    What Airbnb Guests Expect

    What will Airbnb guests expect from renting properties? Great Airbnb hosts who want to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay, should be sure to provide a few key items for them. Although some of the things in this list may appear obvious, it is amazing how easy it is to forget the basics when worrying over the online listing or pricing structure. By including the items below, guests will enjoy a comfortable stay and be likely to recommend and highly rate the Airbnb property.

    A comfortable bed
    The big bed is something that all guests love and a comfortable night’s sleep is number one on the list when guests decide if they will go back or recommend any Airbnb.  Most guests usually are out and about visiting the area and the most time spent at the property is when it's time to sleep.  After a fun filled party at night they are looking for a fabulous night's sleep. Hosts should not scrimp when it comes to the bed, mattress, pillows and linens.  A restful night's sleep is top priority!

    Tea and coffee making facilities
    Although when guests are staying in an Airbnb they do not expect hotel standards, a few amenities will always be well received and help to enhance a stay. Hosts should try to provide a kettle and a small selection of teas, coffees, sugar and sweeteners. If there is a fridge in the property it is nice to leave some milk for the guest’s convenience when they first...

    House Hunting Can Be Fun

    Associating house hunting with fun can be considered to be an oxymoron but by following a few simple tips to stay organized in the process it can turn out to be a lot of fun. Keeping tabs on the properties you’ve viewed can streamline the process and actually give you enjoyment in one of the most important decisions of your life; your first home purchase.

    List your Must Haves

    As you make your list of must-haves for your property, start with the basics: square footage, bedrooms, bathrooms, storage space, etc. Then expand on your list to include the amenities that you want: a garden, a den, a basement, countertop type, etc. Not only can this list help you stay on track during your house hunting, your real estate agent will use this information to find homes that meet your needs. You can use Pinterest to help you organize notes and photos for the must haves that excite you.

    Browse the Neighborhood

    Once you’ve narrowed down the neighborhood, spend some time checking it out. The only way to know if its the right fit for you would be to take a stroll, spend some time in town and possibly a bite to eat. Go for a walk, talk with the locals, and patronize some of the local stores - that will give you a good feel. A good idea would be to grab some lunch nearby after the open house to get a vibe for the area. Truly immersing yourself in the culture and...
