SMH reports a story about several new business’ opening up that will look after your airbnb property for you, from creating the listing and photos, organizing cleaners and greeting clients to give them a key. Yesterday I was approached by an estate agent to do exactly that for her client. That was the 4th time in less than twelve months i have been approached to do something very similar. At the moment I think it would be cannibalizing my existing two places to take on work like that but maybe a tourist city like Cairns with so many existing investment properties has room for a business like this. Companies like www.shorttermaccommodationcairns.com.au/ have a start on business here but they are comparatively expensive and quite strict with many conditions and not a very friendly face, just check out the house rules. Perhaps there is room for some other way, halfway between the aloofness of the website above and but with better efficiency than someone directly letting out their single investment property.
