The iTrip Vacation Rental Franchise Opportunity: What We Are and Are Not, and Where We Fit into Our Industry
Right now, the short-term rental market is hot, getting hotter, and showing no signs of cooling down. In fact, it’s estimated that the worldwide vacation rental market will have increased at a compound annual growth rate of about 7.1% between 2017 and 2021, with demand for short-term rentals expected to grow another 14.1% in 2022. These numbers should encourage anyone thinking about opening a vacation rental franchise, especially if they partner with iTrip. We’re an industry leader with unique technology that allows our franchisees to leverage our business model to make the most of a thriving industry. If you’d like to become part of it, too, we think there’s truly no better time!
Who We Are in a Competitive Field
iTrip is a technology company first. Our property management platform was created by our development team to allow iTrip property managers the ability to operate all aspects of their business easily and efficiently. It provides them with the innovation they need to get the job done right, acting as an aggregator, integrating all property management solutions into one place so time isn’t wasted, and bottom lines are maximized.
Put simply, our proprietary software is a game changer, with important features that include:
- Rate management tools to help set pricing, boost revenue, and adjust rates easily.
- Integration with multiple listing sites, so properties are seen on dozens of platforms, include Airbnb, Vrbo, Booking.com, Google, and many more.
- The ability to send emails out automatically to guests after they’ve booked a property and to communicate directly with property owners.
- A system that can pull reports and statements to help with month-end accounting.
- And much more!
Our technology allows our franchisees to provide their clients boutique-level service and comprehensive management with the marketing power of a national brand. A partnership with us puts them — and you — ahead of the curve and the competition!
What We Are Not
iTrip is an industry-leading technology company and a premier investment opportunity for anyone who wants to open a property management franchise. That’s what we are and what we do. But it’s important to know what we aren’t.
We aren’t landlords or real estate agents. We don’t manage apartment complexes, nor are we a travel agency. Furthermore, we don’t represent passive income. Our franchisees work hard every day to get the word out about their businesses (with the help of our extensive digital marketing campaigns and targeted marketing efforts), to network with property and business owners, and to manage secondary properties in their territories. They are proud business owners who currently manage more than 3,000 short-term rental properties throughout the United States, and who enjoy the freedom and respect that comes with being their own boss.
iTrip is excited to be such an integral part of a dynamic industry, and we’re committed to the growth of our brand and to the success of each and every one of our franchisees. A partnership with us means you’ll be in business for yourself, never by yourself.
