Nederland (and SkyRun locations overall) is beating the market averages

Vacation Rental Industry Data Analytic Provider ‘Key Data’ report that so far this COVID-effected year, that the total revenue generated from vacation renals in the US is down over 10% from what it was in 2019 (see their data below)

We’ve heard this same story from some of our competitors.  However our data (also from the KeyData service that SkyRun subscribes to) shows that SkyRun over all is UP 17% and SkyRun in Nederland is up an incredible 61% so far 2020 over 2019.  And this while we’re leaving one night free between rentals as additional COVID protection for our staff and guests.

We credit our success to your great homes which you’ve been maintaning well so we get good guest reviews, but also our dynamic pricing algorythms.  Our dynamic pricing may not fill out your calendar the most far in advance, but they DO fill the calendar out for the best price.  They seem to be working.

Mostly, we have in Vacation Rentals (and the Nederland area in particular) what guests want.  A quiet and safe place to be with family that is self-contained with a kitchen.  The word ‘cabin’ has skyrocketed as the most popular search term for finding accomodations.  People want what we have.

Our overall occupancy for july was 73% and august is 68%.  note that sept is typically 25% and oct and nov are typically 5-10%.  We’re already higher than those numbers in 2020 and we’ll see if dynamic pricing will raise them even higher.  I’ll update this article.
