Offseason Operations: Recommended Improvement Protocol for Your Short-Term Rental

Welcome back to the Hosting Hotline! This is an Ask Me Anything where each week we’ll answer your questions on Airbnb, STRs, real estate, and everything in between.

Samantha asks:

We are super slow right now. With the exception of trying to figure out how to fill my units, is there anything else you recommend that I can do to better prepare my space for when we are busy? Do you have suggested preventative maintenance? Do you use that time to update your listing? What do you recommend?
