Flat Rate Fee of $397 a month
One of the many ways we stand out from conventional vacation rental companies is our flat-rate fee approach. The flat-rate approach allows us to provide better service than you’ve ever had at a cost that’s lower than you’ve ever paid. Plus it gives you a projectable cost table with no surprises and provides us with a projectable revenue model that ensures security for both of us.
We have built a family and it’s important that everyone is happy.
Just look at the table above and compare the pricing to what you currently pay. We know this doesn’t work for everyone, but it’s worked splendidly for the current wide variety of owner-clients that are with us. And for those of you with high-end properties that worry that our low rates indicate an inability to cater to a higher end owner, please reconsider us. We have several very high-end properties and are attracting much more every month.
We are a full service management company, and we handle all aspects from rentals (obviously), cleaning, maintenance, taxes and upkeep. We don’t nickel and dime our owners and our flat rate maintenance fee (starts at $35/mo) covers most regular maintenance issues.
For our owner-clients that have a gulf-front single family home or townhome that is 3 bedrooms or larger, the management fee is $497 per month.
We market each property individually
We are small, and because we are small, we can market each property individually. We have found that, generally speaking, properties that are marketed individually have higher occupancy rates and a higher average nightly rate than properties that are managed as part of a pool.
Larger companies spend millions of dollars marketing their company in hopes of generating enough interest to filter down bookings to each of your properties they manage. Their “system” is supposed to randomly and evenly assign reservations to your property without bias.
Each of our properties are treated special and receive:
- A page on our website (example)
- HD video tour
- High resolution, wide-angle photos
- Dedicated VRBO listing (cost covered by owner, it’s worth it)
- Dedicated email marketing database
On our program, individual owners are rewarded for their amazing rental condo because we highlight what makes it amazing and provide visibility for it that leads to bookings. Each inquiry that comes in is property specific, which means we can maximize all occupancy opportunities for your property. You don’t have to worry about leads that should be yours going into another property.
All email inquiries answered within minutes
The founders of Panama City Beach Luxury Properties have a tech background, and with that, technology has played an essential role in systematizing and streamlining everything. A huge part of that is our Automated Inquiry Response Dashboard. Each inquiry that comes in through VRBO (90% of all inquiries) is responded to with a customized and personalized quote within minutes. Even in the middle of the night.
Then usually within minutes after the response goes out, the inquires get a phone call from us following up to answer more questions and sell them on our winning personalities andy why they need to stay with us.
It’s this personalized, inquiry-specific approach that results in a higher reservation closing ratio than most.
Make adjustments to maximize occupancy
Another great element to having a fantastic and powerful system is that we can make adjustments to take advantage of opportunities. Through our system, we keep close tabs on reservation ratios, monitor rate performance per period and run promotions where we need to fill gaps. We do all sorts of fun things ranging from targeted email blasts to our large database, Facebook promotions, or publish specials on our sister site PCBDaily.com.
We have an extremely good feel for the market, when demand is the strongest (and when it’s not) and use that leverage to take advantage of every rental opportunity we can find.
Customer service based
Let’s face it, any business owner would love to have a cash machine in which they can just “set it and forget it.” But, the vacation rental business is not one of those machines. Serving guests coming to the beach is a very customer service intensive business and we take the responsibility of being tourist’s portal to the beach very seriously. Our staff always wears a smile while on the phone with guests.
When people come to the beach, it is crucial they have a great experience. Everything from the reservation to the check-in to the check-out experience needs to run smoothly and feel good to the guest. Good experiences lead to word of mouth marketing, which makes everyone’s job easier.
We own PCBDaily.com
In 2006, the CEO of Panama City Beach Luxury Properties founded PCBDaily.com. The purpose was to discuss real estate, economic growth and tourism in Panama City Beach. Today PCBDaily.com is considered the authority on a variety of topics and is spoon-fed over half of it’s 125,000 monthly page views by search engines. When searching a variety of keywords related to Panama City Beach, PCBDaily is returned on the first page bringing visitors right to our front door.
The topic of owning PCBDaily.com is at the bottom of this list because we built Panama City Beach Luxury Properties without it. From 2010 to February of 2012, PCBDaily was in the hands of another company, and was only recently acquired. We’re planning a variety of promotions and ideas to leverage this asset for the 2012 tourism season, including it as leverage to get free stuff for our guests!Go Back To The Top

Mark and Rick
“My brother and I own a unit together and were one of Panama City Beach Luxury Properties first clients. I honestly can say that Jason and his team handled everything about the rental experience with our unit professionally. In addition, the marketing of the unit seems to work out well. Problems will always arise. It is how they are handled that makes or breaks the service provider. Jason and his team at Panama City Beach Luxury Properties have done a great job.”
“I have to say you guys were really great in taking care of things. I am really impressed at your dedication and availability. I know you always are trying to be the best but I really was shocked having someone to talk to at 2am in the morning.”
“With our previous management company, our property was neglected and rented as a discount property. When we went with you we renovated everything (it was in bad shape) and started with a clean slate. The guys at Panama City Beach Luxury Properties now charge (and get) 30% more per week for our property during the season than we ever got before. We are looking forward to years of success with Panama City Beach Luxury Properties.”
“We've been extremely happy with our service with you. We use our property a lot and you take very good care of it. We are always happy with how neat, tidy and in good working order our condo is when we arrive. Thanks.”
