We urge all Users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing or purchasing rental rights. We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any vacation rental property listed on a Site. rented.com and other Sites act as a venue to allow property owners and asset managers who advertise on the Site (each, a "Owner") to offer for sale in a variety of pricing formats, specific blocks of time (herein referred to as "Rental Rights") at the corresponding rental property, real or personal (herein referred to as the "Property") to potential Property Managers (each, a "Property Manager" and, as a group the "Property Managers"). The Terms shall be binding on Owners and Property Managers (collectively referred to as "Users" herein). Sites also may offer other tools or services or provide various ways for Users to communicate with one another and enter into exclusive rental rights agreements.
We are not involved in any transaction between Users even though we may from time to time provide tools that relate to a transaction, such as a tool to enable a Property Manager to enter into a transaction to purchase specific Rental Rights directly from an Owner. As a result, any part of an actual or potential transaction between an Owner and a Property Manager, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the Properties and related Rental Rights advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any property), the ability of Users to offer the Rental Rights, and for the Rental Rights to be valid, and the ability of Property Manager to close on the transaction are solely the responsibility of each User. You acknowledge and agree that you may be required to enter into a separate agreement and/or waiver prior to purchasing Rental Rights or purchasing a product or service and may place additional restrictions on your Rental Rights, product or service.
Responsibility for applicable laws, rules and regulations: Users agree that they are responsible for, and agree to abide by, all laws, rules and regulations applicable to their use of the Site, their use of any tool, service or product offered on the Site and any transaction they enter into on the Site or in connection with their use of the Site.

Travel Advisories: It is the User's responsibility to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to purchasing Rental Rights.

For example, you might say: "Check out my Property on rented.," or "I list properties on rented." However, you may not refer to rented., rented.com, VacationFutures, VacationFutures.com, VacationFutures, Inc., or any of our affiliates in any way that might lead someone to believe that your company or site is sponsored by, affiliated with, or endorsed by rented. or VacationFutures, Inc. or one of our affiliates.

You may not use the rented., rented.com, VacationFutures, VacationFutures.com, VacationFutures, Inc., name or one of our affiliates' names on any other website that lists vacation rentals without our prior written authorization.
The rented. name and logo and those of the rented. Group and our affiliates are registered trademarks in the United States and other jurisdictions around the world.

(a) The property in an advertisement may not be substituted for another Property without our consent. We may approve a request if the Property that was listed was sold or the contract with the owner was cancelled and the User provides sufficient proof thereof and completes any additional request forms we may request. The term of the registration for any substituted Property shall be the same as the term of the originally listed Property (i.e., the term will not be extended past the original term).
If a member submits changes to an existing listing that, if approved, would substantially alter the listing to make it that of another property, then we have the right to terminate the listing and may choose, in our sole discretion, to retain any fees associated with the term of the previously existing listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.

Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site (together, the "Service") and to enable Users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us through the Site and become a Registered User and when you choose to post a property's Rental Rights or book Rental Rights, or when you wish to contact another User, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Identity Information"). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address, social security number (SSN), and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site, we may also ask for your credit card number and other billing information ("Billing Information") (Identity Information and Billing Information together, "Personal Information"). If the address of a Property you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information. Some Personal Information is required, like your name and email address, and other Personal Information is optional. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service and administer your inquiries.
We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to join the Service. You can register to join via the Site by completing the required forms.
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your rented. Account profile (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic information) ("NonIdentifying Information"). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non- Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other rented. Users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with rented. newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Site, whether as a Registered User or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "rented.

This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the Site's technical administration, to increase our Site's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Our Site may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Site are used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to rented. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your rented. Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
The Site and Service can be used to facilitate the listing of Properties Rental Rights and booking of said Rental Rights. Listings for such Rental Rights are made available via the Site and Service by Owners. Listings posted by Owners and ratings and reviews of Owners and Property Managers are visible to any rented.

Rental Rights Listings
If you create a Rental Rights listing, we may publish that listing publicly via the Site and may enable third parties to publish your Listing on their websites through the use of an HTML "widget". We may also display the geographical location of your Listing in the form of a map so that potential Property Managers can see the general area and neighborhood of your listing.

Owners, (ii) any qualifying information, including relevant licensing information, you provided at the time of registration, (iii) information regarding your transactional history on rented., and (iv) user reviews. This information will help the Owner to decide whether to confirm or reject your booking. When an Owner confirms a booking we will open the "Due Diligence" capabilities enabling the Owner and Property Manager to conduct their own due diligence on the other party prior to entering into the transaction. In no event is a Property Manager's Billing Information shared with an Owner.
We may, at our sole and absolute discretion, check your relevant license record to ensure you and your property meet rented.’s safety standards.

Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, fraud detection services relating to the activity of rented.

We take reasonable technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by the Site reduce our vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures in place to protect our user database and access to this database is restricted internally. However, it remains your responsibility:
· To protect against unauthorized access to your use of the Site;
· To ensure no-one else uses the Site while your machine is logged on to the Site (including by logging on to your machine through a mobile, Wi-Fi or shared access connection you are using);
· To log off or exit from the Site when not using it;
· Where relevant, to keep your password or other access information secret. Your password and log in details are personal to you and should not be given to anyone else or used to provide shared access for example over a network; and
· To maintain good internet security. For example if your email account or Facebook account is compromised this could allow access to your account with us if you have given us those details and/or permitted access through those accounts. If your email account is compromised it could be used to ask us to reset a password and gain access to your account with us. You should keep all of your account details secure. If you think that any of your accounts has been compromised you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular make sure any compromised account does not allow access to your account with us. You should also tell us as soon as you can, so that we can try to help you keep your account secure and if necessary warn anyone else who could be affected. If you have asked us to share data with third party sites, however (such as Facebook) their servers may not be secure. Credit card information is generally stored by our credit card processing partners and we ask them to keep that data secure. We also use third parties to help us optimize our website flow, content and advertising (see below).
Note that, despite the measures taken by us and the third parties we engage, the internet is not secure. As a result others may nevertheless unlawfully intercept or access private transmissions or data.
Links to Other Websites
Our Site contains links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by "clicking on" a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
With your consent we may post your testimonial on the Site along with your name. If you want your testimonial removed please contact us.

Welcome to the first Rented.com Short Term Rental Income Report.
Recent years have seen unprecedented growth within the vacation rental and short-term rental sectors. Though the traditional vacation rental industry has been thriving for decades, it was really with the more recent astronomic growth in popularity of Airbnb that the broader short-term rental, or alternative accommodation sector, came to the general public’s attention.
No longer are travelers only exploring “alternative” accommodations (i.e., not hotels) when they visit beach and ski markets on vacation; they are also increasingly turning to them for city breaks and even business trips. For this reason, rather than limit the report to vacation rental markets, the Rented.com Report spans 120 markets for which there is short-term rental demand across the entire United States.
So what new does the report look at for these markets? There is already the National Association of Realtors’® annual Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey that looks at second home sales across the country. There are also TripAdvisor’s reports on the most popular vacation rental destinations from a traveler’s perspective.
But while these existing reports cover what is popular with homeowners and what is popular with guests, neither brings the two together to answer one critical question we constantly get at Rented.com:
The Rented.com Short-term Rental Income Report addresses this head on.
Looking at the costs of homeownership versus the short-term rental potential across 120 US markets, Rented.com is pleased to provide the first publicly available objective assessment of short-term rentals from an investor’s perspective.
The costs of homeownership include a variety of factors from purchase price and local property taxes, to home insurance, maintenance, and more. The short-term rental potential pulls from a variety of sources, including actual Rented.com demand from management companies in these markets, Everbooked occupancy and rental rate projections, and the current legal situation in each market. As all of these factors are subject to change, we intend this to be a report that is updated annually at a minimum.
To begin, there are some results that are likely counterintuitive to many.
It is not the flashy markets with the highest nightly rates (and also many of the toughest HOA and rental restrictions) that are necessarily the best investments. If they are popular with everyone, the purchase price is also high, diminishing any potential returns.
On the other hand, less well known markets that are still popular with travelers (markets like Gatlinburg where you can find a five-bedroom house for less than $300,000) can make great investments. Because these markets are often highly dependent on vacation rentals to drive visitors and bring money into the coffers of the local government, they also tend to be some of the most friendly towards short-term renting. To check the local regulations in your market, view our Short Term Rental Regulations Tracker.
These markets bring together a killer combination from an investor’s perspective: attractive purchase price, relatively high rental demand, and typically light regulation.
When seen in this light, this makes other results far from surprising. For example, of course Florida takes four out of our top ten spots given the state government has explicitly recognized and embraced the positive economic benefits from short-term rentals, and thus has banned local governments from restricting them.
All of this to say, we hope you enjoy the first ever Rented.com Short Term Rental Income Report.
