Many travelers would rather spend their time in a furnished house than a hotel. You can earn some cash by renting out your home while you're away - it could pay for your vacation.
HomeAway will list your rental property for you. Fees start at $329 a year, but HomeAway will give all that money back if you don't find someone you can trust to stay in your home.
You can create a custom page for your listing complete with photos and even a Google map. Then, as renters show up, have them leave reviews on your page to entice more rentals.
You can even have HomeAway's staff check out your house personally and leave a professional review. Their staff will give you tips and tricks to increase your listing's effectiveness.
