Our Mistakes Making Property Offers & How to Avoid Them

We always try to be transparent about what is going on in our businesses in the hopes that doing so will serve you. We share our hopes, ideas, struggles, and more. And on that note, we’re going to share one of our most recent embarrassments because you can learn from it.

As we’ve worked together, we have evolved from wanting to focus on education (don’t worry, we’ll still be doing that!) and into growing our own short-term rental empire together. In fact, we just took the first step by making an offer on a property! This has been a long time in the making, and – honestly – we made it take a LOT longer than it needed to. That’s what we’re going to discuss.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Hiplandia! First of all, we love the name, and second of all, we don’t see this very often (so everyone should head over to their account to check it out!): they have a direct booking site and they manage multiple properties.

We’ve been talking a lot about direct booking lately, and their site has a handful of properties, but what we love is that you also get to see their portfolio. They are located in Long Beach, CA but they also have a few offshoot properties in Colorado.

Take a peek at how you can make it work and display multiple properties if you have them. So whether you add properties that are your own or whether you’re adding properties that you co-host or manage, Hiplandia has done it so nicely and we hope it inspires you!

Can’t wait to stay the next time we are in Long Beach!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
