Earn more, work less and worry never.

This is rental management & local hosting as it should be.

Discover how we can help make your rental property a truly “passive investment”.


Local Hosting & Rental Management Made Easy!

PMBO®  was started back in 2004 as a direct response to the escalating costs for property management.  We figured that it simply could not be that difficult or expensive for the property owner to manage his/her own rental property, right?  Why should we as property owner have to share our investment by paying large amounts out in property management fees?  In some resort areas, you can pay up to and even more than 50% of the rental income earned just to the management companies.  Ouch!

But, we also realize that people are busy and it’s not that easy to manage your vacation home when you’re living out of town/state and have lots of distractions in all the other aspects of your life.  And, the landscape of the rental world is constantly changing.  It takes time to stay up on trends and maintain market shares.  And, today’s guests are demanding a more hands on approach.

Earn more, work less and worry never.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our goal with PMBO® was to put together a program to minimize the time that folks need to manage their vacation rental and maximize the profits that they can make in rental revenues, providing visibility and control to the property manager to earn more, and give you the tools needed to work less and never worry.

PMBO Logo would be in the center.
To the left, show the tools and resources, so mobile app, houskeeping app, local hosting app.
And, below – some of the main services – Sync Calendars, Sync Rates, Centralized Reservations, Automated Guest Communication, Save Time!

It doesn’t have to be crazy expensive to have supported rental management!  Our goal is to focus in on the areas that need the most support and to keep up with the ever-changing resort rental environment to maximize your over-all rental cash flow.  And, most importantly, we focus on providing visibility and communication tools – allowing you to do the things necessary to be “virtually” on-site and in-person to handle property set-up, ensure appropriate cleaning, local guest communication (today’s traveler has a LOT of questions) and the occasional difficult renter. ?


We Designed Our Software Specifically for the Individual Property Owner

(include in this section some features and unique aspects of PMBO – hopefully with some nice formatting and perhaps graphics.

PMBO was built for the individual property owner to allow property owners around the world to take advantage of channel distribution previously only offered by large integrated (and expensive) property management companies.

True By-Owner

The market place has changed a lot in the past few years. Most large By Owner sites are predominantly large property management companies and travel agencies. The By Owner marketplace has all but disappeared.

PMBO is reviving the true By Owner experience, with the property owner managing all aspects of the rental.

Automatic Inclusion in VTBO – Vacation Travel By Owner – Online Booking site.

All properties are automatically included in our online booking engine and marketing site VTBO. This site is being marketed as BY OWNER.
