Being an Airbnb host is a wonderful job that can provide you with extra money. However, being an Airbnb host isn’t always easy. It’s a delicate mix of business acumen, customer service, photography, and writing skills that take some time to master. Thankfully, we’ve compiled a thorough list of Airbnb tips for hosts. After you’re done reading this, head over to some other posts for some more Airbnb tips and tricks.

Make sure your descriptions are accurate

One of the most valuable tips for Airbnb hosts is to take your time creating accurate descriptions for your properties. Speak clearly, describe your property accurately and use a thesaurus to keep your language exciting. Having good descriptions will make your listings stand out and potential guests more interested in what you have to offer.

Upload the right pictures

Another great tip for Airbnb hosts is to ensure the photos of your space are second to none. Make sure your photos are bright, clear to make your space look large and open. Clean any clutter from your rooms to make the photos look organized. For more tips about taking the best Airbnb photos read more here.

Great communication

The number one tip for Airbnb hosts? Make sure you’re being a great communicator. Always respond to messages quickly, present clear rental descriptions and be polite and accommodating at all times. After all, this is a customer service job. Communicating well will also keep vacation rental sites like Airbnb happy and they’ll reward you by showing your rental more often.

Complete information

A quick and simple way to be great at hosting on Airbnb is by filling out all of your contact information completely. Take the time to tell potential guests about yourself and take a picture that shows you as warm and welcoming. This will help you build trust and a good rapport with your guests in ways you never thought possible. Doing business on the internet is still new for some people. So, being able to learn more about someone you’re renting a home from is really important.

Take advantage of guest reviews

Getting and maintaining stellar guest reviews are a wonderful way to find more guests. Properties with great reviews are always more attractive to other travelers because they help them know more about the type of experience they’ll have. The best way to get great reviews is to write reviews for your guests first.  This may be a tedious step, but it’s worth it. Luckily, Hosty’s AutoReview feature helps you leave your guests great reviews, increasing the chances that they’ll give you good reviews back.

Use Hosty!

One of the best tips for being a great Airbnb host is to use Hosty to organize your vacation rental property listings. Hosty’s awesome features like listing management and multi-calendar are great ways to organize your listings and set yourself up for long-term success.
