Still Time To Book Your Summer Vacation

It seems just like yesterday I was writing that summer has finally arrived and now it seems like summer is almost over. It is only 5 weeks until many schools are back in session. Don't panic, if you have not planned your summer vacation and have just started trying to find a home to rent in some of the more popular destinations, you still have time and you can still find a place to stay. You may even save yourself some money in the long run. Even tough is a fantastic website to manage your vacation property and to get more bookings for your listing than any other website, there are always a few weeks that have not been booked by someone for one reason or another.

You can search the ivol database for the area you want, date, how many bedrooms, and property type. Very rarely does every single property have the week you are looking for completely sold out. When you find one you can contact the owner to work out a price for those last minute bookings. Often times many owners are willing to offer a discount for a week they have rented which is quickly approaching. A word to wise, don't insult a property owner and make a offer of $1000 for a property that rents for $3000 during that time frame. In most cases if you do that the owner may not reply back to you. Just make a reasonable fair offer for the property you want. In many cases the owner has already lowered the price, or has posted a coupon or special for the property, so there is no need to haggle over a price.

In some instances owner will not negotiate prices, don't be offended by this. Often times to avoid wheeling and dealing and to keep their prices fair for all of the renters, the owner will set a fair price for the property and keep to that price, even if the unit may go empty a week. I personally like this approach that way my renters know they are going to get the best price available on my properties and do not have to worry about negotiating for a deal.

So if you are still in need of a vacation rental property, relax visit and find the perfect rental at the price you want to pay.
