Active Dates

Vacation rental metrics or key performance indicators are critical measurable aspects of your business that you can lean on to understand and manage your business better. From occupancy rates to referrals your vacation rental is getting, it can be helpful to track these metrics. “You can’t improve what you don’t measure!”

If you understand the business metrics, you and/or the vacation rentals’ manager will be able to analyze the return on your investment and return on revenue more accurately to improve your operations.

Active dates indicate how many days the listing was open to reservations. For example, some host might block off their winter calendar for 3 months and not take bookings during that time. Or it could be a new listing that only started 9 months back. In such cases, we’d report 270 days as active days in the last year.
