Owners of second homes who rent them during the holiday season or throughout the year must implement a system of controls to ensure profitability without falling prey to fraud. VRMA member HOM Group hosts more than 300 Chilean properties spread across the luxury second-home HOM Collection arm, the urban lease-focused By HOM business, and leading Chilean vacation rental provider HOM Rentals. "Our platform is connected to Airbnb, Booking, VRBO, Trip Advisor, and other applications, among others, and we have several pages that generate direct reservations," says HOM Group CEO Cristián Waidele. "But this is only a scattering, because our service includes the coordination of stays, check-in and check-out, communication with tenants, cleaning and cleaning, debt collection and payments, everything to offer a quality service that both the host as well as the guests feel comfortable, so they don't have to worry about anything." AirDNA gives HOM the highest rating as a corporate host in Chile. "Anyone who wants to rent an apartment with all the comforts in a listed building in the center of Santiago can do so through By HOM, which has an electronic entrance door, exquisite beds and linens, a coffee maker, high-speed Internet, very good decoration, and convenience and proximity to tourist areas, shops, and the subway are other advantages of the location," notes Waidele. He says HOM Collection "is focused on making second homes profitable and giving them a new look at a very good level through our technology and service."
