1) Ensure Activity and Response


As an Airbnb host, you want to ensure that your property is always active and that you're responding to any inquiries in a timely manner. The more activity and the faster the response a listing has, the more likely it is that someone will book your property.


Consider setting up a system where you're automatically notified any time there's activity on your listing. This way, you can quickly respond to any messages and ensure that your listing is always up-to-date.


2) Have an Available Schedule for Guests


Another way to ensure that your listing gets bookings is to make sure that you have an available schedule for guests. This means that your listing should be available for rent during the majority of the year, especially during peak travel seasons.


If you only plan on renting your property for a few months out of the year, it's important to update your listing accordingly. Freeing up your schedule to tend to your guests or making things as flexible as possible is recommended as well.


3) Set Your Property Apart from the Others


There are a lot of vacation rentals out there, and if you want yours to stand out to stay booked, put in the extra effort. Adding personal touches to your rental or providing amenities that others don't is a great way to make your listing more attractive to potential guests.


If you're not sure what makes your rental unique, consider asking friends or family for their input. Once you have a better idea of what sets your rental apart, be sure to highlight those features in your listing.


4) Advertise the Area Your Airbnb Is In


If you want your rental to be a success, you need to make sure that it's in a desirable area. If your rental isn't near any attractions or activities, it's likely that potential guests will pass it by and go with a different property on Airbnb.


To make sure that your rental garners plenty of bookings, do some research on the area your rental is in. Make a list of all the attractions and activities nearby, and be sure to include that information in your listing.


5) Provide and Highlight Extra Services


If you want to attract guests to your Airbnb rental, consider offering extra services. For example, you could offer a laundry service or include a continental breakfast. A tour around the area and other similar offers can also be attractive. Be sure to highlight these services in your listing description so that potential guests are aware of them.


Conclusion


By following these tips, you can curate a guest-centered experience during your Airbnb stay. Focusing on that can help maximize your chances of keeping your Airbnb property booked solid all year round.
