So how much are property owners earning?

According to HomeAway aka VRBO in their 2014 vacation rental report, more than half (54%) of property owners cover at least 3/4 of their mortgage by renting their home to travellers. On average, HomeAway vacation rental owners are generating an average annual income of $27,260.

Some owners simply want to cover a few basic costs and may rent out one room a week here and there, where others, roughly 19%, expect to cover all of their expenses as well as profit.  If you want to learn more, simply click on their REPORT .
