Charge Premium Rates by Hosting Bachelorette Parties

Ep. 509

"Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and bachelorette weekends are an expanding short-term rental niche where you can charge premium rates and make bank.


But they can also come with some very BIG drawbacks.


So, how can you set the right expectations from the start so you can tap into the lucrative ‘girls trip’ market without ending up with noise complaints and destroyed property?


STR investor Kent He saw the demand for bachelorette trips in Scottsdale, Arizona, so he studied the data, took a chance, and jumped in—a move that paid off! Now, he's using his influence in the STR space to advocate for the development of affordable housing for all.


On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Kent joins me to talk about why it's vital to have a niche to be successful in the Airbnb space today and how his bachelorette-themed properties are skyrocketing his revenue.


We discuss how he gathered the data to make his properties a success and the role the Get Paid For Your Pad podcast played in helping him determine when the time was right to focus full-time on his short-term rentals.


He'll share why paying attention to the smallest details makes the most impact in the girl getaway niche and how to bring your vision for your properties to life to give your guests an unforgettable 5-star experience.


Listen in as Kent shares the 4 questions he uses to screen out problematic guests and the policies you must have in place if you want to successfully host girls weekends at your Airbnb properties. Plus, how a beauty bar and a Peloton bike help them attract right guest avatar.
