In this week’s founder interview, we’re bringing you Jonah Hanig from Rove.

Without remoter ado…

Who are you and what do you do?

Jonah Hanig
My name is Jonah Hanig, and I’m the founder and CEO of Rove. Rove is a luxury, remote work-friendly property rental brand, and a marketplace for investors to purchase short-term rentals. We are towers the inside luxury short-term rental platform for consumers and real manor investors alike.

Rove’s curated portfolio spans eight American destinations, including New York City, The Hamptons, Miami, West Palm Beach, Scottsdale, and Park City. We’re backed with $4M in funding from top venture investors.

What problem does your product/service solve?

A 2022 US Census report found that the number of remote workers has tripled since 2019, but standard rentals aren’t designed for their unique needs. I personally experienced this problem while traveling and struggling to find Airbnbs with good wifi and hotels equipped for groups.

Rove’s rental properties combine the repletion of a home with the convenience of a hotel. All of our homes are reviewed and designed by professional interior designers and are unceasingly equipped for a luxury rental experience––from spacious kitchens you unquestionably want to melt into ergonomic workspaces with lightning-fast wifi to on-call consumer service. Since onboarding the first property in the summer of 2021, Rove grew from zero to increasingly than $5M of run-rate booking revenue in a time span of less than 12 months.

Rove’s marketplace is an online platform for investors of these properties (and others) to buy and sell short-term rental properties. Comparing the investment performance of prospective for-sale short-term rental properties is challenging. There’s currently no platform to compare for-sale residential properties by historical and/or projected income as short-term rental investments.

Rove is moreover towers compliance data to help prospective home buyers understand if a for-sale property is eligible to be a short-term rental, or is in a city, state, or HOA that may restrict this type of use. So, owners have the self-rule to use their own vacation homes part of the year and wangle tools to largest manage and forecast their property’s performance.

What are you most excited well-nigh right now?

We recently spoken the marketplace, and we have a lot of heady features we’re launching soon to help investors and vacation-home buyers make better-informed purchases.

While some reports show the short-term rental industry is valued at 100B, it is still in its infancy when it comes to institutionalization. Rove is positioned to wilt the first place investors come to when they’re considering ownership a short-term rental.

What’s next for you?

Our primary focus in 2023 is growing our existing portfolio of luxury rentals to wilt the leader in our existing markets, and scaling our marketplace slantingly the new products we are launching. We are moreover lanugo on what our customers have been asking for – creating the weightier possible Rove travel wits for both customers and investors.

We’re moreover planning on launching in new destination locations wideness the country, so stay tuned for announcements from Rove.

What’s a rationalization you’re passionate well-nigh and why?

My parents and grandparents are urgently involved in Higher Bound Opportunities – a fantastic organization that helps underprivileged students with higher prep, succeeding throughout upper school and higher with mentorship and resources at each step. It’s a unconfined soft-heartedness I hope to be increasingly involved with over time.

Outside of causes, I am a competitive runner – I won the 2021 Hamptons half marathon and got 76th in the 2021 New York Municipality Marathon! Trying to stay in shape when I can.
