MY SECOND AIRBNB  (THE BEFORE)

After a pretty successful launch of my first Airbnb, I am going to be working on my second one. I purchased this house 13 years ago for $101,000.

As a student rental, this house rented for about $1,600 a month, or $19,200 per year. As an airbnb I am hoping to make $3,500 a month or $42,000 a year. Of course there are more expenses with an airbnb than a long term rental.

There is a decent amount of deferred maintenance on this property. We plan on renovating this house pretty extensively. Pretty similar levels of finishes to a typical flip we might do.

Planned Renovations

Most of the furniture will be purchased on amazon.com. We have had pretty good success with sourcing things from amazon both from a quality perspective and from a simplicity perspective.

Furniture

So far, we have cleaned our airbnb between each guest. This is probably not a scalable solution, and this house is a bit further from our house. For this house, we plan on getting a professional cleaner to clean between each guest.
