    John and Tim reflect on learnings. They discuss how to think about linens.Bed bug coversWhat type of quality you will need to satisfy your airbnb guests and still run a practical operationToo inexpensive leads to wear, too premium offers no return because most guests will not notice the differenceMid-grade linen is best (fitted bottom, top sheet, pillow cases)John and Tim discuss what covers are best (Hint: coverlets are faster to dry) Heavy comforters are expensive to wash and frequent washing is cost prohibitive (think $20-25 per comforter each turn!)

Super Helpful podcast

Stumbled upon this podcast on faucet yesterday and I must say I am amazed by this educational podcast. As someone who owns a rental property, I really love this podcast. I gained a lot of practical tips to think about as I go forward with my own portfolio. Looking forward to new episodes.
