Airbnb hosting is a tempting opportunity for homeowners—make money off the property you own as a vacation rental.
Hosting an Airbnb can be quite a nice chunk of added revenue stream. Currently, close to 3 million people have listed their homes as Airbnbs. Location will depend on the profit homeowners make with their rental. However, the average homeowner brings in close to $20,000 per year in additional income.
Don’t expect to make much profit if you live in a small middle of nowhere town. However, a beach city such as San Diego or a city like Phoenix, who hosts MLB Spring Ball, are the types of cities that can get rental property owners a lot of money.
Time is another factor in the equation of Airbnb. How much time will you have? Will you clean after your guests depart or will you hire a service? What if the dishwasher floods the kitchen—is it you running across town to fix it or do you have a handy man? Each time you hire someone that will affect your profit.
Location and time are important when factoring in the idea of owning an Airbnb. However, the big question is—how will you finance a vacation home that you can legally rent out?
Taking out a hard money loan for your rental property investment can really help you get the ball rolling. Hard money lenders base their loans in equity rather than on your financial history, allowing borrowers with even the worst of credit to get approved.
