“High reputation, beats high similarities..” From Joe Gebbia’s, Airbnb co-founder, TED talk. http://tiny.cc/JoeTedTalk.   What in the world does Joe mean? Basically, reviews are more important than having things in common, i.e., vegan or jogger.

How to get reviews as a new Airbnb host?

  • Lower your prices from your competitions. Yes, snoop the neighbors listings and price a bit lower. Do keep in mind, lower only for the same style of space and listing.

  • Offer 1 night rentals

  • Exceed the guests expectations

  • Be very clear on what you offer! You don’t want your guest to find out they have three flights of stairs when they get to your place with their cane.

  • List 3 things your guests love and 2 they don’t. (Taken from Airbnb’s Head of Hospitality, Chip Conley’s class)
