OUTPACE THE COMPETITION

Supercharged performance

Wander performance background mobile

According to AirDNA, the leading data provider for vacation rentals, average daily rates were down by 1.3% across the country in 2023 relative to 2022, while average occupancy decreased by 5.4% relative to 2022, illustrating how increased supply of vacation rentals post-pandemic has created a strain on performance across the industry.

Wander’s portfolio, on the other hand, posted strong results throughout 2023, with same-store ADR growth of 15% across the portfolio and overall market outperformance of 181%.

On average, Wander homes outperform their competitive set on total revenue by 20 – 30%.

Looking ahead to 2024, Wander’s portfolio is strongly positioned to outperform 2023, with occupancy already pacing 4% ahead.

Case Study: Surfside Beach

Wander Surfside Beach is an 8-bedroom, 9-bath oceanfront home in historical Myrtle Beach, which Wander acquired in August 2022. At acquisition, the property was owned by a prominent local vacation rental manager who had booked out the 2022 peak season.

After acquisition, Wander fully outfitted the property with smart home technology, workstations, and an upgraded FF&E package, then began a marketing campaign to drive bookings for 2023.

Wander was able to grow ADR by 61% during the 2023 peak season. So far, for the 2024 peak season, Wander has been able to grow ADR by 10%.

Wander Bandon Beach is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath home located along Oregon’s scenic coastline in Bandon. Built in 2020, the property has a modern coastal aesthetic rendered with glass and wood, and offers stunning, uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean.

The property was not an existing short-term rental at acquisition. Wander converted the home into a cash flowing asset upon acquisition and was able to grow ADR by 52% during the 2023 peak season. So far, for the 2024 peak season, Wander has been able to grow ADR by 24%.
