Tips on setting up an Airbnb business
Don’t forget about your neighbors, your landlord, and your city: The first step to setting up an Airbnb business is to make sure that you can do so legally. If you rent your home, check with the landlord to make certain that they’re comfortable with you putting your space on Airbnb. Second, you need to check that your city, state, or municipality allows short-term home rentals. In some larger cities, the rules relating to how people can rent out their homes are changing so it’s important that you know what those rules are before you begin. Finally, it’s not totally necessary, but it’s a good practice to alert your neighbors before you start renting your property. They’ll appreciate the fact that they know who’s coming and going in their community. They can also keep an eye on your home to make sure it’s always safe.
Think through the whole rental process:
Before you start renting, think through the entire rental process and especially how time-consuming it can be. Will you be the one listing your property, will you be the one cleaning it? Do you have enough space to host more than one person? Do you have the extra money available to buy extra towels, new sheets or other things that guests expect for their stay? Setting up an Airbnb business is simple enough, but before you do, you want to make sure that you’ve thought through each part of the process.
