Our mission is to connect people with places directly.

HOUFY derived its name from “HOUse For You”

What does Houfy mean? Nothing - Alt. Meaning from names.org:

HOUFY is the next step in the evolution of online vacation rental marketing. We’ve created a platform where people can connect with property owners/managers and agents without the control of a middleman (like VRBO/HomeAway, AirBnB, etc)

How does Houfy make money? I’ve never used this site before. How do people pay and how is the money put into the owners account?

Welcome Deborah!

  1. Houfy will be making money in the future by ads/specials and website creation.
  2. Guests can pay on Houfy only where owners connected their listings to Stripe/Square. Funds go directly to the owners or managers account at Stripe or Square. Owners/Managers who did not connect to Stripe or Square take payments outside Houfy directly from their guests.
