And, it needs to be easy as Fred already has a full time job! But how? Well, lucky for Fred, there is Property Management By Owner, or simply PMBO.

Let’s wind the clock back to true Property Management and Vacation Travel By Owner, how it was always supposed to be.
All properties are automatically included in our online booking engine and marketing site VTBO. This site is being marketed as BY OWNER.
Guests save up to 20% or more by choosing our Vacation Travel By Owner site and booking direct with us. Unlike almost all rental management sites today, some of which even claim BY OWNER in their company and website name, VTBO does NOT charge a separate guest booking fee. Guests are catching on to changes in the marketplace and looking for true BY OWNER rental pricing and booking without additional fees. VTBO is the answer and your inclusion in our booking site is automatic and FREE.
The market place has changed a lot in the past few years. Most large By Owner sites are predominantly large property management companies and travel agencies. The By Owner marketplace has all but disappeared.
PMBO is reviving the true By Owner experience, with the property owner managing all aspects of the rental.
Each property has a defaulted automatic inquiries to allow immediate and automatic replies to booking inquiries from our VTBO booking engine as well as all channel partners. Improve your rankings and search order results with responsiveness!

I’ve been working with PMBO for over a year to manage my condo in Breckenridge, CO. PMBO makes it very easy and affordable to own a vacation rental property, by taking care of all advertising of your property, schedule management, and housekeeping. They ensure your property gets maximum exposure through online rental searches. When I bought my Breckenridge condo, it was not previously used as an active rental property. PMBO far exceeded my expectations on rental activity and kept it booked straight through ski season and almost every day during the summer season.
The PMBO site also makes it very easy to reconcile your distribution checks against the revenue that is coming in and the expenses that are being paid. The affordability of PMBO services is another major differentiator. Most other companies who provide this level of service charge a lot more and make your rental property a marginal investment. I highly recommend using PMBO for your rental property. Finding PMBO was a key deciding factor in purchasing a vacation rental property.
PMBO is the reason I sleep at night. With PMBO, not only have our rents gone up (with low rental commissions, this is money direct in our pockets!), there is such great ease and confidence that everything is being handled from the point of reservation all the way through guest check-out. PMBO generates bookings and maxes out our rental potential, and they take care of our renters, too! We are able to communicate easily with our renters and give them the confidence that they are coming to a place where they will be well taken care of. As an owner, I couldn’t be happier…or better rested.
We started using PMBO years ago and have always been pleased. But now with the newest enhancements including channeling, the world wide exposure has brought us more clients than we ever thought possible. The platform is excellent at taking reservations and payments as well as providing all of the reports needed to track income and expenses, and file tax reports. Also PMBO does an awesome job of handling all of the back and forth communication with renters and managing maid service. We are so pleased that PMBO allowed us to stay in the rental game without the high cost of typical rental management organizations. Highly recommend!
