    Unless I'm misunderstanding your question....

     

    The website HomeAway.com is not selling ad space for real estate sales. The website sells advertising space for property owners to promote their vacation rentals.

     

    Are you putting your property on the market for sale while you continue to advertise it for vacation rental....thus asking how you would disclose in the ad that the property is for sale, too?

    Homeaway used to have a Vacation Home Sales site, so you are not totaly off base if you remember the days. 

     

    I really liked it, but they shut it down and I wish that they would bring it back. 

     

    I have found that it's difficult to sell a VR rental as a business.  Folks do not want to pay for the business part of it.  At least not around here.  They simply want something totally undervalued.

     

    So, market wisely.  Make sure you find a Realtor that has experience marketing as a business as well or you will probably get short changed.  That is, if you are selling it as a running VR.

     

    I have seen folks blatantly post on their web-site that their property is for sale.

     

    I hope this helps!
