Hello! I am a new homeowner in Corolla in the Outer Banks. I have it listed with a property management company, but want to help promote it myself. Have any other vacation rental owners tried free listing services? I found one last night that looks good - vacationrentalconnection.com. There are a ton of Outer Banks houses in there already, but before I try it I wanted to see if anyone else has any experience. Thanks for any help. This is our first year in a rental program and I'm worried about the housing market...

I would also post in craigslist: outer banks classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events it is a very popular site for people from out of town to go too.

Default You could also try www.outerbanksjourney.com

Here is another site which is offering Free postings. From here you can link to your main posting, (at your property management company). Wouldn't hurt to have as many listings as possible, for people to see.

I rent my townhouse on Topsail Island during the summer. I haven't tried any of the free sites lately. I have two paid sites I use that do fine in filling my schedule - VRBO.com and Cyberentals - both having been bought up by Homeaway in the last couple of years. I'd encourage you to try out the free sites, it certainly can't hurt, but some that I tried brought no inquiries at all. Advertising my place on the internet certainly has been more successful than my experience with rental agents. I stuck with an agency the first two years, but after a summer with two weeks total rented I said I certainly couldn't do worse than that. I haven't looked back, I ussually have no trouble filling my high season.
