Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of VACATION RENTAL POTENTIAL, designer and real-estate expert Holly Baker shows a different prospective buyer how to profit from vacation real estate using the new sharing economy, while also sharing her secrets of balancing location, renovation design and operating costs to start earning income on day one. Holly is trying to help budding entrepreneurs who watch their favorite real-estate shows and dream about getting into the market, but who can't risk their entire savings on a flip. Sponsored by HomeAway, an online vacation rental marketplace, VACATION RENTAL POTENTIAL premiered on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 11am-Noon ET/PT, as A&E debuted back-to-back new episodes. In the series opener (11am), Terri and George are looking to purchase a vacation house/rental property on the Jersey Shore, where they once lived and dream of living again. A vacation house they can rent out in the summer for big money is the best way they can finance this dream of getting back to the area they love so much, and hopefully also generate enough profit to help them put their four sons through college. This is an expensive proposition so they're counting on rental expert Holly Baker's expertise to guide them as they search for the best home to maximize their vacation rental potential. To make that decision they'll see beautiful homes in three prestigious areas along the Jersey Shore and will choose one to invest their money and future into. Then, in the day's second new episode (11:30am), Jay and Radha live on the outskirts of Myrtle Beach, and would love to someday have a home where they can enjoy the sand and the waves themselves. They've decided to take the plunge and buy a vacation rental property! The rental income will finance that dream, and hopefully also generate enough income to help pay down the mortgage on their primary residence. Jay and Radha are both realtors...they know how to advise people when buying and selling a home, but they have no idea what to look for in a vacation rental property and need Holly Baker's expertise. Along the way to that big decision, they'll see a condo right on the beach, a family friendly home, and a house two blocks from the busy beach.
Season 2 of VACATION RENTAL POTENTIAL premiered on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT on FYI TV. In the season opener, Holly shows local sportscaster Angie and her husband Jarrett, a way to firmly set up roots in the Seattle area by checking out three vacation homes they can enjoy for years with their family and rent it out to guests to help with costs. Angie and Jarrett will see that going away doesn't mean you have to travel far away. Two days later -- on Saturday, February 2 -- at 10am ET/PT, this same episode debuts on A&E.
