    No barrier to entry, Zillow just needs to add calendar

    What's to prevent Zillow or Trulia, both of whom allow home owners to post long-term rentals, from adding a calendar widget to their long term rental platform to allow home owners to do short-term rentals? As a software developer myself, I can tell you that it would not require very much effort to do so. IMO, this company doesn't have a moat around it.

    • This is my 4th yr using vrbo. the last 12 months i've got a little nervous how home away has started changing things to hog more revenue with there monopolistic postion. i've been very happy with vrbo as its keepme booked yr after yr..I added flip key by trip advisor this yr. so far this yr ive got 12 bookings from vrbo and 1 booking from flipekey.it just seems flip key has a lower clientele. i really want flip key to do well so homeaway has competition but right now vrbo is the only game
