The birth of the home-sharing industry has brought business-minded people in unison to earn a handsome amount of profit monthly. For this example, Airbnb has allowed property and homeowners to get on their feet and start a short-term renting investment. It may have its pros and cons, but one thing’s for sure it still thrives for both travelers and hosts.
Airbnb in Canada is used mostly in highly crowded cities such as Vancouver, Toronto, and Ontario. There are restrictions imposed on short-term renting, especially in apartment buildings and condominiums, but condo boards and property owners let their tenants use it for Airbnb. But if you’re an aspiring property manager who wants to Airbnb someone else’s property, here are some tips and tricks to consider before anything else.
How do you do that?
If you plan to manage someone else’s property, you have to build a reputation first. You can’t just waltz into the picture without having good credibility and authority and expect them to let you manage their property. Fraud and scam are pervasive, and trust should transpire between you and the homeowner. The rest will follow in the course of time.
So, how do you build trust? Gain experience. Everyone in the industry started learning the best practices and applying them to the properties of each handle. Potential clients need a company that can cater to their needs and be displayed while interacting with them. Your capacity and experience are one factor that they’ll consider before anything else – so you have to work on it.
Investing valuable time
Realize the legalities
Furnished homes or spaces are a must!
You can’t run an Airbnb business if the properties you handle are hollow and flat – without amenities inside. Once you enlist a property, you have to make sure at least the basic ones are there:
- Bath towels
- Clean bedsheets and pillowcases
There should be ample space where your guest can cook food and cleaning apparatuses to maintain the place.
The property should be flexible enough to entertain different types of guests. Business travellers prefer those with conducive working spaces, while families prefer a homey vibe with kid-friendly and safety features. You can also showcase how accessible the property is, like a 3-minute walk to grocery stores or a 5-minute drive to the airport. This way, you can attract more guests who will likely book a night or two.
Guests appreciate thoughtful gestures. You can include personal touches such as stocking up coffee or tea, extra towels and linens, and a fast internet connection. Almost all guests bring their cell phones and laptops with them, so take it into consideration to leave a positive experience after their stay.
