Home Away Property Managers; are the Vetted like Airbnb property owners

Jump to last reply

I've put down a deposit on a Hawaii condo and now proceeding to pay the balance, as my travel is just over a month away. The property was listed on HomeAway, and I've contacted the owner (also designated as property manager by HomeAway) by email and possibly by phone (not totally sure whether I just emailed or both discussed by phone with manager as well, as this was some time back) about deposit and payment arrangements, and was told to make initial deposit of $300 directly to B of America account which I did. The manager/owner confirmed receipt of deposit by email.

As I go to pay my balance, I got to thinking about how Airbnb does at least a cursory vetting of people listing property by actually calling the phone number they list and confirming email address. HomeAway does state that the person I'm dealing with has been a manager with HomeAway since 2006, which is of some value, but I was wondering if property managers go through any vetting similar to Airbnb.
