As of September 30, 2015, VacationFutures has rebranded as Rented.com.
The move signifies the company’s expansion into the broader sharing economy, a space made popular by Uber and Airbnb that PwC projects will grow from $15B to $335B by 2025.
Rented.com professionalizes the sharing economy through “outright sharing,” the idea that assets can be better utilized, and asset owners will profit more when those assets are put into the hands of professional managers for full-time rental. In professionalizing the sharing economy, Rented.com helps owners generate maximum income from many types of unused assets while mitigating the hassle and risk associated with asset sharing.
Why are we rebranding?
As we grew in the vacation rental industry, two things occurred:
- First, we received multiple requests from properties that were not in traditional “vacation” destinations, and properties in major metropolitan areas increasingly became a more important part of our marketplace.
- Second, we began receiving requests for other types of high-value property such as boats, jet-skis, and planes.
We realized there was a much bigger need across a variety of high-value/low-usage assets, and there was potential in renting out those assets in one, easy transaction.
Whether you have a house, condo, townhouse, boat, car, power tool, or any under-utilized asset from which you want to earn income, you can stop worrying about it.
Working with us, you can have a sense of comfort, an assured feeling that things are taken care of. A sense of confidence, comfort, and completion.
Now you can:
Relax. It’s rented.
