It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing The Everwoods 😍

Shoutout to our Columbus/Hocking Hills neighbors!

This 👏🏼 property 👏🏼 is 👏🏼 amazing 👏🏼

There are multiple properties on their 10 acres, but the big thing we want to highlight and encourage to all our listeners: they have the blueprints of their property available online for sale!

To all you hosts: whatever you have created for your short-term rental that you think could add value and be shared to others, whether it’s another product, another service, another potential revenue stream from something that you’ve already done and you’ve already gained expertise through, GO FOR IT!

We love the creativity and ingenuity! Please go check them out so you can see the way that they have positioned this and selling these blueprints for the property.

Kudos to you! Psst… we’re going to have to come down and visit 😉

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.
