Real Estate: Managing short term rental properties ”Airbnbs”
It’s important to catch small issues early on to avoid costly repairs in the future. With short term rentals, hosts have the opportunity to inspect the property after each guest leaves and address any issues before the next guest arrives. This is unlike traditional rentals where tenants may be less inclined to report minor issues, leading to bigger problems down the line. Hosts often charge a cleaning fee to guests, with some hosts charging the full fee while others charge a partial fee.
It is important to create a unique experience for guests. Finding a property with unique details that can be highlighted helps enhance that experience as well. There is no potential limit to what hosts can charge for their short term rentals as long as the experience matches the expense. Additionally, hosts can rent out rooms in their homes or designate a section of their homes for short term rentals, providing even more opportunities to earn extra income.
