Ultimate checklist to start renting your flat on Airbnb

Not a while ago, you’ve decided to list your property on Airbnb. Whether it is to make extra income or because you earn multi-properties, you must be prepared for the process of properly listing your flat on Airbnb. Indeed, creating the dream rental is not something you could do easily and this checklist will be helpful for you. 

Renting a flat on Airbnb is now easy A-B-C but what about listing your own property? Some things are obvious but some can have escape your mind and will be amazing to improve your guest experience. 

The very first piece of advice would be to be careful and aware of the law regenting your country or your town. If it is the responsibility of the guests and the hosts to be aware of these laws, it is better for your guest not to be disturb during their stay by a policeman. For example, home owners renting out their property in London need to be aware of the 90 day rule, and in some areas you may need to be registered or apply for planning permission. Subletting is also risky business – check your rental agreement if you don’t own the property outright.

Think about the guest convenience and welcome them properly

Renting your property on Airbnb could be compared to cooking your family recipe. You need to know and prepare the ingredients before getting your finale dish. In the case of listing your flat, it’s basically the same so you should start to think as a B&B owner.
What would you like to get in a B&B that would rent while away from home? What are the things you like to get in your hotel rooms? What is it you dislike? A little extra can go a long way and are easy to provide so think about welcome snacks, tea and coffee, bathrobes and slippers.

Alongside these attentions, it is much appreciate to get a comfortable mattress, news sheets, modern furnitures, nice plates but also maybe a list of the best restaurants in the neighbour…again, simple things that will attract more guests but also add value to your property hence increase the price per night. 

Now, think back about your last stay away from home.
