No replay e-mail from vacant houses


We normaly travel two times a year to Florida, we are from Europe.

Everytime we travel we send appr. 75 e-mails to inquire for a house.

This time we did the same thing last week ago, we send the same

amount of e-mails to houses that are free for september and we

did not received one answer, can somebody tell me how this is possible.

    Wow - that is a lot of inquiries. Have you checked your spam filter on your email? I have also heard from someone else on another forum, that she was blocked by VRBO/Homeaway as she had sent out too many inquiries. VRBO/Homeaway is trying to cut back on spam emails that we owners receive - maybe you were flagged because of the number of inquiries.


    Check your spam filter first, then give Homeaway or VRBO (whoever you had inquired through) a call. Or you could try sending out a few inquiries from another email address (don't send 75 again, maybe just 10 to see if it works).


    As an owner, I certainly hope the inquiry feature is working correctly.

    Actually, I am starting to wonder if I am having the same problem as you.  Last Friday I sent out maybe a dozen or so inquiries, also regarding homes in Florida, and received only 3 responses over the Memorial Day weekend.  Maybe owners weren't checking their e-mail regularly last week because of the holiday?  I don't know but it is very frustrating.
