    3 Ways You’re Leaving Money on the Table in Your STR

    3 Ways You’re Leaving Money on the Table in Your STR

    This episode may be a bit controversial, but we’re here for it. There is extra work and extra costs associated with any short-term rental, and we believe this is work you should be charging for. After all, you’re not a hotel; if you’re running an STR, you don’t have the same flexibility as hotels do, and when extra requests lead to more work or put a strain on your team (or yourself), you should include fees to compensate for this.

    Tips for Managing Expected (and Unexpected) Maintenance

    Let’s face it, properties are living, breathing organisms. They are constantly changing and in need of our love and attention.

Great Tips and Information!

I have loved listening to Annette and Sarah’s podcast, and have learned so much from them and their guests! My husband and I have been fixing up a lake cottage and are hosting our first family today! The content on the podcast has been so helpful as we have started our STR journey! I also resonate with the intro- whether you are “new or nervous”- it is what drew me in from the beginning!

Thank you, and keep up the great content!
