Pricing at Houfy
HOUFY is FREE and will stay free for basic listings!
Our mission is 0% owner commissions, no guest service fees, and to make sure that you can connect directly with your clients on our online marketplaces.
Houfy is a market network and can be used in different ways to get the word out. Many members are using Houfy's embed tools on their own websites (calendar, reviews, pricing, quote) and writing local guides and stories.
Paid services (starting sometime in 2020) will most probably be for extra marketing channels, featured listings and owner website creation.
Please be advised we are still working on Houfy and improving the site daily. To learn more: Join us @ Say Yes to Houfy on Facebook!

Why is Houfy free?
- Houfy is free because we are still very much developing the site. We need all of you to check on things.. for example in Europe our members use Pounds and Euro's. The calculations are different. There are 100s of little issues we fix/change/edit etc.
- The same is true for our social site, there are many little things going on there..
- I do not know where to spend any funds received. I really dislike spending funds on a highway billboard and not getting any return out of it.. I just do not know.
- Spending funds on facebook ads - does that really work? I do not know.. I tested it and I was absolutely not happy with the results.. So, we all and I need to figure out a way HOW we can use funds in the BEST way possible to gain MAXIMUM return. This is something we'll need to research the next few years.
I will refuse to spend any signifiant funds to promote your listings.. There have been NO large investments made in any short term vacation rental marketplace businesses for many reasons and I think I understand that very well. (It would be an extremely risky investment with a very low probability of success as the marketing expenses are soooo high)
Once we start charging for certain services within our site, I promise I will share our Income & Expenses with all of you. Houfy for me is a group project. I need to make it succeed. And this has nothing to do with personal financial gain or selling Houfy out to some other company.. Houfy is not for sale.
We will continue making Houfy better every day with all of the comments in our facebook group/e-mails we receive and private messages. This takes time and I hope many of you have the patience to stay and watch the development.
Houfy is continuing to grow at for us a perfect pace. Listings are being added every day and we are seeing inquiries come in with some being redirected to members own websites. Direct bookings are picking up as well which is VERY exiting!
For now, we will focus on our product and try to make Houfy one of the best/most user friendly direct VR websites out there.
