Property Manager Toolkit

New to HomeAway

Welcome to HomeAway! We're excited to have you; property managers like you are a vital part of the industry, and we are committed to helping you in every way we can. Here are a few basics to get you started.


Choose the right business model for you

Whether you manage 10 properties or more than 1,000, we have just the right solutions to maximize your business goals. Choose from a variety of business models designed to meet your needs, whether you manage properties that are popular year round, or seasonal resorts.


Using HomeAway tools vs. integrating existing software

There are two ways to manage your HomeAway listings. You can log in to your HomeAway account and use our tools, or if you already have property management software with one of our software partners, you can connect your listings to your existing software platform and manage it from there.


If you are using your own property management software, we recommend reading the section about managing with software to get the most accurate information.

Learn about your rental tax requirements

We are committed to helping you succeed in your vacation rental business. Part of being a successful property manager is collecting and remitting the correct taxes from your guests - but we can't do it for you. That's why we've partnered with MyLodgeTax to develop the MyLodgeTax Center.


This free online resource can help you understand the tax and licensing requirements for properties in your area. Just enter the rental's address to find out the local occupancy tax rate, how many returns are required annually, and how many consecutive nights are taxable. You can also see the number of local, county or state registration/licenses needed.

For additional information and support, you can connect with MyLodgeTax, a service that manages the entire registration, licensing, and tax payment process.
