It's easy as 1-2-3

One Once you have found the perfect vacation rental home for your customer, you simply click "Get Started" and create an agreement between both parties with details such as: the rental dates, payment terms and cancellation policies. This agreement between the renter and owner entrusts DepositGuard to securely hold payments until the day after the rental starts.
Two The renter submits rental payments and security deposits via credit/debit card or electronic check –just as with any online transaction. You can monitor the account and confirm that the money is there at any time.
Woman with House
Three When a renter arrives and finds everything is OK, we automatically send the rental payment to the owner. Same Day Commissions means you get paid at the same time. When a renter departs, the owner instructs us how to release the security deposit.

Here's what agents are saying:

"The DepositGuard service is easy to use and helps lower my costs. My rental team is able to focus more on developing new business rather than handling payments and other admin tasks. The vacation rental market is an important part of my business and great customer service there helps to create prospective real estate clients. With DepositGuard, I can stay informed about my agent's transactions and stay on top of my business." - Chris Snell of Snell Real Estate and Elite Destinations, Los Cabos

"We started using DepositGuard so our renters feel secure that their rental monies are deposited in a 3rd party account. Now our clients don't have to make a trip to their bank to wire funds for payments; with DepositGuard online rental payment transactions are seamless." - Teresa Gutierrez of Puerto Aventuras Rentals, Riviera Maya
