Building a competitive listing starts with having a clear, accurate description of what renters will get. This leads to better ratings.
Here are a few things you can do to make your listing stand out.
Complete each section of your listing
A complete listing helps renters know what to expect from your space. Make sure you:
- Have up-to-date listing details: We regularly add new opportunities for you to add details about what you offer. Check your listing details from time to time to make sure everything’s filled out.
- Describe your space: Make your title and description attractive, detailed, and informative. Clearly explain what makes your space unique, including any amenities you offer, if any spaces are shared, and any rules renters should know.
- Upload high-quality photos: Your photos are renters' first impression of your space on the search results page.
- Set expectations: Outline expectations for renters in the House Rules and House Guidelines sections of your listing.
Use your reviews to improve
The quantity and quality of reviews from past tenants can impact your search performance. Regularly read your reviews and pay attention to ratings to learn how you can improve your tenants' experiences.
Make it easier for renters to book
Respond quickly to messages and booking requests to show renters that you’ll be an attentive, welcoming host.
Set competitive prices
Make sure your price is set to reflect changing demand: it fluctuates throughout the year. Check the prices of similar listings in your neighborhood to see how yours compare.
