Hello, The rent from services like AirBnB are far higher than regular rentals. I estimated I’d only need to have my property occupied for around 1/3 of the year to make the same rent that I’d get for longer term rents.
But, the costs are higher – regular cleaning, provision of towels/sheets etc, providing and maintaining furniture, ‘white goods’, TV, internet, gas/electricity etc and a higher risk of damage and more regular re-decorating. The property would need to be occupied for far longer than just matching the rent would suggest.
And, of course, I can’t guarantee sufficient occupancy – maybe no-one wants to stay there (a 2 bed bungalow in Kenilworth).
Does anyone have experience of this type of rental and would like to share some advice/experiences?
