Listing Site Independence, A Cheat Sheet
See your options & expand your business to other short term rental sites!
Whether you are just starting out or have been hosting for years, the only way to protect, grow, and sustain your rental business is to post on multiple listing sites. In addition to generating more bookings, you will no longer be at the mercy of any single listing site, giving you peace of mind that your rental income will keep flowing.
We have seen rockstar hosts in the home sharing ecosystem be unexpectedly shunned by their listing site. Not only is this emotionally devastating, but financially as well. Hosts who only list their property on one listing site risk losing all of their rental income if unexpectedly given the boot.
Changes to Terms and Fees
Far more common is changes to hosting fees and unexpected charges. Hosts who list on multiple listing sites are less vulnerable to sudden changes to policies on any one listing site.
Besides being a smart defensibility move, posting on multiple listing sites gets you more exposure, increasing the chance that you will book your property and make more money. It’s an all- around good business decision.
