Why would they NOT share their own website??? Or their Houfy Listing?
Do owners understand they are promoting AIRBNB and VRBO? Promoting "service fees". I understand you love them! I do not understand that so many people love them!
Then I see owners share their listing of "service free" marketplaces, I think owners pay a fixed yearly listing fee for most of these. The owner of this marketplace might or might not invest in advertising, so what is this yearly fee being paid for? and is it a credible venture with future potential?
I wonder, if anyone knows the TOTAL of fees and costs, paid yearly by us owners & our guests to be able to market on these sites?
If someone looks for Florida and you post your own website, you will need to be real lucky to get the booking! That someone will need to like your place/price and your property will need to be available.. Hmm.. don't get that one!
