HomeAway Expands European Inventory

Austin-based HomeAway, the online vacation rental marketplace headed by Brian Sharples, has boosted the inventory on both HomeAway.com and VRBO.com, adding around 11,000 rural, country-side vacation homes to those two services. HomeAway said the growth came from the migration of inventory on its Toprural.com site to its network. HomeAway acquired Toprural.com in April of 2012. Most of Toprural.com's sites are in Southern Europe.
