As explained by Laura Rivera Casares, responsible for homeaway.es, with more than one million empty homes in Spain, great difficulties to sell properties and a growing number of foreclosures, in these moments, the rental of accommodations by holiday seasons is a superb option for revenue and helped homeowners keep their property and prevent defaults. On the other hand, international visibility that manage Spanish property thanks to our Internet platform breaks the seasonality that suffers from tourism in Spain, still very linked to the summer season. The majority owner’s profile that uses homeaway.es is a person, aged 41-65, not necessarily very familiar with the use of new technologies. The use of the portal by gender difference is not significant since 50.4% are males and 49.6% women. Source: Press release sent by homeaway.
