    NEW YORK, NY, August 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Vacation rental homeowners and travelers are angry, and they have good reason to be. Large corporations are buying up vacation rental sites and forcing undesirable changes on owners and travelers, which are increasing fees and reducing service levels. These changes are creating an unprecedented level of anger and anxiety for owners and travelers. One enthusiastic entrepreneur is doing something about it. Melissa Palmeri just launched New York Rental By Owner (

"As a vacation rental owner myself, I naturally listed my units on the big three listing sites. In the last 12 to 18 months, I've been receiving notifications from them about increasing fees and forcing restrictions on my direct communication with potential travelers," explained Palmeri. "I did some research and came to the realization that these changes seem to be the result of a very large business transaction involving the big three listing sites." Palmeri is referencing that in 2015 Expedia purchased VRBO/HomeAway.

"After that transaction, owners' subscription fees have gone up significantly, and importantly these now corporate listing sites are eliminating direct contact with potential travelers," said Palmeri. "There are many more restrictions and new rules. Owners I talked with are angry, and worried over the future of their businesses. In fact, some owners feel compelled to sell their properties because they can't manage them the way want too and fear their bookings will decrease over time."

"On top of squeezing owners, listing sites are now assessing significant fees on travelers (up to 15%). I can't begin to tell you how many travelers I've had to talk with and had to explain that it's not me increasing their fees. Travelers too are angry. All of this is damaging for the industry and know one wins except for large corporations."

Most of the vacation rental industry are small mom and pop independent owners. Some are retirees who depend on the income, and some are younger couples using their life savings to purchase a home starting a plan for retirement security.

"My mission is simple," explained Melissa Palmeri. "New York Rental By Owner is a vacation rental listing site that has no booking fees, directly connects travelers and owners with no communication restrictions, to save money and increase bookings for both owners and travelers."

Palmeri went on to explain, "to our owners, it's YOUR home, manage it YOUR way. To our travelers, there are no hidden or deceptive booking fees and that means more money in your pocket to travel and vacation more."

Melissa Palmeri provides a FREE 6-month listing to owners who list their property on and should they choose to subscribe, yearly subscriptions will be $99 per listing. She promises there will be no "winners and losers" with some houses getting more favorable treatment than others and there will be something for every guest's budget from cozy cottages to luxurious accommodations.
