Not sure which program fits your needs?


When you are thinking about how you will manage the rental of your vacation home, you have to choose which management style will work best for you: Professional Property Management, Rent By Owner or a Combination of the two.


The 10 question quiz below has been created to help you find which management style works best for you. Please respond to each question with a score of 1 to 10 for each question below. “10” means you or the agency can definitely do this the best. You can split your answer if you have abilities in certain areas, for example, you might put a score of “6” for your own ability to market and agency might score a “4”. Always be sure the total is “10” for each question.
