Earn more, work less & worry never!

This is rental management & local hosting as it should be

Discover how we can help make your rental property a truly “passive investment”.

Local Hosting & Rental Management Made Easy!

PMBO® was started back in 2004 as a direct response to the escalating costs for property management. We figured that it could not be that difficult or expensive for the property owner to manage his/her rental property, right? Why should we as property owner have to share our investment by paying large amounts out in property management fees? In some resort areas, you can pay up to and even more than 50% of the rental income earned just to the management companies. Ouch!

But, we also realize that people are busy, and it’s not that easy to manage your vacation home when you’re living out of town/state and have lots of distractions in all the other aspects of your life. And, the landscape of the rental world is continuously changing. It takes time to stay up on trends and maintain market shares. And, today’s guests are demanding a more hands-on approach.

Earn More, Work Less, and Worry Never.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our goal with PMBO® was to put together a program to minimize the time that folks need to manage their vacation rental and maximize the profits that they can make in rental revenues, providing visibility and control to the property manager to earn more, and give you the tools needed to work less and never worry.

It doesn’t have to be crazy expensive to have supported rental management! 

Our goal is to focus in on the areas that need the most support and to keep up with the ever-changing resort rental environment to maximize your over-all rental cash flow. And, most importantly, we focus on providing visibility and communication tools – allowing you to do the things necessary to be “virtually” on-site and in-person to handle property set-up, ensure quality housekeeping, local guest communication (today’s traveler has a LOT of questions) and the occasional difficult renter.

PMBO Key Features to Promote

Our New Standard is the OLD Standard

We’ve re-created the value and meaning of Vacation Rental By Owner, setting a new standard in vacation rental software. PMBO gives you everything you need to effectively manage your property, inclusion in all major channels and an online booking site that charges ZERO FEES to your guests. PMBO lowers costs for the renter and increases your rental reservations. Let’s rewind the clock to old-school Property Management and Vacation Travel By Owner, how it was always meant to be.

True By-Owner

The marketplace 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.

Owner Flexibility

Our owners are our most important customers and we’ve put you first with owner-friendly policies like no term commitments, no limit on personal stays and an Owner Loyalty Program allowing you to decrease your costs year after year.

Low fees!

Increase your profits without eating into your free time. The cost of using the PMBO app is significantly less than typical property management companies who charge up to 55% in some areas.
