What is price optimization?

Price Optimization Wheelhouse

 

Like everything else involved in running your vacation rental business, things can be optimized to be more efficient and produce better results. The pricing of your listing is one of the most important things to optimize as it can greatly increase your take home profit. Price optimization, in a few words, is adjusting the price to stay at your property depending on the external factors surrounding your property. These external factors include, but are not limited to: season, location, and events that are happening nearby. Think of the car sharing platform Uber, they are notorious for offering surge pricing during peak hours — that is, they increase the price to ride when many customers are looking for rides.

 

This same process applies to your business. If you modify the pricing structure to take into consideration the different factors, your take home pay will undoubtedly be much higher than usual. Situations like New Years Eve, or a fan expo near you are great times to hike up the prices so that you get the most money out of your property. Manually modifying your pricing can be quite arduous and leave you feeling overwhelmed which is why there are many dynamic pricing tools available that can help.

 

We’ve integrated with Wheelhouse, a dynamic pricing tool that aims to remove all of the guessing when it comes to pricing your property. Wheelhouse uses unique algorithms and past reservation history to determine what the best price is for your property given that day, time, and location. This can not only increase your revenue but will also give you peace of mind.
