We live in an era of unprecedented connectedness. Email, telephone, social media, the internet…there are so many ways to stay in touch with people.
We are also living in a time when services like Airbnb are exploding in popularity.
People who wouldn’t have even dreamed of considering hosting on Airbnb 5 years ago are now eagerly signing up, or are at least interested in the idea and asking lots of questions!
These two things combined means that there is absolutely no scarcity of resources out there to help you navigate your short-term rental questions. If anything, the problem is that there might be too much information, not too little!
There is no need or reason for you to try to navigate these unknown waters alone.
Plug into some of the online groups and get your questions answered quickly, without having to reinvent the wheel! I’ve had so many complicated questions answered within minutes by simply posting to these groups – questions that would have taken hours or even days of research, or weeks of trial and error to answer.
It’s the best resource I could ever have hoped for, and best of all, it’s free!
I would recommend Facebook, as it is still the most robust social media site by far. Search for groups in your area – terms like “airbnb,” “short-term rental,” “host,” and “your city” are good places to start. If you’re still having trouble finding good suggestions, send me a message and I’ll give you some more ideas.
