Seems like a really “nerdy” way to launch a new website. However, it also seems appropriate. So many vacation rental owners in the Great Smoky Mountain Region of Tennessee have come to us to express their disappointment in the changes that have recently come to the Vacation Rental by Owner market place.
There is a cry for change in this market place. A market place that has been dominated by big box worldwide listing sites that have recently shown both owners and customers that they are not concerned with their needs, instead are concerned with profits and market domination.
In the past there really was no room, or even need, for the little guy to exist. Local listing directories were seen as secondary listing resources that did not have the draw or the customers that the big box brands commanded. Now with the sweeping negative changes that these big box brands are making to their resources there is a battle cry from the private owners to find a better, more efficient way to build their small to medium sized rental by owner businesses.
This cry has resulted in hundreds of “hyper local” listing engines popping up all over the United States and World. These new resources have been created with the original concept of the Rental By Owner marketplace in mind. The one true mission, to connect the owner of localized hospitality rental properties directly with renters to negotiate a deal which results in a business transaction where the customer has an amazing vacation getaway and the owner makes a profit for their business.
Our parent company MountainWORX Hospitality Services (www.mtnworx.com) started in 2014 with the sole purpose of providing services to the small to medium sized vacation rental owners. As our service line up grew our little maintenance company opened a cleaning services division, a commercial laundry division, a paper products division, and many other services.
So when our customers came to us requesting that we open a listing engine and property management division we saw this as a win / win proposition and CabinWORLD.Rentals was born. Today, on May the Fourth 2016 we are bringing our engine on line to provide visitors to the Great Smoky Mountain Region a new, cheaper, more efficient way to rent properties directly from owners.
We’re asking customers to see the value of renting from a local organization that provides direct owner / customer connections. We’re asking owners of vacation rental properties to rise up against the oppression that our big brand competitors are forcing upon them and support our hyper local market place.
We are excited for the future! May the force be with us, and May the Fourth be with you!
