Revenue Monitoring and Advanced Reporting
Use our Comparative Revenue graph to see how you are currently performing compared to previous years. This graphical report will help give you insight on whether there are changes in what vacation renters are willing to pay for your rental. The rental market is like the real estate market and your rates should fluctuate based on what the market is willing to pay. If your property is not getting booked this could be due to your pricing being too high. If your property is getting booked very quickly then this could be due to your pricing being too low.
The Booking Window report is a useful tools to help you determine what percentage of your inventory is getting booked in advance versus last minute. Utilize this feature to help you determine when the time is right to run Specials/Promos.
Our Rate report easily helps you determine your average nightly rate for specific periods of time so that you can effectively price your vacation rental for the upcoming year.
Use our Inquiry Source Reports to see where your bookings are coming from to determine whether a particular vacation rental website or marketing campaign you are using is actually working for you.
If you're processing credit card payments yourself, each reservation you enter in 2ndHome.net captures relevant information about the transaction such as the batch #, auth #, processing date, etc. so that you can easily find all of your credit card transactions and which bookings they pertain to.
Don't ever be left scratching your head trying to determine why you didn't break even in a particular month. Utilize our Cash Flow report to see when revenue is coming in from deposits and final payments.
You can set reminders in our system that are related to specific reservations. For example, if a guest requires a crib for their baby, you can set a reminder relating to that reservation and not only will the reminder be easily visible every time you log into the Admin system but you will also receive email reminders prior leading up to the guest's arrival.
