List your home.
At Skyview, we understand that turning your property into a successful short-term vacation rental can seem like a daunting task. That’s why we offer a hassle-free transition process for existing vacation rentals, ensuring that you don’t lose any future bookings during the turnover.
Our team will work closely with your existing host and property manager to ensure a smooth process.

We’ll then work to install new technology, create detailed cleaning procedures, and make any necessary updates to ensure that your vacation rental is a success.
We know that the little details can make a big difference, which is why we’ll even create custom property signage to make sure your guests feel right at home from the moment they arrive.
Let us take care of everything so you can sit back, relax, and watch your property turn into a standout short-term vacation rental.
Below are details on the steps to transition your property to a short term rental with Skyview Vacation Homes.
Step 1: Meet with us.

Step 2: Property Onboarding
After our initial meeting, we’ll schedule a time to view your property. During this visit, we’ll provide you with feedback on any recommended steps and actions to get your property ready to be a short-term rental.
If your property is already an existing short-term rental, we’ll provide feedback on ways to maximize revenue and enhance the guest experience. We’ll also provide recommendations on design and security components, and provide you with a supplies list to ensure your rental is fully stocked and ready to go. Once we have shared this information, we will also provide the hosting agreement for your review and signature.
Once your property is fully furnished and decorated, we’ll schedule a professional photographer to take high-quality photos that showcase your rental in the best possible light. These photos will be used to market your rental on our website and other vacation rental platforms.
Step 3: Property Listing
At Sky View Vacation Homes, we know that creating an outstanding listing is key to attracting potential renters to your vacation rental property. That’s why we take the time to create and optimize your listing, using our expertise and knowledge of renter desires to create a listing that stands out from the crowd.
We’ll start by taking high-quality photos of your property and writing a compelling description that highlights its unique features and amenities. We’ll also optimize the listing with keywords and other tactics to ensure that it ranks well in search results and attracts the right kind of renters.
Once the listing is complete, we’ll post it on popular booking sites like Airbnb, VRBO, and others, as well as on our own direct booking website. This ensures that your rental reaches the widest possible audience and generates maximum bookings.
During this step, we’ll also integrate our technology with your property to provide a seamless booking and management experience.
Our technology features include:
- Channel Management System to prevent double bookings
- Automatic rental agreement & security deposit
- Dynamic Pricing Tools
- Cleaning Management System
- Communication/Messaging System
- Property Management System
- Owners Portal
- Remote Access to Thermostat
- Security Camera
- Keyless Entry System
Step 4: Go Live
That’s it! The property is up and running. From here on out, we will manage your property and communicate as necessary. Rental revenue is directly deposited to your bank account by online platforms.
