Keep reading to learn how to list your property on Airbnb.

Get started

The first step in learning how to list on Airbnb is to sign up, log in and click on ‘list your space’ on the home page. You’ll be sent to a form that asks for general information like home type, room type, number of people that your home accommodates and your city.


Here you can choose how often you want to list your property. Your options range from “All of the time,”  “sometimes” or “just one time.”  You don’t have to add the dates yet, just the frequency that you want to list your property.


Airbnb will recommend a price range for your listing based on location and house/room type. You have the option of choosing your own price, but we encourage you to use Airbnb’s pricing until you get the hang of it.


Add a great title and a summary of your listing. Make sure to be clear, descriptive and always use correct grammar. Check what other hosts in your area are saying in their listings.


Make sure you have some great, clear, professional photos ready to post. Your space should be well lit, tidy,  and well organized. If possible, take pictures high up and from the corners to make rooms look wide and large.


Here you can choose from a list of amenities that your home has to add to your listing. Make sure you’re clear about what amenities you have. A guest may be looking for a particular experience that your home’s amenities can provide, but they won’t know about it unless you list it.

Here you can double check all of your information that you added in the previous sections.


Finally, input your location, save your listing, and you’ll be ready to go!
