Profiting From  Vacation Rental  Zoom Call with Brian England


The zoom call on Aug 3, featured Brian England who explained quite professionally the vacation rental service known as Vacasa, which was created by the need for a vacation rental home.  Casa being the Spanish name for house.

The founder of the company wanted to take his family on vacation sometime in 2007-2008. Being from the Washington state area, he was looking for a little more than a stay at a resort and decided this was a family vacation niche which needed a solution.

Vacasa seeks out rental property managers and encourages them to offer their owners the opportunity to make some money from their vacation properties when they are not being used.  

Not unlike a hotel, they offer management and housekeeping services for the property before each use to a level consistent with the luxury hotels in the marketplace.  The difference being that the renters have use of the home as if it were their own without  the hustle of a larger resort.  Occupancy is limited to the number of bedrooms with an allowance of 2 people per bed, and the family pets can also be accommodated.


Rentals are capped at 30 days and at the end of the rental period, housekeeping comes in  to refresh the home with fresh linens, cleaning and vacummed and sanitizing to a Covid-19 acceptable level.

Within the map above are blue shaded areas which represent areas of the country where Vacasa has rental properties available, with managers like Brian to help people interested in buying a vacation property or to get their property into the Vacasa system.  Where there are no direct Vacasa representatives they work by referral to local real estate professionals to assist people with their purchases and then included them into the program.

Vacasa has seen substantial growth and will soon be going public.  Their service has gained the attention of other vacation companies and even include Airbnb and Marriott Vacation Club among others as their clients.

Brian was very thorough, and also had an associate, Claire Ewing, on the call to assist with some of the answers.  

Further details or information on Vacasa can be seen on their website:  Vacasa Vacation Rentals

Good morning Ed - Brian did a very good job explaining Vacasa.  Too bad they are not in Connecticut where our family rented a vacation house in June.

Hello Ed - a nice recap.  I must have missed the part where Brian England shared silly cat tricks a presentation skill picked up from watching years of David Letterman.
