Southern Rentals & Real Estate's Competitive Advantage in the Vacation Rental Industry


Southern Leads the Market with Technology-Driven Advancements

DESTIN, Fla. (PRWEB) August 28, 2018

For over 20 years, Southern Rentals & Real Estate has been a proven leader in the vacation rental management industry. By making forward-thinking, strategic advancements, Southern sets the bar in the vacation rental market. Southern's belief is that by listening to clients, the company is able to make industry-leading advancements.

With dedicated Portfolio Managers taking care of a submarket of properties, Southern is able to give a higher level of attention to each property, ensuring it is well-maintained and held to Southern's Standards. By limiting the number of properties each Portfolio Manager has, Southern is also able to proactively provide exceptional service by keeping in consistent contact with all owners.

Another industry-leading trend that separates Southern from the rest is the Dynamic Pricing approach. Rates are dynamically adjusted on a continuing basis, taking into consideration key indicators. Southern uses a combination of data in its algorithms to determine the rates. These include supply and demand as well as competitive pricing, peak pricing, event-based pricing, historical data, and more. Southern also uses an artificial intelligence system to do the research, pricing, and updating, while the Revenue team oversees, analyzes, adjusts and forecasts. Southern's hybrid approach of machine and people is a Southern advantage in vacation rental management.

"One key advantage of working with Southern is the level of service," said Chad Blankenship, General Manager for Southern Rentals & Real Estate. "By implementing software and organizational systems aimed at increasing the level of attention, we plan to fully exceed our customers' and owners' expectations."

When it comes to partnering with Southern, the outcome is clear: Southern's vision to be the most caring vacation rental management company along the Gulf Coast is echoed throughout its actions, whether it's through creating software systems or modifying organizational charts to better serve guests and owners.
