I was recently looking at rentals on the Outer Banks though VRBO I noticed that it was being managed by a local rental company. So I thought I would compare prices .
I found that it was 500 Dollars lower on the rental company site
. I also was looking for a VRBO on a lake not far from us I found the rental price reasonable but the owners fees were Outrageous. almost equal to the rental price.
It pays to do some comparing as many places are listed with multiple rental sites and fees can be different.
