Not sure if my reply on phone made it through......but I would get a 10% commission of the weekly rental just like the calendar holder for the villa would receive 10%. I was previously told that as long as I was not the property owner or property manager I shouldn't need to be under a broker but wanted a second opinion.
We would be acting as place for property owners to advertise their own villa. Not sure what you mean about selling the lists of available properties. Our only advertising would be through our website. We would not be giving lists of the villas to anyone else.
Also, you would call us to make a reservation at one of the properties on our website. We would contact the owner and see if the home is available for rental. We then would give a quote to the renter and they would send us the rental money. We keep 10% and forward the rest to the property manager/owner. We would be merely acting as an advertising entity for people who don't want the hassle of advertising their vacation home.
Sorry for the delay. What if I own property in the Virgin Islands and set up my LLC in the Virgin Islands, but still live in PA.
