What homeowners say about us
Wow, where do I begin with Bennington. I was with another rental agency in SUNRIVER for 20 years and was averaging $15,000 annual gross income on my home. I switched on June 15 of 2017 and grossed well over my best year with the prior company in less than 6 months. Subsequent years continue to be more than twice the income. Bennington is excellent at using all resources to generate income for my home. The cleaning and care of the home is superior and the complete staff is most responsive to your every need.
Their responsiveness is top-notch, they go out of their way to solicit input and feedback from the owners, and they act on the feedback. The company works hard to meet the owner’s goals in terms of rental revenue while being very flexible about each owners’ goals for personal use.
We find that Bennington is very progressive with the rental pricing that they offer. They are well tuned to the current rental marketplace and are always monitoring the suggested price per night, and possible new options that they can offer to attract new customers. They have rented the house constantly, providing a very nice revenue stream that pays the bills! We are not "fee'd" to death. Housekeeping does a great job of keeping things cleaned and maintained, and if there is something that needs attention, we are promptly notified and usually given options.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of vacation rentals vs. traditional lease agreements?
Vacation rentals are more flexible and lucrative than standard leases, giving you the ability to earn more and diversify risk across multiple tenants. With traditional leases, you don’t get to use the property and can’t change prices easily. You may even need to spend your own marketing dollars to find tenants or hire an agent to do it for you.
Why should I work with Bennington Properties over Airbnb?
The problem is many vacation rentals lack the customer service and responsiveness you need to rent with confidence. Airbnb is more work-intensive because it will fall on you, the host, to ensure the property is in tip-top shape all the time and manage communications. Managing your housekeeping, property maintenance, and supplies all yourself, increases your operating costs and headaches.
At Bennington Properties, we handle those things for you. As a rental partner, you’ll receive 24/7 year-round care that includes: housekeeping services, property maintenance, property inspections, and complimentary toiletries at no extra charge. We also pay all credit card fees, state and country lodging taxes, and will provide you financial assistance to upgrade your home.
Do you do any advertising?
We’ll market and promote your property to over 35,000 of our current customers, and on sites like Sunriver Blog, VRBO, Airbnb, Facebook, Instagram and Google.
What are property owners responsible for?
Homeowners need to acquire vacation rental insurance and ensure all utilities are active, including weekly hot tub service.
How do you protect owners from property damage?
We inspect for damage after every departure, hold guests accountable for damage they cause, and we cover up to $2500 in damage costs per reservation.
How much does it cost to rent out my property?
We charge a commission only. No hidden fees or nickel-and-diming. Our commission is determined based on your needs and goals. However, lower commissions with fees are available if you prefer.
How and when will I receive payments?
Once guests depart, you’ll receive payments and a monthly statement by the 15th of the following month. All payments, rates, and upcoming reservations can be viewed inside our member portal.
