Want to earn a little extra income by inviting travelers into your home? Airbnb is a wonderful site that allows you to rent your home to travelers. You can select who comes in and you can decide everything your guest can or cannot do. It’s your home! If you’re thinking about renting your home on Airbnb, here are three quick tips to get you started.

 

Tips for Renting Your Home on Airbnb

TIP # 1: COMMUNICATE CLEARLY WITH YOUR GUESTS

Airbnb allows you to invite strangers into your home to stay while you’re there or maybe even away. Before you accept an invitation request, get to know your guest first. How a person writes and reacts to your “inquisition” will allow you to judge whether a person is being honest or one of the crazies.

At the same time, you should be upfront about what you offer and what you expect from your guests. Clearly state that you don’t allow smoking or any additional guests in your home. Or, invite them to enjoy the snacks in your fridge and the shampoo in the shower. It’s up to you.

 

TIP # 2: DECIDE YOUR STYLE

Using Airbnb can be either a side income or the way you pay your bills. Once you have decided which route you plan to take, you should act and treat your guests accordingly.

If you’re going to be living in the home with your guests coming over, then you’re likely not going to be rigid with rules and Airbnb can be a great place to meet some new traveling friends.

However, if you plan on making Airbnb your business, you must treat it as one. Consider your home as a hotel. Provide your guests with an exceptional experience and aim to please. Once you start receiving great reviews, you’ll likely start to see more and more people contacting you over others in your area.

 

TIP # 3: USE A WIFI GARAGE OPENER

Keys can be copied, so if you want to keep your home secure when inviting people to your home from Airbnb, consider using a wifi garage opener.

There are a lot of different garage openers available. However, if yours uses WiFi, you’ll see that it provides all the security features you need to keep your home safe.

With a WiFi garage opener, you can allow your guests to enter and exit your home only through the garage. These garage openers come with an app you can download onto any smartphone. All you have to do is ask your Airbnb guest to download the app then you can grant access to your garage with a simple code.

The greatest part about a WiFi garage opener, is that you can monitor your home even while you’re away. Whenever your garage is opened, you can receive updates as to what time it was open and track it in your log.

Isn’t this a great alternative to use a WiFi garage opener instead of handing out your keys to random people?
