I am Dania Hussain. Turning your property into an Airbnb might be a fantastic way to supplement your income. But make sure you do your homework first to determine whether it's something you'd be interested in pursuing.
Airbnb Host, What Do You Need to Do
Be responsive. All booking questions and reservation requests should be responded to within 24 hours. While there is no hard and fast rule, you should react within a day.
Accept reservation requests. Accept requests from guests whenever possible. If a host consistently refuses requests, he or she may see fewer bookings in the future.
Avoid cancellations. While it may be inevitable to cancel on a guest, Airbnb takes cancellations very seriously. Because their trip plans rely on staying in your Airbnb, guests rely on you not cancelling. Airbnb will penalise you if you have a history of cancellations.
Maintain a high overall rating. The importance of quality is paramount. This entails having a fantastic space that is complemented by outstanding service. Airbnb may prevent you from hosting if your host rating falls below a specific threshold. If you have a good host rating, you might even be promoted to Superhost.
Provide essential amenities. You are not required to provide toilet paper or soap when using Airbnb. However, it is strongly advised that you do so. Would you like to stay in an apartment with no towels or pillows?
