There are so many options for task creation, requiring photos, etc. that it is easy to get carried away and create checklists with hundreds of items.

    •  Not a true double-entry accounting platform. This shouldn't be an issue for people who use Stessa to track the accounting of their own portfolio, but should be taken into consideration by property managers.
    • Certain features are not available with the Essentials plan.

    Mobile Device Support: Yes

    Customer Support: Chat support, training videos, webinars, and articles.

     

  • Pros
    Key Data gathers and anonymizes information directly from hosts via the 50+ property management software systems it integrates with.  This means that if the PMS you're using is integrated with Key Data, they get anonymized information on your occupancy, rates, pacing, etc. They pull this information from all the accounts of all their 50 + PMS partners to create a massive data set. This creates incredibly powerful, nearly real-time information on the short-term rental industry and sets it apart from other market intelligence tools which get their data from OTAs such as Airbnb.  They are able to organize and distill the data into useful tables, graphs, and reports for almost every market worldwide.
    • The Key Data information is nearly real-time
    • The data is gathered directly from hosts and property managers via their PMS, as opposed to being data scrapped from OTA platforms.
    • The Demand IQ and Trip IQ features are unique to KeyData and could be invaluable for property managers looking to plug any holes in their revenue bucket.
    • The on-demand webinars and tutorial videos are great resources for busy users.
    • The knowledge library has lots of well-written and in-depth information, which is helpful when you need answers to your questions after hours, or don't have time to wait for an email reply to your question.
    • The easy-to-generate property performance reports simplify owner reporting and proposals for prospective owners.
     
  • Cons
    • In the past, the fact that the ProData tool is only for managers of large portfolios created a gap in KeyData's offerings. Small portfolio owners/managers either had to pay the disproportionately high rate (relative to their portfolio size), or moved on to other market intelligence providers.   The new HostData tool will make the powerful KeyData information available for hosts, co-hosts, and smaller PM at a price that makes sense.
    • As with all market intelligence tools, the data collected is historical.  This brings limitations when making projections about future revenue, occupancy, etc. due to unforeseen events which could happen in the future.  Users should keep this in mind when making decisions for their business.
    • There's a LOT of information available in the ProData tool.  Users who are easily overwhelmed by technology may benefit by pacing themselves as they learn about KeyData features and seek to maximize its utilization.

Overview

Hospitable is a relatively new PMS that has developed a reputation for being easy to set up and use. Its automated messaging features are a particular strength.

Price

Tiered pricing is based on category and the number of active properties. *Only pay for additional property with check-ins in the past 30 days.

Host

Hospitable Direct – Add-on Direct booking website service. 2 plans are available (see Features section below). A monthly per-property fee and a percentage transaction fee for each direct booking reservation.

 

  • Recommended For The Following

    Individual Self-Managing Property Owners – Yes. Hospitable can be used as a stand alone PMS in connection with a few key integrations.

    Property Managers and Co-hosts –  It depends. Co-hosts and those who only manage a handful of properties could make Hospitable work by choosing the right companies to supplement their tech stack. This may be a good option for those who want an easy to set up and easy to use PMS.

    Compared to other enterprise-level property management software though, Hospitable is missing features such as owner statements, robust reporting, and automated rental agreements that would make it a good fit for larger property managers and co-hosts. Features such as the ability to easily connect other owners’ Airbnb accounts to a Hospitable account, and the ability to create email aliases make it apparent Hospitable is seeking to strengthen their hand in this arena and it is worth watching to see what new features they roll out.

    • Reservation information is managed for Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com to prevent double bookings, but Hospitable users will need to manage listing descriptions, photos, and details for VRBO and Booking.com through each of those platforms instead of only through Hospitable.

    • Direct Basic

    • Airtasker holds the task payment in escrow until the task has been completed to the customer's satisfaction.
  • Cons
    • Airtasker is a relatively new platform and there might not be many "Taskers" (professionals who have joined the Airtasker platform) in your area.
    • Just like guests take a risk staying at properties without many reviews, customers are taking a bit of a risk if they use a Tasker with a limited number of reviews.

    • Currently the pricing valuations don't break out valuation of different property types (entire home, condo, multi-family, etc).
    • STR Insights only provides data for the US, eventually it would be great if users could search globally.

    Proper is recommended for owners needing real estate investment property coverage.  They know and understand the needs of short-term rental owners.

    • Special Enhancement Coverages
      • Property Entrustment – Most insurance policies exclude theft, vandalism, and intentional or malicious damages to your home and contents due to entrusting your property to another party. Proper’s custom enhancement removes this limitation, so full property coverage applies as an STR.

(Amenities are subject to underwriting and safety guidelines – be sure to discuss your offered amenities with your account representative.)

  • Pros
    • At Proper, they have what’s called in-house claims administration, which means they administer the claim from start to finish themselves and do not use a third-party administrator.  The Proper Insurance Claims Department strives to create a seamless experience and get checks issued as soon as possible, as their sole interest is with the insured.
    • Proper is a cover holder for Lloyd's of London; this means that insurance policies written and bound by Proper also carry the backing of Lloyd's of London.  Be aware that Proper manages claims as opposed to Lloyd's of London.
    • Proper has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
    • Proper was specifically created to serve the needs of short-term vacation rental property owners.
    • Proper will make a free policy comparison.
  • Cons
    • Proper strives to provide ‘best in class" coverage for your business, which can come at a cost. As a vacation rental owner, you are a business owner; therefore, you need business insurance which can come at a higher cost than a regular homeowners policy. Be sure to read the details of the insurance quotes you receive from other companies and compare the coverages and exclusions.
    • The language of Proper policies could be written in a more customer-friendly manner. Compared to other companies we’ve reviewed, Proper’s policies can be especially wordy.

Overview

WYND Sentry is a smoke and noise monitoring solution for vacation rental properties. It monitors not only noise, but also recreational smoke (cigarettes and marijuana).  The Sentry system is sophisticated enough to distinguish between recreational smoke and other types of harmful smoke such as smoke from cooking.  It also generates incident reports to assist with submitting smoke mitigation claims.

Price

A free Sentry device is included with each subscription.

Price Per Device Subscription

$15/mo. if billed annually

$19/mo. if billed monthly

    Customer Support

    • Help library
    • Email support.
  • Pros
    • The Sentry device is free, customers only pay a reoccurring subscription per device.
    • Currently, WYND Sentry is the only noise monitoring solution that also detects smoke.
    • It is also the only company that currently provides incident reports. The incident reports provide specific documentation of the time periods smoke was detected and the amount of smoke detected (in parts per million).  This report eliminates the 'he said, she said' exchange between hosts and guests by providing concrete evidence of smoking.
    • The unit has an internal backup battery that lasts 48 hours. This eliminates the concern that guests could unplug the unit and avoid noise or smoke detection during a party.
    • Built-in tampering detection: The unit sends a push notification to the owner if the power or internet is disconnected.
  • Cons
    • WYND Sentry is a new player in the noise monitoring space.  Currently, it does not have integrations with any property management software companies, or smart home solutions.
    • It's more of an FYI than a con, but each WYND Sentry unit can monitor smoke for a space up to 400 sq ft.  It is  recommended to get units to cover high traffic common areas like living rooms and kitchens.  If desired, a unit can also be placed in halls to detect smoke from adjacent rooms.  Each unit is an individual subscription.

  • Features

    Rank and Pricing Hub  – This section of Rankbreeze gives a snapshot of how your properties are performing on Airbnb according to date and guest count.

    For example, if someone was looking for a home that sleeps eight guests from March 10-15, where would your property show up? Would it be the first result on page one, the 60th result on page 4, or the 187th result on page 11?

    Users can optimize their listings’ rank by using recommendations from the optimization hub, by purchasing Rankbreeze’s listing optimization service, or by implementing their own strategies to try to improve their listings’ performance on Airbnb.

    The optimization journal allows users to note the optimization actions they take and then come back and note how their listings’ rank changed after each optimization. Over time, this tracking can help users discover which optimizations have the most positive impact on their listings’ performance.

    • Competitor set – Users can manually create a competitor set and track competitors’ prices and minimum stay rules for future dates.

     

    Optimization Hub

    • Integrated keyword A.I. writer for titles & descriptions.
    • Keyword Ideas – Suggest keywords based on top-performing properties in your city and neighborhood.
    • Review Analyzer – Analyze your property’s and competitors’ reviews to find words and phrases that can improve your listing’s performance.
    • Amenities Analyzer – This shows the frequency of amenities in your area.
    • Tracks conversions, click-through rates & views for your listing.

     

    Market Scanner – The Market Scanner product has two main sections: the Market Report and the AirReview Pro Chrome extension.

    • Market Report Features – A market report can be generated for any market or neighborhood.
      • Lists top properties by revenue and features.
      • Identifies amenities common to the market.
      • Shows occupancy rates and average prices for the market.
      • Shows average fees and the discounts of competitors in that market.
    • AirReview Pro Chrome Extension – The AirReview Pro Chrome extension is used while surfing Airbnb to learn the performance details of specific listings. This can be used to research your competitors or to get a sense of how listings perform in a market you may be considering investing in. The AirReview Pro extension provides the following performance indicators:
      • Estimated revenue of any listing
      • Occupancy rates
      • Average daily rates

     

    Dynamic Pricing Feature – The Rankbreeze dynamic pricing feature can be activated by integrating Rankbreeze with your PMS. Currently, integrations are available for OwnerRez and Uplisting.
