Have you ever wondered what it takes to run a short-term rental on Airbnb or Vrbo? Today we’re breaking down the cost, time, and skills you need to have in order to become a 5-star rated host. To help shed light on all the nitty gritty details of short-term rental ownership is Annie Sloan, the Co-Founder, and CEO of The Host Co.
As an experienced host and real estate investor herself, Annie got her start working in film and TV as a producer and director for some of your favourite HTGV shows. Since then, she has also taken on Creative Director roles at both Facebook and Twitter before co-founding her company The Host Co.
In this episode, Annie shares her passion for hospitality and how her early experiences (pre-Airbnb even) as a short-term rental host led her to create a one-stop shop for hosts to help monetize their AirBnBs while creating a better experience for their guests. Annie also shares her thoughts on it being a form of passive income and if this could be a way for the younger generation to enter the real estate market.
