If you are considering getting into the highly competitive market of Airbnb, you are probably aware of the fact that this venture will require a great deal of your time and effort. However, to get the most of your property and set it up for the success from the start, here are five tips for making your listing stand out in the crowd.
Just one bold feature in the room like a mural or a unique chandelier adds visual interest and attracts views to your listing. If you have a blank wall that craves attention or existing architectural features that need to be highlighted, consider wallpaper. Wallpaper gives your space a visual depth and is the perfect decorative tool for an instant makeover. When used as a focal point, wallpapers or murals will steer the attention from other, fewer attractive details. In the sea of wallpaper types, the vinyl wallpaper is an excellent choice for short-term rentals as it is durable, allows for easy maintenance (wet wiping), and can be used in bathroom and kitchen areas.
Good design is not only how things look, but also how they work. From the moment your guests enter the apartment to the moment they leave, make sure everything in the apartment is working and allows for a pleasant and relaxed stay. Beautiful art and top of the range kitchen equipment will not make such an impression if your Wi-Fi is weak, there’s no place to hang wet towels, or the power outlets are not easily accessible.In small apartments, use multi-functional furniture like a coffee table with a storage unit for magazines and brochures, a storage ottoman to store extra blankets and, of course, a sofa bed.
A great Airbnb experience is a result of many factors; however, good lighting makes all the difference. Proper lighting sets the right mood and creates a comfortable ambience, while bad lighting can diminish the feeling of comfort. Invest in proper up-to-date lighting and change the old fixtures. Replace all bulbs with LED bulbs; they are economical, energy saving and provide excellent illumination. Attach some LED ribbons under the upper cabinets in the kitchen, for example, or in the hallway to illuminate the night path. Your guests cannot easily navigate your place in the dark, so night lights provide an extra safety feature and make beautiful atmospheric light. In the sleeping area, simple indirect lighting or dimmers will help in setting a soft, relaxing atmosphere.
Make it Sparkling Clean
Presenting a neat, uncluttered and meticulously clean apartment, especially bathrooms, in your photo gallery and providing the same experience when the guests arrive is a sign of a professional approach and a dedicated host. While you can occasionally get away with some things, uncleanliness will leave a bad mark on your performance.
Once you get the guest’s attention with attractive photos, your performance as a host will be the next deciding factor to book your listing among others. A great way to always be on top is to work your way into becoming a Super Host. Super Hosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests. Becoming a Super Host will filter you in the sea of listings and increase your turnover. To become a Super Host you are required to respond promptly to guests, keep your place neat, clean, and welcoming, and be a great host during their stay- every single time.
