With the rise of online sharing platforms for vacation rentals, like Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, and FlipKey, opportunities for fraudulent property listings also increase. Vacation renters can protect themselves by using property inspection companies like WeGoLook this Halloween.
With the rise of online sharing platforms for vacation rentals, like Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, and FlipKey, one company, WeGoLook has created a solution to ensure the potential online rentals are not “haunted” houses this Halloween.
While renting vacation homes online has flexibility and price point perks, the inherent risks may outweigh the benefits. Properties go through a very brief vetting process that can easily be forged or misrepresented leaving consumers with a “haunted” vacation home situation. However, WeGoLook offers vacationers the opportunity to verify the owner’s claims before traveling to their destination.
How it works: Vacationers find the property they are interested in renting. Then, they order a WeGoLook Property Inspection Report on www.wegolook.com. A local Agent (Looker) is dispatched to the property on their behalf to take photos, a video tour of the property, and collect on-site information. The information is compiled into a Report and sent back to the vacationer to decide if they wish to rent the property.
WeGoLook has helped customers save thousands of dollars by avoiding rental deposits and travel expenses that were not accurately represented, as well as giving clients a peace of mind in dealing with online transactions.
