Vacation Rental Industry Reports

Since HomeAway's inception in 2005, the company has been committed to revolutionizing the relatively uncharted territory that is the online vacation rental industry. Prior to HomeAway, there was little research about the category and the driving forces behind its success.

HomeAway has invested considerable resources to help provide insight and identify trends in the rapidly growing vacation rental industry. The Vacation Rental Report (VRR), Vacation Rental Marketplace Report (VRM) and the jointly produced Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey (NAR) from the National Association of Realtors and HomeAway represent some of the best data regarding vacation rentals, their owners, and the industry itself.

HomeAway's suite of surveys regarding the vacation rental industry is updated on a biannual basis. For more information, please contact or call 512-505-1548.
