Airbnb has challenged the hospitality industry in many ways. Due to the increasing popularity, getting your Airbnb listing consistently booked is perceived to be a hard task. But fear not! As an Airbnb consulting shop, Hello, Suburbia has helped many Airbnb hosts with setting up and managing their Airbnb rental properties.
Here are 5 Airbnb tips to make your listing stand out from your competitors:
1. Make your Home Photogenic
Guests rely on photos when choosing their stay. Make your property look aesthetically pleasing!
2. Maximize Occupancy and Space
The more people your property can accommodate, the higher your return in rent. While your space is limited, maximize the functions and utility in your furniture.
3. Keep the Property Spotless at all Times!
Cleanliness is the key attribute for a 5-star review. Sending a cleaning team between guest stays will not cost you more as the host since the cleaning fees are paid by guests in addition to the accommodation fees.
4. Provide Friendly and Personal Notes
Guests and renters want a nice memory from staying at your property. Add a few personal notes with WiFi passwords or restaurant and recreational recommendations around your area to make your guests feel more welcomed. You may also provide a welcome basket of assorted gifts or treats.
5. Use Keywords in your Listing
With a nice home set up, you want to make sure your guests can find your listing. SEO (search engine optimization) is applied everywhere within every page of your Airbnb listing. Use keywords that are found in Airbnb’s instructions for guests--since new guests rely on those instructions to learn about the booking process. Highlight the convenience and landmarks in your area – such as transportation options and how to get to the tourist landmarks in your city.
Overall, there are many things to consider when renting your home to the public, but we can take care of it all here at Hello, Suburbia.
