How does Startle help me earn more from my rental property?

The Startle Data Analytics Team has engineered a pricing algorithm that takes into account factors like post code, number of bedrooms, historical pricing data, and current neighborhood prices to adjust your nightly rates and maximize your revenue per booking. In addition, Startle uses a dynamic pricing strategy to fill any open dates or last minute cancellations and ensure your place is always booked.

How much does Startle cost?

Startle offers homeowners two ways to earn income from their homes.

  1. Pay-Per-Booking means homeowners pay a fee of 25% of their rental income for Pillow’s management services, roughly half the price of most competitors which routinely charge anywhere from 25-50% fee. With Pay-Per-Booking, homeowners have calendar and pricing control and flexibility to set available dates (at less than 30 days) and to create a minimum nightly price.
  2. Fixed Income Guarantee gives homeowners a pre-determined monthly income from their short term rentals. Every month, Startle will pay homeowners a set fee for the privilege of managing their rental home. Using 85 criteria including location, number of bedrooms, and amenities, Startle is accurately able to predict both occupancy and daily pricing. This option is only available for homes where Startle can manage rentals for at least an entire month. Inquire with your sales contact to see if your home qualifies for this option. If you qualify for any of our LUX packages longer terms may apply.
