The single hottest way clients have been stepping onto the investor stage has been through AirBnB's.

Now, if you're just seeing dollar signs, do know that there are all kinds of rules, regulations and local laws pertaining to short term rentals like AirBnB's so don't go and a purchase a property with this intent before you vet out these things (we will post a blog about this soon)!

But maybe you already own an AirBnB and are wondering how to maximize your profit during the holiday season?  Here are 4 Tips For Your AirBnB listing over the holidays:

  1. Update your title and add pictures of your listing decorated with festive decor.  For example, "5 bedroom lakehouse" is now "Christmas Haven for 5!"
  2. Prepare for slower traffic (Nov and Dec are the two slowest months):  maybe offer a discount or update your title to "House too snug with all your holiday guests?  Let your guests rest here comfortably!"
  3. Convert it to a holiday party event space (bonus points for suggesting local caterers).
  4. If YOU'RE going to be "home for the holidays," offer to be readily available to your guests:  tours?  pick up dinner?  grocery shop for the guests prior to their arrival?  Offer to make THEIR stay comfortable.

One thing is for certain:  people travel for the holidays; the extra effort will put some extra jingle in your pocket!
