Earning money from your property is growing in popularity with sites like Airbnb. This is a great way to earn money from your property and for visitors to experience living in your city like a local. As a traveller it can be an inexpensive way to experience a city and an alternative to staying in a traditional hotel. If you are renting out your home online you should consider taking the following steps to ensure that your rental runs without any headaches.
Renting out your property via airbnb will offer a level of cover (Please see their website for details), but this may not cover everything, so make sure you know exactly what this will and will not cover. You may need to take additional cover with your own insurance company for any loss, theft or damages that occur, so make sure you read the small print and protect yourself and your property.
We all have things in our home that are special to us, and we would not be happy if anthing happened to them. Other people may not respect your property as you do, and not all things have a monetary value that can be replaced by insurance cover, so if you have any things that you treasure, put them somewhere safe. Maybe also move family photos and items that are specific to you and your family to make your home more inviting to guests.
Charge a good price. Other than location and surroundings, one thing that makes a great rental, is a great price. Many people who rent a property online, are not just looking for an experience, they are also looking for something that is affordable and cheaper than a hotel . Make your property more attractive to potential renters by offering good value for money.
