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.
