Wholesale Vacation Club Program

"Significantly Increase cash flow, bottom line and financial leverage"​

Hospitality representation LLC aids developers with monthly cash flow, increased profits, increased sales, as well as providing our lenders peace of mind.

Although Hospitality Representation LLC specializes in hospitality-oriented properties, we have found that many property developers receive benefits to working together to meet mutual goals. 


New developers that start to work with us have had an inventory of unsold completed units whereby their new sales were equal to or less than the number of units that they complete in the same time frame. This meant that they had a block of inventory that could in fact be used in the program to add cash flow as well as to increase their bottom line.  They also found that having more people in the community, gave prospective buyers a more positive feeling about the community as well as the possibility of a ‘rental program’ for those potential buyers.


Although completed units tend to be unfurnished, our developer clients found that their cost to furnish and set up a block of units is offset fairly quickly by the added revenue of the rentals. 


Since most developers already have an on premises sales office, they can easily utilize a staff member once or twice a week to handle check ins, check outs, and to arrange housekeeping. One developer offers concierge services to guests twice weekly and earns significant commission income which they share with their staff member who handles this. In another case, the developer does not have an onsite sales office but arranges for a staff member to attend each check in and such, as above.

Currently Hospitality Representation only has 2 programs that may assist developers. The first is a program allowing developers to be represented at hospitality trade shows and consumer shows that HR attends to enable exposure to our client properties. This program is part of a package of services that are offered to our hotel, time share, vacation home, and vacation rental clients. 

The program that seems to fill the needs of developers of condos, homes, timeshares, apartments and other properties that are located in areas that folks would like to spend time in, would be our Wholesale Vacation Club program. 

This program can benefit developers in the following ways:

Requirements for Acquiring New Properties
