To be a successful vacation rental host, you need the one thing we know you don’t have… a lot of time.
Time to learn the ropes, time to understand the industry’s ins and outs, and time to compare notes with others doing the same thing.
But if you’re like many hosts, you probably run your rental on the side, combining it with the pressures of everyday life and a hectic job, so any learning has to happen in the early hours of the morning, in your car, on the subway and during stolen moments here and there.
So, how can you grow your business and build your reputation as a fantabulous host, while keeping all these balls in the air?
Or maybe you are a full-time, experienced host with more than one rental and want to become an expert in one specific business area. How do you find up-to-date, succinct info you can trust?
