SkyRun Vacation Rentals Franchise Overview

Who says you can’t live in a beach or ski resort AND make a great living? You can… by managing vacation rental properties for the property owners.

The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation. – Mark Twain

Most properties (homes, condos, townhomes, villas) in resort areas like beaches and ski resorts are 2nd homes owned by over 6.4 million individuals. The majority of these people only use their property for personal use for under 30 days a year. For the remaining 335 days, most owners then rent their properties short-term (by the night or week) in order to produce income, often to cover the expensive mortgage they took out to buy their luxurious resort property.
