Some of our users reached out to us at the start of the new year to let us know that Perfect Price has been shut down. After looking into this, we have confirmed this is sadly true. We don't know if there is a transition plan in place for current users, and we are hoping to find out more soon. If you need another dynamic pricing option right now check out PriceLabs or Beyond Pricing.
Starting January 15th, Malibu California will implement a new ordinance governing short-term rentals. Rental property owners are required to pay a $294 application fee annually and submit a permit to the City of Malibu in order to continue renting. Applications can take up to 30 days for the city to review, so get yours in ASAP if you own short-term rentals in Malibu!
The Global Networking Experience (GNEX) has decided to reschedule their 2021 conference to May 17-19th. GNEX is a vacation ownership industry event for senior-level executives heavily focused on networking. The rescheduling is of course due to Covid-19, as they only received around 50% of their expected registrations for a “normal year”. We know most OwnerRez users aren’t rubbing shoulders with hotel financiers but this is an interesting group to watch nonetheless!
