He started his VR Business with nothing more than a big passion for beautiful living spaces, almost no money to begin with and no experience in buying and renovating properties yet he had a strong determination to succeed paired with an incredibly creative approach to business and a very clear vision of where he wanted to be with his wife in ten years from the start of their incredibly rewarding journey, which led them to live the life they always wanted.
Alongside managing his properties remotely with just a laptop and an internet connection while traveling around the world for business and for pleasure, Antonio regularly speaks at major industry Vacation Rental conferences sharing his strategies for maximizing rental income.
The Vacation Rental World Summit is his way to bring real value to the whole community of likeminded Rentalpreneurs worldwide.
Top Strategies To Attract, Convert & Turn Guests into Repeat Customers, Raving Fans and Ambassadors Back Home
The VR Industry is quickly moving from a start up phase, where you could get enquiries and bookings fairly easily to a mature one where you no longer have the freedom and control over all aspects of your business that you used to have. Listing sites and OTAs define and limit your access to your clients information. Lobbies and interest groups push lawmakers to adopt restricting regulations. VRs are the next big thing and people are lured into a promise of easy money from renting their properties or investing in real estate in a frenzy gold rush. As a result, inventory increases and so does competition, while holiday makers stay virtually the same.
So in such a dynamic environment running a successful and profitable business gets harder every day.
