Hopefully not a sign of things to come but this year has, so far, been sooooo slow. I’m certain competition has increased in Seattle and it didn’t help that Wheelhouse was pricing us out of the market; they seem to not have good algorithms for the off-season when vacancies are high. We’ve “fired” Wheelhouse and just went back to Beyond Pricing.
Additionally, our search ranking has been terrible with our listing not appearing for most possible combinations of stays except when we get within days of the available dates. I really hate how the Air search works in a giant market like Seattle.
I hate to say it but maybe the City of Seattle regulation of STRs going into effect 2019 will be good for our listing. The multi-listing corporate players will have their listings culled, sending more traffic in our direction.
Any other Seattleites or other folks having an unusually slow year?
