Sell your business in 3 easy steps
We review your business and confirm interest
Within 48 hours of submitting all required information, we will give you an answer as to whether we'd like to acquire your business and how much you could make. We move to the next step with a signed Letter of Intent.
We lead the due diligence and legal prep
Emerald Stay will lead the process of understanding how you've run your business, and of confirming financial outcomes. In parallel, we'll prepare the legal documents for your review. This can take as few as 30 days and once the docs are signed it's official!
Migrate accounts and get paid!
The last step is migrating your OTA accounts to Emerald Stay. We'll guide you through our playbook and once your accounts are transferred you get paid! This whole process can take about 30-45 days.

Benefit from our playbook
We know this process very well and can help guide you through the most efficient account transition possible. Whether this is your first time selling your business, or you're a serial entrepreneur, we'll partner with you and help guide you through each step.
Leave your legacy in good hands
We'll care as deeply about your business as you do. Our founders Laurent and Maxime are passionate entrepreneurs with extensive experience in hospitality, real estate finance, and technology. They are also family guys with young kids and healthy ethics and integrity.
Share in the upside potential
We invest behind the growth of all of our umbrella businesses and we are happy to have Sellers benefit from that growth. Our investments in technology, distribution and operations materialise in significant synergies once your business is integrated to ours.
We are always willing to structure a deal to enable the Seller to benefit from that continued growth.

Is your business a fit for Emerald Stay? Here's what we look for.
Relationships with homeowners
We are interested in businesses that have established solid relationships with homeowners. Ideally, this materialises through exclusive management contracts, or at the very least an agreement that gives a fair degree of control over the calendar.
We are not interested in mere "listings" websites that show lots of inventory but do not actually control the assets.
A premium inventory
Our focus is on what we call premium properties. The ideal range for us is a portfolio of properties with daily prices of 700 to 3'000 Euros in high season.
We will certainly not dismiss higher priced inventory, but lower-tier inventory will seldom make the cut.
The right scale and footprint
We can be flexible for the right opportunities, but generally we're seeking managers that generate at least €1 million in gross booking value per year.
Right now we are particularly interested in the following regions:
Costa Brava, Ibiza, Mallorca, Tuscany, Provence / Côte d'Azur, French Alps, Swiss Alps
"I passionately operated my small business during 15 years. Then I felt like moving on, but the prospect of selling was daunting. The team gave me an opportunity to cash in and smoothly transition out. They have been very professional and fair throughout the process."
