Time for a quick update I did to Turquoise! Creating that wow factor to help your Airbnb standout is critical to getting clickthrough of your unit. The more wow factor you can add to your Airbnb to help it stand out, the more people you will have click on your listing. Time for a quick update on my second Airbnb that I now have ready for professional pictures on Monday next week!
Here is the before picture:
Here is the after:
For those of you who don’t know, Turquoise is my second Airbnb unit that I closed on three weeks ago. It is a 3BD/2.5B located in the surrounding Orlando area.
This unit has a lot of good things going for it, but didn’t have any wow factors for a great featured image on my Airbnb listing.
I figured it was time to add that wow factor! It is so important in Airbnb to have great pictures. You want the main picture of your listing to draw the potential guests in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For this, I had a vision to add some accents to the wall in the living room downstairs. I had this vision, looked at a few different options and finally decided to move forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I blocked a day on the calendar for my GC to come out and install the accent wall. Swipe right to see the final output!
I honestly didn’t know if this was going to turn out well or not. I could not be happier with how it actually looks in person and on photos! I now feel like my listing will have that wow factor when I get professional pictures taken on Monday next week!
Do you like the accent wall?
All in all, the labor and materials for this cost $600. I believe this one picture and addition will help add $5-10 per night alone to my booking! From a return on investment standpoint (ROI), that will help generate another $1,368 in income assuming a 75% occupancy rate in one year. This will end up paying back in less than a half year!
- Creating that wow factor for your listing will help it stand out against the competition
- Calculate your ROI to understand if doing something like this would help your listing. Not only with this help my nightly rate, it will also help my occupancy rate.
- You don’t have to wait for all the remodeling of the home to be done before you have guests booking. Allow guests to book and then block off the random 1-2 days that naturally occur between bookings and utilize those for getting some work done!
