BBO (Book By Owner) is The Vacation Home-Owner’s Resource. We are a business-to-business (B2B), lifestyle business where you get to live in the town you wish to live, work and play in, (and maybe retire in). You’ll enjoy long-term relationships with your clients and local partners. You’ll also be surrounded by very nice vacation homes.
Finding a year-round recurring revenue stream in a resort town isn’t easy. This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme – your business will continually build over time and will take some effort. We believe every resort town and each franchise owner is unique; you’ll have the opportunity to add your own personal touch to your business while benefiting from all the processes and tools we have developed. You won’t be alone – you’ll have us and a family of other Franchisees all over the country to support you.
Please, take time for an honest evaluation of our business and our company to see if we’re a good fit for each other.
