- So You Wanna Be an Airbnb Host? Part 1: Finding the Right Place
The Airbnb service is intended to rent space in your primary residence. I’d never done that because I didn’t want strangers in my actual home. But last month, I took a weekend and converted my spare bedroom and bathroom into a private guest room and listed it on Airbnb.
And so far… wow! The response is incredible. Guests are loving it. And something that surprised me… so am I!
A nice benefit is I’m earning more than if I had a roommate. And I’m even thinking it could get to the point where it could cover my entire mortgage payment – I could live in my own place for basically nothing!
