How iHost is Revolutionizing Rental Property Management for Investors

In the ever-evolving landscape of short-term rental properties, the line between profitability and a financial sinkhole has never been thinner. As rental incomes continue on a downtrend and property management fees, continue to eat into profits, investors are seeking solutions that save on costs and enhance the performance of their listings. My journey in the real estate sector, particularly in identifying single-family homes ripe for short-term vacation rental listings, has equipped me with invaluable insights and a deep understanding of investor needs. This experience was instrumental in foreseeing the impending challenges of decreased rental incomes—a foresight that led to the creation of iHost. A groundbreaking solution that’s setting a new standard in rental property management space. In the past couple of years, we have witnessed a seismic shift in the short-term rental market. Rental incomes have seen significant variations, and with traditional property management fees claiming 20-25% of gross rent, the financial viability of investment properties has been under threat. Against this backdrop, we noticed the first significant decline in Q1 of 2023. This prompted us to innovate a solution redefining property management.

Introducing iHost: Your Partner.

iHost is not just a service; it’s a partnership designed to empower investors to take control of their property management while dramatically reducing expenses. Born from a collaboration with Streamline and perfected through a year of rigorous testing, iHost officially launched on February 1st, 2024, marking a new era in investment property management for the average investor who wants to take matters into their own hands to make their investments increase their returns on investment (ROI).

The iHost Advantage: Simplified Fees, Maximized Earnings

Our transparent pricing model includes a minimal 2% service fee for Vrbo bookings, 3% for Airbnb bookings, and FREE for Vacanza Stays. These fees are added on top of the gross rental income ONLY.

Here’s how you can tell if iHost is tailored to meet your needs.

New to Rental Property Investment.

Embarking on your rental property journey can seem overwhelming, but with iHost, you gain an immediate advantage. Backed by the robust support of Vacanza Stays and guided by a team led by a CEO with over a decade of experience and more than $35M in bookings generated, you’re not just getting a service; you’re gaining an instant infrastructure.

Owners of Multiple Properties or Facing High Management Fees

If your portfolio includes three or more properties, or if you’re seeing management commissions eat away over $80K a year from your profits, iHost offers a solution designed to scale back on those fees significantly. Our model is built to support investors looking to retain more of their earnings without sacrificing the quality of management and guest satisfaction.
