Airbnb has helped so many people all over the world make some nice extra money with very little work involved.
If you’re reading this then you are also considering getting into it as well. There is a lot of competition out there. Is it too late to get started and make money with Airbnb?
There has never been a better time to join, in fact. With some tips and tricks, you can beat out the competition and become a sought after lodging for travelers from all over the world.
Let’s take a look at some ways to set up your home for Airbnb.
Do an Evaluation
The very first thing to do is figure out where the guests are going to stay when they come into your home.
You may already have a spare room that is unused. This is the most logical room to host people.
What to do if there is no extra room? Look towards your attic. It may only be used for storing your Christmas tree and other odds and ends right now. But you can transform it into a luxurious living space with the help of a specialized company like the Attic Conversion Centre.
All you have to do is have an idea of what kind of style you think best suits your property and have them do a professional job.
Set It Up For Comfort
Since many people are only going to be sleeping in your house, you need to make sure that they remember how comfortable and luxurious their room was. There are many ways to make a room as cozy as possible.
A quality mattress and linens are an obvious start. You should also consider little details like a nightstand and the other furnishings should all add to the ambiance and comfort.
Add some extra touches
You may not be providing breakfast like a traditional BnB, but you can splurge on some items that will make the guests feel welcome. A bottle of wine, especially if it is local, will show you appreciate their custom.
You should also make sure that they have practical things like a coffee maker, an iron for their clothes and a hairdryer. Make sure they know where these things are and how to operate them to make their stay as seamless as possible.
Ask for Advice
Use the guests that stay with you for advice on what you could be doing better. Some of the suggestions may not be feasible. And some will be downright frivolous. Yet, you can get some great ideas on how to better serve your future guests based on the suggestions that you get simply by asking.
Be honest about your accommodations. Ask for a fair price based on the reality of what you are offering. Check out the competition and see what their rooms are like and what they charge per night to get an idea of where your prices should be.
