Airbnb is so helpful. If you are thinking about traveling, you should seriously check out this app. No matter where you want to go, you can get exactly the type of experience you are looking for.
This app is AMAZING, but there are still some things you should know before you use it. If you are going on a long or luxurious trip, you are probably going to spend a lot of money – so you want to get the most bang for your buck. Or maybe you are hosting, in which case you want to be the best host possible in order to maximize your income.
No matter what your plans are, you’ll be glad you learned these tricks. Here are 25 super helpful Airbnb hacks for hosts and guests.
1. Know What Kind Of Guest You Want And Appeal To Them
Different types of guests will look for different features in a property. If you are looking for an active adventurer, mention any toys they are welcome to use such as surfboards or skateboards. Be sure to highlight the features that will draw in the type of guest you want.
2. Become A Superhost
Superhosts are more likely to have all their availability filled. Becoming a superhost for Airbnb takes a fair amount of work. You need to host at least 10 trips, keep a 90% response rate, have 80% five-star reviews, and complete every reservation for a year.
3. Know The Local Market
Pay attention to the price similar properties are listed at. I’ve seen hosts suddenly raise their rates because they realized other similar properties were going for way more. You don’t want to confuse potential guests, so learn about the market before you create your listing.
