2.Provide Airbnb with payment details
You’ll need to provide Airbnb with payment details when you create your account so that guests can transfer money to you. When you’re up and running and you’ve got guests ready to stay with you, they’ll transfer the money to Airbnb who will hold it for 24 hours after check-in, at which point you’ll receive it. A three percent cut will be taken by Airbnb and rest goes straight into your own back pocket!
3.Upload some stellar photos of your home
This bit’s crucial, as the main selling point for your home will be the way it comes across in the images you upload. While location, guest reviews and price will go some way toward helping people make up their mind to stay with you, they’re very unlikely to book if they can’t get a good, visual idea of the place. Invest some time in whipping your house into a ‘show home’ state and take clear shots of each room – preferably from a few different angles. It can also help to take some pictures of the surrounding street/area to give potential guests a feel for its location too.
