Airbnb is a platform that will allow you to rent your house (or your apartment) to individuals. It is therefore a website that aims to put individuals in touch with each other.
Renting is a great way to make money, especially if you’re going on vacation and don’t want to leave your home unoccupied. That is why, in this article, I am going to present the advantages of the Airbnb site for the seasonal rental or not of your house.
Airbnb, the leader for seasonal and one-off rentals
First of all, the first thing to do is to create an account on the site. Creating an account is very quick. But before you can put your property up for rent, I recommend that you take photos of your house or apartment and if possible photos where your property will be well showcased. To do this, make sure that your house is tidy and that there is sufficient light to prevent your rooms from appearing too dark. Because if your photos don’t appeal to you, then you won’t risk having a lot of requests.
Once you have taken your photos and your account is created on Airbnb, you will need to create an ad. You will need to enter the location of your property, the price and the rental period. Likewise, you will have a description to enter, so don’t hesitate to take care of the latter if you want to have the best possible results. On this site, the unit of reference is the night. That is, you will have to set a price for one night. Try to be as competitive as possible by offering a price that suits your home and where you are.
Thus, the seasonal rental can be very useful to you, for example, to finance your family vacations (or to earn money from time to time) or quite simply so that your property is occupied and maintained during your absence. Airbnb is clearly to be preferred because it is the vacation rental site with the most visitors and therefore your chances of renting your apartment or house will be the highest.
Rent your house for events
If you own an apartment or a house and you want your property to earn you when you go on vacation, well know that your property can indeed earn you money. In this article, I will explain to you why seasonal or event rentals are a good method of making money.
Seasonal and event rental
Thus, you can take advantage of certain events (sports for example) to rent your house to people who will travel to attend these events and have accommodation on site. And there are ways to rent the week at high rates, depending on the city where you rent your property. This method is used a lot for competitions such as the World Cup and the Euro, especially since Euro 2016 takes place in France which allows you to take full advantage of this method since tourists from all over the world will come to attend the events. soccer matches in different cities.
Likewise, vacation rental is a great idea if you are going on vacation, for example in the summer. You can rent out your house or apartment for several weeks (two weeks being the average for seasonal rentals) and be aware that the rates for seasonal rentals are high.
If you are therefore interested in renting your property, you can go through a real estate agent or directly through the Internet since various websites offer you to place ads that will be seen by thousands of people potentially interested in renting your house. The leaders of this market on the internet are HomeAway and Airbnb which are the sites to use for this type of rental.
In conclusion, this type of rental is suitable if you are going on vacation and you want your house to earn you money or you want to take advantage of major events to rent your property punctually.
