Much like FSBO or property that is For Sale by Owner, Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO) is a great way to find a vacation rental property without the hassle and expense of dealing with property management companies or realtors.

By searching for a vacation rental property on VRBO you not only get to save money and some additional hassle by eliminating the middleman but you also get a huge variety of properties to choose from. VRBO has properties from every state in the United States in addition to cabins and beach rental units in a huge number of beautiful and exotic locales.

You can also choose your vacation rental based on specifications other than location, look for beach front property or a vacation rental that is close to local attractions. You can find a rental based on the number of bedrooms and the style of home you’d like to stay in.

Be wary though when using VRBO, this is just a resource for finding your vacation rental property, it does not guarantee that the people renting their property are being honest or fair in their pricing. It’s up to you to do your own research to determine that you’re getting what you bargained for.
