture, and bikes.
