Real Estate Meets Hospitality

GoNitely started as way to make managing short-term rental properties effortless, to provide better care, and to help people make more income from their investment.

And we still do that. We still provide a vacation rental management service that earns clients more income and gives them better care than the other guys. That will always be in our DNA. Lately, however, we’ve seen an unmet need in the industry: The need for a better way to buy a short-term rental property. The process for finding and buying an investment rental property is confusing and full of obstacles. It needed to be easier. So, we wondered: How could we make it as easy to acquire and manage property as it is to rent one?

A lot of thought and even more work went into the answer. But we found it. Coming soon is GoNitely’s easy and seamless, full-service solution for buying a home for short-term rentals. We’ll work with you every step of the way, from analyzing homes for ROI potential, to getting through the mortgage process, to providing a dedicated manager who lives nearby. You’ll have a rental-ready property in as little as four weeks - with as little effort on your part as possible.

Who are we? We are Markus Scharnowski (CEO/Co-founder), Judith Scharnowski (COO/Co-founder) and a team of developers, engineers, analysts, managers, and advisors who are the beating heart of GoNitely. It began as a love story. On their honeymoon around the world, Markus and Judith noticed dozens of empty, unused properties in prime locations all over the globe. They found the properties were not for rent for two main reasons: The owners could not be bothered to do any work, not even using modern and very easy-to-use rental platforms, and they were afraid something could happen to their property since they usually did not live nearby.

Markus and Judith came up with a service that could take care of both those issues – and provide a much-needed part-time job for a person living nearby. The best part is that it could be done anywhere. That’s how GoNitely got started.

Soon, GoNitely will be so much more. We’ll make buying a property as easy as ABC by helping people Analyze, Buy, and Care for short-term rental properties in a socially responsible way: For every property managed through GoNitely a community member gets a job.

As you’ve probably already realized, this is BIG and will bring the next wave of innovation to the short-term rental industry. Once you take away the friction from real estate investing and short-term rental management, what do you have left? A property that earns a positive ROI annually with almost no effort on your part.

So, don’t be left out: Be sure to be first to know when GoNitely’s industry-changing service is live. All you need to do is click below to get started.
