Testimonials

We love earning income while we are traveling.

For the most part the owner experience is effortless. The best part is coming home to a spotless house and the knowledge that many families have enjoyed a wonderful vacation in our home.

- Santa Barbara Owners since 2015

I know the quality of services and properties and didn’t want to risk going elsewhere.

(on booking another InvitedHome property)

- Maui Owner since 2015

The team has been a dream to work with in making our home rental experience easy.

They made a realistic assessment of the home’s rental potential (twice what another management firm estimated), and has hit and surpassed that every year.

- Breckenridge Owner since 2010

I have been extremely happy having InvitedHome manage my property.

Everything runs smoothly and all of the staff are a delight to deal with. I’ve toyed with the idea of purchasing another vacation rental property and only want to do that in an area served by InvitedHome!

Case Solutions

Homecraft case

Case Study: Accountability

Cause: Homeowner Leaves for Lower Management Fee

Sometimes the allure of lower fees can feel far too tempting. We understand. First know that with InvitedHome, you’ll never experience hidden fees. And with our purpose-built HomeCraft™ Dashboard, you’ll be able to clearly see the customized Cash, Care and Communication you’ll receive...always as advertised.

Effect: Homeowner Returns 5 Months Later

On the surface, the competitor’s technology and services seemed to be on par with InvitedHome’s. But as this homeowner discovered, transparency and care were anything but. An influx of younger, 2-night travelers were rushed in. Maintenance was sacrificed as a result. And with longer reservations at reliable rental rates now gone, it became impossible to keep the home in good shape.

Solution: Homeowner Leaves Worrying to InvitedHome

Maintaining your home in pristine condition requires an appropriate amount of time throughout the year to do it – and do it right. When it comes to short-term rentals, InvitedHome always aims to partner with you for the long haul. And you can’t put a price on that kind of peace of mind.

It seems to always be true, that you get what you pay for...

InvitedHome Story

Homecraft story house

In 2005, our CEO Michael Joseph decided to experience the ski life and bought a place in Lake Tahoe with the hope of eventually renting the property. When he looked around for professional assistance, there simply wasn’t a high-quality option available. That day—while realizing the lack of standards in a very fragmented industry —an idea sparked for what is today, InvitedHome. The next ten years were spent building an experienced team and purpose-built the technology to support the framework for our success. We call this technology HomeCraft™—a proprietary system that transparently manages the Cash, Care, and Communication for every homeowner we serve. Today, InvitedHome is a leading hospitality company catering to resort luxury markets in some of the finest locations in the country. We’re a vacation home management company in the business of creating fond memories while providing peace of mind to our homeowners. We want you to discover that high quality vacation home management is the key to consistently experiencing the joy-filled moments you cherish. You imagine the possibilities, and we’ll turn them into realities.

Today, InvitedHome is a leading hospitality company catering to resort luxury markets in some of the finest locations in the country.
