We're incredibly excited to announce today that we've acquired Smart Host, a TechStars alumnus, which provides vacation rental owners and property managers with insight into what their neighbors are charging.

Smart Host and Beyond Pricing share a common vision of bringing more sophistication to pricing in the vacation rental market. Beyond Pricing has combined Smart Host's technology with our proprietary Health Score listing rating system to power a new Nearby Listings feature, launching today.

The ability to see comps and gauge their performance relative to neighbors is one of the most common features requested by hosts and managers. In the past, we recommended people check out Smart Host. With this acquisition, we're excited to carry the torch forward and offer the features of Smart Host to our userbase of over 120,000 listings in over 1,000 markets around the world.

Our new Nearby Listings feature algorithmically identifies a selection of comparable properties sorted by our proprietary Health Score, a sophisticated measure of how well a property is priced. This acquisition and subsequent new feature bring us one step closer to democratizing the data that was previously only available to large operators.

Existing Beyond Pricing users can find the new Nearby Listings tab available immediately for each of their listings on their dashboard

Users who are new to Beyond Pricing can easily sign-up and link their Airbnb, HomeAway/VRBO, or PMS account to instantly see Nearby Listings data (along with our existing recommended prices and Market Data features):
