The Sydney Airbnb market it getting hit with more and more listings each and every day. So if you want your property to be the one that stands out every time someone does a search in your area you should follow these 5 rules.
- Invest in good photos
And by that we mean to pay a professional to take them. Photos are your number one selling point and investing a couple of hundred dollars at the beginning will literally pay off in no time.
- Choose a catchy title
People will make up their mind about your property in seconds. You only have two ways to make a good first impression; your title photo and your word title. Choose something that entices guests to want to know more and make sure it highlights the best feature of the place in it too.
An example of this would be Ultimate Sydney Harbour View House or Serene Bush Dream.
- Have an honest description of your property
Highlight the pros of your place but never oversell yourself. Also, make future guests aware of anything that could possibly catch them unaware. For most people walking up 3 sets of stairs is not big deal. However, if they were expecting a lift it might leave a bad impression on them. Tell them about those things in the advert so they are prepared.
- Complete your listing profile as much as possible
You might think writing a big blub about your neighborhood or yourself as a host won’t sway people’s mind if they book your place or not but THEY DO. Remember guests are usually from another country or at least another city.
If they do not know much about your area and you are not directly in the centre of town they might be wary and are worried they are too far away from the action. Tell them all the awesome things that make your neighborhood unique and how far it is to the major attractions in your city.
The same goes for your profile. Have a comprehensive profile so people can get a good vibe of you. This translates directly how much they will trust your listing overall.
- Answer all your reviews
We know, you are already leaving your guests a glowing review on their profile but writing a quick individualized thank you below their comments makes them see you go the extra mile. It also makes it look more in line when you have to respond to a negative review, which is something you have to do every time.
