Renting, With Confidence, A Private Home For Your Vacation

What had started as a 'Mom & Pop' business is now a $22 billion dollar industry according to the North American Press Syndicate. More and more Americans turn to private vacation homes for a kitchen, more space and most importantly, value according to travel industry think tank PhoCusWright.  It's no wonder consumers lament feeling adrift in a 22 billion dollar industry.  Who can you trust if not your dear old Mom and Pop?

Your vacation is important and with Americans getting less of them, a broken promise of value and comfort is particularly painful.   Too many vacationers lament over using web-based listing service.  These services provide less accountability than a local market does over its community notices board.

Here's what you need to know:

  1. Don't Doubt, Scout:  Acquire good information about the destination and house. Professionals like, 3Harbors Realty ensure you have updated pictures and accurate descriptions. You can feel good about the home you've chosen.
  2. Know who you are dealing with:  If you book with an owner, verify their credentials and use a secure payment method. Here at 3Harbors Realty we've verified ownership. We maintain accurate accounting and payment methods, confirm availability and administer damage deposits with efficiency and expertise.
  3. Secure Enjoyment:  You can have security during your vacation by working with an established local company who is a stake holder in the success of your vacation. At 3Harbors Realty we are on hand to help ensure your vacation is a good one, we've already started and will be here with you until the end.

We may not be your Mom and Pop but I bet we are a lot easier to talk to.
